* CounterpartComparison: This game, to some, reminds them of '' VideoGame/YumeNikki '', as both games don't have much a backstory and has numerous fan theories to explain some of the things seen in the games, however, unlike '' Yume Nikki'', ''Limbo'' has a storyline, [[GainaxEnding Gainax]] DownerEnding aside. Likewise, because you can die so many times (or, more often than not, will probably do), the game might remind some of ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''.

**According to some theories, the boy (in which you play as) is actually the villain and his quest to find his sister isn't as innocent as it seems, as, according to one variant, [[spoiler: he kills his sister at the end]]. What supports that interpretation is that in the end, [[spoiler: the girl stands up startled, in some acknowledgement but doesn't turn around]].

**Any few times you make a mistake, with the sounds of the kid being impaled or getting blown all over the place.



*{{Moe}}: The boy and his sister.



* PlayerPunch: Right from the horrid deaths of the boy, to finding hundreds of corpses of other kids, having fallen to traps and the enviroment. It really makes you feel alone.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* SweetDreamsFuel: Most of the soundtrack (when it isn't ominous) is comprised of angelic choirs, lush electronic drones, and downright ''heavenly'' ambient swells. "Machine Gun Tranquility" (despite its title) perfectly sets the mood.

* DisappointingLastLevel: The second half of the game definitely doesn't disappoint in terms of peril or challenge, but the heavily industrial flavor and lack of other entities (living and dead) means it isn't nearly as bleak or disturbing as the the earlier chapters, which can be accurately described as looking like a [[Literature/ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark Stephen Gammell drawing]] come to life.
