Welcome to RPS’ first (and probably only) edition of Box News, an attempt at providing fair and balanced coverage of that most marginalized of objects in this digital age – the box – on the first day to conveniently feature more than one box-based news item in 437 years. On today’s show, we’ll be bringing you up-to-the-minute analysis of the developing Portal Lego set situation and having Limbo’s lavish new Special Edition box set live in the studio.

WIN: Limbo

By Jim Rossignol on August 4th, 2011.

Big spider or small boy?

COMPETITION CLOSED, PRIZES SENT.

John thought Limbo was great, even if the PC-porting was a bit shonky. So perhaps you might be interested in winning a copy? I thought so. We’ve got twenty Steam codes to give away. Email us here with the answer to this question: “If you were stuck in limbo – the metaphysical/theological state, rather than the platform game – which PC gaming character would you want to be stuck there with?”

The most metaphysical answers, as judged by us, will win Steam codes. Usual rules apply. Closing date is midday, 10th August.

Or whatever o’clock it is near you plans). The wildly-acclaimed XBLA tale of horror, puzzles, platforming and silhouettes is out right now on PC at last, via Steam. It’ll cost you £6.99 or $9.99, and if you’re unsure we’ll hopefully be telling you what we think very soon.

Trailer below, in case you’re unfamiliar with its sombre, haunting, unsettling work, plus you can read our recent interview with the devs here.

I caught up with Dino Patti, CEO & Co-founder of Playdead, to ask him some questions about it. He was kind enough answer them all, so I thought I’d share his responses with you: Read the rest of this entry »

Limbo Confirmed For August 2nd

By Jim Rossignol on July 8th, 2011.


The Limbo folks have sent word that the spooky silhouetted platformer (and one of the prettiest side-scrollers on the playboxes) will be turning up on Steam on August 2nd. That’s about it really, but we’ll probably WIT it or something before it hits.

Hey look, here comes a video! It’s actually one of my favourite trailers ever. Grim.
