Análisis

“No sólo nos pone frente a unos cuantos puzzles, los envuelve con un bonito estilo artístico y se permite presumir de ello. Podría hacer simplemente esto, y seguiría siendo un juego digno de ser jugado, pero además usa pequeños y sutiles toques de forma inteligente.”
http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2013/12/07/review-nihilumbra/64848/

“El juego al completo está genial, pero para mi la presentación lleva a Nihilumbra de ser un indie divertido e inteligente a algo realmente especial. Su presentación rivaliza con juegos como Braid o Limbo. Todo parece dibujado a mano y un poco etéreo, una mezcla entre una película de Tim Burton y un cómic de Jhonen Vasquez. El apartado visual está complementado por una banda sonora orquestal que bien podría estar firmada por Danny Elfman,y una narración que proporciona una voz genial a la historia. El tono del juego es serio, y la presentación realmente realmente la apoya en lugar de dinamitarla y hacer que parezca tonta.”

“Aquí Nihilumbra brilla al máximo nivel(Modo Vacío). Mientras que el modo historia apenas nos da un atisbo del potencial tras las mecánicas del juego, el Modo Vacío demuestra la genialidad de la obra de BeautiFun Games. Nos proporciona los mejores niveles de Nihilumbra, poniendo a prueba tus ánimos, a la vez que mantiene la curva de dificultad para ir resolviendo puzzles más fáciles. Este modo te mantiene contra las cuerdas sin emplear una lógica opaca, haciendo que te replantees como te aproximas a la resolución de problemas. Además, hay incluso un par de giros argumentales al final de la historia, los cuales hacen que el juego acabe siendo una experiencia que merece totalmente la pena.”

Acerca de este juego

Sumérgete en el inmenso mundo de Nihilumbra y acompaña a Born en su aventura para encontrarse a sí mismo mientras intenta escapar de su inevitable maldición.
Born es un ser creado a partir de la nada absoluta. Cuando abandona el vacío y aparece en el mundo, comienza un largo viaje en el que aprenderá a usar los colores de su alrededor, que le conferirán poderosas habilidades; aunque tendrá que pagar un altísimo precio.

El vacío debe estar unido. Lo reclama y no dejará de perseguirle jamás, destruyendo todo lo que toque a su paso. A cambio de seguir vivo, Born condenará la tierra que pisa, haciendo que desaparezca para siempre.

Advertencia: Nihilumbra ha sido diseñado de forma que todo el mundo pueda disfrutar de su historia, incluso sin una experiencia previa con juegos de puzzles. Sin embargo, los jugadores que busquen un verdadero reto cuentan con un modo especialmente pensado para ellos, el Modo Vacío, en la segunda parte del juego.

Aqui teneis el analisis de este juegazo

PD: si no explico en si para que sirven los colores o "como se juega" es porque lo considero spoilers, ya que los colores se van desbloqueando por el camino y cada uno, te da una habilidad diferente.

Me encanta, simple pero complicado, sencillo de entender pero difícil de llevar a cabo.

Cuentas con 5 colores que hacen diferentes cosas como rebotar, correr o prender fuego a los enemigos. Pero no siempre podrás usarlos y tendrás que comerte el coco cuando te tapan la solución más evidente.

La segunda vuelta es menos intuitiva y tienes que pararte más a pensar las cosas pero es bastante posible acabarla, las plataformas son algo más complicadas por eso de que te restringen los sitios para usar colores pero se puede salir. Al acabarla te dan un "idioma extra" y hace que te entren ganas de jugar una 3º vuelta.

Recomendadísimo, no sé cómo con lo complicado que se pone a veces la gente puede jugarlo en la tablet. Es con ratón y lo pasas mal x)

"You are born. What are you? You shouldn't be alive.
You will never escape from this place. This is not a game."
Son las primeras palabras del narrador,
quien desalienta constantemente al protagonista a seguir
mientras intenta escapar del vacío absoluto, vacío que irá
destruyendo todo a su paso con la intención de atraparlo.

El argumento es bastante profundo,
mezcla el concepto sombrío de la nada
con una estética con mucha armonía.
La jugabilidad es muy interesante.
A medida que avanza el juego vas consiguiendo
habilidades necesarias para resolver los puzzles.
La dificultad es bastante baja,
aunque el verdadero desafío es ganar el void mode
que se destraba una vez terminado el modo historia,
en el que ya tenés disponibles las 5 habilidades
que se consiguen pero con ciertas restricciones,
limitandote a no poder usar determinadas habilidades
en determinados momentos del juego.
Además, una vez terminado el void mode,
se destraba un nuevo "idioma"
que consiste en un relato del juego atípico
con un sentido del humor completamente paródico.

