Limbo
INDIE AWARD

Our experts have spent time searching for great games similar to Limbo and have found the following:

Limbo is a narrative traversal game where you control a small boy as he runs, jumps and climbs through a dark, silhouetted forest that clanks and hums with foreboding. As the age rating suggests, he is killed in all manner of gruesome ways. But this is not without reason. Rather than violent indulgence, the repeated downfall of the child builds a protective relationship between the player and their charge. He needs protection, but he also needs meaning. His willing march into the unknown at your command shows great courage and the need to reach his sister.

Unfortunately, Limbo is not available on Mac or PC. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme, and at a lower age rating:
