Nihilumbra

System: Wii U Release date: 14/05/2015

Nihilumbra is a dark 2D platformer that waits to snare anyone who dares download it from Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

You are Born, an entity given life from ‘the absolute nothingness’ known as The Void. Arriving in a strange land, you are beset by creatures from your most disturbing nightmares. Worse still, you’ve no weapon, which leaves you with but one option: run away. It’s a wretched start.

Fortunately, you’ll soon discover the ability to alter the colour of your surroundings by tracing paths on the landscape using the Wii U GamePad. Starting with blue, you create slippery surfaces to slide on, extending your jump. Green lends a rubbery quality to the world, trampolining anything that touches it. As you accrue more colours, you’ll encounter trickier puzzles and more devious traps, each needing a particular approach or combination of approaches. Prepare to experiment as Nihilumbra often demands pixel-perfect platforming!

A candle in the darkness comes in the form of the new Wii U multiplayer mode: control Born with a Wii Remote, while a friend uses the Wii U GamePad to paint the world. Sharing the burden can prove critical when dodging monsters and changing colours at the same time.

As you tread deeper into this haunting, beautiful land, The Void will eventually appear, a vast, black being reaching out from the left of the screen. It will pursue you inexorably, engulfing all before it – one touch, and you’re a ghost. But plan – and practise! – your route, make precision jumps, and you may just outrun it. It’s the only way you’ll solve the ethereal mystery of Nihilumbra, available from Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

  • Explore a bleak, 2D domain full of lurking terrors, and outrun an ever-advancing entity
  • Use colours to change the properties of the world in order to carve out an escape
  • Multiplayer mode lets you share movement and colour changes with a friend