Brillante, Fantastico, Magnifico, Puedo decir mas y me quedo corto.


Este juego es una joyita de oro, Tenemos ante nosotros a Born, Habitante del Vacio, El mundo de la nada, Tu objetivo siempre es escapar de ese vacio que te quiere atrapar, Quieres tener vida por que estas vacio, Pero ese vacio por donde pasa destruye la naturaleza, Y como escapas del Vacio? Pues con colores, Los colores son habilidades que vas obteniendo en cada Capitulo del juego, Cada habilidad tiene su uso, Vas mas lento, Vas mas rapido, Quemas a los enemigos, etc, Es un plataformas pero diferente con una idea bien ejecutada, Se nota que cuando tenian en mente crear un juego lo querian que fuese diferente y lo consiguieron, La dificultad de puzzles no es muy dificil en el modo Historia, Lo interesante es cuando terminas el modo historia y se desbloquea el modo Vacio, Ahi se pone ya dificil.

La musica esta muy bien, Te ayuda a meterme mas en la historia, Y por cierto la voz del narrador esta genial, Te hace que te metas mas aun en la historia, Y te cuenta cosas muy interesantes, La pega que tiene este titulo es su duracion, En 2 o 3 horitas te lo terminas, Pero tenemos el modo Vacio que le dobla la duracion asi que es algo positivo.


Este juego en oferta a 75% se pone a 1.74€, Yo lo compre en la tienda de Indiegala o HumbleBundle si no recuerdo mal y me costo mucho menos, Fue 1Usd Asi que por esos precios este juego tienes que comprarlo, Y sobretodo si te gusta las aventuras Atipicas de mundos raros y magicos, No te arrepentiras, Y si te arrepientes es por que no sabes valorar el arte en los videojuegos.

Muy recomendable este juego donde la narración y la música se mezclan dándole una gran vida a nuestro personaje, que a lo largo de la historia principal se le va cogiendo cariño (bastante) y te dan unas irrefrenables ganas de ver cómo terminará.

El modo historia, muy sencillo salvo en una o dos pantallas casi al final, pero cuenta con un verdadero plato fuerte con el modo Void (Vacío) donde radica toda la dificultad. Algunas veces con tanta dificultad que aún sabiendo los pasos a seguir debes contar con el factor suerte para lograrlo.

Como juego "indie" destaca por su originalidad con el personaje, unos retos/logros bien difíciles de superar. En aspectos como la historia, la voz del narrador, la música y el escenario me recuerda a juegos estilo "Child of Light".

Para móvil: Lo recomiendo.
Para Steam: No.

No soy gran fan de los juegos de móviles, nunca he jugado a una conversión móvil-pc que mereciera la pena, y Nihilumbra no es de esos. Es entretenido, lo primero que busco siempre en cualquier videojuego. Pocos puzles suponen un reto (y no es que sea yo muy muy bueno).

Me crispan ciertos aspectos gráficos, como el choque entre 3 estilos de dibujo muy diferentes: personajes, objetos (botones, cajas, etc.) y fondos. Digamos que entre personajes y fondos se justifica, pero los elementos con los que se interactua son ajenos a todo ello, como sacados de otro juego o hechos con prisa.

Controles adecuados, mecánica muy curiosa. A pesar de contar con una mecánica de pintar, poco vista, queda un poco desaprovechada en la historia principal, el modo desbloqueable se lo queda todo (en este modo incluso retiro lo dicho de "no supone un reto").

La música es muy adecuada, quizás lo mejor del juego. Destaco la pista que suena en la parte final de cada mundo. Y hablando de audio, tengo que hablar de esa voz. La voz que te persigue y de la que no puedes desprenderte, a la que acabé temiendo más que al propio 'Vacío'. Es correcta, hasta que aparece en cada pantalla... en cada pantalla... en cada pantalla...

La historia, no es nada nuevo, pero recuerda que estamos hablando de un port de un juego de móvil, y ahí no hace falta innovar. Es más, quizás en esa plataforma Nihilumbra sea un soplo de aire fresco, tras tanto arcade y tanto pájaro.

