  • Summary: Very unique atmosphere that will make you want to explore more. This is above all a resources management game, where you will have to constantly anticipate the next step, and so you will have to Save & Load a lot.. There is some actions part but it's not the best feature. The learning curve is really steep, I recommend you read the basic mechanics of the game on one of few guides on the Very unique atmosphere that will make you want to explore more.

  • Summary: You'll scratch your head the whole way through this game thinking "WTF", but it is worth the journey. Although there is gameplay, it is really much more of an artistic experience than a goal-oriented game. It boasts a gesture-based skill system, tons of skill unlocks, intense resource management, a dozen or so unique boss battles (which may not be intense gameplay, but are fascinating You'll scratch your head the whole way through this game thinking "WTF", but it is...

  • Summary: More challenging than fun to get through a few sisters. The mechanics really suck so don't expect any freebies in the void ever!!! Some may call this frustrating and I may never get through the void, but at least it wasn't boring. The story is very interesting. The alien landscape stylized. The npc models are incredibly realistic and deserve applause. Makes you wanna play it over and over More challenging than fun to get through a few sisters.

  • Summary: As people have said the game is quite unforgiving, and it's pretty much impossible to complete it on your 1st try. The worst thing you can do is to keep this from playing because you are going to miss an unique masterpiece. The game is more of a work of art than regular video game like CoD. It's actually not hard at all once you know the mechanics behind game world.

  • Summary: This game has two main factors to consider when reviewing it. One of these you may love, and the other you may hate. Whether you love or hate this game depends largely on what you think of these two things. First, the game can "break" saves. They don't get corrupted or deleted or anything like that, but it's possible to use up all your Color (magic), save, and then get stuck when you This game has two main factors to consider when reviewing it.

  • Summary: The Void is a resource strategy game pretending to be something else, but it is so unique and beautiful that you'll force yourself to play it even after you realize that you're planting "color" and farming trees. By design, you must play the game through several times and deduce the economics of "color".

  • Summary: The Void is a very strange and atmospheric game. It definitely demands patience and careful planning, but in return it lets you explore a surreal purgatory full of haunting scenery and intriguing characters. The metaphor of Color profoundly ties you to the experience. You can literally fill your heart with anger to prepare for a large battle, and the battle will literally leave you The Void is a very strange and atmospheric game.

  • Summary: The game is beautifully atmospheric and very innovative. There's an awful lot I loved about it. I can't give it a good score though because the gameplay was so frustrating that I gave up after a few desperately frustrating evenings in which everything happened excruciatingly slowly. I normally have so much patience it is almost a mental abnormality, but I didn't have enough patience for this.

  • Summary: Come and have a go if you think your hard enough. You will either adore this game, or you will tear it from your computer and smash it with a hammer. You have to be patient and you have to expect the unexpected. Nothing makes sense, it is chaotic and other-worldly, but not understanding it is how you enjoy it. The Void has no time for people who arent willing to take it seriously. Don't Come and have a go if you think your hard enough.

  • Summary: Refreshing in its approach, yes, nerve-wrecking in its approach, a BIG YES. No real explanation of the system, constantly asking of you to balance resources without telling you any details about what kind of balance you should seek and very, very unforgiving of mistakes. I can really recommend this game only to the hardest of hard core adventure? gamers who like it the hard way - Refreshing in its approach, yes, nerve-wrecking in its approach, a BIG YES.
