Wow this game stole 4 hours of my day today, but it was a worthwhile experience until now. It's hazy, intricate and labyrinthine - but just enough that I don't get stressed. It offered a weird world and a lot to discover. It's also very nice in game design aspects.

Much love!

I would gladly pay for that experience.


Hello, Elektix! I am a big fan of this game and enjoy playing it on my phone. I wanted to download it onto my laptop to play it there, but when I had downloaded the Mac version it said that the game is not up to date with my MacOS. I wanted to contact you to ask if you will please update the mac version of this game. I would really appreciate it! 

What engine did you use to make this game?

OHRRPGCE! It's flexible and fun to use. Definitely check it out.

Hello, manjaro linux here, segmentation fault after opening loading screen. I tried to run it with gdb and shows:

Thread 1 "voidpyramid" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xf7f9814a in ogg_stream_pagein () from /usr/lib32/libogg.so.0

I'll have to figure out what's going on with the Linux version. Until I have a chance to test it more. I'm going to disable it. Sorry!

On Linux, I got a missing library error for SDL 1.2. I downloaded and installed SDL 1.2 into the same folder as the game, but it still couldn't find it.

great little rpg.  actually reminds me of an rpg version of axiom verge and that's a deep compliment.  little bits of story are told through found lore and you kind of connect the dots as you go.  i actually like grinding and it's not a bad idea to do that in this game.  building attack and wits stats are good early on so you can oneshot enemies that you take a turn with first and so those enemies have a higher chance of rewarding you with a stat boost.

Never heard of Axiom Verge. I just looked it up. Seems cool. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. =)

Thanks for playing and commenting on Void Pyramid.

This is an excellent RPG! I love just about everything it offers, including the clever use of art and detail for an 8-bit style!

See my blog post for more detailed thoughts on the game (as well as a highlight video from a recent livestream).

Loved this game. Finished this game on my phone during a 10-hour flight. It is a strangely satisfying mix of exploration, rpg element, black humor, retro art, bizarre setting. The developer has some common annoying elements, like stats number-crunching removed - battles are simply won or lose. I can say this is one of the most inspiring indie game on itch. Thank you.

Thanks so much for playing! I'm currently working on a new version due out this November. If you are looking for a reason to replay it, this version will add lots of new content. I'm also trying to get it Greenlit on Steam. If you you feel like supporting me, get on Steam and vote it up: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=782146949

I agree, this is perfect for playing on the plane! (I used a windows tablet with keyboard (convertible))


This game is phenomenal. It's a no-holds-barred JRPG that sometimes feels like a roguelike or paper/pencil RPG. And it's even got mild puzzles. The way you build your character will determine your path.

If fighting through an intensely bizarre, dense dungeon/prison, barely surviving, sounds like fun to you, you gotta experience the Void Pyramid.

Thank you so much for this game. It might be my favorite on itchio.

This is fascinating and makes the impression of being super hard.
