Sincerest form of Flattery?

Filed under Funny, Video Games, WTF

This is so outrageously wrong that it seems like a joke...but I think it may be real.

A new game called "Limbo of the Lost" blatantly uses content from several other games.

Here is an article comparing Limbo of the Lost to Oblivion.

Here is a thread of where people uncover more lifted content from other games and movies.

When tourist guy first hit the Internet, parodies soon followed.

And let the parodies of "Limbo of the Lost" begin!

My favorite is Zork...

Jeepers...there is a long list. I can't believe they even stole from other movies. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbo_of_the_Lost#Controversy

On June 11, 2008 GamePlasma, a gaming news site, posted an article showing certain places in Limbo of the Lost were identical to the game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. After the revelation, others looking into the game discovered environments and assets that appear to be taken from other games including:

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Unreal Tournament 2004
Unreal Tournament 2003
Unreal Tournament
Diablo II
Thief: The Dark Project
Thief: Deadly Shadows
a CryENGINE2 Tech Demo
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Sea Dogs
Painkiller
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth
Hexen
Silent Hill 4
World of Warcraft

Other scenes appear to be taken from live action films: one from the 1997 film Spawn, an image from Beetlejuice ,another from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and several more from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Additionally, a Lord of the Rings Nazg├╗l bust by Weta Workshop appears to have been used in another background image.
