Hand-painted action platformer Somber launching today on Steam

Somber is now available on Steam!

Developed by You Will Get There – and featuring stunning locales and terrifying encounters – Somber has players take on the role of a friendly (but deadly) creature fighting for justice in the semi-open world of Gloom.

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

The wait is over: All the hard work is done and Somber is finally available on Steam. Our dimly lit world might seem scary at first – but like most things in life, true beauty is often found beneath the surface. We can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of the many sights and sounds of Gloom.” – David Söderström (Lead Developer, You Will Get There)

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.

Somber is now available on Steam for only $7.99.

I've been an avid gamer since I stumbled upon ZORK running in my local Radio Shack in 1980. Ten years later I was working for Sierra Online. Since then I've owned nearly every game system and most of the games to go with them. Not sure if 40+ years of gaming qualifies me to write reviews, but I do it anyway.
