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.

At its heart, Void Terrarium is a delightful, charming and compelling Tamagotchi-inspired 'keep them alive 'em up.' Sadly these magical moments are coated in so much tedious and overly-difficult combat and exploration bloat that it is exhausting to find them. There's magic hidden deep in this game, just be prepared to grind long and hard to find it.

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.

Being able to raise deep concepts about duty, life and entertainment, makes this stand far above many other games.

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.
