And Nihilumbra is a good way to prove indie games can have a space on the AAA games on the market
Colors, unnending questions, and a desesperate pursuit to answer the most enigmatic question of yourself:
"Why are you here?"
Our journey begin with "Born" an unknown creature made by somehow on the Void, our character escape from it, after that you have to many question to face. To prove your existance.
This being adapt himself with a family and preferably form. A"scarecrown" (similar to a human form).
The narrator is so amazing , i consider it like a character on the story, because he is always there, he is always saying something about you, your enemy, your background, questioning yourself or giving you clues, annnything.....
The colors are an essential fact throught the story, a new color = a new power, a way to understand this new and strange world. Every single one has a purpose to help you. You would notice you eventually will need to mix them to get it done.
The OST is well done, specially on the void pursuit.
-Short: 3 hours to complete the main storyline (but it have a void mode to replay the story)
-The puzzles aren´t very convoluted, fews are going to stop you and make you think for a moment.
This game has the word "originality" in every part of it, that is the most remarkable of the game. Is a philosophical game with a clearly message waiting in the end. Games like this makes you faith on indie games increases.
