Hollywood has a difficult time innovating itself, usually running through film fads in periodic bursts of explosions, war dramas, too-witty children backed by indie-band soundtracks and 3D fantasy. Something truly different, yet just as resonant, is unlikely to be made in the backlot of Para...

Playdead is celebrating Limbo's first birthday by giving all of us a present -- a PSN release date for the gruesome yet gorgeous indie darling. Limbo will be creepy-crawling onto PSN July 19 in the United States, July 20 in Europe and at a to-be-announced date in Japan. The Limbo soundtrack, w...

Shortly before last summer's release of Limbo – that year's top Xbox Live Summer of Arcade title "by a long stretch" – the ESRB erroneously listed the PlayStation 3 and PC platforms in addition to the Xbox 360. Developer Playdead's Dino Patti told us, "We are only launching the title ...

When trying to work out the best way to describe Limbo, I keep coming back to Edvard Munch. I've always been fascinated with Munch, an artist most famous for painting The Scream. It's his other works, however, that tend to stick with me, particularly his Madonna. As a work of art, Munch's Madonna p...

It looks like the upcoming XBLA platformer Limbo isn't headed to the PS3 or PC after all. After the ESRB listed the game for the two additional platforms, we contacted Playdead for more information and, according to Playdead's Dino Patti, the game is not coming to either the PC or PS3. "We are only...

According to the ESRB, it looks like the Xbox won't be the only platform stuck in Limbo this summer. Assuming the recent ESRB listing is accurate, Playdead's terrifying, striking platformer is also headed to the PlayStation 3 and PC. Definitely good news if true, given how much we enjoyed the game's...

Very few games manage to instill a pure kind of terror such as Limbo, an aptly-titled puzzle-platformer in development for the past four years. Winner of multiple IGF awards, Limbo is a beautiful and haunting journey, one that must be experienced to be understood -- and thankfully, you'll be able t...

We can't help but notice you checking out that Limbo screenshot above, and who can blame you? The IGF-nominated puzzle platformer isn't just a real head-turner, it's got brains to match. Even better, developer Playdead tells us you'll be able to help its young protagonist look for his sister on the...
