There’s nothing like a dark themed indie puzzle platformer to get me more than excited. That’s why I was really interested when I stumbled upon Nihilumbra. I basically had my checklist ready. Does it look dark? Check. Is it an indie game? Check. Is it a puzzle platformer? Check. Does it look like I could have some fun with it? Definitely. And that is what brings us here.
Nihilumbra puts you in control of Born, a strange creature created from the Void. In the game, however, you are being chased by the very place from which you spawn. By using the power of colors, you have to not only get away from the void which is trying to claim you back, but you have to destroy some pretty creepy looking monsters. It also looks like puzzles can be solved in multiple ways, which always adds to the excitement of puzzle games.
That’s enough of my babbling, here’s the new trailer. Does it look like something you could get into?
