A downloadable Game Jam Entry for Windows

Designed for the "A Game by it's cover" game jam, void is a endless bullet hell with monstrous bosses and (of course) lots of things to dodge on screen. Use your weapons to maneuver and to kill enemies to rack up combos, as well as gain a new high score!


May work on this more if there is interest, although if you really like this game, go play downwell. It's much more polished.

Whoa, this is kind of amazing! I have to admit, it took me a while to figure out what even to do. I was kind of wandering back and forth, shooting stuff...then I started shooting myself upward and it was like "Oh...OHHHHH OKAY". Then it got pretty crazy, in a good way. It plays smooth, the animation is great; the white-red pixel-y graphics are pretty cool. I liked how each of the weapons felt different. The boss was pretty impressive too!

One thing that kinda bothered me is that when you die, it's not even obvious. I mean, I understand wanting to get right back to the action, that's great. However, there was this confusing moment of "What happened? Where did I go? Did I die? Do I even have health?". Just something to telegraph what happened, like a special sound, or something. Also, something kinda weird happened; I was fighting the boss, and I died (I think), and suddenly it got into this state where the boss was pushed up to the top of the screen, and I was stuck right above it. I didn't lose health, but all I could do was keep shooting, and this eventually defeated the boss. Odd.

Still though, those are minor problems for an impressive effort!

Hello! I really enjoyed your game, it was very fun to play and had a cool design to it. I would suggest maybe adding a different boss just to mix it up but other than that it was great! I made a let's play of your game here-

Thank you! Most of my team thought so by the end as well. Please let me know if we should add to it!

I think a bit of context might be nice. I was a little confused by the spacey menu screen and then being a dude with a gun in a hole.

Oh, lol. I actually did the main menu just to prove I could make something cool graphically with code. Didn't really think of context, but might try and come up with some. That kind you for the feedback!
