Trailer: From a shadowy world, action platformer Somber seeks to creep players out

An open-world, action-platformer? That’s the billing for developer David Söderström’s Somber. A very different kind of side-scroller, it hits next week.

Out of the Gloom

Somber is what would happen if Tim Burton developed LIMBO but added in the game mechanics from the Ori series. Built meticulously for those interested in a real platforming challenge, Somber can be experienced in a number of ways: slowly, allowing players to soak up the atmosphere – or quickly, like a more traditional platformer.

Players take on the role of a friendly but deadly creature whose mission is to help anyone in need and make things right. But in order to do any of that, our protagonist will first have to roll, bounce, and climb his way out of the dimly lit world of Gloom … and somehow live to tell the tale.

You Will Get There press release

Somber is on the way for the PC, and scheduled to arrive on October 12th.
