We tend to fall for dark, artsy games, and the Mac App Stores seems to be full of them. One of the most recent is Nihilumbra ($10), from Beautifun Games. Available at a ten percent discount to celebrate its launch, it puts you in the body of a creature created from nothingness, named Born. It’s a side-scrolling physics puzzler that looks to be worth some attention.
Using five different colors, you can change the ground physics in the game. Whatever you think of the gameplay though, it’s hard to deny the appeal of the graphics and animation. With beautiful backgrounds and simple, dark characters, it’s a nice juxtaposition. Ported from the iPad, this edition includes voice acting, new HD textures, and more.
