Penumbra is a VR walking simulator that tells the story of the main character trying to find their dog after it ran off during the start of a strange eclipse. The player must follow a forest trail while searching for clues that could help find their lost dog. As the player walks deeper into the forest, they'll start to notice the different changes caused by the eclipse.
