Dim: A Light In The Dark – Student Project Game

Dim: A Light In The Dark is a dark and atmospheric Inside-esque 2.5D puzzle platforming adventure where you use burning energy sources to help you traverse a giant mechanical factory.

Created by a group of students from the University of Applied Sciences Europe, Dim: A Light In The Dark sees you taking control of a mysterious robotic being as they make their way into the heart of a giant mechanical factory. The visual style and world design is similar to Inside, but the puzzles all revolve around the burning sources of energy that you can collect and use in different pieces of machinery to activate and deactivate them.

There are a few little rough edges and it can be hard to figure out exactly what you’re meant to be doing occasionally, but on the whole it’s a very well crafted puzzle platforming adventure. It’s got a great sense of atmosphere, challenging puzzles and lots of gorgeous 2.5D environments as you make your way through the strange mechanical world. Highly recommended.
