Discover the huge 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. When he abandons the void and appears in the world, he begins a long odyssey where he will learn how to use the colors around, that will grant him powerful abilities; though he will have to pay a high price.

The void must be one. It reclaims him and will never stop chasing him, destroying everything on its way.

To keep being alive, Born will have to condemn the earth he walks, vanishing it forever.

Game Controls

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 touching screen.

Besides, there is the two players mode: one player can use the Wii™ Remote, 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.
