About This Game

"One step closer to the blur" she thought as she poured herself one last shot of whiskey, for the road. "Sleeping pills and alcohol, perfect cocktail to forget memories you don't even have. How funny.
One last drop, close your eyes. A dreamless sleep, and the hope, the curse of being alive in the morning, with the certitude that everyday is exactly the same.
Shouldn't it be time for me to finally chase the past I gave up a long time ago? What a strange last thought, but it's getting dark, too dark to think... Maybe... Maybe tomorrow will bring more answers..."
She fell in the majestic nothingness of the night while the singer on the old radio player was whispering his quiet prayer: "I'll take the fate the daylight brings".


Fragments and details, rainy nights and blurry lights are all VOID&MEDDLER focuses on. A single night intrusion into Fyn's life and hopes. Tired of the last two years she spent wandering without a goal and without memories, among disenchanted strangers, and pitiless scavengers, Fyn decided to put an end to all of this. She’ll have a few hours to make things right, and seek strong, pure and substantial memories. In a city where genders and species melt into each other, maybe she’ll find the long lost touch of humanity missing from her life.

The idea behind Void & Meddler was to create a game that looks like its creators, two musicians nurtured by noise rock from the 80's, synthwave, road trips and cyberpunk literature. Together, we conjured the narration, we created No Wave, we tamed the weird, we fucked in an orgy of wires, neons and white noise. Distance doesn’t corrupt anything. Amps were set aside for a while, and we dived head first into another sphere we loved, full of code, textures and pixel art.

Enjoy Void & Meddler, an indie adventure game full of fuzz literature, pixel music and analog dreams.

EPISODE 2 AND 3 WILL BE AVAILABLE LATER IN 2016.

If you're a person who likes cyberpunk, you can get into this, but be warned its a short episode and things get confusing (Sometimes).
I liked this game a lot. Although I wished it had more game time for the first episode (I understand that when a game is in episodes most are short) and I felt like I didn't get enough in the first episode. The style is cool, I love the cyberpunk dystopian feel, but my only real somewhat complaint is the dialog. Some of it was really confusing and didn't make sense. Maybe its was a stylistic choice, like you should be confused, but some of the dialog was just straight up werid and awkward. But then again the main character is kind of an awkward person. But besides this, it wouldn't make me want to stop wanting to play episode two and I can't wait till its out.

This game was...definitely not for me. I was attracted by the premise, the art design and music, and the cyberpunk theme. Unfortunately, theres not really much to the game. Its over extremely quickly, despite the really archaic adventure game design that relies on obscure and unintuitive random actions to progress. Nothing particularly made sense at all, and while the dialogue and environments ooze theme, it ultimately comes off feeling like hollow pretension. Its hard to be too upset given the price though. From what I've seen of the game design I'm not terribly interested in the upcoming episodes.

I don't know what it is exactly. The rain, the bright neon, the dark city, the droning music or the delightful ♥♥♥♥♥ for a main character. Maybe it's all of these things. I just know this game is... powerful. Fun or good aren't the right words, though those words aren't wrong. I'm looking forward to more.

I wanted to like it, but I don't. I can see within this, the ambitions for the game it so badly wants to be. Something one can tell based on the dialogues written for the characters. (Some pretty neat stuff, by the way.) The soundtrack is pleasing enough. But overall, this game comes off as pretentious and 'not fun'.

(7.7 hrs on record on my bf's steam acc, so don't let the little playtime fool you.)

I LOVED this (ep.1). So much I bought the whole game plus the soundtrack on Humblestore for myself too. Can't wait for the second episode!!!

*super pretty
*great soundtrack
*very atmospheric and interesting characters (robots, animal/human "merged" people, etc.).
*different way to deal with puzzles that lead to different endings

10/10, would recommend! <3

If you're even slightly interested in any kind of cyberpunk stuff, buy this game! The atmosphere is a blast, the jokes are refreshing and the music keeps pounding. What else do you need really?

The graphics and puzzles are cyberpwesome, and it works well with older hardware. I'm going to play it again and see what's up with the alternative paths.

