Well, Limbo Certainly Sold A Ton Of Copies

Creepy indie platformer Limbo is one of the surprise hits of 2010, not just with critics, but with the game-buying public, too.

Developers Playdead have told Gamasutra that the game has sold over 300,000 copies since it was released last month. For a game about a creepy little kid dying a million times in a world of black and white, those are good numbers. Actually, no. Those are great numbers.

I just hope most people got the game. For five minutes, I was frustrated and horrified. For the remainder, it was one of the smartest, and more importantly funniest games I've played all year.
