Limbo shows that 2D can be terrifying

When was the last time a 2D game ever frightened you or made you terrified of your every move? If games don’t scare you at all, then I’ll leave you out, but an upcoming game from independent game studio Playdead looks like it will terrify.

Playing Abe's Oddysee and trying to run a huge section through loads of scrabs. All the characters are silhouetted and those scrabs just run at you. The music makes it pretty intense

Yep yep, Abe's adventure definitely was a scary one.

Heart of Darkness was also pretty creepy. Loved that game.. poor little kid.

Oddworlds Abe and Heart of darkness were 2 of the best ....

I have been mentioning this game "Limbo" many times for years now.Finally coming....

Every nook and crannie looks to be a danger zone,lots of quick thinking type puzzles of the action variety look to be the games main draw point.Interesting!

Nice style,stands out,looks to have potential.I really want more details,but this could be a special little title.Nice to see outside of the box games still alive,hyper realism has'nt taken over totally yet.

Check out Bounty arms,coming to XBLA and PSN later this year. A LBP meets Ratchet look and feel to me.....A video and test demo are at the link...

I have been working on a 2D horror game for a while now.. and it has not been easy.

R2D22652d ago

How far along are you with the game and what platform are you releasing it on?

Crayola2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

It will be for PC.. and it is taking forever since I am making it by myself.
