Limbo With a Flashlight

Two years ago, Danish developer Playdead brought its innovative game Limbo to Xbox Live Arcade. It was an instant hit, with its creepy, black-and-white aesthetic, but if you could see its world with the lights on… Is this what it would look like?

No. No, it’s not.

Limbo was a fantastic game whose stock in trade was creating a singular, foreboding atmosphere. (See my review for more.) Since its debut on Xbox Live, it’s become available for multiple other formats, including PSN, Steam, Windows, OnLive, and most recently it’s been added to the Mac App Store.

The folks at Dorkly are obviously huge fans of the game to have come up with this clever little one-minute tribute. It’ll mean more to you if you’ve played the game, but it’s pretty cool, regardless. Just don’t stop watching before the end — there’s one last twist you won’t see coming.
