There are already a lot of horror video games available out there, but every now and then, something new tries to get above the rest. This time, it's from Steelkrill Studio with its latest offering The Voidness, launching on Steam Early Access March 17.

The game puts players in the role of one space specialist named Francesca Lee. She's been sent to a newly founded planet filled with just gloom and darkness. Francesca has been asked to look into the mysterious void, so like any horror video games, things are never what they seem.

As Francesca, players navigate their way by scanning the environment equipped with their range scanning device, which also needs an upgrade to dodge the dangers within the void. Players can also use scanning turrets to guide them in environments, find upgrades, and mark landmarks, to name a few. It's important to remember that there's also something lurking in the dark and the only way to see it is by scanning.

If you're excited, here are some of the key features of the game:

  • LIDAR scanning environment
    • Scan the environment with the range scanner device to see in the darkness and gloom.
  • Terrifying enemies that listens
    • Try to make past terrifying enemies that listen, which can only be seen by scanning them.
  • Puzzle Solving
    • Find clues, solve puzzles, and try to advance to the next objectives.
  • Microphone Input
    • When in hiding, the enemy can hear your breathing - through your microphone.
  • Upgrades and more
    • Find and upgrade the scanner to scan vertically, horizontally, increase size of the scan, and much more.
  • Level-based story
    • Uncover the story of what happened inside The Voidness.
  • Saving Levels System
    • Save progress by finding save points and certain auto-saves.
  • Inventory Management
    • Find supplies, upgrades, health packs, and more items vital for survival.
  • Hiding System
    • Hide from enemies under tables and try to stay quiet since they can hear you from the microphone.
  • Gut Wrecking Moments
    • Walking on broken glass can make noises that the enemy may hear, same as moving crates or knocking over objects.
  • Stealth System
    • Try to sneak through terrifying enemies that can only be seen by the scanner.
  • Plan Accordingly
    • Players need to plan their next move as it may be their last.
