LAD – Limbo inspired puzzle platformer coming to iOS, Mac & Android

May 28, 2012

LAD, a “dark, eerie, atmospheric thinking game” is currently a work in progress over at Black Chair Games.

Anyone who has played Limbo (PC, Mac, PS3, XBox360) will immediately spot the inspiration for this game. As Black Chair Games explain, “LAD is a dark, eerie, atmospheric thinking game inspired by ‘Limbo’ in the mould of a puzzle platformer, planned soon for release on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Android. It’ll have you asking questions throughout its cryptic story.

Creating such an artistically close copy, LAD will be setting itself up for some instant and possibly hard comparisons with Limbo. I’m hoping Black Chair Games can pull this off and create a great Limbo style game for my iPad!

The video (below) is beta footage from some of the earlier levels.

Update – The game is now available. It is reviewed here on Arcadelife.
