Hi
My name is Laurence, I am the chief puzzle designer, lead voice overs and musical director for the now infamous Limbo of the Lost. As you may know I have always kept a low profile concerning the politics of GameBoomers and other sites, prefering to concentrate on the creative side. I have kindly been given permission from GameBoomers to state my side of the case for this I am grateful.
First let me point out that I as was Tim extremely unhappy with the way that Steve behaved. I would like to extend our sincere apologies for the ensuing results. Steves views in no way reflect my own. Unfortunately Steves drive and passion can sometimes get the better of him.
I myself understand that part of the fun in playing adventure games is to share titbits of information. This is what brings communities together and keeps the industry going.
Limbo took a long time to develope and I can assure it was worth it. It would be a shame to deprive people the pleasure to play just because of a hot headed developer,
Once again I can only apologise on behalf of Majestic Studios and suffice to say someone is in the dog house hahahah

A very special apology to Inferno

P.S This is not a grovelling post, just a heart felt apology.

As a footnote may I also stress that Majestic Studios are still a very strong team who are not only close friends but also work very well together. We will continue to develope new and exciting projects and hope that we can eventually put all of this behind us. We are all entitled at least one mistake, here's one that a certain person won't forget in a hurry. hahaha

I thank you all for your time

Laurence Francis.
Chief Puzzle designer, lead character vocals and musical director

welcomeTo Boomers Laurie..

I am glad you were given the chance to explain the situation..

Out of respect for Game Boomers & the Staff I was prepared to boycott Limbo of the Lost.. As well I'm sure other members would have did the same.

luck With the game..

welcome to the party, Laurence:

I offer you and Tim a heartfelt virtual hug of friendship. And I am glad that both of you realize how adventure gamers game here at GB. Gaming for us is not and will never be a solitary experience. We take joy and pride in our community spirit because we are one place that holds our "neighborhood" as a virtual family where all are welcome and all are helped when any question is asked without fear, embarrassment or lack of knowledge. Here at Gameboomers we believe in "paying it forward".

My wish is simple: for all to get on with our gaming, however we choose to play.

As for the past few days occurance, the feelings and emotions will die as what was written becomes buried with time. There is good that has come from it as we all are that much wiser now. All of us. I bear neither of you any ill will and wish much success for your future.

To all else who read this, for my part I would ask that no one boycott or refuse to play it soley on the basis of what happen to me. Those of you who know me well, also know that I do not believe in grudges nor annimosity toward another. It holds no purpose, expends far too much energy and only leads to outrecuidance. This is a game that should be played and replayed by all who love the spirit of adventure. I for one would not deny any of my gaming friends at GB or anywhere else this marvelous experience.

I had stated before all of this "whoha" began and I state it now that Limbo of the Lost was singularly one of the most intoxicating and deliciously devious adventures I have played to date. I will never speak ill of it as I cannot speak ill of what I have fallen in love with. Captain Briggs will forever remain fondly in my heart. You and Tim did that, Laurence. In more ways then you will ever know. I shall always remain a fan and admirer.

Blessed Be:
