Void Terrarium is tough, and it can be unforgiving with a lot of different systems to keep track of. But it's always a satisfying experience. It's not the greatest roguelike/Mystery Dungeon title I've played, but it might just have the most rewarding gameplay loop I've seen in the genre.

A simple but solid roguelike, mixed with Tamagotchi systems.

As someone who loved A Rose in the Twilight and the whimsical art style found in both of these games, Void Terrarium is a hard sell. At its core, you have an okay roguelike that is bogged down by countless mechanics and things to pay attention to. Fight a monster, heal yourself, replenish your energy, clean up Toriko's poop, obtain food, drop something for a blueprint, and then rush home because she is about to starve to death. It's a lot to take in and as a result, falls short of simpler and less management heavy experiences.

While it would be nice to see Toriko as more of a character, everything else in Void Terrarium is bursting with charm.

The gameplay mix intrigues, but it's weighed down by overemphasis on all too familiar rogue-lite tropes. I want to love Void Terrarium, but fine ingredients don't always make for a satisfying dish if they aren't balanced well. This game is too heavy-handed on tedium, and progress coming from random chance rather than skill.

void tRrLM () - // Void Terrarium does a good job of bringing to the table the core elements of a good dungeon crawler, but lacks something new and fresh to keep itself apart from other titles.

void tRrLM();//Void Terrarium delivers a very interesting experience with elements of a genre rarely seen nowadays, with a very competently, well done and immersive ambiance, even if its clear technical limitations and the weakness of its plot limit its success.

From the gentle subversion of the nature of progress in roguelikes, to the razor-focus on a sweet, paternal-style relationship between a robot and his ward, told with minimalistic elegance, Void Terrarium is a mature, different, and interesting take on the genre.

There's a lot to love about Void Terrarium, with its touching story and unique approach to the mystery dungeon genre, even if does occasionally frustrate.

Mystery Dungeon titles are popular, but this one sadly offers a weak example of mechanics in comparison to the broader genre. From there, being able to go full Tamagotchi with a girl in a glass bottle was intriguing and kept pushing me through the tedious and difficult dungeon crawling. A powerful story, moody soundtrack, and amazing aesthetic round out an experience that has a solid support structure, but less than awesome baseline gameplay premise.
