Ever heard of it? It's for the Xbox 360 but you have to buy it. My brother got the Demo and we both freaked out because of how disturbing and creepy it is.

For some reason, I have a funny feeling ToT has something to do with it's production...?

This game looks awesome, so maybe i'll convince my brother to buy the full version.

I think you meant http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-360/limbo . The link you provided goes to the Wikipedia page of the Catholic theology of limbo. Razz

I've played it, and enjoyed it a lot. Excellently atmospheric, though the ending does seem like a bit of a drop-off.

Yes, That is the game I meant. Laughing
Do you have the full version? All I know is what i've read on Wiki about the ending and such. Sounds like a cliffhanger. Mad

I don't have it myself, but I played through it bit by bit thanks to one of my generous Xbox-owning friends.

We met one of the creators of the games at the European Innovative Games Awards. They also won one. Nice person.
I love how the game looks and I like the atmosphere. But I can't play it because it's too difficult.

I heard so much about it on 8bitBar Podcast and even watched a youtube gameplay video or two. I wish it were available for PC.

I have the game for 360. Its really fun and defiantly worth the price. Really makes you wonder whats going on in this world the boy is in as you progress, and actually makes you want to progress in this crazy world to save your sister. I don't know how a LIMBO 2 would work though, seeing as the ending doesn't really leave much of a cliff hanger, but I am curious as to see what game the company will make next.

I feel this post above mine might be spam.

I've played Limbo on a friends 360 and it's amazing. I don't think it's actually difficult, it's just meant for you to die multiple times until you figure out what you have to do. The puzzles themselves are not that complicated.

It reminded of a stylized, refreshed version of the Donkey Kong series.

I heard rumours of Limbo being ported to PC. I hope they are true, I've been wanting to play it for such a long time.

Unconventional narrative about the interactions amongst a group of people in a small town in Alaska, each of whom has guards a secret.