No es una obra maestra, pero es producto español, ya solo por eso merece la pena darle una oportunidad. Sin duda quiero ver que más pueden hacer los de BeautiFun Games.

Lo primero de todo, decir que yo pagué 1,74 por él, y no casi 7 euros, que es su precio habitual. Por 1.74 es un juegazo. 7 euros me parece un poco excesivo.
Entrando en el asunto: es un juego de plataformas con una estética muy chula y unos recursos, que el juego llama colores, muy similares a los geles del Portal 2, que hacen que las superficies se modifiquen: sobre ellas corres más, rebotas...
Al menos hasta donde yo he jugado, que no me queda mucho para pasármelo, tengo un doble sabor de boca. La primera parte, donde vas descubriendo los mundos y consiguiendo los colores, me parece muy fácil. Excesivamente fácil, llegando a un poco aburrida en algunos puntos: parece un tutorial de dos horas. La segunda parte, el "modo vacío" me parece muy muy muy chula. La dificultad ya es adecuada, tiene puzzles que, al menos a mí, me hicieron pensar en muchos puntos. En otras partes hace falta un poco de skill (poca) para saltar en el punto justo, coger la inercia de los saltos en el sentido adecuado...
En resumen, lo recomiendo mucho, sobre todo en los momentos muertos que no sabes muy bien a qué jugar. Es divertido, y engancha, especialmente la segunda parte. Mi recomendación es que, aunque la primera parte sea un poco lenta, le déis una oportunidad hasta llegar a la segunda.

Nihilumbra, un juego de plataformas con una mecánica de juego muy lograda y original, pero donde destaca realmente es en la ambientación. No tiene soporte para mando, pero debido a su peculiar mecánica de juego no sería cómodo jugarlo con este.

Ideas+motivation=indie games.

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.

Negative things:

-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.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the in-game time Steam is showing for me -- I played my first two times through on my DRM-free copy :)

Disclaimer: The game does require some hand-eye coordination and patience. If you have neither, you probably won't get very far ;)

Basic options include choice of seven languages and separate sliders for Music, Sound, and Voice, plus mono or stereo sound and mouse sensitivity. The game automatically adjusted itself to my widescreen, and graphic options include choice of screen resolution, Enhanced color effects, HD textures, VSync, or Automatic settings (which was my preference)

As with most games of this type, you don't just save at any time -- there are save points. Just touch the globe -- the small lights (aka checkpoints) that will "forgive your mistakes" -- to save your progress. These are nicely spaced, so don't worry!

Unlike most of these games is that we have multiple profiles to choose from (three of them,) so we can switch profiles if more than one person wants to play the game at once.

If you hit Esc. during gameplay, you'll see a button that says "Resume Game" and three symbols: A compass, a swirl, and some gears. Clicking on the gears will take you to the game settings, the middle button (the swirl) will take you back to your last checkpoint (you can cancel if you didn't mean to hit that button!) and the compass will take you back to the maps page, and from there you can get back to the main menu by clicking on the arrow at the bottom right of the page.

Where to start? Well, I guess at the beginning would be best!

The game very clearly shows us how to play, without being annoying in any way. The instructions are seamlessly introduced by our narrator, who stays with us throughout our journey, giving us new information and telling us the story. What a wonderful voice they chose, and such an interesting way to progress the story!

The controls are basic to start with -- the arrow keys to move left and right, and the space bar to jump. OR, you can use the letter 'a' to move left, the letter 'd' to move right, and the 'w' button to jump. I recommend trying this setting, as later in the game it's nearly impossible to continue to use the arrow keys whilst managing your colors! As we progress, we discover colors which allow us to affect the world around us. The game teaches us to use these colors very clearly, so don't worry! Each color has a different effect, and I don't want to ruin any surprises, so I'll just mention the first two: The only color we have at the very beginning is purple, which is unusable until we discover other colors, for it allows us to erase any colors we place or find. Soon we will learn how to use blue, which creates an icy surface where it is placed. NOW we can use the purple, if we so desire. ;) Each world area we visit teaches a new color ability, and all told, we have five worlds and five colors: Blue, brown, green, yellow, and red (though not in that order.)

