Limbo Coming to Smartphones?
A job posting at game site Gamasutra is suggesting that indie studio Playdead is attempting to bring their games to mobile platforms including iOS and Android. The posting is asking for programmers to port the company’s games to new platforms specifically naming iOS, Windows Phone 8, Android, and Google’s Native Client NACL.
The ad reads:
We have already released a game on X360, PS3, Windows, OSX and OnLive and we are continuously investigating other possible platforms. We are currently investigating following new platforms; iOS, Win8, Android, NACL and other platforms could become relevant as well.
Unfortunately, Playdead been keeping mum about the entire situation. Playdead co-founder Dino Patti told Eurogamer this morning that they don’t have any official announcement regarding the rumor at this moment.
Limbo is the unique puzzle-platformer that released in 2010 for XBLA. It’s since been ported to multiple platforms, earned numerous awards and sits highly regarded on Metacritic with a score of 90. I’ve called it one of the 15 Must-Play XBLA Games and Juan scored it an outstanding 9.5 in his review of the PSN version.
