LIMBO. It's a 2D black and white puzzle platformer (£9.99 on PSN last time that I checked). You are a boy who wakes up in the woods. You are not given an objective any time during the game nor told who you are. But if you decide to press on (as you will otherwise you wouldn't have bought the game- although there is a free demo) then you will face various obstacles and booby traps that are capable of killing you in gruesome detail. Theoretically, you could finish the game the first time without dying but, in practice, that is highly unlikely without a walkthrough because it is sometimes by dying that you realise how not to die next time. It has a very moving ending sequence in my opinion. I am not a fan of over-sentimental games but this game manges to be both touching and darkly comic.
If you are a fan of old school platform games, going way back to the 80s/90s, then this is a must play. Rick Dangerous comes to mind actually as that was also about trial and error.
