What kind of game is it?

Dark Void is a 3rd-person action game that features a mix of on-foot gameplay and jet-pack powered flight.

Who's the developer?

Airtight Games was formed in 2004 by former members of the development studio FASA, who was responsible for the underrated Xbox flight game Crimson Skies. Former Valve developer and Portal figurehead Kim Swift recently joined the studio and is working on a yet-to-be announced project.

What's the story?

Dark Void's plot is fairly straightforward sci-fi. Our hero Will is a pilot who finds himself pulled into a different dimension called “The Void.” Here he uses his flight skills to help a resistance group fend off a looming alien threat. And he shoots stuff.

What's Dark Void Zero?

Dark Void Zero is an 8-bit inspired creation for DsiWare that features 2D gameplay and a complementary prequel story. You can grab it on the DsiWare shop for 500 points.

As awesome as jetpack vs. jetpack multiplayer sounds (Tribes? Red Faction: Guerrilla?), Dark Void is a solo flight.

What'd we say?
