I really like this game for reasons I can't really mention without going into spoilers. I see The Void as a work of art that makes good use of the medium strengths, but because of it's unforgiving and cryptic nature will forever remain a niche title. 

A word of advice: Save often, practice the glyphs and don't believe everything you hear.

Recommended if you can get past the tough difficulty curve (and the fact that the difficulty curve involves figuring out what youre even meant to be doing)

This is like a weird german expressionist film. It's very artsy, and obscure.

Personally it didn't click with me. I found it frustrating and tiring to constantly try and understand what the hell's going on.

 

The easiest way to escape the void is to exit the game.

The Void is a perfect execution of what its going for.  Unfortunately, what it's going for is making you feel sad and tired. 

If you want some high quality despair, this game has you covered, but I had to give up on it when I realized the game had tricked me into trapping myself in a no win scenario (like a sierra game except not pointlessly dickish).  I think it's an excellently designed game, but I don't think I can recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely fantastic visuals though, Ice Pick Lodge are a treasure.
