Grimind Gameplay Footage Reminds Us A Bit Of Limbo

Paweł Mogiła is rather upfront about the influences that have been brought to bear on his upcoming 2D creepy platformer Grimind. Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Super Meat Boy are both name-checked - with the lone developer suggesting that he's rather gone for the former's atmosphere, with the gameplay dynamics of the latter.

But the silhouetted aesthetics, the physics puzzles, and the sparse music serve to remind us of one game in particular, and Mogila mentions it too: Limbo. It'll be interesting to see if Grimind can break out from the shadow of Playdead's masterpiece, and deliver an experience of its own, rather than a borrowed sense of dread.

There's more info and several alpha versions of the game over on Mogila's development blog, or you can check out Grimind's official website, and there's even a Facebook fanpage too. We'll be keeping our eyes on this one, with Mogila hoping to release before the end of the year.
