horrific ends to a child is another way of saying they are not innocent even in the eyes of God when Thee knows children do not know the meaning of Sin. That is where the church is wrong!!!! WHAT IS LIMBO....

Some countries prohibit video game violence in situations where children can be infured/killed I'm guessing they might have a problem with this game.

It looks very graphic.. I'd like to see some blood but damn nice.

Just WOW! This game is so immersive!!! The lack of music, the astounding creppy visuals, the kids.... pure art. Getting this game ASAP! (and that spider at the end... nice touch)

@deltaalphagamma Haha people these days are sooo sensible (to not say another heavy word)... death is death, no matter if child or not. Did you know in Limbo there's a place for children too? (well, according to Dante).

Played the demo... and honestly wasn't expecting much, but within the first minute or so the game actually begins to immerse you into its gloomy and dark atmosphere; and a minute later you actually realize how epic this game really is.

@optimuserik Yea, definitely not a game for little kids. But it looks great.

To the Bleeding heart: I understand that having children can really change the way that one views violence to children. I have a little girl, and the thought anything bad happening to her makes me feel violently ill. With that being said, i can very much tell the difference between reality and a shadow puppet in a video game. So while I do respect deltaalphagamma's opinion, i would very much appreciate it if he kept it to himself (in this case)...

Look like a hellish version of A Boy and His Blob.

This is quite a sick game, I'm not gonna buy it, it should be forbidden, nothing nice or cool at all! watching poor children getting killed in various ways

pedram some of the best games ever made had no plot and were minimalistic. They don't call them classics for no reason. This game looks excellent, and is a great look at a bygone era of gaming; some might say a golden age.

Hate these minimalistic games without a plot and engaging narrative. These games could easily have been made decades ago and wasting 360s power. (examples: Limbo, Braid, etc)

looks fantastic...the visual art style is something that I have yet to see before...but i think the slow pace and the adventure/puzzle gameplay would grow old on me after while..

@TheVGamer Limbo = referring to the "edge" of Hell... But also the first circle of hell in Dante's Divine Comedy. Thanks TheVGamer

@sternh It's the first circle of hell in Dante's Divine Comedy. Btw, this game is truly masterpiece even though it doesn't have Oscar-winning story or ultra-realistic visuals. But it's really powerful.
