I just saw an an intriguing game called

LIMBO

http://thrillville.mixnmojo.com/archive/off_the_rails/game_limbo.png
I thought it would be cool to recreate this game with front view being a camera choice and the lighting and shadows improvements in LBP2. Your a unknown little boy uncertain of your sisters fate. So to find out what happened, you enter limbo. Don't expect it to be all rainbows and sunshine either! Despite the black and white and slightly eary tone the game is gory.
Here are some screen shots and a video:

The boy climbing a hotel sign. Isn't that a little dangerous?

The boy jumping to a rope. The style of this game is impressive.

Oh noes! Now the boy is dodging a boulder! Missing the dodge and you'll find out why this game isn't E for Everyone.

I had this idea to, but I won't be able to devote enough time to it. Please make this happen! It would be awesome!...I just noticed something weird, I am getting as pumped for games people are going to make in LittleBigPlanet2 as much as the game itself...cool.

That is a good idea I believe someone was already working on it. He is right now at the hotel sign in the first picture I believe. So you better get started. ~.^ <<< That's a wink btw...

Yeah he's right. Although I'm not actually at the hotel sign I just thought ahead and couldn't figure out how to do it. Hope you do a really good job the closer it is to the real game the better :D


One tip. I suggest not to use front view ( I don't know how it will work for LBP2 but that's how it is for LBP1) because if you do, the fog isn't visible and you don't get that nice far away look or all the shadows. Just a suggestion :) Oh And also, when making the trees and all the stuff in the background, use the thin layers. It makes it look more flat :) (and also when looking at them from the side, when thick, you aren't able to see the corners. makes it look...idk how to explain...not right? You'll see what I mean)

Thanks forgot about fog when front view is on. Thats why people use it for pictures. Maybe we can share ideas?

I think using a Sackbot would be the obvious choice (to do the glowing eye thing automatically)... Hmm.. wonder if you could do a thing where the Sackbot looks like the player that enters, but is forced to use the glowing eyes... Hmmmm....

I loved this game. Clearly a contender for Best Arcade of the year I think. I've played one LIMBO level before the game released and it was great. Can't wait to see what you can make.

I have 3 things to say about you making this. Please don't make the puzzles too hard [Not harder than LIMBO], use a lot of sound, do it justice :P

I played the demo and the part with the wood box. We die 10 times pushing the box in the water only to find out it was suppost to be pushed in the other direction. :p I will try to make it as tried and true to the game, but not at the expense of making it extremly hard.

Amigps, you got the fog effect down pretty nice from what I saw! And @acdramon, maybe if you use a white
gradient sticker on the edges of the buildings in the BG, it would look like it fades in, maybe giving.....a bit
of a fog effect.....kinda....

Thats a great game!

I would like to see this executed in LBP2.....will be a task though, the game puts mood 1st and that is difficult to fully achieve on a family game.
