What is it about?

*** Apple's Best of 2012 Hidden Gems ***

For those who...

  • It’s the perfect game for fans of the puzzle-platformer genre.

Not for those who...

  • The game starts off rather slowly in order to focus on storytelling. If you want a true pick-up-and-play platformer, this isn’t it.

Why we love it

If dark and moody games are your thing, Nihilumbra is absolutely worth checking out. Just make sure to complete the massive adventure, because there’s a surprise waiting for you at the end.

Discover the beautiful world of Nihilumbra and join Born on his adventure to find himself whilst trying to escape from his inevitable curse.
Born was created from the absolute nothingness: The Void. But somehow he separates himself from the black emptiness and appears in the world. This is where his long odyssey begins, in which he will learn how to use the colors around him to gain powerful abilities and transform the world.

However, his experiences come at a high price. The Void must be one. It seeks to reclaim him and will never stop chasing him, destroying everything in its path along the way.
To survive, Born will have to condemn the earth he walks to its inevitable obliteration by The Void...
