Bask in The Meaninglessness of Your Existence

The Void Looks Back is a modern twist on retro shooters with horror undertones beneath the surface. Survive all five levels (currently one in the demo) with four unique weapons. Destroy four types of aliens, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Discover the strange place you have found yourself in and try to escape.
