About Nihilumbra

About this game

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...

Nihilumbra has been designed in a way that everyone can enjoy its story, even without previous experience with puzzle games. However, players seeking for a challenge will find it on the second half of the game: the Void Mode.

"Another gem of its genre, that engages us like only a few titles can. Just a little recommendation: go for a second play-through when you finish it. There's a nice surprise...

"This surreal trip delivers an interesting rhythm of puzzles and platforming."

IGN Italia

"Nihilumbra, mixing action and cleverness, is unable to create a perfect balance between the two souls and the result it's a sort of disappointment. The lack of rhythm,...

You can watch my Video Review here: https://youtu.be/YhQ_XGRv2Js Interesting story, original game mechanics based on colors, atmospheric graphics, responsive control and orchestral music are on the plus side. There are not many flaws, maybe a too high difficulty of some passages and sometimes annoying commentary. Is this game worth to play? The answer is yes indeed! Pros: - original game mechanics - story - graphics - control - music Cons: - difficulty - sometimes commentary I really enjoyed the game so I am giving it Thumbs Up and VideoGaming Father's Index 8 out of 10.

I knew nothing about this game at the moment I bought it. Worth every penny, true hidden gem. If you like logic platformers which don`t require cat-like reflexes Nihilumbra is the game for you. Don`t play it when you are down, it`s a bit depressing.

Not great, not terrible.

A decent idea that feels underdeveloped. I only found a few of the puzzles in the game challenging; the rest were fairly trivial. The voiceover isn't great, either. I'd still give it a light recommendation if you can find it on sale. Otherwise, I'd recommend GRIS instead (it deals with similar themes).
