Microsoft debuted Cocoon during its Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase today. It will release in 2023.

Cocoon is a new game from Jeppe Carlsen, the lead game play designer on the indie hits Limbo and Inside. Carlsen is working with Geometric Interactive for this new game.

While Limbo and Inside are 2D, Cocoon is a top-down affair with 360 degrees of movement.
