Nihilumbra was nominated for the "Guts and Glory" award, the international category in the Dutch Game Awards 2012. The award finally went to the game Back to Bed, but we got a great time there and we are very proud to had been nominated.

Here's a proof (that place was a bit too dark):

Congratulations to all the nominees and to the winners!

BeautiFun Games is hiring!

By : arie cell
We have to announce a terrible new... Freya, our beloved 2D artist and animator left our team. She is a great professional and an awesome friend and it's sad to see her go, so we wish her the best luck with her life!
We want to dedicate her this song:

Right now we are looking for a new minion to join our developer team of darkness, a new soldier to enlist our fearless squad of indie awesomeness, a new BeautiFun member of joy and joyness!
It must be someone who lives near our office, because we have a chair waiting for him/her.

We have already received lots of CVs and we can say that it's going to be really difficult to choose someone. There's a lot of talent around here!

I should stop putting those Born faces everywhere... They are starting to look weird.

Well, we're sure that this will be a welcome release for non iOS users and the Steam community. However, the Steam Greenlight system is quite strict and requires sufficient votes before the game will be available.

Beautifun Games are proud to announce the addition of Russian language to Nihilumbra, in the following weeks the update will be available to download from the Apple Store.

We want to thank all the Russian-speaking players for the great acceptance the game has had. This update is dedicated to all of you!

Ecce Born

By : arie cell
We asked for some help to improve the graphics of our game, and make Born look shinier and better. A lovely lady from Spain recommended us this aesthetic.

What do you think? Pretty awesome, isn't it?

The Creature

By : arie cell
Talking about indie games...
Have you heard about this one?

This awesome looking game is called The Creature. It's been created by a bunch of students using Unreal Engine. But... why do we talk about it on the BeautiFun Games' blog?
Pol Urós, one of our programmers, and Kevin Cerdà, the game designer, worked (a lot, actually!) in the development of The Creature. This means that The Creature is a game with (more or less) the same kind of spirit as Nihilumbra! Yay!

An awesome game with awesome puzzles as well!
The legend of The Creature:
“A long time ago, there was an incredible creature with outstanding powers wandering freely around the world.
It brought chaos and destruction everywhere it passed and no one was able to face it.
But one day, the seven heroes of the light joined their forces to fight the evil foe, in a long and glorious battle that lasted one hundred years.
Finally, they realized that it was impossible to destroy the creature, and they decided to split it into seven pieces and hide them deeply into a giant dark cave and pray for the creature to remain slept.
But now, thousands of years later, the creature has awakened.
It’s hungry, but it has something to do before feeding… it needs to find all the parts of it’s body to be completed and reach the surface once again.”

Here you can find the trailer:

And an unbelievable teaser (Highly recommended):

So... what else do you need? Hurry up and download the game!
Did I say that it's available FOR FREE!?
http://thecreatureproject.wordpress.com/download/ (the download requires patience).

Hope you enjoy it!

There's someone new in town! And his name is Born!
You may know him, he's our main character; that awesome ninja (or monk) with shiny eyes, created from the Void; the one that has to fight for his right to exist using the colors that will learn from the world, while trying to become one of its legit inhabitants...

But he's more than that! He is becoming so freaking famous that he's starting to appear on unlikely places. We call this phenomenon Bornification.

The Best Dictionary in the World (TBDW Royal) describes Bornification as...
Bornification: the act of turning something into a bad joke with Born, the main character of Nihilumbra. Awesome game, by the way.

And here are some examples!

Do you like them? Why don't you send us some creative Bornifications? We'd love to see them on our facebook wall, or our BeautiForum! The best ones will receive a special gift!
Hint: The special gift is true love. No money.
