Abstract Platformer 140 Announced for PS4 and PS Vita

April 20, 2016Written by Michael Briers

Game Designer Jeppe Carlsen, best known for his work on melancholic indie gem Limbo, has lifted the lid on his new project — an abstract platformer by the name of 140

Originally released for PC and Mac back in 2013, Carlsen’s title is being reworked for PS4, Vita, Xbox One, Wii U, and 3DS by Abstraction Games in partnership with Double Fine.

Blending minimalistic level design with rhythm-based platforming, the developer has also welcomed the help of Playdead co-worker Jakob Schmid to score the electronic soundtrack. 

[140] is an old-school platformer set in a world of abstract colorful graphics, but it has a musical twist. You’ll need to overcome obstacles that are controlled by an energetic, yet melancholic electronic soundtrack — meaning you’ll need a heightened sense of rhythm to sync up your every move and jump to the music.

140 will make a beeline for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita some time this summer. What do our readers make of Double Fine’s abstract title?
