About

The Void is a game about supernatural adventures in a grotesque world. The game was also released under the names Turgor (the original Russian title) and Tension.

Plot

The main protagonist of the story is dead. His soul is trapped in the Void, a world beyond life and death that serves as a sort of Purgatory. Two factions inhabit the Void: the monstrous Brothers and the lovely Sisters. They live in the world almost devoid of color. The Color exists in this world as a liquefied substance that is very valuable. The protagonist wants to leave the Void and return to the world of the living. To achieve it, he has to infiltrate the faction of Brothers that consist of deformed, disabled men. Whether they will be hostile or friendly depends on the player's actions.

Gameplay

The player navigates the main character from the first person view. The main goal is to gather Color, which in The Void stands in for all traditional types for video games resources. The protagonist needs Color to restore health, recharge weapons, and increase experience. To obtain Color, the player has to gather Lymph and then process it through the many hearts of the protagonist. As the Color fills the hearts, it influences gameplay in various ways, including the character's interactions with the NPCs.

Style

Like most of the Ice-Pick Lodge games, The Void features a grotesque and surreal visual style. It is set in a gloomy grey world full of fog, ruins, and deformed creatures. The Void is set to the dark ambient music.

        Sick ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Had something like "The Path" but against this Piece of Software "The Path" is a logical Casual Game. Maybe later the Game excites me, but at the moment I can only advise against it.

        If you look very Closely, you can even see a Nipple once and then;) I once borrowed the Game from someone on DVD-ROM and had German Language output in the Menu and Audio Settings. Should you definitely expand the Steel Version With it. Edit February 8, 2018: After 4 Years the Game is reinstalled. In The meantime, the German Voiceover was added.

        It unbelievable ... I go so far as to say that this Game with its Depth has changed my Life a Bit. A unique Atmosphere and an exuberant Spectacle of Life and Death. You need Frabe ... You use the Paint, or it you? Pray the Void and get to know life, a World full of Death and Color and even your one-on-one think anew. Who on Skurieles ... Exceptional and an unbleborn Psychotrip stands here with an umbrella further on a poignant Experience.

        If you like a Game with a harmonious atmosphere and a slight morbidity, you're in the right place at The Void. Here, beautifully worked with Light and shady as well as good Music for the coherent underpainting. The Characters you meet i are all well worked out and have beautiful individual personalities. Disadvantage of this Game should get 3 Levels of difficulty: Simple, medium and heavy. They have ultimately remained at difficult. So If you want to play through the game without getting a patch, you have to come clean with a lot of try and error or get a good guid. On the other hand, the game offers such a real challenge in terms of managing its Resources. Conclusion: It is a timeless game for all those who stand on Games with atmosphere and a beautiful background story

        For People who want to play something different. Without wanting to reveal too much about the Game: Plot: 6/10 You play a Kind of Ghost in a bizarre World that has the apt name "The Void"-which wears blank. Here live the beautiful "Sisters," which are guarded by the cruel and grotesque "Brothers." Your Goal: Survive this Madness! Gameplay: 6.5/10 Your Weapon is the Color in this Game. Each Color has its own Characteristics. With her, you defend yourself against the Dangers of Emptiness. However, it doesn't just grow on Trees like that (or does it?) and you have to grow and harvest them. Yet there are some who do not tolerate your Influence on Emptiness ... The Game also has some Boss fights ... These are unfortunately really bad Visual:-/-outdated, but fine. Just Check out some Screenshots. Waifus ... waifus everywhere!
