Limbo of the Lost team Unlost

By Kieron Gillen on June 24th, 2008.

It Wasn't Me

While there’s been a few fakers, Majestic have been quiet since the Limbo of the Lost story blew up. However, they’ve recently issued a statement to Gamespot where they – I paraphrase – say it wasn’t them, guv. It was outsourcers. “To the best of our knowledge no one at Majestic, [European publisher] G2Games or [North American publisher Tri Synergy, Inc.] knew about this infringement and knowingly played any part in it.” they say. And there’ll be a recall. So, if true, was the outsourcer being prankish, incompetent, malicious or all three? This story’s just getting started.

Meanwhile, Videogame HyperSavant Richard Cobbett plays Limbo of the Lost so you don’t have to.

The King of Limbo-oooooh!

By Kieron Gillen on June 21st, 2008.

The King... of Limbo!
You know, with the mass covering of Limbo of the Lost’s fallout, we knew it’d take something pretty impressive to make us blog about it some more, at least this quickly. Like the whole of Majestic Games’ team turning up at our house and giving an interview. But we were wrong. Picked up from Qt3, I find someone’s uploaded the end video of Limbo of the Lost. It’s quite the thing.

Limbo Of The Lost Composer Claims All His Work

By Kieron Gillen on June 20th, 2008.

While the actual creators of the much discussed adventure game remain incommunicado – there’s been what appear to be some faked forum posts – one person connected to the game has surfaced. It’s composer Marko Hautamäki who’s released a press release claiming that there’s no element in any of the music he was contracted to supply which was taken from any other game. To prove it, he’s uploaded some of his compositions to his demo site. He does admit that he didn’t make all the music, so can’t speak with 100% conviction that there are no purloined audio assets. Full press release beneath the cut…

Limbo of the Lost: The Game. The Other Game.

By Kieron Gillen on June 13th, 2008.

Okay. Believe it or not, I’m actually doing proper journalism about this one. But until then, we’re going to ride this meme until it breaks. Which will be in about four hours. Until then, Malphigian is the winner (Er, no he’s not – Ed).
This is getting meta

To quote from the discussion thread where he unveiled it: “It’s taken 15 long years, and a good bit of foresight to predict the creation of Flash, but I can now present my wholly original work “Limbo of the Misguided”. It’s a web game more inspired by literature and, uh, vaudeville than by any other games. Hope you enjoy!” We did, Malph. You lot should too.

Compo Of The Lost

By John Walker on June 12th, 2008.

We love memes. And we’d be stupid not to encourage this one. We want as many mocked up screenshots for other levels that might have appeared in Limbo of the Lost.

By James

This is one from RPS reader James, nabbed from his site here. Send us your work to this this address, and we’ll pull out some sort of excellent prize for the one that makes us laugh the most. All the submissions will go in a post next week before the meme runs out. Usual rules here.

Limbo Of The Lost – An Astonishing Tale

By John Walker on June 12th, 2008.

Recognise it from anywhere?

A quite remarkable story has emerged about a PC adventure game from Majestic Studios called Limbo Of The Lost. It has, it is alleged, entirely lifted locations and art from at least five other games, apparently proven in a number of screenshots posted by GamePlasma yesterday. Oblivion seems the main target, along with Thief 3 and others. Because, hey, who bought those games? But this is a larger story of peculiarity.
