SOMBER Swedish Action Platformer Heading to Steam October 12

Taking place in the semi-open world of Gloom, Somber is a hand-painted action platformer filled with stunning locales and terrifying encounters.

SOMBER Swedish Action Platformer Heading to Steam October 12

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.

Somber Key Features:

  • Make things right in a world filled with shadows
  • Living, breathing environments you can explore
  • Hauntingly beautiful, hand-drawn graphics
  • Requires precision platforming and nerves of steel
  • Atmospheric music score by Jonatan Söderström

Check out the Somber Steam teaser Trailer:

Somber will be available October 12 for PC for only $7.99 via Steam. You can wishlist the game right now.
