This is the game trailer for LIMBO, a game which recently surfaced and has a brilliant atmosphere and visual feel. It’s dark and creepy and again has a bold silhouette style but the lack of any other colour (aside from various shades of grey in my experience thus far) really adds to the experience. The music also is something that I found to be a mixture of enchanting, haunting/chilling.
This game is a strong influence for my second film idea, based in dream scape. Even the animation in the game is something of an influence, I can’t quite describe it which is why I posted a video link. The animation is a bit snappy, probably due to the fact that it is a 2D game so most moving parts need to react to keystrokes, at the same time I feel that this stands out -because- it is black and white. Perhaps it is also because of my uncertainty as to how to describe the animation within the game that is also part of the reason why I have become so focused upon that particular aspect.
