Limbo

Games aren’t something we feature on Directors Notes very often, in fact I can only think of the Neil LaBute Heavy Rain/How Far Would you Go…? special we featured earlier this year.

However, Playdead’s Limbo just looked so cinematic and atmospheric I definitely thought it would be of interest to all the film-lovers and animators who visit our site.
