'Nihilumbra' Coming to Wii U - Screens

by Rainier on March 31, 2014 @ 4:54 p.m. PDT

Nihilumbra is a dark tale that takes shape as a solid puzzle platformer where you play as Born, a weird but also charming being that one day separated and grew up from The Void.

Discover the beautiful world of Nihilumbra and join Born on his adventure to find himself whilst trying to escape from his inevitable curse.

Born was created from the absolute nothingness: The Void. But somehow he separates himself from the black emptiness and appears in the world. This is where his long odyssey begins, in which he will learn how to use the colors around him to gain powerful abilities and transform the world.

However, his experiences come at a high price. The Void must be one. It seeks to reclaim him and will never stop chasing him, destroying everything in its path along the way. To survive, Born will have to condemn the earth he walks to its inevitable obliteration by The Void...


Nihilumbra is a peculiar sidescroller that combines touching mechanics with old school platforming. The main point of its gameplay is to use colours to paint the ground, changing its physic behaviour. At the same time you control Born. He can walk and jump and he will need help to surpass the different puzzle and avoid the treacherous enemies.

The controls are perfect for the Wii U GamePad; you can use the buttons to move Born while painting with the touch screen.

Besides, there is the two player mode: one player can use the Wii Remote Controller, Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller and play as Born on the TV; the other one will assist him with the Wii U GamePad, painting wherever necessary.

Nihilumbra will also allow playing just with the Wii U GamePad, without the TV screen.

  • Paint the world with the Wii U GamePad
  • Change ground physics using five colors
  • New asymmetric 2 players mode
