PostSubject: Limbo is a platformer   Thu Aug 04, 2011 11:40 pm

I saw this review (<-- this is a link) of Limbo at IGN the other day and decided to give it a go. Normally I'm not a big fan of platformers of any kind, but the mood, visuals and overall style of the game really appealed to me and I ended up playing it for about two hours. With my girlfriend watching on in excitement. The puzzles get more difficult as you go but never become annoyingly frustrating. I mean, how can you get tired of seeing a small kid get mutilated in all sorts of terrible ways?

I heartily recommend it to anyone, regardless if you're a platformer fan or not.

Edit: By the way, links should have a different colour. Now it just looks like normal text.

Is this a part of the Humble Indie Bundle 3 ? Is that how you got it ?

Nope. I read the review and then bought it on Steam at regular price. Again, highly recommended.

The game do looks freaky and interresting. Saw that it came to psn as well a few days ago. I might buy it, depending on price.

It's an indie developer who's behind it so it's cheap. I got it for 10 euros. There's also a free demo on steam.

I love this game.
It;s freaking depressive and...furious.
just what I need to forget about smoking.
The thing I lliked the most is that the game doesn't have any loading screens.