So how do we use our colors? It's really very easy. In the top right corner is an orb showing your current color. Click on it to open up your color palette (see the first picture in post #1 for a visual.) Choose whatever color you need for the current situation you're facing. To place the color, simply hold down your mouse button and swipe the cursor over the surface you want to coat.

You have a limited amount of color to use, and sometimes it's necessary to remove the color you've placed to complete the current puzzle. To do so you COULD click on the color palette, choose purple, and click-and-drag the areas where you want to remove it... OR, you can do it the easy way and simply right-click-and-drag. :D

During my second time through the main story I discovered that we can easily and quickly change our color by simply using the scroll wheel on the mouse! Whee~! Happy day!

The experience is really the driving force of the game. It's one thing to watch someone play it, and something else to actually sit back and do it for yourself. Take your time. Discover. Learn. Let yourself be immersed in this beautiful and deadly world. You could power through all the scenes and ignore all of that, but you'd really be missing out.

The primary focus of the game is discovery. Find your way through the worlds without being damaged or reclaimed by the Void. Nihilumbra is very story-driven, and for the most part, we have plenty of time explore and figure out how to solve the puzzles. Towards the end of each world, the Void will advance, leaving us with only a certain amount of time to get through the final screens. The use of the scroll wheel to change colors makes a big difference in the difficulty level, but even if you're doing the point-and-click method (which I was the first time through!) it's still doable.

Five colors, five worlds... Before I knew it, I came to 'The End' and was watching the credits. *cry* I felt so wistful, wishing that it hadn't ended so soon, wishing that there was more... Two hours is all it took (the second time 'round,) yet I felt that it was still worth the asking price.

. . . except that it wasn't 'The End' at all! It turned out that this was only the beginning of my journey in Nihilumbra, and the true challenge still lay before me. Now the 'Void Mode' was unlocked, and the focus of the game changes. We've finished with the main story, but still have much to do! Every single save point from the main game is now a complex puzzle that needs to be solved, and all puzzles must be completed to have true closure for the story. There are no save points during these puzzles, and I can tell you for certain that you will die -- over and over again -- before you're able to figure things out. The story-driven, take-your-time adventure is over, and is now filled with one complex, mind-bending puzzle after another. Though I had a couple of "how the heck am I supposed to get past that?" moments, I was able to get through the main story without even thinking about about looking at a walkthrough. The Void gameplay, though? I couldn't figure out the very first screen! Mahaha~ I admit that I've had to look a couple of times, but I've been finding great joy in figuring things out on my own whenever I can.

Am I finished with the game? Not even close, but I'm enjoying every moment I spend playing. I can't even begin to tell you how beautifully-done this game is. The combination of story with narration are poignant and thought-provoking, leaving us with a lot to consider, and I found it equally moving my second time through (the main story -- still working on the Void section!) The music is beautiful, though I found it better to have the music and sound effects half the volume of the narration. For me, it was the perfect balance. I really loved everything about the game, and I can't recommend it highly enough! Two thumbs up!

Finished the game today - 100% !
I was playing it very slowly, enjoying the concept, story, drawings, ideas, music and all the collors !
Story mode was sometimes a bit easy.On the other hand, void mode was, in some parts, quite hard !

The game has replay value and I'm sure I'm gonna play it again !

Definitely worth buying ! Recommended !

Nihilumbra is a platformer with a few twists. You go through many different enviroments while learning about colors, its abilities as well as yourself. The game revolves around the subject of life, death and existence. It really gets to you sometimes...having to reconsider all that you know. This game isn't complete without puzzles, some are self-explanatory while others require some thinking. There are achievements that are really easy to acquire, while others require patience and practice. Overall, the concept is unique for a standard platformer.

Highly recommend it for those looking into some good platformers. Rating: 8.5/10

Nihilumbra is an amazing puzzle-platformer where you fight the dark void with colour and life.
It has everything a good game needs:
  • meaningful background story
  • innovative gameplay concept
  • creative level design with awesome artwork
  • beautiful & eerie music, voice and sound effects
  • comfortable raise in difficulty as you advance in the game
  • challenging hard mode
I was instantly hooked and highly recommend this game to everyone.

this game was cool, original and also fun to play, which seem to be uncommon qualities in most indie games. some of the level design is kind of cheap in the sense that forces you to die a few times before finding the solution to a path. it never gets bad enough to make you want to stop, though. the puzzles are quite easy and it feels more like a platformer than a puzzle game, but the "puzzle" parts are enjoyable and genuinely fun and neat. it's kinda short for the asking price but it's still quite nice.

it's got its flaws: the narrator is quite prevalent and if you dislike his voice at all it might get on your nerves. the level design issue that i brought up earlier isn't really a deal breaker or anything but it's still there.

but despite these flaws, its high points are super cool and i think it's definitely worth buying and playing. it's a pretty neat game.

