A new Steam sale offers an absolute bargain, with two of the best horror games of all time, Limbo and Inside, both from Playdead, combined for less than the price of a Starbucks morning. If you like good scares, distinctive visuals, and neat, nerve-wracking storytelling, this is for you.

The Inside and Limbo Bundle is available now for $2.98 USD (£2.32 GBP). Alternatively, you can buy Inside for just $1.99 USD (£1.69GB) or Limbo for just 99¢ (89p in the UK). Typically, the two games together would set you back around $26.99 USD (or £25.98 GBP), making this sale 91% better.

Personally, I think Limbo is the better of the two here. Released in 2010, it spearheaded the popularity of smaller indie games and paved the way for the success of later indie hits like Undertale, Hotline Miami and Gone Home.

Unaware of its place in video game history, it’s also a fantasy platformer in its own right: dark, spooky, imaginative and totally committed to its vision of a cruel and brutal fairy tale world, Limbo is the kind of game you can show people who don’t play video games, and they’ll instantly get hooked.

And if you’ve never played Inside and want a great story and horror experience you can enjoy at the same time, this is the perfect opportunity. We’re not going to spoil anything, but it has one of the most impactful endings in recent video game history. Get Limbo and Inside together on Steam now.
