If wonderfully atmospheric XBLA platformer Limbo starred Sackboy, it would look something like this.
Limbo is one of the hottest Xbox 360 games this summer, because it’s really, really good. LittleBigPlanet has been one of the most beloved PS3 exclusives for almost two years now. So this begs the question: What happens if you put a great Xbox 360 exclusive and a great PS3 exclusive together?
Apparently, you get “Limbo, Son of the Forest,” a LittleBigPlanet map made by PS3 artiste Bra2008. Even without the name, this LBP level makes its inspiration more than obvious – from the bear traps on the ground to the monochrome color palette overlaid on the whole thing.
Really, it’s impressive how accurately the creator nailed the Limbo aesthetic. It must be hard work to turn the adorable floppy-tongued Sackboy into something that fits into the haunting, minimalist and bleak world of Limbo, but they took one hell of a stab at it. I didn’t even know you could make Sackboy look like that. Nicely done!
