Majestic has issued a statement to Gamespot in response to accusations that point-and-click adventure Limbo of the Lost contains “similar” artwork to that included in Oblivion and Thief.

“In response to the shocking notification that some alleged unauthorized copyrighted materials submitted by sources external to the development team have been found within the PC game Limbo of the Lost, we (the development team) have given our consent and full cooperation to both publishers who are recalling all units from all territories immediately.”

So. Who’s actually to blame, then?
