OnLive Released Indie Hit LIMBO to the Marketplace

Award winning indie hit LIMBO is the newest member of the OnLive marketplace. The game is priced at $9.99 in the US ($6.99 PlayPack) and £6.99 in the UK (£4.89 PlayPack).

LIMBO is an indie platformer published and developed by Playdead.

LIMBO, a black and white puzzle-platforming adventure, puts players in the role of a young boy traveling through an eerie and treacherous world in an attempt to discover the fate of his sister. You have to solve many puzzles, and defeat some monsters along the way.

Decipher the challenging puzzles and discover the fate of the boy's sister.

LIMBO is simple and brilliant, the result of game + art. Game mechanics are great and its mood quite unique. Puzzles are quite easy but since mistakes often mean death and restart, that's a good thing, to avoid them into becoming annoying. Checkpoints are well and often placed. The game reminds one of Another World (Out Of This World), a timeless classic developed by Eric Chahi, which is a game loved by many. The sound in the game is also amazing, focused on details and ambience with no music, making it's dark mood even more creepy. The weakest point is the game lenght... quite short... they could've made the game a little longer, with harder puzzles near the end, but for 10 bucks it's more than worth it.

Metascore: 88
