Top 10 Games Like Limbo

Little Nightmares 2

Following up on Tarsier Studios' 2017 release (which is also worth a look), Little Nightmare 2 oozes an atmosphere similar to Limbo with its unique spin on the genre.

The Swapper

Another environment-first platformer that bordered on the existential and surreal, The Swapper came a few years after Limbo and excelled in the merits of its own environment.

Never Alone

Another indie sidescroller that's worth your time, Never Alone is a powerful tale based on a traditional tale of the Inupiat group of Alaska Natives.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Joseph Fares is now mostly known as the incendiary partner after his Game Awards explosion.

Planet Alpha

A lively jaunt to an alien world, Planet Alpha is a left-field sucker-punch for Limbo's monochrome visuals.


Limbo is a game about grief with a more focused and complete story than other games like Gris that has similarly little text and is more about what your own personal experiences are being presented to you. Well, let me reflect on this.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty!

A stone-cold classic for a new generation, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! 1997's Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is a remaster of Lorne Lanning's deeply influential PS1 platformer.

Another World

Another golden old man, Another World was one of the first cinematic adventure games when it dropped on the humble Amiga in 1991.


Dark, brooding, and oppressive, Inside Playdead had a follow up to the iconic Limbo, and boy did it.
