Post Void is an absolute delight to play with some of the most satisfying FPS gameplay I’ve experienced in years. While it might only have eleven levels to play through, the outstanding gunplay will keep players engrossed in the hours, days and weeks to come and at £2.33, it’s an unbelievable indie package.
Absolute joy to play. Simple premise anyone can pick up: Run as fast a possible and shoot everything in sight while listening to the fast-paced music that perfectly accompanies the surreal visuals. You die, you start over. The rooms seem to be randomly generated, so starting over doesn’t ever feel like a chore. Definitely the best indie shooter I’ve played in a long while.
In most games, things like frustrating controls and steep difficulty would be big negatives. In Post Void, they contribute to how the experience sits with the player. This is a game about determination in the face of uncaring adversity. There are themes of the brevity of life, the overwhelming violence in society, and how blindly moving forward is the only way to succeed, even if players leave something behind in the process. All this shines through even in play sessions that last thirty seconds or less. Beyond mindless progress or the promise of blood and gore, finding meaning in this chaos is Post Void's most addicting quality. By any definition of the word, that is art, and that's what makes Post Void great.
Post Void, beyond its dizzying hysterical aspect, remains a very addictive retro-FPS experience, simple, clean in concept and effective in execution and which, for the price of a big coffee, will put your skills at risk. , your precision and your concentration while giving you exhilarating sensations
The premise is simple: shoot stuff, run towards the finishing line, and do these as fast as possible, with a meter acting both as a timer, and a health bar. It's simple, yet very effective at getting you immersed and addicted, however, while, the frenzy of Post Void is definitely thrilling, the visual "noise" can get in the way of your score-chasing fun. Some small changes here and there, as well as tiny bit of additional content, could definitely turn this into a much bigger recommendation. Otherworldly fingers crossed...
Post Void will assault your retina’s with flashing lights and colour clashes that’re both hypnotic and headache-inducing. The old school, fast paced shooter action tied to a system which demands you kill, kill, kill are almost impossible not to enjoy but this is a punishing game that’ll need the player to have a lot of patience with the repetition it’ll put them through.
The game is extremely fun and addictive with great replayability and a clear goal in mind but even with this in mind I do wish there was more diversity between runs being more types of upgrades between levels and different weapons. Even so this game is great with out them and is one of the best things you can do with $5 (Australian)
Gritty, raw, and unforgiving. Post Void is a perfect example of art direction and gameplay meeting abrasively (in the best way) to create a unique and whole experience. Better move at a break-neck speed and hit shots with pinpoint accuracy or you'll never reach the end. This was the most fun I've had playing a game in a long time, can't recommend enough.
SummaryPost Void is a hypnotic scramble of early first-person shooter design that values speed above all else. Keep your head full and reach the end; Kill what you can to see it mend; Get the high score or try again.
