When one gives up living and using his soul, he can’t only lose
the soul but can also devote it to death…
Before souls completely die they stick in The Void – an odd space
between life and death. There is an outside chance to survive
in The Void and even to come back from it. This chance is
The Color – the only food of a dying soul wandering through
the mournful realms of The Void, governed by monstrous Brothers
and malicious Sisters, who are desperately struggling for the
last drops of it. The Color is not only the sense of life of these
mysterious creatures but also gives power and vital force to the
whole Void. The Color gives you power to do almost everything
even to get out of death clutches if you gain enough Color, but
there is a great lack of it in the arid deserts of The Void. There is
Color only for one.
Be the one, get your lost soul back!
  • The Color is the only resource in the game: it acts as the health,
    inventory, skills and perks system, armory.
  • All in-game actions are realized through drawing. You literally
    need to draw your way with your own blood.
  • Each Color can cause both harm and good. A player gets various
    advantages from getting any of The Colors, but when he draws
    with it he feeds the enemy forces of the world.
  • Fight with golems, bloodthirsty predators and other spawns
    of The Void.

The Void reminds me of Star Control 2, which is one of my favorite childhood games. It is one of the more unique games I have played in quite some time. It is a fairly long and complex game that doesn't explain anything until hours in. Therefore you may need to start over mid way through because of your actions.

You are introduced as a lost soul who was dragged to a world that is nearly barren of life. Your goal is to escape The Void, which can be done in different ways. There is a set timeline and where different factions will seek to convert you to their cause. Be warned that there is a LOT of female 3d nudity but no genitals or sex.

The game revolves around a limited resource known as "Color" in order to survive and accomplish tasks. Color is extracted by collecting flowers, planting and harvesting trees, mining rocks, catching critters, and defeating some enemies. It is initially harvested as a health that is temporarily used to boost stats. Over time it is converted into mana that is used for casting spells. The game hides a lot of information about the use of Color until late in the game. Therefore, it may be helpful to know that casting too many spells in the same area will cause problems for you and determines what endings are available to you.

This is easily one of the most player-unfriendly games I have ever encountered. This is basically a resource/adventure game, and you WILL have to restart a couple times after playing a couple hours each time, because the game is purposely vague and unforgiving with resources in the beginning. It is also a game which requires a good amount of micromanagement and reloading. The resource system is fairly complex, so I won't bother trying to explain it (it also SOUNDS really ridiculous).

The environment and storytelling is also confusing, but also compelling. The world is mostly black, grey, and white, and you are in constant search of color, which you require in your body in order to survive. The girls look like alluring goddesses and the guys are grotesque monstrosities, and it creates this really weird environment which is a mix of horror and sort-of-existential "WTF".

It's also a bit buggy, and crashes for no reason every once in a while.

This is not a "fun" game, but it could be worth a look for the environments, storytelling, and resource system. It is HARD though, so if you're easily frustrated stay away.

It seems that you either love this game or you hate it. I hate it. It is very hard. OK, I can cope with hard. Getting the "Pacifist" achievement in Deus Ex: Human Revolution was hard, but I did it and enjoyed every minute. It is weird. OK, I can cope with weird. Alice: Madness Returns is pretty weird and I got my money's worth out of that. So what's the problem? I think the main problem is that it's very, very, very slow. You have to figure out what the Void is going on in order to get anywhere. This requires trial and error. You're given some hints by NPCs, but some of these hints point you in the wrong direction and you have to unlearn them. Which often means giving up and going back to a saved game. And then, covering the same ground again and getting it right just ... drags. In frustration, I looked up what appears to be an authoratative guide, citing information from the game's developers. Following this meticulously for three hours, I appear to be in an impossible situation only 10% of the way into the game and I'll have to start again. Why? What happens is apparently to some degree random, not enough green color appeared and now I'm toast. Do I want to re-play three hours knowing that once again the outcome will be partially random. Hell, no. I think I'll go back to Portal 2 and see what's going on with the Perpetual Testing Initiative. Money wasted. Fortunately, not much ($0.99).

This is one of the strangest games I've ever played and I absolutely loved it.
Other reviews have mentioned the severe difficulty and the need to restart after hours of play and they're entirely correct. This is, at heart, a resource management game with bizarre, unintuitive mechanics and there is zero hand-holding. You will be confused (but also intrigued) from the start of the game to the very end. If you're quick to anger and frustration this may not be the game for you.
If you're patient, however, you'll find one of the most creative and stylized games you'll ever play. The artistic direction is stellar and (though perhaps more style than substance) the atmosphere alone is worth the price of admission.
Be warned that the "story" is vague, dream-like, and never fully fleshed out. Nevertheless, the developers manage to imbue an impressive amount of personality in the characters despite lines of dialogue that are sparse and cryptic as can be.
You should also be aware that there is an excessive amount of nudity in the game. I initially thought this may be a cheap ploy for attention but I'm now quite convinced it was an artistic decision. It contributed surprisingly well to the otherworldly, surreal atmosphere and is never remotely sexualized or graphic. It should be fine for mature players.
Overall, if you're a patient player with an eye for style and an appreciation for some genuine originiality this game is worth every penny.
