A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


Umbra is a couch multiplayer game inspired by the game mechanics of Tom Boy and Q*bert. We focused on the mechanic of colouring in tiles and expanded on that. Now you can grab a buddy and fight for dominance on the playing field. While colouring tiles you can strategically place traps to foil the opposite players game run. But be careful! You’ll also be chased by an almost invisible enemy, who’s out for your life.  As the all over game winner you’ll be treated to a cutscene of your characters dream. Nightmare or bliss? It’s all up to you.

This game was developed for the module "game mechanics I" at Game Design ZHdK.