Well, I got a game on steam, it was a cyberpunk adventure game with a female protagonist that had a premise about messing with memories, by this point I felt like I'd heard this one before. Twenty minutes later, I'd bullied a nerd, flirted with a robot, romanced Ewan McGregor and made a guy shoot himself like twelve times, which never stops being funny.

I love Cyberpunk, colourful, asian-american-cross, all sorts of interesting characters and a moderate, sensible quantity of sex and drugs and stuff.

This game follows Fynn, your run of the mill Cyberpunk punk who also happens to be a complete ♥♥♥♥♥, good, too many characters are supposed to be nice and relateable, I personally love playing as jerks. I have enough being nice in my normal life, in video games, I want to be a total jerk to everyone.

As well as relatively engaging (if somewhat unchallenging) puzzles, and a main character that's incredibly well written (to the point where I would click every option on every interactible to hear what she had to say), the game can also be a bit unsettling. The post-sex conversation with this weird woman (or whatever it is for you), all your options are weird symbols, I liked that. The bullying of the nerd was so longlasting that it just makes you feel uncomfortable without feeling too forced. The repeated suicide was super creepy the first few times.

I feel like I'd love to keep talking, but this game needs to be first-hand. Buy it, play it, done.

This is a great game with a compelling storyline, multiple endings, and the characters and fictional universe are well thought-out and presented.
The music brings out the atmosphere, and it's definitely something which I would like to experience again.

To date: completed Episode 1, 3 endings

I was pleasantly surprised by Void & Meddler after some of the middling reviews. There's no question, the puzzle design here is atrocious. The game drops you into the middle of a world that is very familiar if you are a cyberpunk fan, but it's not really clear what your character's motivation is besides getting high, and it's not at all clear where to go or how to do that. Be prepared to slowly and painfully try using everything with everything, to no entertaining result. Fortunately, the game is rescued by its aesthetic. It reminds me a lot of Sinless in that regard, except instead of being a flip screen adventure it's a point and click. Like Sinless, the music is great and the graphics are delightful. Like Sinless, the writing leaves a little to be desired. But the atmosphere is so thick! There are much better adventure games being released these days if you just want a good story, but this game gets a thumbs up from me on the strength of its ambience. If you're not a cyberpunk nut you might want to wait to see if future episodes improve the puzzles and narrative a little bit, but if you are a cyberpunk nut then it pushes all the right buttons.

I really enjoyed Void and Meddler, and I'll get into why at the end of this review, but first I think I should list a few major caveats:

1. This is an adventure game, and it indulges in some of the worst elements of the genre; i.e. the puzzles tend to involve combing over every single screen and interacting with everything in every possible way until something actually happens. It's also obscure enough that there are no walkthroughs online yet, so have fun getting all the achievements! (I managed it with some help from the Steam forums). The game also features multiple ways to progress at points, which can be a little confusing when you're trying to figure out what to do with the items in your inventory, since they're not all actually necessary. (Using different items can lead you to different endings for each of the two "acts" in episode 1; bizarrely, the standard ending of act two is far more counter-intuitive than the "hard" ending).

2. This is episode 1 of a longer story; as such, the ending is pretty abrupt. Actually, the plot in generally is pretty incoherent. I didn't actually have a problem with that, as I'll explain below, but if you go into this one expecting a clear story, you'll likely be disappointed.

So, why did I like this strange, flawed little game so much? Well, the atmosphere is truly fantastic. I'm a big cyberpunk fan, and the visuals and and music here do an incredible job of conveying that classic dark cyberpunk atmosphere (seriously, the soundtrack is AMAZING). The writing sometimes feels like it's trying too hard to be edgy, and sometimes feels like it's been badly translated, but there are also wonderful moments of humor too, and the overall effect is wonderfully hypnotic. It's one of those games that makes you feel like you've really stepped into another world, one where you barely have any idea what's going on, and that fits perfectly with the main character's hazy detachment from reality. I loved existing in this world; I loved playing as Fyn, who is one of those cyberpunk protagonists who's always starving and strung out and lurking around in grimy clubs and working dead-end jobs just to get by. If you're a fan of the genre, Void and Meddler is definitely worth checking out; just be aware of its flaws before you buy.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: October 28, 2015
So I was actually really excited to give Void & Meddler a go as it does look incredibly cool. The pixel art aesthetic does a great job of melding that slightly retro, 80's vision of the future (with its grim streets bathed in a neon glow) with the weird, Naked Lunch story and characters. But... pretty art can only carry a game so far.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lE2nC3_Ak0

