Description

Nihilumbra is a puzzle-platform game. The player takes control of the Born, an entity born out of the nothingness of the Void, the game's antagonistic force. The Born journeys throughout the world in an attempt to live, but with the Void following in his wake, inadvertently causes the world's destruction.

The player will gather various powers from colored flowers as the Born heads through his existential journey. The flowers give the player the ability to paint the landscape with their fingers to alter its properties. For instance, the blue color allows the player to paint surfaces with ice, allowing them to slide across gaps, while the brown color allows the player to become sticky. There are five colors, and five worlds in all.

The Wii U version contains cooperative multiplayer for two players.
