Steam sale - $2!!!

#1 Posted by Xeirus (1298 posts) -

Just putting it up in case anyone is missing it, Limbo is only $2.50 on steam for today.

If you haven't played this game (or just couldn't beat it) you need to get this!

Is it really worth $2.49?  I'm just going to endlessly, stupidly compare it to Braid.

I still don't feel like playing it. Just aaaah not my style. Too deliberate, I guess. I want a more action-focused platformer. Meat Boy is more my pace.

It is a great game. Never played Braid, only know that people love comparing the two are 'artistic games' but thats besides the point. The puzzles are great, the atmosphere is simply astounding and the """narrative""" it has is really well done.

That's $.50 cheaper than Alpha Protocol was 2 months ago!

...Sure, I'll bite for that price.

Downloading it now.  My understanding is that it's super minimalistic, and a lot of people just talk about art style.  I like cool art and puzzles, so hopefully it lives up to expectations.
 
Oh, and you should REALLY play Braid.  Some of the coolest puzzle action I've ever encountered.  And artistically sublime.

Damn you and your misleading titles! I was going to buy it, but I don't have the $.49 to spare. That's too rich for my blood.

How long is it, by the way?  I'm just curious if I should just plow through it in one sitting tomorrow.

Braid is far better- better puzzles, beautiful colors, and it actually has music. It's really good music, at that.

Limbo is one of the most overrated games in years, but perhaps it's worth a couple bucks.

I'd say three hours. I would not expect too much. It is no braid.

@csl316: It's definitely worth $2.50. Unless you know the game isn't your style, it's worth a try, and this current price isn't asking too much.

@whistlebottom: Yeah, $2.49 is kind of a no brainer.
 
Though my purchase of Chu Chu Rocket on Android for 99 cents might be a better deal.

Go for it. It has an amazing atmosphere and some nice puzzles. Although, I would say that the whole experience seemed a bit hollow - it set itself up for an interesting story, but ultimately, the narrative seemed much too ambiguous and never felt like it really went anywhere.
