“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)”

Про цю гру

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.

I bought it just to get the insignia but I didn't expect how artistic the game is. It's enchanting and calming, it teaches a lesson and if you pay attention you can easily realize that the game talks about the depression. It was a great experience doing the story mode.

The gameplay is ok I suppose, but what kills it is the obnoxious narration. The whole experience just feels flat and trial-and-error

This game is beautiful, the art style and the gameplay are so peculiar. It's a nice puzzle game where you must find a way through different scenarios using your abilities, kind of easy at the start but the void difficulty is insane. The lore is weird, simple but cool (maybe nihilistic).


I like puzzle games which have an innovative gameplay and let you use different strategies for solving problems this is one of them.

10/10

Got this during the summer sale, and gotta say that it really does nto deserve the "very positive" that its overall rating gives it, and especially not worth the 8 bucks. I'll list some pros and cons real quick.

Pros: -interesting concept, both in game mechanics and in worldbuilding

cons: -scribbly graphics, not interesting to look at
-a tendency to fill a level with mostly easy puzzles, then one impossible one out of nowhere
-very uncreative enemy names, designs, etc.
-a narrator that's both irritating, refuses to stop holding your hand throughout the game, refuses to just shut up and let the player play, badly written monologue, and no one can tell if he's rooting for you, or trying to get you to give up.
-poorly executed central game mechanic, introducing unintuituve controls

All in all, wonderful concept, poor execution, takes itself too seriously. 2/10

A great artistic game. You are Born, a Void being running away from the Void, wondering what to do. In your journey to get away from the Void, you pickup up 5 colours, Blue, Green, Brown, Red and Yellow. These colours give you interesting powers when you paint with them and allow you to escape the Void. However, you inadvertently destroy 5 major locations as the Void chases after and there is a New Game Plus that allows you to right everything wrong.

Conclusion : A must play. It will remind you of games such as Portal 2 and Max:The Curse of Brotherhood.

PROS
1. Novel Monsters
Klimeth
Custodiss
Laser Cannon Void Creatures
Skelegoths
Flower Monster
Colour Absorber Flower

2. New Game Plus
You get more stages after "completing" the game.

3. Novel Powers
Green makes surfaces bouncy
Red makes them burn
Blue makes them icy and slippery
Brown makes them sticky and quiet
Yellow transmits electricity
Void destroys the colours

CONS
1. Linear Game
Well, there is only 1 way to go, right? What choice do I have?

2. New Game Plus Too Hard
Wow. I need to watch Youtube to solve this.

Оригінальний платформер-головоломка про істоту, яка народилася з Безодні і намагається від неї втекти. Ця істота має унікальну здібність - вона може розфарбовувати поверхні у різні кольори і цим надавати їм специфічні властивості. Наприклад оранжевий колір приклеює ворогів (і самого гравця теж!), зелений - дозволяє вище стрибати, білий - перетворює землю у лід, по якому можна ковзати і т.д. Комбінуючи різні кольори, ми і будемо проходити рівні, які поділяються на декілька тематичних світів. Причому кожен світ закінчується рівнем-погонею: за нами женеться Безодня і потрібно миттєво орієнтуватися в ситуації, щоб пройти рівень на швидкість, інакше - смерть.
Основна кампанія не дуже складна, і підійде будь-якому гравцю. Але після проходження сюжету відкриваються нові рівні, де починається справжній хардкор. Незважаючи на просту механіку гри, розбиті клавіатури і монітори гарантовані ))
Рекомендую гру кожному, хто любить нестандартні, цікаві головоломки.

Не можу сказати, що це шедевр. Досить посередня гра. Геймплей відверто розчаровує- ви будете контролювати кольори, кожен з яких має різні властивості. Сюжет... хм.. гра хоче чогось навчити, хоч моментами це виглядає дуже нав'язливо.
Але ближче до закінчення вона викликає якісь емоції, хоче щоб ви задумались. В іграх це зараз рідкість. Тому безперечно вона варта уваги. Але купуйте на розпродажах, так точно не прогадаєте.

