A bleak and beautiful puzzle platfomer, Limbo is an artistic masterpiece as well as a great genre entry. As a young boy looking for his sister lost somewhere in limbo, most puzzles propel you forward (or kill you in the process). Although Limbo’s stark, high-contrast landscape is arguably more about atmosphere and interpreting a narrative experience than it is puzzle-solving, obstacles do get a bit tricky. Don’t miss this.
