Ever since its console release last summer, I've been eagerly awaiting the day Limbo would arrive on the PC. That day has finally come. As Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports, the artsy indie platformer is now available on Steam for $9.99. If you're not ready to part with a sawbuck quite yet, the game's Steam page also links to a free demo.
And if you're not ready for that level of commitment, the trailer below ought to give you a good idea of what Limbo's all about. For the record, the game has proved quite popular, earning a 90% rating on Metacritic with an average user score of 8.5.
It's just too bad this title took a whole year to make its way from the Xbox 360 to the PC. Sure, platformers may be best enjoyed with a controller instead of a keyboard, but the PC presents some unique advantages to indie developers trying to get into the big leagues—namely community support and flexible distribution methods. The success of Minecraft is but one example.
