Silence is an “Emotionally Gripping Story of Contrasts”

Releasing next week on April 11th, Silence is a narrative point & click adventure story that blends “serenity and danger” in a tale of two siblings and their emotional adventure through a world of perils. Here’s the game description from the Nintendo site game page:

“War rages on. During an air raid, 16 year old Noah and his little sister Renie seek shelter in a bunker. There, not only are they protected from the deadly bombardment, but are also at the crossroads of a world between life and death: Silence. When Noah’s sister gets lost in Silence, he is forced to venture into this idyllic yet threatening world to find her.

Silence, however, bears its own scars of war and suffering. Dark creatures haunt towns and cities and ravage this once serene place between worlds. Only a small band of rebels stands against the looming menace. Now it is up to the siblings to save Silence and its fantastic inhabitants from impending doom and thus also save their own lives.

Join Noah and Renie on their exciting journey through Silence where an emotionally gripping story of contrasts between serenity and danger unfolds. Meet fascinating and likeable characters like Spot, the magical caterpillar who helps Noah and Renie on their way through Silence. And witness when the siblings discover that the only thing that can save them is their love for each other.”

The game was previously released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2016, and is Daedelic Entertainment’s most successful title to date. While technically it’s a sequel to The Whispered World from 2010, it’s been retitled as simply Silence (instead of Silence 2: The Whispered World) presumably to let new players know that the first game is not a necessary experience to enjoy this instalment.

The game has been praised for its stunning artistic design and hand-painted backdrops.

It arrives in the eShop for $39.99USD next week.
