    Limbo of the Lost has apparently stolen just about all of their graphics from other games. I don't mean simply copied, I mean ripped them directly from the game assets.

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=310683

    Here's a list of some of the games it has stolen assets from:

    Black & White 2
    Oblivion
    Morrowind
    Diablo (Skulls and Helm)
    Theif
    Silent Hill 3
    Painkiller
    Unreal Tournament 2003/2004
    The Spawn Movie (not the game)
    Vampire: Bloodlines
    Diablo 2
    DM: Helm's Deep
    And more....

    The thread above has screenshots. This is plagiarism like I haven't seen in years.

    OMG and the graphics are prerendered. That is, not only did they use the art that oblivion pumped out in real-time as prerendered graphics (ala Resident Evil 1), but even then they still did a piss poor job of making it look good.

    How are you going to take what one game dishes out as real time and make it your prerendered. The idea of prerendered backgrounds was making something look good that your console or pc can't do with its limitations.

    I was trying to find the Silent Hill influence in the trailers, but I couldn't see anything.

    Wow.

    This boggles the mind in every way.
    Oblivion was Game of the Year for crying out loud.
    Did they think no one would notice?

    It's incredible how they took the assets from some really good games and then created that pile of garbage. It's like they stole a bunch of diamonds and then turned them into coal.

    It's time to join us Smasher. Be cool or be cast out, says RUSH.

    Not that David hasn't been fun (and you did win best Hasselhoff Sig last month BTF).

    I probably will -but right now I am going to take the kid to see Indy 4.

    I'll be totally fronting though. I don't have a PS3 or Metal Gear. :(

    Awww, and here I thought the game's NAME was Epic Fail and that it purposefully spoofed other games. Darn.

    I don't know what's worse/funnier: the blatant plagiarism or their game trailer. XD
