Yet another Independent Games Festival finalist is headed to Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade. Joining the spastic platformer Super Meat Boy is the absolutely surreal Limbo from PLAYDEAD.
I had a chance to play a good chunk of Limbo as a judge for the IGF and was absolutely floored by what PLAYDEAD has put together. Limbo, which follows the journey of a small and fragile boy as he explores the woods, is one of the creepiest platformers I've ever played. The spiders...shudder.
That's a good thing, by the way.
Limbo and the rest of the IGF finalists will be on display at the Game Developers Conference next week in San Francisco. A number of us from G4 will be attending and covering GDC live.
