Dark Indie Platformer Limbo May Be Headed To the iPhone

By , on February 28, 2012

Independent developers Playdead are looking for a programmer to port their games to new platforms, prompting speculation from NowGamer that their acclaimed platformer Limbo may see an iPhone release.

Limbo was originally released in 2010 on the Xbox Live Arcade platform, and has since been ported to the PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac.

Playdead's job listing mentions that the studio are investigating new platforms for possible ports, including iOS.

Adored by critics and players alike, Limbo has you controlling a nameless boy exploring a threatening forest.

Its creepy atmosphere and stark art style ensured that Limbo stood out in a genre usually known for its primary colours and jaunty tone.

For now, consider this a tantalising possibility rather than a dead cert, but Limbo's 2D visuals and simple gameplay would definitely make it a perfect fit for the iOS platform.
