App Description

IMPORTANT WARNING: Nihilumbra is not compatible with the new iOS 8.0 Update and next ones. We are working on a fix to that problem. We are a small team and adapting the game to the new update takes time and effort. We expect to have the fix ready during the following weeks. Sorry for the inconveniences and thanks for the understanding.

*** Apple's Best of 2012 Hidden Gems ***

Nihilumbra is compatible with iPhone 4, 4S, 5, iPod Touch 4 and iPads. Has to be be downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection.

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...
