Game Day, 7 of 10: Limbo, 2010
“Playdead’s ghostly take on the platform genre pushed at the edges of what games could feel like. This chiaroscuro nightmare follows a little boy’s quest to find a lost love one and travel to end of reality. In LIMBO, nature has been contorted and disrupted, rather than redeemed.” – Jamin Warren, editor of Kill Screen
For Game Day, EXPO Cinema and the videogame arts and culture publication Kill Screen co-present a series of ten afternoons devoted to ten seminal video games from each year between 2004 and 2013, whose mechanics, design, and aesthetics variously reflect themes of EXPO.
