Limbo of the Lost Plagiarism

So reports have been flooding the internet today about how some settings in Limbo of the Lost are obviously stolen from other games and even movies. The most obvious comparison I've seen is between a screenshot of Limbo of the Lost and Oblivion. Now Trisynergy, the distributor, is distancing itself from Majestic Studios, the developer, and stopping all sales of the game.

Supposedly, some of the other games that may have been stolen from are "Diablo 2, Painkiller, Unreal Tournament 2003, Unreal Tournament 2004, Thief: Deadly Shadows, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, Silent Hill 3 and scenes from the 1997 film Spawn."

Hey, at least they stole from some good games. I had never heard of Limbo of the Lost before today. I found this trailer for it on YouTube.

Limbo of the Lost is/was for PC only.
