Combining pixel art, puzzle platforming and a ton of adventure, Full Void on Xbox and Nintendo Switch welcomes you in to a new dystopian future.
Available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch – with a previous PC release in hand too – is Full Void from OutOfTheBit. A pixel-arted cinematic affair, much of the focus of Full Void is on that of the puzzle platforming and adventures that can be had.
It thrusts players into a future is on the verge of collapse. You play as a young teenager who finds themselves stuck in this hostile world. A world run by the most rogue of AI. As you’d expect to hear, from there, tests will be chucked your way. It’s the puzzles which will mostly delight. But equally as stunning look to be the visuals. Full Void on Xbox and Switch certainly shines in those terms.
OutOfTheBit are on it with Full Void
For us, the biggest selling point is that OutOfTheBit are pushing Oddworld vibes. Throw in some Prince of Persia inspiration and they seem to be on track to provide a superb gaming experience. When you consider that each and every scene has been hand-drawn and custom built, then that excitement builds ever more.
After making fun arcade games such as Super Arcade Football and Super Arcade Racing, we really wanted to explore the puzzle platformer genre. With Full Void we wanted to tell a story and also convey a feeling to the player. It’s the feeling of helplessness and isolation many of us felt during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, and we tell this entire story without the use of words, except for a line of text on the very last screen of the game. The artistic value of Full Void was recognised by the recent double nomination to the Indie Cup UK ‘23 in the categories “Rising Star” and “Critics’ choice”. We’re humbled to be included in a lineup of such great games. It gives us confidence that we are on the right track!” – Ali Motisi, Lead Developer, Founder and Director of OutOfTheBit.
“Each screen in Full Void could be considered a painting. Composition, light and every single element were polished to the smallest detail” – Miles Atkinson – Pixel Artist & Leonardo Halwart – Graphic Designer.
