Nihilumbra brings to our screens forgetfulness and emptiness so we try to escape from the emotional states through which one does not want to spend much time in your life.
An adventure game with lots of puzzles and platforms is among those games that we always like to take a moment to explore every corner of the world ahead. A dream world awaits you at the same time the characteristic of Monument Valley, Limbo or Adventures of Little Eco and has many surprises to discover, while jumping between platforms and avoid those traps with spikes that are meant for you to return to start the game.
We are in this world as Born and we have to solve a series of questions to find out why is he lost in these inhospitable places as we could escape the curse that follows us wherever we go. The aim of Nihilumbra is finding himself after learning that you were created from absolutely nothing.
A bit of philosophy is not bad for a game, and playing Nihilumbra brings those thoughts that sometimes in life we have about our role on this planet and where we go when no longer breathe more around here. All this is present in this game that offers about 10 hours, inspired by classic games and a good choice in the physical terrain for these jumps are more essential than they at first appear.
Nihilumbra is a game where you need to take a break and enjoy peace of mind, because at the beginning we will have no hurry to move forward and rather go wandering through the gloomy landscapes so brilliantly presented to us by the team behind the visual in this game. Without also forgetting the soundtrack created by a Spanish composer. A video game created with quite a high technical level in every aspect.
A game that has that “something” like Broken Age, and that developers show that they know what they do with a great technical achievement in each element having. You got free on the first two levels to have to go through box to access the entire small universe with which account this great game.
So if you’re a fan of Monument Valley, Broken Age or Limbo, surely you’ll find a new little gem with Nihilumbra. Highly recommended.
