Limbo, a 2D sidescroller by Playdead studios, is a combination of meticulously designed platform-based puzzles, interlaced with a grim and grisly setting that looks like a melancholic visual representation of the Otherworld; it is quite a bleak game.

About 30ish minutes into this film, I was scratching my head and wondered if I was watching the correct movie. The synopsis of Audition sounded like a suspenseful horror flick, but you wouldn’t have guessed it was that kind of experience early on; It came off as more of a romantic-comedy.
