Indie Games You Have to Play: Limbo

Limbo is one of the most impressive games I've played this year, even if it's already available since July 2010. I've been delaying this post for too long, but I only got around to play it myself a few days ago.

The puzzle-platformer from Danish developers Playdead have created a very intense game about a boy searching for his sister's fate in a grainy monochrome world that is Limbo. The game features some awesome visuals and moody locations, all kept in a silent and blurry black-and-white. The controls are pretty straight-forward, but the gameplay still comes with challenging puzzles a lot of sudden deaths, especially when you're playing Limbo for the first time.

The game's story keeps you guessing what's happening and where you are going, but you will certainly keep going anyway. This one's a real gem and I suggest you grab it yourself for about ten dollars over at Steam. It's absolutely worth the few bucks! But see for yourself:

Hm...the ending kinda was like the ending of Lost. Only that I didn't enjoy nearly as much as I did with Lost. It was okay, but I waited the whole time for it to turn great, for some big revelation that didn't happen. It did have a cool vibe, the puzzles were okay, but all in all it just didn't live up to my expectations.
