Return of the Obra Din

Lucas Pope was the designer/developer of the brilliant Papers, Please, an engrossing and unsettling game that cast you in the role of immigration inspector.

Now, Pope has announced his next game, and it's titled Return of the Obra Din. Here's a description (from the RPS article linked in the previous sentence):
...the tale of an investigation into an abandoned ship and planning an art style reminiscent of the earliest games, something he’s termed “1bit rendering.” We’ll play as an “insurance adjustor for the East India Company’s London Office” with the intent to “find means to board the ship and recover the captain’s logbook for assessment.”

There's also a .gif file to show you the look of the game (which reminds me of the black and white Macintosh era. It all looks fascinating and certainly worth keeping an eye on.
