BeautiFun Games at IndieCade16!

We have been a bit quiet these last five days… the reason? We were still suffering the jet-lag of our 15 hour flight to Los Angeles! But, for those who have been checking out our social networks, you know we’ve been busy as hell :D



As we told you on our previous post, we were attending for four days IndieCade Festival at the University of Southern California, presenting our latest title “Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age“, and also meeting all the game developers, publishers and fans who where there too.

We had the chance to show our game to Sony and Abigail Tyson from Adult Swim (we absolutely love EVERYTHING from Adult Swim – from the videogames they publish to Rick and Morty and UMO’s videoclip!). Hopefully, we will tell you some news very soon in relation to this… but let’s don’t anticipate anything!



Also, we met the people from Polyraptor Games (Uruguay) and The Stonebot Studio (El Salvador). It was such an honour to get to know each other and play your games Rumpus and Stereo Aereo. They look incredible (handsome) and we are looking forward to play them on our consoles, computers or mobile devices :)

In November we have another festival coming, and this time on Bilbao (Spain). BeautiFun Games will be at Fun & Serious Festival, and also Megamagic, so see you there! For now, we will share with all of you some photos from our trip to LA: http://beautifungames.com/?p=2306

BeautiFun Games will be at IndieCade 2016

We’ll be attending the Californian festival from Oct 13th to 16th!

It’s been a year or so since our last videogame festival abroad, but Festival Season has arrived again for BeautiFun Games. This time, our studio has its next stop in Los Angeles, California . We are already preparing our long journey to Orange County from the distance (Barcelona!), as you can see:



September has been a busy month for us: we have been preparing our trip and also giving the final touches to new projects we are currently working on… and we will be unveil some details sooner than later.



Even though our game “Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age” was not selected in IndieCade 2016’s official selection, we will be attending the whole festival, including the IndieXchange and the GameTasting events. In case you are interested in getting in touch with us or to become acquainted of our games, just send us an email here info@beautifungames.com and let’s meet at IndieCade 2016… or at Hollywood Boulevard!

Have an incredible day,

- BeautiFun Games Team.

“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)”

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...

Advise: 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.
