Limbo is a side-scrolling platformer with a monochromatic color palette that relies on contrast and other visual effects for its artistic direction. The player becomes a young boy who must overcome 2D levels by discovering the solutions to the puzzle-like layouts through what the developer calls "trial and death."

Indeed, the player will likely witness the gory death of the main character multiple times per playthrough while trying to discover the solutions to progress through levels.
