Curator Review

By Casual Game Reviews June 15

“An ambitious immersive sim roguelike that betrays its more humble origins, but makes for one of the most compulsive plays of the year with debatably the best comic art style (and name!) yet realised.”

Attention spacefarers! Everyone knows that nebula radiation really dries out your skin, but did you also know that’s it is highly mutagenic? Even worse, if your spacecraft is full of mutants, it’s likely also full of dirty, messy junk!

Why not let Tydy clean your vessel? Our bots collect junk and then transport it in our custom Tydy vans to a Tydy Furnace ship where it is incinerated in our safe and environmentally sensitive combustion chambers!

Are you almost dead? Life support system critical? Don’t have the necessary parts to build a Heart Starter and revive yourself? The all new Combustion Chamber has you covered.

Ships equipped with a Combustion Chamber have a furnace passcard stashed somewhere on the ship. Find it, and it’ll give you access to the furnace. Inside is a glorious Heart Starter! Unfortunately for you, looks like someone left the furnace on, so hopefully you’ll have enough health left to wade through a bit of fire first.

SAFETY WARNING: unauthorised use of Tydy devices to generate vacuum effects is illegal and dangerous! Careless use of unsanctioned vacuum devices can cause blood loss and result in extensive damage to robots and other mechanical entities.

WCG staff have informed us that citizens may refer to use of such illicit devices as “getting whacky” and that certain criminal elements may even use extracted blood to “jack up” in preparation for lawless activities. Other “whacky” activities may include extracting slag from robots for resale on the black market.

Tydy cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred by improper use of Tydy equipment!

-The Tydy management team

Get sucking with the Whackuum, your new health-recovery and damage-dealing tool.

The Whackuum syphons enemy health...and gives it to you! The longer you target a single enemy - the faster their health is drained, perfect for wreaking havoc on bulky enemies like Screws. You can even suck the nuts and bolts right out of mechanical foes!

About This Game

Forget everything you know about first-person shooters: Void Bastards asks you to take charge, not just point your gun and fire. Your task is to lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula. You make the decisions: where to go, what to do and who to fight. And then you must carry out that strategy in the face of strange and terrible enemies.

On board derelict spaceships you’ll plan your mission, taking note of the ship layout, what hazards and enemies you might encounter and what terminals and other ship systems you can use to your advantage..

Move carefully through the dangerous ships, searching for supplies and manipulating control systems. React to what you find - will you detour to the generator to bring the power back online or will you fight your way into the security module to disable the ship’s defenses? Choose carefully when to fight, when to run and when just to be a bastard.

Use your hard won supplies to improvise tools and weapons, from the distracting robo-kitty to the horribly unstable clusterflak.

Navigate your tiny escape pod through the vast nebula. Flee from void whales and pirates, and politely avoid the hungry hermits. All the while you must keep scavenging for the food, fuel, and other resources that keep you alive.

Void Bastards features a 12-15 hour campaign that you can complete with an endless supply of prisoners, each with their own unique traits. When one dies, another steps forward to carry on the fight. Don’t worry though, as any crafting progress you’ve made is retained from one to another.
