I come here to try and raise a bit of awareness to a game called The Void, by Ice-Pick Lodge, creators of the acclaimed if not underrated and a bit unknown game, Pathologic.
The game is set to release in Europe on the 25th of September by newly created publisher Mamba games.
So, to expand a bit more on The Void and to prevent this thread to become nothing more than a shameless plug, What is The Void?
The Void is a game release in Russia and other CIS countries in 2008, where it won several Russian game awards and sat in a Russian museum for art. The Void already saw a release in Poland and Germany and a re-release in Russia.
Following the same creative path as Pathologic, The Void sets itself as a surreal work of art doubling as a game.
The premise of the game is that you are dead and end up in some kind of purgatory. From there your only resource is colour. Colour is your life, colour is death, colour is your voice, colour is your weapon. With that you must dominate the Brother that inhabit the The Void and conquer the Sisters that also live there using the colour you gather and using it to draw glyphs corresponding to your actions.
