End Of The Beginning: Nebulous Hero's Ace... Tutorial?

Nothing to see here.

Nebulous Hero is one of the Molyjam games I actually had the pleasure of sharing a building with. Granted, this building also contained hundreds of other developers grinding their bones and brains to make bread for the collective Molyjam table, so I sadly never had the chance to take it for a test drive. During the end-of-show presentation, though, it may very well have been the coolest thing I saw. In short, the tutorial comes after the credits. So you start off by playing a traditional hop ‘n’ bop platformer, and then… well, let’s just say it’s not. It’s really, really not. I don’t want to spoil it, but – for those of you without the time or means to experience this bite-sized piece of brilliance – I’ve posted a screenshot that sums it up after the break.

I LIED THERE WAS PLENTY TO SEE THERE.

And it gets even better from there. That, you see, is only the first¬†tutorial. By the end, well, it could scarcely even be considered the same genre anymore. Basically, it’s silly, silly brilliance, which is¬†unsurprisingly my favorite kind. Try it out, and – even if you skipped straight to my screenshot – make sure to go wide-eyed with shame and shout “What have I done?” after your first playthrough. Why did you destroy the things you loved and turn them into tiny, adorably sad ghosts? What’s wrong with you?

Thanks, Free Indie Games.
