LIMBO Special Edition Comes With 3D GlassesBy: Sean Patterson - July 2, 2012
Everyone’s favorite high-contrast indie game just got a new special edition with tons of goodies. Playdead, the independent Danish development studio behind the award-winning LIMBO, announced today that LIMBO: Special Edition is now available for order in online game stores.
The special edition, which Playdead states was created for fans, includes DRM-free versions of LIMBO for both the Mac and PC, as well as a Steam gift key for the game. It also includes a stand-alone soundtrack by composer Martin Stig Andersen, seven original art cards, a sticker of the main character’s head, and a pair of 3D glasses. All of this comes in a special edition hard cover box.
LIMBO is an indie side-scrolling platformer in which a young, shadowy protagonist escapes death and dismemberment through his wits alone. The stark black-and-white art direction of the game got the title even more attention than its puzzle-solving gameplay.
According to Playdead, the game has received nearly 100 awards and has sold over 1 million copies on various platforms. It was recently featured in the latest Humble Indie Bundle, which raised over $5 million for indie developers and charity. Gamers can choose to play the game in stereoscopic 3D, which is the reason for the inclusion of the glasses in the special edition.
