LIMBO Coming To Macs Later This Year

Playdead recently announced work on a Mac version of its puzzle based platforming adventure, LIMBO. The game puts players in the role of a boy on a journey of exploration, uncertain of his sister's fate, or his own. LIMBO features a "hauntingly beautiful" art style, Trial by Death puzzle solving, and unique 2D sidescrolling puzzle solving gameplay.

An Independent Games Festival award-winning title, LIMBO is unique single player 2D Puzzle-Platform/Side-scrolling game. Dreamlike and created entirely in black and white, LIMBO has often been spoken of in terms of game art. Yet while hauntingly beautiful, it is also philosophically provocative. The game features a gameplay mechanic that has come to be known as "Trial by Death" in which the player must die in-game in order to discover the solutions to the puzzles set before him. In the event of this, the player spawns at the last save point and must use what he has learned if he hopes to find his sister and get closure on the events set before him.
Playdead plans to release LIMBO for Macs before the end of the year. Learn more about the game at the link below.
