Eerie Platformer Limbo To Hit PlayStation 3, PC And Xbox 360

Microsoft's annual Summer of Arcade is firing up this week with Limbo, a dark and subversive platformer from Danish developers Playdead. The annual promotion is a time when some of the year's best downloadable titles hit consoles, and from Jake Gaskill's review, it looks like we've already got a frontrunner for best digital game of 2010 so far. Here's a taste:

"...Limbo is a top to bottom masterpiece. The last time I was this enthralled with a game world and a narrative (despite the fact that there is absolutely no explanation whatsoever about who the kid is, what happened to him, if he’s actually in “limbo” in the traditional sense, etc.) was BioShock, one of my favorite games of all time. It grabs hold of you at the title screen, and doesn’t let you go until after the credits roll."

Limbo hits Xbox Live Arcade on Wednesday. Read Jake's review to find out more about what makes it tick.
