Playdead reveal art for their secretive Inside follow-up

Playdead is working on their follow-up to the bleak puzzle nightmare Inside, and while the wait will certainly be worth our time, the desire to know terrible delights are coming our way is certainly eating away at us. The team has released two images so far, giving us a glimpse at a snowy world that doesn't have our best interests in mind. Also, maybe we're…

Special edition of Inside, complete with what is presumably a ball of gruesomely quivering limbs

Don't tell John, but Playdead's adventur-o-puzzle Inside, with its abyss-black humour and boundlessly wicked imagination, is quietly one of my favourite games of the past few years. So much so that I seriously flirted with the idea of ordering its $375 special edition, before remembering the physical possessions are a burden, unless of course they're plastic robots. Much has been made of the fact that…

Limbo and Inside devs tease new moody game

Playdead, the Danish studio behind grimdark puzzle-platformers Limbo and Inside, have shared a sneaky image from their next game. It seems to show a pilot or spaceman wearing a deployed parachute watching a fiery crash and, well, I won't assumptively declare the game will following the Limside model but with a picture like that I could certainly believe it.

Inside opens up with demo, tears Denuvo from its guts

A demo of Playdead's grimpretty puzzle-platformer Inside [official site] is now out. Given that John found their follow-up to Limbo a bit empty but Pip adored its animation and Alec enjoyed its dark comedy, you may have been waiting for the official centralised verdict of the RPS Advent Calendar. Our word is, of course, law but I suppose it's fine if you start forming your…

Thoth Turns What You Know About Arcade Shooters Upside-Down

Thoth [Steam page] is an interesting exercise in deconstructing the twin-stick shooter from the developer who brought us 140. Jeppe Carlsen, who also works with Limbo and Inside devs Playdead, has come up with something fairly unique here that you might want to try out if you enjoy Games That Feel Out of the Ordinary.

Trial And Terror: Limbo Free Today & Tomorrow

Limbo [official site] is a gloomy platform game with giant spiders and sparks of electricity haunting the night. It led to my favourite RPS phrase, when John and Kieron shouted at each other about the game. That phrase is "Rick Dangerous for Goths". I'm on the fence when it comes to Limbo (being on the fence is a bit like being in Limbo) but I'd…

Inside, From Limbo Devs, Is Coming On July 7th

Darkly-darkly platformer Limbo split opinion around these parts when it was released back in 2010, with John loving it and Kieron thinking it was Rick Dangerous for goths. Maybe they were both right? Anyway, now PlayDead's long-awaited follow-up Inside [official site] is due to arrive imminently, and there's a new teasing teaser trailer below.

A Different Kind Of Limbo: Playdead Announce Inside

Limbo was a darkly atmospheric platform game which, depending on who you ask, was either a playfully morbid exploratory adventure or cruelly-designed Rick Dangerous for Goths. (I didn't mind the trial and error). If you were a fan though, you might be excited to know that developers Playdead Games have announced their new game, Inside, and it seems to be similarly about putting a small…
