Tear Jerker / Limbo (2010)

  • The premise of the game: a little boy travels through several dangers to find his sister. When he finally reaches the end, we see the sister picking flowers (or digging) beneath a tree fort with a ladder. She notices her brother, and then the credits roll. When the credits are done, we return to the menu screen, the background of which is the very same tree fort and ladder… except they are broken down and dilapidated, and at the base of the ladder, two corpses are implied to lie on the ground, swarmed by insects.
