Limbo

10 Wonderful Video Games with a Minimalist Art Style

A classic, Limbo is one of the crowning examples of minimalist video games. It shows that you don’t need fancy colors and bright scenery to make a game stand out and really be memorable.

The game is characterized by its black and white aesthetic that sets an eerie and ominous tone throughout every single level.

It constantly reminds you that you’re not somewhere normal nor are you on just any old journey through a forest. You’re trying to find your sister somewhere in the dark and murky corners of this mysterious and troublesome place.

There’s something unsettling following you everywhere you go and you’re constantly reminded that you’re in this in-between place or, in other words, Limbo.

Limbo’s minimalist art style really contributes to its overall theme, gameplay experience, and immersion and it is a perfect example of a video game’s atmosphere done right.

There’s a reason it’s on many a list and it’s simply because it’s a masterpiece in more ways than one.
