Please rain feedback on me. But be gentle - this is my first game. I am already scared as hell :(
Antumbra is a very odd game. It's creepy, scary, horror and incredibly hard. So hard, that you can and should expect to die dozens of times. My inspiration was thing such as Darkseed, Silent Hill, Hellraiser, Event Horizon, Shivers and Lovecraft.
Antumbra is also a very special "child" to me. Because I've made it mostly for myself. Because right now, I am having a very difficult time in my life. And I had to vent. So I took all my nightmares, my fears, my anger, sorrow and misery... And I turned it into a game. Antumbra is the most personal creation I ever made.
It's also my first game, that I made from scratch, and finished - all by myself. The game was supposed to be a lot bigger and with RPG elements but I had to cut that out due to lack of time. And It's also the first adventure game I ever tried developing. I would like to make Antumbra 2, with better graphics and longer gameplay but I have no idea would anybody actually play it. So here's this. If you would like more - please follow me wherever I am, specially at facebook, as its my primary communication channel. Please support me - and I'll make more. If you had enjoy the ride - let me now.
And if not? Well, then maybe go play CoD or Cookie Clicker or some other crap - I don't care :P
PS: If you guys would be interested I can stitch an OST from Antumbra. But only if enough people will request.
Kudos, have fun and see you at the Crossroad of Rust and Moss.

Imagine Alice in Wonderland and Silent Hill hooked up and had a baby. And then the baby got adopted by Lovecraft and raised on the board of Event Horizon during its virgin flight. Antumbra 2 is that child.
Antumbra 2, as its prequel is a very surreal point-and-click horror adventure game. It has a powerful storyline, immersing audio, surreal graphics and atmosphere thick and sticky like tar.
Its an adventure game like nothing else, taking inspiration from things like Silent Hill, Darkseed, Event Horizon, Lovecraft, H.R. Giger, Zdzislaw Beksinski, Hellraiser, David Firth animations, Alice in Wonderland, Planescape: Torment and many many others.
The idea is to make Antumbra 2 to be for Antumbra 1 what Half Life 2 was for Half Life 1 - to take everything what was great in the prequel and expand it, polish it, add new extensions, and basically to make it bigger, better and more badass.
Antumbra 2 is an attempt to bring back from the grave the Adventure/Point and Click genre which over the years degraded into Hidden Object Games with difficulty setting locked on kindergarten level.
