Profesor Layton in Limbo by Sieberwolf Profesor Layton in Limbo by Sieberwolf
...This is the reason why I shouldn't have access to the internet...

Anyways, got the new issue of Game Informer a few days ago and imagine my surprise when i saw that Limbo was out! The last time I heard ANYTHING about that game was in a web blog about two years back! How the hell did it slip past me?!

But I digress...

There was also a little blurb in the previews page about the third Prof Layton game to which I am eagerly awaiting being the puzzle freak that I am. IT'S NOT FAIR THAT JAPAN HAS HAD IT SINCE 2008!! STEP UP YOUR GAME USA!!
SO while I was watching the playthrough for Limbo (can't actually PLAY it b/c dear brother broke my 360, Thanks Bro! *throws brick*) a little idea came into my mind and that little idea became what you see here after about a day and a half's work.

I tried so very hard to capture the same look and feel of the game in this, and even though it didn't come out exactly as planned I am still pleased with the results :3
The Prof, Luke, and the spider were all drawn with traditional methods before being scanned and outlined in Ps whereas everything else was digitally painted.

Oh, and feel free to make up your own story as to why these two somehow wandered into this bizarre world. Personally i blame the little "Navi" fairy floating arund there. But that's just me :D

QUICK LUKE! USE THAT ANIMAL CHARM AND TAME THAT BEASTIE!! *is shot*

*and just so you know, for those of you who don't have a clue as to what either of these games are they are both puzzle based, hence the crossover :3*

Oh and guess what I found whilst looking up ref for Luke!!

SQUEE!! :love: I want that Layton pillow NOW!!

Layton has enough badass to kill the spider and solve all the puzzles in about 3 minutes.

When you say "this game"...... are you forgetting to attach a subject to your definite article, or did he beat a game that was actually a Limbo-Professor-Layton crossover? If the former, which did he beat? If the latter, where can I acquire it?

Ah, I was actually referring to the game "Limbo," which is a game that is in this same style!  Here's a link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbo_(v… to the wikipedia article about the game if you're interested - it's creepy as all hell. ;)  I played it, and I loved it.

Luke: Professa? Why does that large spider have dead children skewered onto its legs?
Layton: Because, my boy, that spider is really a large robot controlled by Don Paulo!

Imagine if Prof. Layton DID go to the Limbo world.:aww: Maybe it'd happen whilst he's on a case to... I dunno... maybe find the boy who stars in this game at the behest of his mother.

That would be awesome! And it wouldn't even have to be hyper detailed either, just something simple and suspenseful would do it for me.

P.S:
OMFG I know, I want that pillow NOW!!!

(Just to let you know, Limbo is amazing. Should you ever get the chance to fix your XBox, I definitely recommend it.)

This piece of work is...utterly amazing. *continues to gaze in all its glory*

Thank you! From what i've seen on IGN the graphics are amazing in regards to it's simplicity. I'll probably just have to shell out for a new XBOX though(that new slim system is looking mighty nice!)
