Playdead, the esoteric indie developer behind creepy puzzle-platformers Limbo and Inside are currently looking for staff to work with the studio on a new, unannounced project.
As spotted by @MauroNL3, Playdead are advertising vacancies for what seems to be a full development team, including coders, designers, and artists, as well as a technical director. While the new game is not titled, the job listing describes a third-person science-fiction adventure, set in a remote corner of the universe. The technical director role asks for an individual with “open world, AAA, or other related experience.” Curiouser and curiouser.
Limbo (2010) and Inside (2016) both saw critical and commercial success thanks to their creepy and nightmarish atmosphere, simple but intriguing gameplay, and eccentric and mysterious characters and worlds. While we know nothing of this venture, logic dictates that Playdead will continue with the style that brought them to the dance, and hopefully we’ll be hearing more about this new venture soon.
