Limbo of the Lost is a 2D point-and-click adventure game. It consists of an animated 2D character moving over a 2D background.

Most, if not all of these backgrounds appear to have been taken from other commercial games. It is a misapprehension by some that LotL contains realtime 3D art and that the plagiarism in question could be explained in the same way that the Stalker plagiarism scandal was resolved. This is not the case. All of the background in LotL are static images. Thus, all that the artist needed to do to create them from another game's assets was to play the game and take a screenshot, then manipulate that screenshot in Photoshop as necessary.

Some backgrounds contain assets from more than one game. The screenshots below are listed by the game from which the original art appears to have been taken. If a screenshot contains art from more than one source, it is noted.

Diablo IIEdit

Many backgrounds in LotL contain small images that have been pasted on in an image editing program to make the screenshots look more macabre. One such image is the Wall of the Eyeless -- a shield item from Diablo II.

Another is the Full Helm used for uniques in Diablo II which can be seen in the screenshot on the right of the character, although somewhat vertically compressed and not to miss the elder scrolls armor and weapons on the back wall

Yet another is the Chain/Mesh/Boneweave Boots from Diablo II which can be seen in the screenshot on the right, darkened. Also, the cloak in the centre uses the model for 'Cloak of Protection +2' from Baldur's Gate series.

The Elder Scrolls III: MorrowindEdit

This background contains elements from the Orcish Armor set in Morrowind, plus a recoloured glass staff, a recolored daedric shortsword and a Nordic battle axe.

The Elder Scrolls IV: OblivionEdit

Note in the first set of images that the portrait on the wall in the background is exactly the same since this is nothing more than a screenshot of castle Skingrad in Oblivion. However, since the programmer of Lotl wanted to allow the torches to animate, he clone-stamped out the fire from Oblivion and superimposed the much-overused fire gif -- the scourge of 90s websites.

These images are suspected to originate from UT2k4. Map name unknown.

These images are suspected to originate from UT2k4. They use assets from ONS-Urban but in a configuration not visible in the map.

This one is said to be from from Unreal II, though there was discussion on the Bethsoft forums that the massive fleshy thing in the centre was an oversized Heart of Lorkhan, from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Painkiller MultiplayerEdit

The following images are all taken from the bonus DVD or the game itself and are awaiting research into their origins. For anyone looking for additional images, this thread at has zillions.

Edit: Some of these feel like Knights of the Temple, further investigation needed.
