Indie classic LIMBO is getting a Commodore 64 remake!

2010’s LIMBO is one of my favorite independent video games. I originally played it on the Xbox 360, which was the platform that initiated me to  modern indie gaming, back at the scene’s boom 10 years ago – other faves of mine including Super Meat Boy, Braid, etc.

I’ve only finished it once. I’ve somehow never managed to do a second run, even though I have acquired in the meantime, thanks to my PlayStation Plus subscription, newer versions for PS4 and my favorite hardware platform for indie games, PS Vita!

Now it seems that sooner or later, I will have no more excuses to re-plunge into its bleak, touching black & white world, as a Commodore 64 remake (or should we say demake?) is in the works.

 

Søren Trautner Madsen, one of Limbo’s programmers, is coding it in its free time, which is why it may take a while until release. As a side note, we’ve seen successful crowd funding campaigns for projects less interesting than this!

Make sure to read the Youtube video notes for all the background details.
