Acerca deste jogo

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.

Great game for those who are not looking for action. It's challenging and makes you keep playing forever.

So I bought this game while it was on a ridiculous sale all excited after reading the reviews. It has an interesting atmosphere and concept but other than that I found the "action" parts and puzzles to be boring up to the point where I don't want to have The Void in my Library anymore. Great concept, poorly executed. One of the games I'll play when there's literally nothing else available and when I'll feel like wasting time to get used to weird controls.

Cant even start the game. Using windows 8.1. Read forums it says: replace the configs, change the path folders, change resolution, uninstall physX, uninstall AVG, reinstall drivers, and lots of other stuff. Did most of it but I dont understand why I have do all this just to play a game that I BOUGHT. Waste of time, too bad was looking forward to play this. So unless you wanna spend 5 hours reconfiguring your computer I would not buy this game.

One night in late summer, I found myself stranded without a ride in what I imagine to be the south end of Soho. I imagine this is where I was because I am not exactly sure, if I ever was, and the longer it has been since that night, the less sure I become. Nonetheless, on this particular night I had done a massive amount of what I assume to be cocaine, as I have always been partial to the uppers, and I am not particularly fond of the feeling of fake congeniality imparted by the club drugs that every tween seems to be so fond of these days. On that particular night, I was standing outside, and it had been raining rather heavily for quite some time, and I presume I was soaked clear through my clothes to the bone, although I do not remember the sensation of either being soaked or having bones, but I assume that I at least had the latter or else I would not have been standing outside in the rain to become soaked in the first place. As I was standing outside in the rain thinking to myself that I could sure use an umbrella right now, a vision of heaven entered my periphery. It was an umbrella, and it was held by the ugliest woman I had ever seen, in Soho or otherwise. But beggars cannot be choosers, and I was certainly squarely in the category of beggars at this particular place and time. I asked the poor wretch if I might share the umbrella with her, and she obliged, on the condition that I walk her to her residence, and upon arrival at our destination, I give her a kiss. As I said before, not being a fan of the lascivious drugs of youth, I was not interested in such romantic endeavors, but it was still coming down like God had just finished happy hour, and I did not have anything left to do that evening, that I was aware of, so I thought I would see where the night would take me.

The sights and sounds of Soho were overwhelming in my presently intoxicated state, and the more we walked, the more interesting my companion became. I started to listen to her, and I started to see her for who she really was, and not just for her, admittedly terrifying, exterior. I also enjoyed the way that people would go out of their way to walk around us when they saw us coming down the sidewalk, presumably frightened off by my compatriot's ghastly visage. Unfortunately, as amusing as all of this was in my drug-addled state, it was getting later, or perhaps earlier, as the sun seemed to have been coming up or just going down, and I was really in no position to say, given my current state, and we were moving into a strange place where the ground seemed devoid of covering and the trees devoid of leaves. The cement seemed to have all but disappeared at this point, and the only remaining facet of the civilization from which we had departed were oppressive wrought-iron fences that looked to be decades, if not centuries, old.

As I was about to turn and ask my new acquaintance how much further it was to her residence, she advised me that we had arrived. Her home appeared to be more a gargantuan tomb than any sort of abode I had ever encountered, but in my present state I was not really in the mood to question, and I did not particularly care where she lived, not even knowing her name at this point, and besides, there appeared to be some other rather grotesque individuals milling about, and I would really rather just leave than start suggesting real estate options to her. Since we had reached her dwelling, it was time for me to depart, but not before, she reminded me, my bestowing of a kiss upon what I can only assume she referred to as her face, as I saw no other part of her form that could pass as such, even being that the thing that was no doubt her face barely did. As I leaned in to give her a kiss, my hand brushed against the front of her slacks, and I felt a distinct, familiar bulge. It was at that moment that I realized that she was he, and this is exactly what playing The Void was like.

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.

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.

There was a woman who loved you before you killed yourself.

You walk through the furnished apartment in the middle of a black hole. Listen to the sounds of life and laughter you'll never see on the other side of dirty wallpaper and doors that are sealed shut. Find the wedding dress she never wore displayed reverently on a mannequin covered in dust, framed by an empty and forgotten room overlooking a beautiful city that no one ever lived in. Find that woman, down here in the center of the emptiness that drove you to suicide, only to find it wasn't ever empty at all. She was there.

