Cinematic Spaces: Research - LIMBO

The Spider From LIMBO

LIMBO is a puzzle-platform 2D sidescroller video game incorporating environmental objects. The player guides an unnamed boy through dangerous environments and traps as he searches for his sister. The game is entirely black and white which adds to the eerie atmosphere and includes a huge spider which is seen throughout the game.

I have not played LIMBO myself, but I have seen the game on various television adverts and at game conferences. I really like the silhouette of the spider and its hairy, long legs. I hope to really make my sea spider's legs stand out and set the scene.
