Since I know most of the people that might possibly be reading this I realize the likelihood of you owning an Xbox 360 is very low - consequently the interest in this post about a 360-exclusive will be similarly low. But that won't stop me. I just read that one indie game that has spurred my curiousity will be available on Xbox Live Arcade on July 21 for $15 and I'm pretty sure I'm going to download it. That game is Limbo - a stylistic 2D black and white platformer/puzzle game. Think a darker, more somber version of Little Big Planet. Less yarn, more corpses. Should last about 5-6 hours which sounds just about right for me at the moment.

If you care to check out the trailer/gameplay - here ya go.

That does look pretty good. We'll expect a full review in a few weeks.

By the way, be sure to check out Littlebigplanet's new Marvel Comics level pack and costumes. If I was still playing LBP, it would be a must buy along the lines of their Metal Gear Solid and Pirates of the Carribbean releases.

One of these days I am going to have to actually get LBP and give it a legit playthrough. Rare for me to overlook a system exclusive that got accolades like it did.

Thought you might want to see this link.

someone recreated Limbo in LittleBigPlanet. Not a bad job if I say so myself

Pretty cool. Have you downloaded it to actually play yet? I wonder if it matches the real game very closely and how much of it he did. I assume they will take it down pretty soon as copyright infringment though.

I haven't downloaded it yet, but I think I read that he hasn't recreated the whole game yet. Just the 1st part.

When LBP first launched the moderators took down a lot of the recreated games, but now either they don't moderate as much or they gave up trying to keep up due to the sheer volume of levels out there. I played a Mario Bros. level just a few nights ago. I've seen Contra levels, etc.
