I have purchased this game mostly for the theme it was supposed to be set in.
I have expected dreamlike experience navigating the land of the dead, immersion and chillout.
This game is NOT what it's description says! Read reviews!
What The Void really is:
This game is a puzzle/resource management title, that uses dark, dreamlike setting and rewards you with naked women to give you a reason to progress. Really, expect *fully* nude girls. As such, being only one like it on steam, it is worth grabbing. I recommend getting two user made mods, one to fully undress girls instantly (some are bugged) and other to lower down difficulty as the game is BRUTAL and without this mod you will LOSE!
Confusing to say at best. Very little explanation for your actions, progressing and undresssing girls. Narration tries to explain something, but it is too little.
There is a combat in this game, that requieres you to spend 'limfa' which is also your hitpoints. You die if it reaches zero during travel, so it extremelly dangerous to engage in combat, but it is a must later in game (hence advice to get difficulty mod and set it to easiest).
Puzzles are simple, like growing the trees that give you more 'colour' that you will use to paint (undress) girls. Do pay attention to give as much as possible when painting trees as you can do it only once and adding more results in more yields later. Some more difficult puzzles will however require you to google for answers as the game does not provide you with clues about what to do (or they are too cryptic).
Dreamlike, but somewhat buggy; animations of girls are clunky and there is a lot of clipping; maps are rather small and not really that interesting.
Good voice acting. Repeteative ambient music (is there only one track?). Odd enemies/character sounds.
One thing that has to be punctuated is that game has bosses traveling around the Void and some will attack you on sight (and kill you, most likely, in the beginning). These are very tought fights that are best avoided untill very late.
Game gets repetitive quite soon, and you will have little reason to progress except for seeing more naked boobs - which is quite rewarding, in somewhat weird way.
Get this on sale and support developers. In the world where boobs are censored but brutal violence is praised and exposed, this title is a very nice and unusual game that clearly stands apart from the mainstream.
As such - and for overal polish and care displayed - it is not bad investment of time and money and you might enjoy it.
