Playdead is bringing its Limbo game, a puzzle-based platforming adventure, to the Mac later this year, reports “Inside Mac Games” (http://www.insidemacgames.com).
Here’s how the game is described; “LIMBO is unique single player 2D Puzzle-Platform/Side-scrolling game. Dreamlike and created entirely in black and white, Limbo has often been spoken of in terms of game art. Yet while hauntingly beautiful, it is also philosophically provocative. The game features a gameplay mechanic that has come to be known as “Trial by Death” in which the player must die in-game in order to discover the solutions to the puzzles set before him. In the event of this, the player spawns at the last save point and must use what he has learned if he hopes to find his sister and get closure on the events set before him.”