Underrated magic

This game is amazing, really. It's a small life, which the player lives with the Born. A life full of danger, fear, regret and melancholy.
When the game takes you by the hand the only thing you can say is "WOW! this world is beautiful!" And the game does not release you until the final credits. And the only thing you can say after all is "What have I done, I have to fix it ..."

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.

Escaping from the void, trying to become more than you are and risking the world you seek in order to do so. This is the story of Nihilumbra, a puzzle based 2D platformer from Beautifun Games.

The game follows a vey narrative series of events travelling from the cold Icy hills through the forest, the desert, the volcano and finally to the city. Each location brings with it new challenges and a new skill to brave them. These skills come in the forms of colours, paints that can be spread around the environment at will. The first colour you obtain is blue, allowing the creation of ice. Then comes the green followed by the brown, creating bouncy and sticky surfaces respectively. From the volcano comes red, the ability to burn some things and supercharge others. Finally there is yellow, the ability to create conductive lines to transfer power from energy sources to unpowered machines. It's the combination of all of these that will let you progress and aid in your escape from the void.

The gameplay is well established as you play, with a "tutorial" for each new colour. The levels are relatively easy on the first play through but after finishing once there is a new "Void" version of the levels, being more difficult and involved. The controlling of the colours is intuitive and easy to do, and if you make a mistake it's just as easy to undo your moves.

The visual style is fantastic with detailed painted backgrounds and foreground objects that have a parallax effect. When applying colours it is always easy to distinguish. The soundtrack is one that is extremely well fitting and only adds to the atmosphere. The voice over is a crucial part of the game and it wouldn't be the same without it. The tone of voice is one that makes the player feel safe while traveling and discovering.

Overall the game is solid and everything seems to work as intended, some sections seem to be reliant on trial and error. There is a large difficulty curve between finishing the first playthrough and starting the second, it could have eased into it more.

It's has a good bang for your buck and the only thing I would like to see is a level editor with steam workshop integration. Other than that it's a great game.

One of my all-time favorite games. Nihilumbra is a side-scrolling puzzle game, where you control the lone protoganist, Born, guiding him through five varied realms. Born is alone, too- aside from the enemies in the game, which are few and far between, every landscape you travel through seems abandoned, deserted. It adds an apocalyptic feel to an already stark and melancholy game.

Born starts out with very few tricks up his sleeve- he can jump and move inexorably to the right, and the enemies he encounters are deadly. As you progress, though, you pick up new skills that allow you to alter the landscape around you- colors you can paint on the world to allow you to slide, bounce, stick, and more.

There's really two parts to this game- the story mode, which is relatively straight-forward but still retains a challenge, and the mode you unlock after beating the story, which is devilishly hard. The controls seemed fluid to me, though they take some getting used to- one hand moves Born, while the mouse uses the various colors to guide him along. The game rarely rushes you, and when it does, it's considerate enough to provide enough checkpoints to prevent too much repetition.

This seems to be Beautifun's Freshman game for the PC, and I am definitely looking forward to where they'll go from here.

Puzzle platformer, slow-paced, not very difficult. Main mechanic (besides moving your character) is altering game physics by "painting" 5 different colours (with different abilities, which are unlocked during main campaign) on almost any platform.

Campaign is short (~3 hours) which is basically a preparation for the harder mode (The Void, ~2x harder and longer), which is unlocked after beating the game for the first time. In this mode, you'll need to employ platforming skills and brain cells a bit more. Good thing is, almost any level can be finished with different approach (using different colours which adds to replayability). Beating the hard mode will unlock a change which will give you the reason to put few more hours into the main campaign from the beginning (this feature completely change the mood of the game, which is dark/depressing by its setting).

Steam achievements are not very difficult, most of them will be unlocked naturally by going through both playthroughs. Some requires higher platforming skill and exploration, but nothing impossible for 100%.

Fair price, decent length, good game. I was pleasantly surprised. Totally recommended!

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.
