Intriguing. I find the art style to be highly artistic, aesthetically speaking of course. It reminds me of those black & white movies from long long ago. And the minimal approach to storytelling, how brave ! A little boy actually finds a way to enter Limbo (wow!), hoping to save his sister from the eternal darkness. He does it out of love...
Beautiful.
Come to think of it, it's not every day that you see something so simple, yet pure. It may just look like a pointless 2D platformer to the unwashed FPS crowd, but to me, it's so much more. It's an honest and uncompromising exploration of grief, an interactive plunge into the coldest depths of the soul.

Heh, reading this you wouldn't believe I won't even be playing this. Yeees, sadly I haven't been blessed with Microsoft's miracle machine just yet. Must be, I'm not worthy of it. I imagine I haven't proven myself to my Silicon Valley benefactors... Lord, if only I knew what to do.

But it's alright :) Better men than I will get to enjoy this piece of Art, so I couldn't be more happy. Have fun guys and don't worry about me ! My wisdom and warmth are great substitutes for fun.

'Uncertain of his Sister's Fate, a Boy enters LIMBO. There are no refunds for this item.'

That sounds like the corniest punchline ever.

Played it last night, whilst it is visually beautiful, i'm dissapointed to say it got boring really fast, perhaps i need to play it some more and give it a chance but the game is only like 3 hours long and for 1200points not worth it, should have been 560 or 800 points.
  EricHalfBee: It is a lot of points for 3 or so hrs. I noticed I wa…
