Void Terrarium trailer features genre-blending gameplay

But that fungi body-horror still makes my skin crawl

Nippon Ichi Software has released the first gameplay trailer for its wildly-titled adventure game void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium (or simply Void Terrarium). The Japanese video shows off the strange title’s blend of exploration, crafting, combat and survival elements.
