The latest free game hitting the Epic Game Store is Limbo, the indie platformer best known for its eerie ambiance and an ending as polarizing as The Sopranos.
The black-and-white 2D side-scroller utilizes classic platformer mechanics, but the visuals and sounds are haunting, and deaths (which come often) are gruesome. Limbo follows a young boy searching for his sister in a mysterious forest full of traps and monsters, including the creepiest spider I’ve ever seen in a video game.
Developer Playdead released Limbo in 2010 for Xbox Live Arcade and has since been ported it to multiple systems, including PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, iOS, and PlayStation Vita (RIP).
This isn’t the first time a company has used Limbo as an incentive to try its platform; Microsoft offered a free download of the game to early Xbox One adopters.
