“Limbo is one of those gems that slipped past mainstream gamers like a cat in the night. The game arrived on Xbox in 2010 and slowly found its way to more platforms once players caught wind of its uniqueness. Sheer storytelling quality, simplicity of controls & interesting puzzles enabled Limbo to compete with 3D blockbusters, with a tale told entirely in black and white and no soundtrack to speak of. The game starts in utter silence, with the blinking eyes of a young boy lying in a forest. Time to get up.”
