What the hell is Limbo of the Lost?
Limbo of the Lost is a goddamn trainwreck. Let's just get that out of the way. But, to answer the question it is a point-and-click adventure game developed by Majestic Studios for Windows PC. Production of the game began in 1993 for the Amiga ST and finally concluded in what we are about to witness in July of 2007. Yes, Duke Nukem Forever has shit on this game. It was published in 2007 to...unfortunate results not long after... But that is all a story for another day...

So what is it about?
Limbo of the Lost chronicles the adventures of Benjamin Briggs, the lost captain of the legendary ghost ship the Mary Celeste in Limbo. Some say he got lost there... There is still much speculation.

Do I need to elaborate more that we're getting into some batshit territory?

What's this about plagiarism?
Limbo of the Lost's claim to fame is that despite its supposed 14 year development cycle; the game borrowed a "few" things. This resulted in it being pulled from shelves less than a year later. And by "a few things" I mean the developers wholesale stole assets from a colorful and diverse variety of games in order to flesh out its abysmal experience. Diablo 2, Oblivion, Thief 3, Unreal Tournament 2004, Painkiller...the list goes on and on... And, of course, we'll be chronicling its many, many blatant theft "homage" as we make our way through this trainwreck.

Hey, I saw that in...
I am going to refrain, unless blatantly obvious, from pointing out too many of the ripped off elements from updates, as that would get tedious. So it is up to you at home! That's right, get off your ass and get this noggins working to figure out where the hell you saw XXXX from in the past and feel free to post it. It's like Where's Waldo, only with a civil lawsuit when you find him.

Hahaha they/you mispelled...
This game has pretty abysmal spell checking and after looking at shit for a hour, even some of it seems acceptable to me. So feel free to point it out. And don't be afraid to point out any typos I make. At least I can go back and correct them without getting sued for copyright infringement. Yes, I know misspelled is misspelled above. It's a joke, you anal dipshit.
