A downloadable game

Welcome to the game "The Void".

Inside this folder is everything you'll need to play.

As well, there is a .doc file which can be filled out and emailed back so it can be collected as helpful criticism.

Thank you for participating and please,

Enjoy the game!


Install instructions

To launch the actual game simply run the .exe or application file 'thevoid'.

The game is played entirely with the mouse. At the top of the screen in game are the various verb buttons (talk, walk, interact, etc...), 
inventory, currently selected item,save/load, quit, and a semi functioning menu. 
The currently selected verb can also be changed by scrolling the mouse wheel.

Due to variations among computers there are a multitude of potential graphical errors.

If when you launch the game it is very small in either windowed or fullscreen, or if the pixels seem blurred or poor quality, try
launching the setup application. Here you can try changing the windowed to fullscreen and the filtering. 

The best filtering setting is by far 'Max nearest-neighbour filter' for this resolution.

P.S.: game was downloaded from this page. When I take a book, in inventar I have three keys.

Thanks for help.

Hey Antik-Sova!

Thanks for pointing that out, I found the glitch you were talking about and uploaded a patch for it.  The newer version should be good to go!

That said, I made this game quite a long time ago, so it's pretty rugged. My newer games, "My Dear Globalist Agenda" and "Absin", are much more polished, and my newest title, "Bittersweet" is the most polished.

Anyways, if you need anything else, let me know, and happy puzzle solving!


Yes, now version is correct. Thanks!

But I still need help: I pick up very small key in room with big bed, but I can't open any door with this key. I think key is for the last closed door (near the window), but this small key doesn't open it.

P.S.: Just in case ask: Game "The hat" automatically quits, when I open the wardrobe in bloody room, is it normal?
P.P.S.: Sorry for grammar mistakes, I know English not ideal.

(1 edit)

'The Hat' closes at the end yeah, that one is done there.

As for the very small key puzzle...

Alright, I had to just double check my memory on this.  I believe the very small key from the bed is used on the desk in the hidden room at the end of the hall. Upstairs on the right there's that discoloured wall? If you cut that open with the knife from the kitchen, you'll find the drawer, which will then lead you on another trail of keys and doors, until you find the safe key, which, if you haven't already found it, is for the safe hidden behind the orange painting in the gallery!

Thanks for your games!

I need help...

When I take the book with symbols. game automatically quits, it's normal?

It this page I see screens (with woman in black clothes), but in game I can't find this scenes.