And because of you she always will be; trapped in the broken dream of your life together.

Find her, and apologize. Give her everything that matters to you and set her free.

Whether this is what actually happened or not, I don't have a clue. But this is the story just one of the levels told me in the ten minutes I spent exploring it. It never said a word.

Screw the gameplay. Cheat. Find console commands like I did and give yourself all the Color you could want. One-shot the "Tortured Souls" bosses. Free the girls. Watch the weirdly-placed and questionably-necessary strip-tease. Skip the impenetrable poetry and exposition. It doesn't matter.

Just walk through this place, and see what kind of stories it tells you.

If you like the way Dark Souls told its story--through the world and not the dialogue--pick this up. You won't regret it.

An unclassifiable piece of art video game. Unique in so many ways, from art style to gameplay. Frustrating and enthralling. Atmospheric and unforgiving. Thought-provoking and downright weird. One that you may love or hate but will not easily forget.

How am I supposed to recommend The Void? In writing about videogames, we simply do not have the right vocabulary to do that. I can merely offer these fragments, shored against its striking ruins:

I. You cannot hope to win the game. You can only survive.

II. The Void is a computer simulation of a highly complex system which you will not understand. From the first moments, you are required to manipulate its many variables, all obscured by very peculiar terms and tangled in a complex web of relationships. Helping the system is hurting it. Everything has consequences. You cannot know what they are. What you are doing is probably wrong.

III. Everyone is lying. Particularly when they say that everyone is lying.

IV. The videogame known as The Void is art. Unashamedly and gleefully art. The whole thing may be an extremely elaborate sexual metaphor. It may be the dark vision of an uncaring afterlife. It may be both. How many poems have you played lately?

V. There is rather a lot of naked ladies in it.

VI. It pleases me greatly to see the old surrealist sensibilities alive and thriving in a new medium. The visuals are bold and fascinating in their crumbling beauty. Erudite, yet still its own.

VII. You try writing about this without sounding pretentious.

VIII. The difficulty might be a bit extreme. I played it with the medium difficulty patch and had my hands quite full.

IX. Ice-Pick Lodge’s use of interlocking systems to tell a story is truly fascinating and pioneering work. Here is a linear game that everyone will experience completely differently. There is no crude illusion of choice and consequence; everything is consequence.

X. In conclusion, I can recommend this videogame product to everyone.

The Void is the most original game you will play. Within minutes of playing you will realize this game is unlike any you have played before. The level design is great. Soundtrack is great. Voice acting is great. Graphics aren't bad. The only bad thing i would have to say about this game is that it does require a lot of farming, which could get annoying sometimes. Its also pretty difficult and you may find yourself restarting the game a few times in the beginning or going back to an old save file. SAVE OFTEN. However there are quite a few difficulty mods out there to make the game easier as well as some console command cheats to avoid farming if you find yourself getting annoyed by it. Having said all that, this is definitely a game you should pick up. It's a truly unique experience.

I wonder how many drugs the devs were on while making this.
It's atmospheric and creepy. The story is unique and interesting. I wouldn't recommend it to those without an open mind to weird things, though.

One of the best dating/coloring books simulators of all time. Some features include:
1) Scribbling on women until they have to change their clothing
2) Growing your own crayons
3) Scribbling over small childrens' bad drawings-come-to-life until they cease to exist
4) Feeling helpless as your cruel older brothers steal your crayons and critisize your art
If a combination of Animal Crossing and Amnesia: the Dark Descent sounds like a great game, than this is the game for you. The Void does a great job of capturing the sense of urgency to escape from one's nieghbors that both Animal Crossing and Amnesia: the Dark Descent are famous for, but sadly comes across as weird in all the wrong ways.

eH, no, This game is wierd, and its creative and original, and i like that. But its SOO SLOW and SOO DAMN HARD, i dont know about anyone else but i never have enough color to put in my heart thing to do anything, i pick up all the damn glowing plants but i cant to jack ♥♥♥♥ because its not enough. ITs taken me two hours to complete about 25 minutes of gameplay. Ican see why people would like it, it looks great, the story seems cool and it has a cool concept, but they had to make it impossible. And you move at the speed of potato
