Limbo is a puzzle-platform video game developed by Playdead.
Worried about his sister’s fate, a boy enters LIMBO. So what is this limbo? According to the Christian belief, Limbo means the place where the unbaptized persons born before Christ go after death. Nothing is given about the story in the game.
In a dark forest, we immerse ourselves in the atmosphere from the first second. The game, which has a different line, has neither exaggerated graphics nor a sign telling us where to enter. We search our way in a black and white world between life and death.
Let’s talk about puzzles first. Puzzles are very cleverly crafted and require observation. The puzzles that we encounter in the game add a different joy to the game. We can neutralize enemies and open obstacles by using our purely practical intelligence.
Throughout the game, we travel to the forest city and abandoned factories. Special traps and enemies have been set up for each location.
Limbo has one of the best atmospheres in gaming history. You only hear the sound of nature and your footsteps. You are left in tension at the beginning of the game, anxiety in the middle, and happiness and anxiety at the end of the game.
With its incredible visuals, sound design, episode designs, and depressing world, Limbo is a game everyone should try.
