Curious if this game has appeared in any charity bundles to date?  Budget is rather tight, so I'm wondering if I already have it!  :)

Yes, this game was in the TTRPG Bundle for Trans Youth!

(+1)

So much love for your participation in that! <3  I ended up buying a copy anyways because I have no impulse control, whoops.  Can't wait to record this!!!

hi there,

I hate to ask, but are there likely to be any more community copies made available?

Just added 10, have fun!

You're a legend. Thank you so much.

When I was locked up in quarantine with COVID, I played this game and found such a comfort in a lone broadcaster sending out music on the airwaves to anyone who may be listening. And to top it off, now I have my very own playlist to reminisce to!

That is simply wonderful and devastating to hear (in a nice way). I'm glad you made it through that, and I'm glad the game was able to help. If you ever get an itch to broadcast, I'll be happy to send your show out on the airwaves.

have fallen in love with this game and been listening to the affiliate broadcasts while doing desk work at my job. it has inspired me to try my hand at doing my own broadcasts and releasing them for others to hear!  

I love hearing this, and if you're ever willing to share, I would love to hear them.

Got to play this on my podcast/on stream! Had such a great time, I'll be playing again.

Hi, my name is Johannes, I'm from the Rollenspielverein Biberach e.V. rpg club in Biberach, Germany. We want to play it perhaps with publishing the results of the play and writing a review on our homepage. I contacted Ken via Instagram and he lead me to this site. May we use the cover page and/or other pictures for our article? Many thanks in advance!

our homepage is rollenspielverein-biberach.de (all in German unfortunately...)

Yes that's me, I'm Ken! You can find assets for use here, it's all a free download and there is also a dropbox link with the same files: https://bannerlessgames.itch.io/void-press-kit

Awesome, you're the best!

I've played three sessions of these and during my second official session, things got really heavy while I used the Voices in the Void sheet. I didn't expect myself to breach those topics for myself but it's cathartic in its own way. I honestly love the whole "continued broadcast" bits and it really is a good way to stimulate my creativity and to show not only the humanity in people's stories but to let out some feelings. Seriously a visceral and beautiful game.

Side note: Do you plan on having an expansion for music prompts? I kinda feel a bit restricted, but at the same time, I think that's the point? Hahaha.

Thank you for your very kind words!

I have, in fact, debated that very question. It's a tough line to walk: I want the prompts to be specific enough to get your mind searching (without being overly prescriptive) and broad enough that they're open to endless interpretation (but not so broad they're basically useless). I think I erred on the side of the former, which is fine for a single session but obviously gets constraining over time.

Before I settled on the suits/song blocks format, I wanted to use cards to sort of build a "formula" of songs reacting to the previous songs on the list, but couldn't quite get my head around it. Still thinking about it.

Either which way, I'll see what I can do - more supplemental material is on the way!

Okay, so I cannot afford your game as of today. BUT. I wanted to say thank you for the great broadcast I've heard up until now, it makes me smile and relax :)

Much appreciated. I just put up 20 community copies - please take one with my compliments.

This is one of the most unique games out there right now (and well deserving of its newly awarded ENNIE!). The interactivity across the airwaves evokes play by post/epistolary gaming in a really cool audio medium. I looked up "unique" synonyms when writing this post because I've never seen something that does what this game does and I want so much more of it in my brain.

 I'm excited to dig into Voices in the Void and see how weird and creepy this game can get.

Such a great Game. had the pleasure of playing and being an Affiliate Broadcast already and I cant stop talking about it to my gaming friends. such a cool game 

it was a great show!

Probably the coolest audio-log format solo game I've ever read. Anything that leaves a real world artifact of play is awesome, but the tone coupled with the performative aspect has me itching to give this one a go. 

Hope you're alright with transmissions from space.

ahh sad I discovered this so late!  missed out on the print edition

(+1)

just the pre-order - print copies will be available soon via Knave of Cups and Indie Press Revolution! I expect mid April.

This is a unique game that uses music and prompts to build a classic late night radio style feel.

Having now read through the PDF I'm looking forward to dipping my toe into solo games with this once I find the time!

You mention you stream broadcasts on Youtube (for as long as Youtube allows it) - do you have a link for where on Youtube they're streamed? Or is this an ad-hoc thing?

Great concept, great execution, great game all around! 

Sure do - it's at https://youtube.com/@bannerlessgames. A few of the first broadcasts are there, but copyright makes keeping them online a tricky proposition.

I've been scrolling through the PDF.  Hella excited to get set up and play! Now I just need to organize some songs well enough to draw a library from.   

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

i can’t wait to start playing this! Ive been getting into cassettes and music more lately so this feels like a natural extension? amazing concept. btw, how can i make sure i get the physical copy that i ordered?

(+1)

Glad you're excited! I'll be ordering the print run next week, and if you entered your address you're set. If not I'll email you to get it. I expect these will ship mid April.
