* BonusStage: The PSN and PC versions have one if you collect all the insect eggs. [[spoiler:Its entrance is past where the "Alone in the Dark" egg is found, and when you beat it you come out at the elevator underneath which you find the "Under Ground" egg.]] It's extremely long, dark, and difficult, and there are several places where you'll have to navigate by sound alone.

Do not confuse with ''VideoGame/LimboOfTheLost'', although that's pretty terrifying in its own special way. For the ''opposite'' of ''Limbo'', there is ''VideoGame/{{Lucidity}}''.

* {{Gorn}}: Touch a bear trap? You get snapped in half. Get hit with a [[ChainsawGood buzzsaw]]? You get chopped to pieces. Get hit lightly? You get sawed in half with visible entrails. Get squashed? Sticky chunks stretch apart afterward. You can turn on a gore filter in the options that makes the screen cut to black the moment you die, but it doesn't remove the ''sounds''.

The game's story is simple. You control a [[NoNameGiven nameless]] young boy in [[EldritchLocation Limbo]], searching for his sister. There is no dialog or text of any kind to guide you. Just the boy and an incredibly [[SceneryGorn dark]], [[EverythingTryingToKillYou oppressive]], [[CrapsackWorld crapsack]] environment. There are many deadly puzzles, challenges and traps that can get you killed, in many shockingly violent ways. A Gore Filter can make the deaths less grisly, but no less terrifying. When combined with the protagonist's limited moveset -- he's entirely unarmed and can only jump, push/pull objects (like boxes and levers), climb ledges, and swing on ropes -- ''Limbo'''s sense of helplessness and trepidation is intense. Something of a huge contrast and surprise between regional ratings, the [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications ESRB]] somehow let the game pass with only a T for Teen rating, while [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications PEGI]] gave it an 18, the strictest rating they have. If you see the [[TheManyDeathsOfYou more graphic deaths]] (though, to be fair, they're all [[DeliberatelyMonochrome completely silhouetted]]), you'll understand why some think the ESRB would have, or even ''should'' have given it an M for mature rating instead.

*ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth: This is subtle but, initially, you see a small white butterfly that [[spoiler: goes towards your sister early in the game]] while the brain slug leads you away.



* FeaturelessProtagonist: He's a silhouette with eyes, and that's it.

* FeaturelessProtagonist: He's a silhouette with eyes, and that's it.about it, however, if you look closely at the outline, you can tell he's wearing a sweater, shorts, and a pair of sneakers.

* FollowTheLeader: The game is very similar in many ways to ''VideoGame/{{Lucidity}}'', except the latter is LighterAndFluffier, and ''colorful''. ''Deadlight'' takes the same aesthetic and play mechanics and puts it [[RecycledInSpace in the middle of a]] ZombieApocalypse.

* 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.
