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.
This game could've easily stayed into obscurity, but rather then letting it become a literal act of silence, Daedalic took what little they had with the original, and multiplied it by ten, bringing this dead franchise back with more life than ever. The game gives the past characters a grand-reopening without alienating anyone that may not have ever seen them until now. It is ideal that you play the original Whispered World first to fully understand the characters and setting (just make sure to turn off the dialogue and leave only subtitles.) The new characters they create are compelling, but sadly, we don't get to spend as much time with them as we would like. We interact with them, start to learn more about them, but toward the climax, we just leave them. Their story arcs remain unfinished, and we never see or hear from them again, not even if you chose a certain ending. The gameplay is short, but simple, taking roughly 4-6 hours to finish. The puzzles are also quite simple, not leaving the player to get stumped on a mini game to progress through the story. The graphics are dazzling, the characters are charming and complex, and, by the end, you will be wishing that Daedalic sold Spot plush toys in the states. Great experience if you've never played the first one; amazing experience if you have played the first one.
Silence is truly a work of art. It's an exquisitely crafted game combining amazing audio and visuals, a fascinating cinematic story, and point and click adventure gameplay. All in all, the game is done extremely well, and worth playing, but it's also expensive. I fully expect that the hefty price tag will make many people want to wait for a discount.
A cinematic masterpiece. While 'Silence' leaves something to be desired in the gameplay, story, and character aspects, it still holds a lot of heart and a lot of beauty. Yes, it is quite short, but it functions incredibly well as an interactive narrative and makes for an enticing sequel to 'The Whispered World.' While not a classic point-and-click, 'Silence' is a wonderful game and I wholeheartedly recommend it to both long-time Daedalic fans, and genre newcomers seeking a phenomenal visual experience.
This game is very short and simple yet fun to play with. At least its story is not as bad as some other games. This game can be short and simple behind its beautiful visuals hides a very nice, yet sad, story. A story that is worth knowing. Definitely recommended
The story is similar to the previous game, but you'll find the voice acting has improved and the art has moved into a nice 3d style while still keeping to The Whispered World feel. It does, 'however' feel a little disjointed as it moves from scene to scene and chapter to chapter. At least in the first game there was a general direction you knew you needed to get to as you moved through the game, where-as in this game, the direction I felt I needed to go changed several times and in the end, the final chapter was in a complete left field area than what I thought would finish the game. like the "i take you to an epic adventure" type of game where you loose yourself and wake up like from a dream from time to time and don't know where you are for a moment... (this review it totally rational...)
