Great game, could you export a rom file from gb studio so I can play it on m gameboy please?
Soul Void is a short, 1-2 hour experience made as a proof of concept to test out GB Studio. It's a pretty easy, straight-forward game. Please enjoy :)
- Arrow Keys / WASD to move
- Z / J to interact.
(If you ever find yourself stuck, I've written a guide here that will hopefully be of use!)
NOTE: Due to my own technical limitations, Soul Void does not have any music. Please feel free to put on your favorite lo-fi chill ambient noises to get spooky to, or really whatever floats your boat.
- There may be a slight audio pop when starting the game/switching tabs.
- When talking to NPCs, there's a very rare chance that free-roaming actors may break their boundaries and wander off screen. Let them be free; they'll come back with a scene change.
- Due to positioning, NPCs might pop over the dialogue box. They won't impede your ability to read however; they just want a little extra attention.
- Dialogue Box Bug 10/18/19 -- Unfortunately, months later, I still haven't been able to replicate the yes/no glitch on my end, nor have found a common causality between those experiencing it / any reason why it's happening within the game's code. At this point in time, I can only suggest closing the game and refreshing the itchio page, or trying a different browser (both of which are less than ideal solutions, I understand wholeheartedly). Though this seems to have only affected a small portion of players, I apologize sincerely to anyone who's experienced the interruption in their gameplay.

I fell in love with the art style and had to tell my other friends about it, the story was simple and beautiful, and I love how it told me where to go, it was addicting as well, and I was finding it difficult to sleep without knowing the ending. 10/1o would recommend
I loved the game, it took me forever to play which kept me occupied, however didn't manage to finish it because I couldn't find my way back to town! But I really liked it, I spent almost 2 hours playing it
This was such a great game! I really loved the message and playing this made me feel a little less lonely. Thanks <3
I'm really glad that I stumbled on this game. The art is gorgeous, and the writing is really on-point. I might be alone in this, but I really found Soul Void to be spooky rather than all-out scary. But hey, a really positive message wrapped up in a spooky game is pretty much what I needed right now.
I recorded a little let's play of the game - however, I'd suggest for anyone looking at this comment to just... play the game yourself? It'll take you all of an hour and a half.
I loved it so much, the art and the story are both beautifoul and its so scary and sad and lovely and all that!
It would be great to get a downloadable .gb version to play on real hardware!
Damn! This game was amazing! I've had a lot of these struggles in my life, though I'm in a much better place now, partly because I always try and lift my friends up alongside me, so this game was basically, like, my mission statement of life. Also, I played it while listening to Röyksopp's The Inevitable End, which timed out perfectly with some of the in-game events, just in case anyone's looking for a music tip!
Here's my video on this game. Really bizarre stuff.
this game made me tear up a couple of times, not gonna lie. this game really helped me. what a beautiful game. this game really makes you feel for these people and creatures but also makes you look at yourself THROUGH the characters in this game. i relate so much to the husk, i teared up multiple times reading his scribbles because of how much i understood. seeing the ending really felt like i was seeing myself in a game, seeing her open the door hesitantly- yeah. this game hit a part of me i didnt know games could, i cant thank the author enough. 1000/10 <3
I had a really great experience in this game and hopefully will also do my own gb studio creation.
Wonderful game. I loved the story and the spritework. It really had an impact on me, especially with the artist NPC.
The artwork in this game is outstanding.
This is a masterpiece! The artwork is beautiful, the story is important, and everything is relatable, easily my favorite game. It kind of feels like Pokemon Blue, if you were a lost soul exploring a beautiful world. Keep going, and be authentic to yourself!

I just finished playing through this game, and i love it so much! the art and color palette is gorgeous, and the way you represented anxiety, depression, etc. was really relatable, especially the Husk and their creative struggle (as an artist myself). I also got pretty attached to the Seeker and learning how he died tugged at some heartstrings ;-;. I'll definitely play through this again (and maybe try helping all the characters i can)! Thank you so much for this amazing experience <33
amazing the art is so cool and beautiful and loved the characters this was so sweet and it really gave me the feels at times so worth playing
Absolutely beautiful game, exactly what I was looking for! The art-style is somehow creepy and enduring at the same time, I really really loved it. Keep up the good work!
Beautiful game with beautiful artwork. I'm someone who struggles with chronic depression and can only function with medication because i'm not neurotypical, so I really appreciate this. I'd love a long LoZ-depth type version.
This was soo deeeeeeeeeeep. I got immersed and completed without going to the restroom... lol.
The artwork and story was superb!
The game flow was nice, and I never felt stuck.
dude this game was soo deep and dark. i absolutely loved it!
I believe I asked a bit back but has anyone found any good music for this to use in YouTube videos. I've found it hard to find any music that is suitable for this game. I would really appreciate some help :)
Is this playable on original hardware? If so how can I obtain it?
profound and emotional, i loved it. thank u for sharing
its been a while since i replayed this and i still fucking love it!! something to note though, is that the teethstalk when i tried to go back after cutting the arteries, with bees in hand, wouldn't let me go back to the teeth portion of the void, just kept sending me back into the guts which to my knowledge of the last time i played isn't supposed to happen since i'm supposed to be able to go back and give the teeth dude the bees, though i dunno how common this is. it didn't impede my progress too much, frankly, just something to be aware of!
omg. this is just amazing, i love the thought that has gone into this game and the art. thank you very much for making this game. <3<3<3
This was a very nice experience. I ended up really caring about all the weird little characters I met and managed to find all of the exhibits in the museum except the last screen character. Not sure what I missed there. Gonna have to come back for that one. I hope you'll make a downloadable version of this eventually so I can add it to my collection of games to play offline, but for now I'll keep this page bookmarked so I can play it again later.
i have so many words and so many feelings going through me right now but the most i can say right now is: thank you. please keep doing you, this was inspirational as hell and an absolute dream to play. thank you thank you thank you for giving us this beyond amazing experience
any recommended free to use lo-fi music to use if making videos on this game ?
This game is brilliant in every possible way. The section with the Husk artist really go to me and was wonderfully written. I absolutely love this game!
I just created an account to comment on your amazing work. 2-ish hours incredibly well spent. Can't believe all the emotions I've been through during gameplay. Thank you very much for your effort!
i love this!!
especially the snarky trash cans :D :D
This game was awesome to play!! Your art is incredible! Whether you keep working on this game or move on to other ventures I humbly request that you keep making!! Your stuff is great!
hoi! I wanna try this game out but when I try to "run game" it loads & just says "please rotate 🔁" ?
do you play on cellphone?
this game is incredible, the art and creepy aesthetic is truly beautiful. i love the messages of fighting through self doubt and depression in the game. excellent job!!
Is it possible to play on a cellphone?( samsung galaxy j7 prime, to be specific), when i try it says to rotate, but the screm does it automatically whem i tap to run, and also, nothing happens when i rotate the phone, even though the screen flips.
This looks so nice, you make the art yourself?
This was so, so good. All the aesthetic of the surreal, lost place in between was exactly my cup of tea, and this was beautiful to play through!
loved it. Was totally enthralled with it. The art is fantastic. Great job!!!
