Newflash! Playdead’s fan favorite Inside, a platformer that’s essentially the spiritual successor to Limbo, is coming to both Nintendo Switch and iOS, according to a Playdead developer announced the news earlier via famitsu interview.
A short recap:
Inside is a popular indie side-scrolling puzzle-platformer. The game is dark, with color used sparingly to highlight parts of the environment, and mostly silent, with occasional musical cues. The player controls the boy who walks, runs, swims, climbs, and uses objects to overcome obstacles and progress in the game. The boy gains the ability to control bodies to complete certain puzzles, a mechanic that IGN’s Marty Sliva compared to a similar mechanic in The Swapper. At various points in the game, the player may discover hidden rooms containing glowing orbs. If all the orbs are deactivated during a play through, the player unlocks the game’s alternate ending.
If you missed the game on its debut across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This is your chance to try the game that takes similar cues from Limbo on IOS and Switch. While the game is making its way to two new platforms, unfortunately there wasn’t any information provided on exactly what will be different.
Here’s a trailer for those of you who haven’t played the game yet. Maybe this might intrigue you enough to play it.
Earlier this year, Playdead revealed the first piece of concept art from its next game. While details about the untitled project are few but given their reputation there’s plenty of reason to be excited for whatever’s next. Not only did Inside earn a 10 from IGN, it was also our runner-up for 2016’s Game of the Year.
Since the announcement It is safe to assume that we will have more news soon enough, So stay tuned!
