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
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.

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!!!
Hey, would there be a way to make a download version?, i would like to play this on a Portable emulator, (bittboy), if i have one, some day.
Wow this game is really awsome!
The art is beautiful as well uwu
Amazing, thank you for that!
This is a beautiful game. I was completely immersed in a way that I did not expect, and the message resonates with me as well. Thank you for making this.
I did not expect to enjoy this little game as much as I did. As someone who is dealing with anxiety/depression and trying to learn how to cope with my own personal demons, the theme of this game really hit home for me. It's so important to remember to keep on fighting, even when things get bad again and again, and I thought this game portrayed that beautifully. I also loved the design of this game, very creepy and fitting. I really enjoyed this, 5 stars! :)
Love this game and the story that it told!
Hoi! I like the look of this game but can't get it to get past a initial screen saying I need to rotate my screen? It appears compatible with my Motorola but nothing happens even after I rotate my screen....odd. ..
So what could be the reason?
incredibly unbelievably epic. i was enthralled and i loved the writing and themes and art and the lot of it!! i listened to these two for any one looking for music to listen to while playing and i found they fit really really well
I absolutely loved this game. The art style, the atmosphere (despite the lack of music,) the story, all of it is just great in my opinion. Definitely one of the best games I've decided to play lately.
The art style is simply amazing! I cannot stress how impressed I am with this art style. Wish it had sound.
This was a great game I love your art thank you!
this game is extremely epic
I enjoyed this a lot! I hope you keep making games because this one was definitely a winner. I loved being able to wear the Seeker's hat for the second half of the game.
Nice work :) any plans to release the rom? would love to load it on a cart and play on the real gameboy
that was an awesome beautiful game thx for making it
i really gotta say, the artwork for the background of the settings was really cool
this game is incredible, I encourage you to do more with it, or at least release a version with music. The characters are memorable, and the theme of the game is amazingly beautiful. I love it so much.
I really don't know where to start. This game was incredbile. The story, the cool game-boy graphics style. Just needed a little bit of music and it would have been perfect. 9/10
Well done and I hope to see more from you really soon!
I would really like to play this on my Gameboy. Are you planning to release a rom of that? That would be great :-)
I'm looking forward for more games like this!
Got stuck when a moving spider walked into the grid I was walking on possibly on the same frame. Now can't get out and spider won't move as well. I think this was near the end of the game as well.
This game was absolutely incredible! The art was so nice and appealing, and it was really well written. I was very intrigued by the story and characters, and… it addressed a lot of topics (I may have gotten choked up once or twice…) which I and many others have struggled with. It may have been only a few hours long, but I couldn't stop playing once I started. I really hope to see more amazing things from you in the future :) Thank you for making this.
I'm so glad I decided to play this game! At first I wasn't sure what to do but continued and became immersed in it. The game really hit home with the concept of oneself and how to overcome difficulties.
Well... Im sad thats its over but Im so glad I played it! I just found the creator on tumblr a few days ago and saw they had a game. It was amazing! I may have cried once. Beautiful art and storyline! Ill be telling all my friends to play it!
I absolutely fell in love with this game and felt all of the inspirations. I felt so vulnerable yet open to the situation I was in. I felt this character's soul and although the game was short, I loved every minute of it. I was instantly placed and enjoyed it without question. Words of self esteem and art really got to me. I felt ready to move forward.
It's instantly in my top favorites, up there with the skeletons and the non-copyright red and white balls ;3
