The next game from Copenhagen-based independent studio Playdead sounds like it will be worth a look for generally anyone who dug Limbo, but details have been scarce so far. The project is seemingly years away from completion at this point, and founder Dino Patti has previously commented that the team doesn't want to burn would-be players out by revealing too much information about the title prematurely.
Naturally, we're going to jump on any and all info we can find, even if it has to come from a grant listing by the Danish government. As spotted by Kotaku, the listing describes a story about a boy who is up against evil forces attempting to take over the world through experiments on human bodies.
In addition to the intriguing concept art above, the site also points to "Project 2" (working title) being a 2D platformer set in a 3D environment. Also, it's in color! The target platforms for the game are PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. I feel like I know enough at this point to want to not hear any more.
