-“When the great evil came from the stars, we first lost our Sun. Then…our own technology was used against us. We’ve been defeated, even before the invasion started. But we didn’t lose our hope. We would fight! We would die! We would live all in the name of the Oracle! When all hopes were lost, we have been blessed with the light of the Oracle and the gate of the void has been open before his eternal image!”
Those lines seriously gave me chills, when I saw the trailer of Voidrunner, a speed and reflex flying game, currently in development. To be frank, this is one among the best indie games that I’ve seen so far. Why? You’ll get to know soon enough.

What is it’s gameplay about?
The game is primarily based on flight-mechanics and MOBA style gameplay. There’s a single player campaign along with multiplayer and co-op playability with more than 11 game modes.
Basically, you need to reach the exit-portal, to clear each and every level, within a certain time-limit. Don’t worry, as you’ll face environmental obstacles and enemies as well that’ll prevent your progress. Several game modes allow you to devise strategies and use the environment against your enemies.
You can even customize and upgrade your ship to make your task of clearing levels a lot easier. As you progress, you earn various achievements along with experience points that’ll further help in leveling up your gameplay.
