Playdead's unique puzzle adventure title LIMBO is now available for purchase at Mac Game Store. The game puts players in the role of a boy on a journey of exploration, uncertain of his sister's fate, or his own. LIMBO features a hauntingly beautiful art style, Trial by Death puzzle solving, and unique 2D sidescrolling puzzle solving gameplay.

Uncertain of his sister's fate, a boy enters LIMBO.

An Independent Games Festival award-winning title, LIMBO is a unique single player 2D Puzzle-Platform/Side-scrolling game. Dreamlike and created entirely in black and white, LIMBO has often been spoken of in terms of game art. Yet while hauntingly beautiful, it is also philosophically provocative. The game features a gameplay mechanic that has come to be known as "Trial by Death" in which the player must die in-game in order to discover the solutions to the puzzles set before him. In the event of this, the player spawns at the last save point and must use what he has learned if he hopes to find his sister and get closure on the events set before him.

LIMBO requires Mac OS X 10.6 and a Mac released in 2009 or later. It is available now for $9.99 (USD).
