"The void rolls back" is a game made in 48h for the GMTK jam 2022.

It's the end of the world again. The void has taken over everything, and is causing entropy in all 6 regions. However, you and your companions know the drill by now. Armed with powerful reality-altering dice, you set out on a journey to restore the lands, and hopefully beat the end of times again. To win, you must reach the edge of the world and defeat the horror which lurks there.

was something supposed to happen when i killed a monster that had a question mark pointing me to it?

i escaped and it took me about 15 mins after finding the escape place to actually get to touch it due to not having the right dice shapes :/

glad you had fun X)


also. minor bug: one time i went to a dif side and then i noticed that the number was not the same number as the one i had been previously on, and it was indeed a different side. i have no idea how the glitch was triggered, but it was.

This has happened to me too! Visiting a side I've already visited from another angle. At first I thought it was because of how perspective shifts, but I was unable to backtrack to where I was previously. Just the t-shaped intersection on both sides. Very strange.

Yeah the edges can be weird if you go at a right angle X)

Ouah gg, Super pour une Game Jam !!! Et aussi go mettre des bonnes notes pour la GMTK, la commu creersonjeu.fr on est là eheh

merci :) j'ai encore quelques jeux à jouer avant de pouvoir choisir qui je note et j'arrive!


Such a wonderful amazing cool masterpiece holy &#/$"% I wish I was you man loved it, had volume too high for the lurking horror xD but who cares great game omg


thanks for playing :) and sorry about the volume, I'm bad at mixing


I really like the spatial mechanics here, getting around - and avoiding getting stuck - is a fun puzzle. I mostly avoided combat until the last part of the game, but I like the trade-offs the dice give in how you can choose to use them. spawning enemies with coloured dice seems like a good way to get more of that die type, though you better be ready for dealing with all of those enemies... also, good music and great art!

thanks for playing :))
