  • Thank you for making these lists; they are very helpful for discovering new games that have a similar style to one we particularly like. I knew some of these, but not all of them and I’m glad for the new titles I can now add to my wish list.
    If I may suggest just a few more that I find somewhat reminiscent of Limbo, there’s also :

    – Albert and Otto
    – Toby: The Secret Mine
    – Year Walk
    – Inside
    – Selma and the Wisp
