Nihilumbra – Failing the City

Nihilumbra is one of those games which should come with a trigger warning. If you don’t know, a trigger warning is something people like to throw around if something sets off a certain feeling or reaction.

A lot of indie people are particularly sensitive about things like that, especially since a lot more are coming out not just as gay, but as transgender too, but that’s another story.

The trigger warning for Nihilumbra should be about depression. I played up to halfway through and had to stop for a couple of days as the game was making me depressed. I like to think I’m mentally stable, but even this got to me… Anyway, here’s up to where I fail.
