We loved Limbo, likening the game to “that feeling you get after a really intense, really weird
dream... that uneasy sense of dislocation as your head continues
to reel from the impact of what you perceived the night before.”
And if you like the idea of a well-regarded platformer but aren't so
hot on all that weirdy-beardy “uneasy dislocation” business, then maybe this
video is for you, as it will basically ruin the acclaimed sidescroller's scares for evermore. Take it away, Dorkly...
If platform restrictions
prevent you from enjoying this as much as you'd like (that is, if your
chosen games machine doesn't support the game), you may also be
interested to know that Playdead looks set to port the game to a new
range of machines. A job listing (via Mana Tank) reveals the company's
“currently investigating” the possibility of expanding onto “iOS,
Win8, Android, NACL and other platforms could become relevant as
well.” So, um, if the only games you play are on your iPad, you may
be able to better appreciate this video in a few months' time...
