Nihilumbra review and related posts

I’ve added a review to the haunting platform game Nihilumbra, one of the more absorbing and distinctive adventures I’ve come across on iOs.

I had a very positive reaction from the developers included in the first batch of reviews. I uncovered several interesting things: many of the developers were familiar with the other titles I’d reviewed (and also¬†my own, which was pleasing.) Eddy Boxerman (Osmos) had even written a series of blog posts on the subject of ambient and zen games, which are well worth a read. It feels as if there is a ‘scene’ building in the quiet spaces.

I also discovered that three of the five titles came from Germany, which I hadn’t been aware of when I made the initial selection.
