We’ve been making Bytejacker for two years now, which is surprising for a couple of dudes that can’t even keep a goldfish alive. In honor of this auspicious occasion, we’re answering viewer questions, taking a look behind the scenes, and checking out your birthday wishes.
We’ve also got a review of the first game of this year’s Summer of Arcade, LIMBO.
RADAR: LIMBO REVIEW
XBLA, Platformer, Playdead, $15.00
We’re two years into this show, guys. And if you’ve been watching for a while, you know how my tastes skew. I like my games dark, strange, cartoony, and atmospheric. Well, take a look at LIMBO, the first of this year’s Summer of Arcade titles on XBLA. Looks like I’ve got a winner here. But what are the rest of you going to think?
