V.O.I.D. | Featured ImageFreshly added to the Nintendo eShop for your consideration, V.O.I.D. is a retro-inspired platformer title from the folks at Nape Games and JanduSoft.  Described as being a side-scrolling action game, it blends aspects of both the 8 and 16-bit eras while adding in a touch of modern flair. It will feature two different playable characters, each with a different type of gameplay. Additionally, the game will span more than 50 levels and include an old-school password system.  A brief description of the story (provided by the publisher) can be found below:

PLOIDS are the evolution of the human race by merging technology with its DNA. Our planet is invaded by a race from another galaxy, which destroys everything it touches to become thus with absolute power.

After some time, a group of Ploids decides to take action and return the peace. To achieve this, Alpha and Omega must travel through time to eras of ancient land, in order to obtain sacred stones that will give him the necessary power to defeat the invaders. Some of the ancient epochs are feudal Japan, the ice age, the medieval era or among others. What he does not know is that the invaders tried to get those holy stones before him! … In addition, time threatens to collapse, and only you can connect to the PLOIDS to save the Earth!
