Oh my. If there's one company we've been champing at the bit to see more from it's PlayDead. The swedish developers behing the sublime Limbo, they've been very quiet up until now. But they've broken the silence with a few scant details about Limbo's successor and also published a rather tantalising teaser image from their next game. 

Codenamed 'Limbo 2' but not described necessarily as a direct sequel to Limbo, all you can see in the screenshot is an eerily familiar looking boy dragging something in a dark rain-soaked landscape. Not picked out purely in shadow this time, but looking superbly lit. 

PlayDead describes the premise as "A young boy's struggle to confront and defeat the forces of evil, through questionable experiments on human bodies". The other key detail in the hastily translated detail sheet about the game is that it's again a 2D platformer, taking place in a 3D world, and will be 'in colour' though as you can see from the screenshots, thankfully not too much colour. 

It's given me the horn, big time. 

PlayDead received $1,000,000 from the Swedish government to continue operating and to continue work on Limbo's successor. Imagine our government doing that for brit development studios? No, you can't can you.
