Limbo is a puzzle-platform video game and the premiere title of independent Danish game developer Playdead Studios. The game was released in July 2010 on Xbox Live Arcade. Limbo is a 2D sidescroller, incorporating a physics system that governs environmental objects and the player character. The player guides an unnamed boy through dangerous environments and traps while searching for the boy's sister. The developer built the game's puzzles expecting the player to fail before finding the correct solution. Playdead called the style of play "trial and death", and used visually gruesome imagery for the boy's deaths to steer the player from unworkable solutions.

Hello guys,

today I want to focus on my current design. I hope someday Egon will be an atmospheric puzzle adventure game, with many deep feelings and a beautiful story. Ideally, the player will get the feeling that he watch a movie.

Since I can not program, I work with the program "Construct 2".

The main character is Egon. He is not in a good mood and may therefore ended up in this deserted forest. He seeks solutions and has many questions. He will have to deal with kind NPCs and many dangerous stuff. But its not yet confirmed.

Inside the church:

I hope you enjoyed it!

I love Halo and I don't even own an Xbox. Call of Duty 4 was amazing, but the series has gone downhill since then. It has become a "Thank goodness I wasn't there 10 seconds ago" (Jack Patilla) game. I myself honestly prefer games where you need to use strategy, make hard decisions, and take risks. Games like: COH, Deus Ex, Limbo, X-Com, and The Walking Dead. And yes, I do believe PC is best, Ps3 is next, then Xbox.

LIMBO, A brilliant game! Try the demo, you will not regret it.

PS, if you have a fear for arachnids, maybe you shouldn't play it... Not to mention, many times while playing this game you will remember those, now famous, words spoken by Admiral Ackbar: "It's a trap!"
