* NoPlotNoProblem: The game really has no story to speak of. You're just doing a bunch of things throughout the game with no rhyme or reason.
* NoOSHACompliance: Justified. This is limbo after all.

Playdead later released a SpiritualSuccessor called ''{{Videogame/INSIDE}}'' in June of 2016. It's much the same of Limbo- a young boy explores a dangerous and hostile world, but the setting this time is an incomprehensibly large facility of some kind, and it uses a more realistic art style rather than the silhouette style of ''Limbo''.

* LightEmUp: The parasitic brain slugs [[WeakenedByTheLight hate direct light]]. They can be heard screaming as they force their victim to move away.

* AssholeVictim: A tribe of evil children in the beginning will try to kill you repeatedly, and run up to their treehouses when they fail. Unfortunately, while they're safe from ''you'', the giant spider has no such limitations.

* NoSidePathsNoExplorationNoFreedom: The game and puzzles are much more rigid than Braid. But secrets are still out there.

** In one of the puzzles, there are two compressors with buttons. One compressor crushes you if you ''do'' press the button, and the other crushes you if you ''don't''. Good luck remembering that, and especially when you're being chased by the hostiles.
* VideogameCaringPotential: The protagonist is a child. A cute kid who is getting slaughtered by everything. Give it a few deaths and you'll be dodging the puzzles for his sake, not your own.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: After beating the game the player has the option of replaying any of the chapters. Kind gamers can enjoy their favorite puzzles over and over while helping the boy reach his goal. Sadistic players can see just how many different ways its possible to kill the poor kid...
