Well, stick my head on a spike, Limbo’s only gone and been released on Playstation Network.
Long the preserve of those plucky Xbox types and their wonderful flying machines (erm… XBLA), Copenhagen-based Playdead’s ingenious puzzler wowed indie-sceptics with its highly stylised, hand-drawn visuals when it was released back in the day. Indeed, its moody, black and white backdrops, silhouetted characters and haunting atmospherics bravely set this little beaut apart from even its big budget peers. Well, backdrops yes – that, and the near continual, gory death inflicted on your small child avatar – impaled, sliced, and repeatedly speared by giant spiders simply to evidence your pathetic lack of gaming ability.
Anyhoo, now PS3 owners can get their very own piece of this infant-maiming classic for a mere $14.99 – which, is, ooh five shillings and a thrupenny bit in old money. And if you act fast, you can actually grab yourselves a 20% discount (available for two weeks, you penny-pinching fiends)
PS, PC Steam-fans, don’t despair – you can grab this sucker on August 2nd.
