Anyone else played this one? Really atmospheric haunting puzzle platformer. I somehow missed this in 2010 but it's an absolute gem.

You play as a little kid who wakes up in the middle of a dark forest and that's basically all the context you are given. The game is entirely in black and white, but it's still beautiful and atmospheric. The soundtrack is minimalist but also beautiful.

Anyone who hasn't heard of it should check it out. Anyone who has played it I'd love to hear what you thought of it. You can download on PS3, 360, and Steam.

It's on sale for $2.50 on Steam right now. No excuse not to grab it. It's a great game.

This game is absolutely outstanding.

Play exclusively at night in a darkened room to maximize the experience.

Simply a fantastic game, the use of lighting is beautiful (e.g for silhouettes), puzzles are tricky, frustrating at times but overall enjoyable and the overall atmosphere is what draws you into the experience completely.

This game is amazing, it's one of the best indie platformers out there. If you liked the atmosphere and feel of this game, you should really check out Knytt Stories.

Bought this a while ago on Xbox. Love it. Some great puzzles with beautiful visuals. One of the best, if not the best, arcade games out there.

Fantastic game! Haven't ever got around to finishing it (maybe this thread will get me playing again). But the art style is great, music fit perfectly, and it's a classic ode to old platformers. Get it!

Haha wow, completely forgot about Limbo. Such a fucking great game, I refused to stop playing until I beat it in one go-through. It's so creepy, it leaves you wanting more at the end and wondering wtf is the true story with the boy and his sister

Both Limbo and Braid are superb games. I have all achievements for both sans the ridiculous play with [low#] of deaths ones. Another great game in the vain of these two is The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom for Xbox Live Arcade. It's very good though I have yet to finish it;



And if you're into games with unique visual styles in general then you MUST get Trine 2. It's extraordinarily refreshing Finnish art style and outstanding bright and detailed visuals are simply are marvel. Probably the most beautiful game I've ever seen;

Yeah I have all the achievements in Limbo except for the beat it in one play with less than 5 deaths. Doesn't seem worth it.

I'll check Trine 2 out.

yeah, winterbottom is another good game i have that i've yet to finish.

i'll check out trine 2 eventually but i've got to many sidescrollers (limbo, braid, winterbottom, rayman origins, fez, dust, outland, sonic cd, and super meat boy), to finish before i get anymore of them.

Agreed. I usually aim to get all "obtainable" achievements but skip on ones that could result in lots of time with the possibility of getting nothing. Can't stand achievements like that.
