First Reaction: Limbo
Dark, morbid, fantastic. I never really really got Braid. It was a fun platformer, but something made me hesitant on the hype machine behind the game. Maybe it was the art style, maybe I just never connected with the main character. Limbo is my Braid. I get Limbo and what it is setting out to do. I get why this game has been getting rave reviews and what all the pre-release talk was about. The haunting art style and tone, to the fun original platforming. I have not seen a game this inventive or creative in quite some time. AceofNades will have a review posted in a few days, but atleast download the trial and see the magic Limbo offers.
