Description

Nil's Labyrinth is a labyrinth puzzle game with elements of action and adventure. You play as Nil, a cat tormented by utter and complete boredom who begins an introspective journey through the mysterious labyrinth of his mind in search for a solution. Guiding Nil in this adventure requires solving challenging puzzles, avoiding dangerous traps, escaping from strange sleepy creatures and discovering the many secrets that lie buried deep in his feline psyche.

History

Nil's Labyrinth is Cookie Pixel's first title. It started in 2014 as an experiment on the mechanics of 2D scrolling games applied to labyrinths, then evolved to the idea of a maze crawling game mixed with elements of action and adventure. The full-featured game started to take shape after the foundation of Cookie Pixel in July 2016 and took nine months to be completed. Nil's Labyrinth is a game about exploration and discovering, inspired by classic games such as Atari 2600's Adventure, Pac-Man, Dungeon Master and even games of otherwise unrelated genres such as the platformer Commander Keen with its many secret places and switch puzzles. With over 100 puzzle-filled mazes and up to 500 secrets (including secret levels, secret items, secret rooms and passageways), Nil's Labyrinth is both an homage to these classic games and a personal revisit to the developers' favorites gameplay mechanics.
