Limbo, one of the best puzzle platformers ever created, is now free for a limited time via the Xbox Store. The developer of the game, PlayDead, did a great job in creating this game and those who haven’t played it before are in for a good time.
Usually, Limbo is priced at $9.99, but since it’s free for a limited time, anyone even mildly interested should make a move now: as of now, it’s not known if Microsoft will make Limbo permanently free on the Xbox Store. Although we doubt it, but Microsoft has been doing some strange things lately, so right now anything is possible.
What is Limbo all about?
The game is about a little boy who is uncertain about the fate of his sister. He decides to enter limbo to find them, seemingly by accident. This 2D puzzle game’s aesthetics immediately catch the eye, as its black and white is unique and crucial to the gameplay and overall atmosphere of the game, which is fitting. Throughout the course of the game, the player will come across other humans who will try to kill the character, others who will run away for unknown reasons, adding to its overall creepiness.
Limbo is well favoured in the gaming communiting, boasting a Metacritic score of 90/100 for the Xbox 360 version. The PC version is the lowest of the bunch with 88/100, which is still a very good score nonetheless.
