Penumbra is an amazing achievement by a small development team with only four main members, although quite a few people have helped out during it’s production. Termed as a horror adventure game, the graphics are actually on par with recent commercial FPS releases.
What’s unique about this particular title is that most of the objects in the game are affected by physics. For example, boxes can be stacked on top of each other to access higher ground. Some puzzles require the manipulation of items in creative ways.
The flashlight battery runs out quickly, but fortunately a glowstick lasts forever. Alternate between both by pressing the F or G key for a little illumination. Game is saved automatically