You play Fyn, a young woman who has lost her memories and is setting out find out who she really is.

The game plays out like a traditional point-and-click set in this weird dsytopian, cyberpunk world where robot bartenders are serving alcoholic soda, you can buy memories at the corner store and your free to date a frog if you want. And as colorful as that sounds (and the art is) this game is pretty dull.

The writing is quite messy. Yes, you are free explore in a non-linear way but there is nothing really driving the story onwards. The characters all fairly one dimensional and forgettable [no pun intended]. And the main character, Fyn, kind of reminded me of Lisbeth Salander from the Millenium Trilogy of books ...just without her winning personality. Fyn is obviously meant to be quite obnoxious and a hard person to like but there is nothing about her you can even vaguely empathise with. (And honestly after 30 minutes or so I didn't really care if she got her memories back or not.)

This coupled with the fact that the puzzles are relatively straight forward and well signposted and that the full game is being stretched out over several months (in three episodic releases) is leading me to give it the thumbs down.

If you enjoy cyberpunk & neo-noir stories it might be worth checking out. But if you are after a fun point-and-click or an engaging episodic adventure I'd maybe give this one a miss (or at least wait until all 3 parts are out next year).

Void and Meddler: Episode 1 follows the exploits of a hard to like amnesiac. The first thing she does is tell you how she used some guy for the night and then she talks about how she would dispose of his body in the river. She's not even out of her apartment yet and she's already the most callous person that I've seen as a protagonist.

The gameplay consists of a somewhat non-linear point and click playstyle. You venture to various places while talking to different citizens in this cyberpunk city. The major goal is to find items that lead to her recovering her memory, while moving around a world that seems to be completely without inhibitions.

Plus side

+Non-linear adventure
+Nice visual style
+Hotline Miami style soundtrack

Negatives

-Main character is kind of a ♥♥♥♥
-Story is a bunch of dialogue that leads nowhere
-Puzzles only really go one way
-Episode 1 is an hour and 20 minutes long

If you don't mind a main character that speaks like those weird gothic kids in South Park. You might find some love here in Void and Meddler.

Pros
- Gorgeous graphics
- Sweet soundtrack
- Interesting, and very surreal cyberpunk story.
- Multiple ways to solve puzzles and progress to the end of the game.

Cons
- Some of the writing is a little over the top
- The puzzles are a bit obscure at times, like a lot of adventure games I guess.

I'd recommend this game if you're wanting something quiet and peaceful to do. Looking forward to the next episode!

The art, the music, and the way they come together to create a gloomy, oppressive, nihilistic, 'true' cyberpunk atmosphere are fantastic, and I enjoyed checking this episode out for that reason.

I do think the writing is where it mis-steps (not helped by a somewhat artless translation). Although it's ambitious and stylistic in its noirish, eurocomic-esque cynical poetry, It feels teenaged and strained, often not really achieving what it's going for or making much impact beyond the surface.

It would be easier to swallow if it didn't fall prey to the classic problem(s) of classic-style point-and-click adventure games. The solutions feel arbitrary and come down to clicking every option on every thing, with the game's sullen attitude to the player and its world just becoming irksome as it chides you with every attempt you make to progress,

Having said that some of the game's wry responses and the over-the-top degeneracy of the protagonist and world did get a few chuckles out of me. I think there's potential for this to be built upon in later episodes which makes me not want to give up on it yet. And just to emphasize again, the art and music really are fantastic and worth seeing!
