Default Limbo - Great Indie Game

A Must try. Fun, Artistic, and addicting. Just got released on Steam so I bought today and its worth every penny. Very simplistic controls and decent puzzles.

I've got the demo for this on the 360. Kinda neat. I will probably end up snagging it on steam at the end of the year when they have their big christmas sales.

You already DDo.

I saw this game day of release, the demo is only 117Mb on Steam - Looks interesting so i'll try it out later.

EDIT: Just played a bit - I love that art style, very effective. I could see this easily becoming very addictive.

My friend bought this last week and I must say I'm impressed. The art direction is amazing and the gameplay and puzzles pretty solid. Personally I'll probably wait until it's on sale to buy it though. The current price is pretty fair though, so if I'm buying something else soon I may just cave.

Good game, careful use of sound (the game is mostly silent) and some decent puzzles. Some are trial and error for sure, worth the price though.
