We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: NimbleBit can’t really make a bad game. I don’t think they’ve ever tried, mind you, but thus far there have been few releases of theirs that we’d ever describe as anything less than stellar. (Take a look at Tiny Tower, Nimble Quest or Capitals to see what I mean). So when they start dropping hints about their next possible project? You’d better believe our ears perk up.
Studio co-founder Dave Marsh has recently started posting images of something called ‘Bit City’ to his Twitter account. When asked about it by a follower, he describes the project as “maybe our 2nd to next project,” stating that they’re already working on something else, and what we’re seeing of Bit City amounts to little more than R&D right now.

So what is their next project? We’re not sure, but we’re going to reach out to the team to see what we can learn. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for Bit City. If NimbleBit accomplished as much as they did with a tiny tower, imagine what they could do with a whole town.
UPDATE: We’ve heard from David Marsh on the subject. For clarification, here’s how he describes Bit City in its current status: “It’s not really a project yet, mostly just me playing around with the art style. If it becomes a real thing we will make sure to keep you in the loop!”
