“is the kind of game that many will look over because they think they’ve played things like it hundreds of times before. It’s not. This is a project filled with incredibly smart puzzle design and an important message at its core. Anyone who absentmindedly picked it up during a sale should do themselves a favor and play right now. If you don’t yet own it, then definitely consider making a purchase in the near future. Nihilumbra is a thoroughly enjoyable experience that will stick with you. (4.5/5)”

“The whole game is great, but for me the presentation takes Nihilumbra from being a fun and clever indie game to something really special. Its presentation rivals games like Braid and Limbo. Everything looks hand drawn and a bit ethereal, a mix between a Tim Burton movie and a Jhonen Vasquez comic. The visuals are complemented by an orchestral score that’s just Danny Elfman enough, and narration that is very well voiced for the story. The tone of the game is serious, and the presentation really supports that rather than undermining it and making it come off as silly.”

“Nihilumbra shines brightest here (Void Mode). Where the story merely hints at the potential of behind its mechanics, Void Mode demonstrates their genius. It brings out Nihilumbra’s best levels, testing your mettle while retaining the game’s penchant for easily understood puzzles. The mode tests you without employing opaque logic, making you reexamine how you approach problem solving. Plus, there’s even a couple story hooks that bring some additional closure, thus sweetening the deal. (4.5/5)”

Über dieses Spiel

Entdecke die riesige Welt von Nihilumbra und schließe dich Borns Abenteuer an, sich selbst zu finden, während er versucht, seinem unvermeidbaren Fluch zu entkommen.
Born wurde aus der absoluten Nichtigkeit gezeugt. Als er die Leere verlässt und in der Welt
auftaucht, beginnt er eine lange Odyssee, in der er lernen wird, die herumliegenden Farben zu nutzen, die ihm mächtige Fähigkeiten gewähren; aber er wird einen hohen Preis dafür zahlen.

Die Leere muss eins werden. Sie will ihn zurückholen und wird nie aufhören, ihn zu jagen, während sie dabei alles auf ihrem Weg zerstört. Um überleben zu können, wird Born die Welt verdammen müssen, auf der er geht, und lässt sie für immer verschwinden.

I picked this up during a Humble Bundle sale having never heard of it. I didn't know what to expect and really wasn't expecting much. To my surprise, Nihilumbra delivered and turned out to be one of the best and most underrated indie games I've ever played.

You are Born. Born was created from The Void but has somehow separated from it and is now in the world. However, The Void will not allow this and is now chasing Born in an attempt to suck him back into the darkness. In order for Born to escape The Void, he must allow everything else in his path be destroyed.

Nihilumbra is a puzzle-platformer. As you progress through the game, Born will be granted new colors, which the player can use to paint the terrain in order to solve puzzles and aid him in his platforming. In total there are five different colors. Each have a different use and create a different effect. Throughout the game, Born will be accompanied by a narrator that will talk to him. It is uknown exactly who this narrator is whether he be Born, The Void or something else. The narrator really gives this game it's charm and gives insight to the world and what is going on. Sometimes he says some really philosophical things and it really adds to the atmosphere. Speaking of that, the atmosphere is amazing. The combination of colors, textures, music and narration sets a very solemn, yet relaxing mood. The main part of the game is very short. It only took me about 4 hours to complete. However, once you complete it, you'll unlock “Void Mode” which is essentially hard mode. Void Mode offers the same levels but with different and much harder puzzles.

Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone that's a fan of platformers or puzzle-platformers. It's really unique and highly underrated. Nihilumbra is a very insightful, relaxing and fun experience. That's what this game is. It's more than just a game. It's an experience to be had.

The journey of the player character "Born" shows many parallels to the contemporary developmental psychology... the "exploratory age" of a child and the growth of the human personality.

