OK, so Limbo just came out for PS3 and it gave me an idea-what if I created it in LBP2? It's just an idea at this point, but do you think it could be possible and executed well?

To be honest this was an idea of mine and I did start toying around and I actually did have the art style of the game remade on lbp2. I'm not sure if I'll finish the level, but it is an idea.

If you have the means and experience to do it, please do. Limbo is one of the only reasons I turn on an Xbox (Not that Im a console wars freak, just have my preferences) and if you were to recreate it on LBP, you'd probably get a lot of traffic towards it, because it seems like the type of game that would appeal to LBP players.

Do you think I should remake some of the game or do completely original puzzles?

I'd make your own puzzles for originality, just as long as you keep the original limbo feel. Also if you're going through with this, I'm willing to help you if I can. I'll post a screenshot of the small thing I had done earlier later if I can.

Edit: Actually here is a screenshot now. Nothing too special, just wanted to try to make the limbo look.

I will probably be going through with the project, so I will be sure to remember you when I start making it. The hardest thing will be making it look right, after all!
I might not start it for a little while, just because I am working on a couple of other levels at the moment. I want to finally get something up on my moon!

Sry, but I am at a difference here, yes he should make original level and keep the feel, but I think you should at least start and end with the same puzzles, unless he plans on making this project a prequel or sequel. Maybe have the same puzzle ornaments and/or effect, say have it involve the cannibals traps, and use your environment (like the part where you have to knock over the tree). And I think you should most certainly include the sister, motivation, and the spider, main boss.

TBH I had a project that looked a lot like limbo in LBP1. Flopped hard with only something like 6 plays back then.. and people whining about the dark effect. Just a little forewarning of what you're likely to meet.

To be honest, I actually don't really care about the number of plays. I just like creating for personal satisfaction, and if a level I make doesn't take off that's fine with me. Although, getting a considerable amount of plays doesn't hurt XD
