About This Game

WARNING: This game contains flashing lights that may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

Once upon a time in Midwinter,
while the Trees were sleeping,
the Moon cast a spell upon the Sun
turning him into Snow, shining,
falling into the Woods forever.
"Light is my Sword,
Darkness shall perish."

NIX UMBRA is an endless slow-burning first-person horror ritual set in an enchanted forest. How long can you survive the darkness?