“Ew, a mobile game getting a PC port? No thanks!” You might say. But wait! Not all portable titles are games with simple yet addictive mechanics looking to take your money. Nihilumbra is a neat little puzzle platformer from Spanish developer Beautifun Games. You take control of Born, a creature created by The Void, who escapes to the real world. Relentlessly pursued by that which created him, Born treks across new and strange environments, discovering what it truly means to be alive.
He isn’t the only being from The Void that has crossed over however. Every now and then you will encounter a new enemy, each more dangerous than the last. These, combined with various environmental hazards provide much of the challenge outside of the platforming. The jumping itself isn’t complex, but as the game progresses you will discover new colours which can be painted on the walls, ceilings and ground of the levels. The game has five separate worlds, and there is a colour tied to each of them.
The Frozen Hills grants you blue, a colour to make surfaces icy, helping you run faster or push previously unmovable objects. The Living Forest gives you green, allowing you to make surfaces bouncy. The Ash Desert provides brown, which makes anything you paint it on sticky. The Volcano grants you red, which heats up surfaces to burn objects and enemies alike. Finally, The City unlocks yellow, which conducts electricity, allowing you to link electrical objects together. Thankfully the controls translate to keyboard and mouse perfectly. Painting is as simple as left clicking and dragging, and doing the same with right click acts as an eraser.
Although the game is 2D, the first two colours in particular have a very Portal 2-esque feel about them. You will be using momentum to jump and bounce your way to new platforms, and although it sometimes lacks precision, it isn’t all that frustrating. You will often use multiple colours in the same puzzle. For example you might use yellow to activate a powerful electromagnet, lifting your enemies into the air. Using brown on the floor in front of you allows you to walk along underneath them without being attracted yourself. There are a good amount of well thought out puzzles here. None of them take particularly long to figure out though. The game as a whole is not all that hard, and can be completed in a few hours at most – an unfortunate leftover from the fast paced mobile platform it was born on.
Nihilumbra employs a simple, yet effective art style. Each level has its own colourful theme, often attempting to give you a feel of the heat of the area. The icy areas are very blue, and the volcano is red, for obvious reasons, but this also related to the story. As Born uncovers new colours he begins to feel warmer inside, as if The Void inside him is being filled. The main character himself begins as an amorphous blob, but upon entering the real world he decides to change himself to try and blend in. The first thing he encounters is a scarecrow however, so you spend the rest of the game naively jumping around as a cute, raggedy old shadow creature. The character design of the Void enemies is good too, with weird plant creatures which launch projectiles at you, and a huge snail-like thing that erases any colours it slithers over.
At the end of each world, there is a fast paced platforming section where you are being chased by The Void. Ever encroaching from the left of the screen, you simply have to stay ahead of it and reach the end. These are some of the weakest sections of the game, as it shows off the lack of accuracy the platforming has at times. Switching between colours quickly is cumbersome, especially when attempted at speed. I would have liked the action to pause when bringing up the colour menu, as I often got caught out without the colour I needed. Thankfully the game is liberally checkpointed, even in the normal levels, so you never lose much progress. These checkpoints also seem to return all of your colour to you. It feels as if you are using some sort of resource when painting, but this was never explained, and I never ran out, so I can’t be sure.
All in all, Nihilumbra is a short, but fun, puzzle platformer. The puzzles you encounter aren’t all that difficult, but they do require some thought, particular in later stages. The platforming itself isn’t all that good, but the unique painting mechanics make up for it. Mobile games are becoming more complex, and simply better overall, and it is nice to see that some of the higher quality ones are making the switch over to PC.

This is a masterpiece.
There are no more words to explain the feels into you while you play this game

BEFORE START: if you play only one time this game you'll be sure that you're playing one of the best indies in the world.

Translation: well, I'm going to say my point of view here. I'm Spanish so I played 3 times in Spanish and I have never found an error because the developers are from Spain. However, the english translation is very good and all the game is related in English with a very very deep voice.

Art: B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. That's the word... OH! I forgot to say the another word... PERFECT!

Replayeable: you can always play the story over and over again and again but the good point is this: if you start to memorize the levels you'll be ready to beat the story in the "Void mode" (this means more difficult) and you can always try to complete the game 100% with all the achievements.

= Puzzles: in my point of view they're not hard or easy, it's a normal-difficult game, you need the enough skills to beat it.

x Time (Normal story): the only bad thing is that the normal story time is too short for me.

Buy it 1000 times.
100% recommendable.
When I finished it I thought: Wow, now I know why it won those prizes... It's because it's a great game!
