Video Game Plagiarism

The new game "Limbo of the Lost", a point and click adventure (hey, I'm old school -- I like those), is being called out for plagiarism.

Possibly the worst, most blatant plagiarism in video game history. They didn't just copy art assets, it looks like they used screencaps from the games. Plus they stole (allegedly) from at least a half dozen games!

This is either tragic, hilarious, or both, depending on your viewpoint.
