Limbo
Limbo is one of the more famous indie games to have been released in recent years. It made quite a name for itself on Xbox 360, due to its art style and solid gameplay.

Limbo is a 2d puzzle platformer (like most other indie 2d platformers) , where you play as a young boy who is trying to get through a dangerous world, filled with traps and things that wants to kill you. The story is told not through text or dialogue, but through the events that transpires as you make your way through the world.

The puzzles are for the most part quite clever, and they require more in the way of thought than manual dexterity (though there are some puzzles that require a bit of manual dexterity, in particular near the end of the game).

The art style is, as you would expect from a game known for being artistic, quite nice. Everything is in black & white (more black than white, really), and the creatures of the world are all well animated. I could imagine that some people will have issues with some of the rather gruesome deaths that can take place in this game. Even more so due to the fact that you play as a young boy. But if you are one of those who don't mind that, then I would highly recommend this game.
