10 Of The Best One-Night Games

Whether it’s an RPG that tells a story over dozens of hours, or a strategy game that takes months to master, games are often a considerable time investment. For many people this is central to gaming’s appeal: nowhere else in art can you find such complete worlds to lose yourself in or such stern challenges to overcome.

If Limbo Was A Movie, It Would Look Like This

The eerie, kind of creepy atmosphere of 2010’s Limbo is captured perfectly in this short film by Jesper Eriksson. It’s kind of uncanny, to the point that I was surprised to find no mention of the game in an interview with Eriksson about the short.

New Game From The Lead Designer Of Limbo Pops With Colour

Ingenious puzzles and a chilling black-and-white aesthetic helped make 2011’s Limbo a critically acclaimed hit. Now, the guy who crafted much of that indie success’ gameplay has something new coming out, a stripped-down platformer called 140 that’s exploding with rainbow hues.

I usually don’t like listening to outside music while I play games, and certainly not while I play atmospheric games like Limbo. And yet if I had to choose a soundtrack for Playdead’s dark little game, I could think of worse albums than Radiohead’s Amnesiac.

I Would Kill For This Limbo Meets Calvin And Hobbes T-Shirt

I liked Limbo a lot, and I love Bill Watteron’s timeless comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. So I would do things, ungodly things, for this T-shirt from Nowhere Bad, which combines the two things in a manner so fantastic that I can’t believe no one’s done it before.

Deadmau5's New Video Expertly Channels Limbo

Did you ever wonder what would have happened if the boy from Limbo had reunited with his sister? And say, gone on a safari in Africa?