I. Love. This. Game.

I am one of those people that really loves the narration. It reminds me of Portal mixed with this cool flash animation I once played. The artwork is awesome, and I love the color scheme. It was a lot of fun to play.

Now for a more in-depth review:

Main Story: This is a really nice indie puzzle game, and the feel is similar to Portal. The concept of the colors is nice, but it does get repetitive the further you get into the game. Accept that you'll die a few times on some of the levels because you won't be prepared for what's coming. The puzzles are simple, though. If anything, play through the entire main story. It's short and worth trying.

Void Mode: Void mode is hard! I'll give them that. It's a nice challenge, but at times, it seems to be a little too difficult. You have to have the timing just right to get through the levels. As void mode goes on, you'll notice that some levels are super difficult and some are super easy. It feels like the developers might have been running out of ideas as it goes on (or just gave up - the cave levels on void mode are super easy). I got through the entire thing without help, so it's doable. Just accept that you'll die many, many, many times to get through it.

Secret Language: If you get to this point, it is worth playing through the main storyline in the secret language. It appears just to be the developer's rant mode. Some of it is really stupid, but some of it is really funny...especially the end. The one thing I didn't like is that they assumed that you are most likely a guy playing. Ummmm...no. I find that slightly offensive since I'm a girl and a gamer.

Achievements: They are super reasonable and at just the right difficulty. I'll admit I did look up which level the Easter egg was hidden (though I didn't look up where in the level). I would have eventually found it if I replayed the entire game again to look for it. I saved that achievement for last (after already having played the game through three times), and I was being lazy.

Overall, I would highly recommend this game. I don't think it's for everyone, but it is a fun way to pass the time. Yes, it's worth the cost with or without a sale. :)

I have said ALOT about many Indie Titles. But this one in particular I was blown away from. Everything from your lonely protagonist to seeing the world dieing as you play to the music to the story is absolutely close to almost tear jerking. (Yes I almost cried at a video game if you can say that maturely it doesn't make you weak it makes you a VERY strong person.) Nihliumbra is now literally slated as my absolute favorite Indie title of possibly all time. Everything about it pulls you in. Would if I could buy a copy 100x over just to tell the developer I loved this game that much.

Nihilumbra is a really hard game to review because it's almost impossible to describe properly.

You play as Born, a being that emerges from the Void & takes on a humanoid shape. You explore the world, gaining colours, each with an ability to help you progress. You 'paint' them onto a surface to activate that ability, whether it's making the surface slippery, sticky, burning hot, bouncy or conductive. You then use these colours to solve puzzles, defeat Void monsters & escape the Void as it hunts you across the side-scroller world.

Sounds a bit plain & simple, but it is actually a fabulous little game. The graphics are perfectly judged; pretty but simple, not overblown for a side-scroller. The music is as good as it gets, varied & often haunting & eerie.

The greatest part is the narration. It's not constant, but what there is, is a real asset to the game. I could never quite tell if it was Born's own voice berrating & encouraging him to resist & fight to exist, an external voice talking to Born, or simply a narrator talking to the player. The narration is presented in what can best be described as a moving picture-book, with the words that are being spoken appearing prominently on the screen in large text. You are able to play without stopping to wait for the text to fade though, which shows sensible design.

The puzzles are challenging, generally requiring you to make use of the newest colour, but always you have to think about all of them throughout. Even the length is perfectly balanced, with a 2nd play through built in if you haven't had enough, but doesn't necessarily add to the story.

In fact, I'm struggling to think of much that's wrong with Nihilumbra, aside from the fact that it is a very quirky game that won't appeal to everyone. At a stretch, it's not the ultimate in immersion, but given that Nihilumbra's main plot is only a few hours long, it doesn't need to be. Everything about it feels complete, a game that has fulfilled it's entire starting breif.

If you are interested in a well-rounded, well though-out & beautifully scripted game that is something totally different, then you will almost certainly get something out of Nihilumbra. I'm really pleased to be able to say I own & have played Nihilumbra.
