Darkness looms over a bright and peaceful town as street lights begin to go out one by one. To bring back the light, a girl heads to the Tower from which the light came. Hidden in the Tower was a glowing butterfly. Thinking its light could help the town, the girl takes the butterfly with her. ...But what she found was the town entirely covered in darkness. The girl heads to the Tower once again to find a way to save the town. With the light gone, the Tower turned into a place full of lethal traps and monsters lurking in the dark. Venture forth with the glowing butterfly. It is up to you to drive out the dark and save the townspeople!

Nevaeh Critic Reviews

Nevaeh is easy-playing stuff. It takes familiar, comfortable genre conventions and splices them together in a way that is imminently playable. With such a strong, compelling art style it would have been nice to see the developers push the artistry a little further, either to subvert or confirm the fairytale themes in a compelling way, but you're not going to regret your time playing this one. Not by a long shot.

Short yet engaging, Nevaeh creates quite the mystery by omitting any narration, which occasionally can be confusing when trying to work out what's going on, particularly when helping townspeople with their individual requests, and figuring out the finale. Shadows are a strong element here for both puzzle-solving and boss battles. There's a range of power-ups that can be chosen once enough of an item is collected, and these can extend how long the butterfly stays activated or improve the girl's defences. Replaying may help better understand the story, and there is a harder setting to use, but there is no obvious benefit or incentive to do so. That aside, overall Nevaeh is a sound game to test the mind and imagination.

Nevaeh's challenge relies on your ability to consistently think outside the box and its resulting gameplay is impressively rewarding.

Nevaeh is a fast and fun puzzle platformer that doesn’t bite off more than it can chew. However, its lack of direction makes the adventure feel soulless. Nothing challenges the player, not even the boss encounters, making this more of a comfortable and cute indie puzzle experience to play in short bursts.
