Limbo and Inside Coming to Retail this September

For those of you new to these games, Inside and Limbo are experiments in masterful visual expression that work to make the world even scarier than it already is.Dino Patti, co-founder and former CEO of Limbo and Inside developer Playdead, has announced Somerville, a new game from debut studio JUMPSHIP.The first video also reveals game’s apparent tag line: “In neon sky, our kin are lost, till future has returned to dust”.Director Chris Olsen had been working on the project since 2014 until subsequently collaborating with Dino Patti, the ex-CEO of Playdead who left the company a year ago. The game was revealed with a surprisingly short teaser trailer.Olsen has described Somerville as “a sci-fi action adventure that chronicles the lives of key individuals in the wake of a global catastrophe”. All we are given is a glimpse of what the game will look like. There is no word yet on a release date or platforms. Although the company website does shed a bit of light on the studio’s overarching development philosophy. “We strive to support our intent with an unwavering ethic in all facets of the process”, reads a small blurb. We’re intrigued to see more when they’re ready!
