Dark Void Journal Guide

Dark Void’s hidden goodies are actually not all that hidden, but given the scope of the game’s vertical set pieces, finding them all can be a chore. That’s what we are here for! Keep this page open as you play through the campaign, and you’re sure to find every damned Journal. And continue checking back as we complete the guide.

Above: Catchin’ ‘em all will also net you a kickass Trophy/Achievement

-The first and last chapters, Prologue and  The Tower of Return, DO NOT contain any hidden journals, so set your minds at ease!
-Sometimes Journals will not be found in numerical order.
-We strongly recommend you go in the order we’ve listed out. Some Journals you can run back for, others may require you to restart a chapter.
-Dark Void is DARK! Many of these images were brightened for your sake, sometimes at a loss of quality – Sorry Capcom!


Journal Order:
1. Earhart 1 of 3
2. Loinsigh 1 of 11
3. Earhart 2 of 3
4. Loinsigh 2 of 11
5. Akasha 1 of 2
6. Akasha 2 of 2
7. Earhart 3 of 3
Earhart 1 of 3

After defeating a small army of Watcher robots on the other end of a ravine, cross the log bridge. Before you ascend up the ramp, duck into the small enclave on your left. BAM: 1st Journal!

Loinsigh 1 of 11

After you’ve used the turret to dispose an onslaught of enemies, run down the stairs, but don’t cross the walkway just yet. Just to the left of the rail is a not-so-well hidden journal.

Earhart 2 of 3

Once you come to a waterfall, you should be able to make out an ammo cache. Just to the right of that, partially obscured by rock is a journal.

Loinsigh 2 of 11

Right after you’ve learned about vertical cover and scaled down the cliff face, you’ll see a rope bridge on the right. Before you cross, head through the two columns to find another journal.

Akasha 1 of 2

Cross the rope bridge and head towards the weapons cache. You can’t miss it.

Akasha 2 of 2

Upon entering the giant area with the standing water keep left, heading towards the bots that are firing at you. Just behind a giant tree root is a journal clearly visible in the brush.

Earhart 3 of 3

You’ll enter another redish cave where a Watcher drone will engage you on the left. Take him out but don’t head that way just yet. Instead go straight, between the two burning pyres and find a journal hidden in the foliage.

    Jet Pack. Do you need to say more- grap a plane jump in, jump out. It is a Jet Pack game. Do not think story line or weapons (not great) or enemies (slugs are kinda fun). Jet Pack = Great.

    uhm, do the journals serve any purpose other than "fleshing" the story and adding a token collectible element? a list of hidden techpoints would be more useful imho.

    After reading your review i don't think anybody else will buy this game anyway :P but thanks for putting it up so quick!
