Limbo of the Lost stole from Oblivion, Morrowind, UT2K4, Diablo, Silent Hill, more?

Oh fuck. I've just found proof that some of the Amiga stuff was ripped off too :lol :lol :lol
I thought I recognised something... give me 15 and I'll sort out a gif...

Edit: Here we go... anyone remember Guy Spy on the Amiga?
Check out that background....

Wow... even back then the guy was copying backgrounds. :)
 
While the developers of the Limbo of the Lost are dumbshits for thinking they'd get away with this, some of these comparisons are a little farfetched. The fun is over, everyone's just pulling at straws now.

It's like an online version of Where's Waldo, but with copyrighted images instead of a guy in a striped shirt.

Here comes WETA!
I've been reading through this thread and when I got to that part I looked at it and was sort of giving it the benefit of the doubt, thinking that a hooded ghost isn't necessarily a Nazgul.


And then I scrolled down :lol

Serious Sam is a wicked gahbidge series for chowdaheads.

Could you make another gif using this screenshot?



It shows a little more background than the other one.

Despite there being a few differences between the shots, there are way more similarities than to be just a coincidence.

Have to agree, they just altered the background a little, but it's the same...

This is just getting better and better...

That is completely and utterly unfair. You don't know what the fuck most game developers look like, clearly, or people in their middle 40s from Kent for that matter.
But they stole everything else, why not steal Itagaki's look? It's plausible!

Because THREE leather jackets and fancy glasses are too expensive - they could have bought one with excellent game sales but GAF/the i-don't-know-how-it's-called-games-magazine-which-brought-up-this-hysteria ruined it all. Shame on you!

Now they have to stick to used clothes. They are not going to look cool on conventions like Game Developers Conference. By the way, they MUST be given a panel next year, I would like to hear what is the best tactic to steal assets from AAA games. And they have to announce a sequel too - Resistance 2 and all of that coming, new raw materiel inbound!
 
dose said:
No problem. It's now even clearer that it is a complete ripoff.


@neight, how can you NOT see the lines are in exactly the same places??
Stick your mouse cursor where any of the blocks join and you'll see they match up perfectly. At least he tried to mask it here.

This... just.... doesn't... want... to... end... O_O


Its like watching the Cast from LOST try to Limbo on the Island again.

Haha, well, I saw the Limbo screen and it just clicked that I'd seen the background before somewhere. Then I remembered the Amiga Guy Spy demo I'd played years ago. It was as frustrating as hell but I played it a hell of a lot.
Little did I know it would come in handy in the future :D
 
They could've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those pesky GAF detectives! Seriously, they should've just google'd bgs, instead of taking from popular recognizable titles. That shit might fly in the days of Amiga, but certainly not in the Internet Age.

Jezuz... remembering a background from an obscure Amiga demo from over a decade ago? I bow to your superior brain capacity.

This is the most epic thread I have ever read. Just... incredible. WOW. I doubt we'll ever hear anything, but I'd love a response from these jokers.

I imagine their response would be wide eyes and jazz hands, like people do in the movies before being hit by a train.
 
Sorry for the bump, but a friend of mine got his copy just this morning



The quotes in the cover are so incredibly shameless :lol he says he's "afraid" of opening it just yet. :lol

if you zoom in you can sort of make out:
Justadventure.com
T-Something.co.uk???
Gameboomers.com
I squinted and made out that the T one was twitchy.co.uk ... rather a misnomer, given that the site is all about adventure games. Heh.

You didn't have to, my GAF account got aproved recently. :D

This is the stuff of legends, seriously. The cutscenes remind me of the Zelda CD-i games, but with horrible 3D models, which is even worse.

Well, they are adventure gamers, let's be honest here those people are stuck back in 1995 and probably sneer at any game deviating from the adventure formula. So you see it's completely understandable that they missed it.

I'm thinking that there are some people who stick only to the adventure game genre. I mean, the woman who reviewed the game for JustAdventure.com said in a forum thread that she'd considered picking up Oblivion but never did.

Hey now, don't go lumping everybody who likes adventure games into that group. I know it's 1998! ;)

Ok, welcome here btw. :D

It has the same horrible voiceover than Zelda CD-i?. If yes, i might get a copy myself like you did, just for the lulz.
