Void & Meddler Episode 2 Continues Cyberpunk Oddity

Episode 2 of sleazy posturing cyberpunk adventure game Void & Meddler [official site] launched overnight, and I’m quite keen to get stuck in. Once I finish the first episode, that is. I got a bit stuck, thanks to the wonders of adventure game logic, but it’s a testament to the game that I’ve not given up and told it to toss right off. I do quite like its neon night city of rain, clubs, despair, and dickheads. Read the rest of this entry »

Void & Meddler: Episodic Cyberpunk Adventure Started

I really dug weird, sleazy cyberpunk adventure game Void & Meddler [official site], and was glad to hear that creators Dorian SRed and Trevor Reveur planned to flesh their ideas out in an episodic series. The original demo explored a sinister, sad city full of strange sights like giraffepeople, none of which were explained, and had some great slow and atmospheric moments.

Cyberpunk Adventure Void And Meddler Going Episodic

Pesky meddling kids.

I really enjoyed the surreal cyberpunk world of Void & Meddler [official site] last year. Created in a game jam, it was an adventure game which gave a fine sense of a weird, sprawling world by not explaining any of it. No lengthy exposition about the grubby future, the humanoid animals, our character’s history, or any of that guff – you launch the game and launch into a sinister adventure of murder, illicit substances, cyberdreams, and conspiracy.

I’m delighted to see that creators Dorian SRed and Trevor Reveur (the duo behind also No Wave) have built a team to continue Void & Meddler, and plan an episodic release starting in October.

Mirrorshades On For Void & Meddler

I left my heart at the disco. Now I'm crying on the Metro.

“Oh! Well of course! That explains everything.” Have you ever discovered something unexpected about a game’s makers then seen that game’s quirks as caused by that fact?

I resist those thoughts, as they’re often reductive at best, but had that moment yesterday playing Void & Meddler. It’s a short, free, cyberpunk adventure game made by the folks behind No Wave, a game Adam took a shine to. And as soon as I found out they were French, some lousy part of my head decided Void & Meddler is just so French. Good job, you.
