We were talking today about puzzle games, specifically Limbo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbo_(video_game)). These are games where there are generally no rules other than how to play, and you as a character are basically on your own when it comes to getting to the next level. This reminds me of the game(s) that I am playing for my book review paper, namely the games in the Oddworld series. For anyone who has never heard of these games, the first in the series was Abe's Oddysee (1997) which followed Abe, a humble Mudokon who worked at a Rupture Farms, the biggest slaughterhouse on Oddworld. gameplay teaser, let me know your thoughts!
