Limbo (the Game) is Free Today and Tomorrow.

Saw this on Kotaku.

Limbo is a game about a boy trying to find his sister. I'm not going to say anything else, because I don't want to spoil it for anybody who hasn't played it. The creepy story is part of the charm.

It's also one of my favorite indie sidescrollers to date, and it is currently free on Steam (for PC) and XBone. The art style is creepy as heck and the puzzle gameplay is really fun. I'd heartily recommend this game to anyone (bonus if spiders freak you out). If you missed it the first time around, snag it now.

EDIT: Added trailer.

This is a really good game (we talked about it before, the game where your arachnophobia may be cured or multiplied ;)) and I recommend everybody to try it out!

The art style is impressive. It reminds me another similar game called "badland"
The game is pretty simple but the graphics is quite enjoyable
