LIMBO

 

Format: XBLA

Developer: PlayDead

Publisher: N/A

Genre: Puzzle Platformer

Release Date: Summer 2010 (Xbox 360 exclusive)

 

Official Game Website (check out the video teaser on the site. Absolutely amazing. The concept art is astonishing as well).

 

Background

Limbo is the story of a young boy braving a bleak and mysterious world in order to determine the fate of his sister. The art is purely black and white, with the main character and platforming elements silhouetted against beautiful greyscale backdrops.

I must say the game looks pretty freaky and trippy at the same time.

I love the visual tones.

 

I have heard of this game before. I think, unless I am confusing it with something else.

You're probably confusing with Lucidity - I made the same mistake. I am intrigued by the puzzle platforming genre.

Yeah could be, it just sounds familiar. Anyway have the developers done anything of note before?

I've been keeping an eye on Limbo for about 3 years, when it was revealed at some event (GDC probably). I thought it probably went in a development limbo till it was nominated again at the IGF.

 

Love the art style. It actually looks very good in the trailer http://www.gametrailers.com/video/trailer-limbo/13937

 

That trailer is pretty old so certain things may have changed.

I gotta get some points. Depending upon the demo and reviews might get this. Definitely getting Lara. Possibly Hydro thunder and Castlevania.

 

Last years Summer of Arcade was better. But then again SC and Trials were two of the best games this gen never mind XBLA.

EG review.

 

9/10

 

That's Limbo: a game that has very few humans, but a surplus of humanity.

 

Sold!

 

I need points. Like 2400 or so. This and Lara.
