Say hello to Joe, a simple janitor. Accompany him as he travels back-and-forth between 1972 and 2012 in an effort to discover and stop whatever caused humankind’s extinction. He receives this quest from a dying man in the future.

Uni Dahl, CEO of House on Fire: “Getting the opportunity to continue work on The Silent Age has been a dream. We’re obviously very passionate about the series and have put enormous effort into bringing it to the next level for the PC audience. The game’s current art style, storyline and minimal UI, combined with the newly added character voiceover and Ultra HD graphics, make it a natural fit for PC.”

Andy Sher, CEO of [publisher] Meridian4: “We’ve put a lot of effort into adapting The Silent Age for Steam users-it will not be a direct mobile to PC port. What made The Silent Age so successful on mobile was its rich narrative. We want Steam users to experience this same narrative, but presented in a way that meets their expectations of what a PC game should be. This is why we’re helping House on Fire update The Silent Age for a PC audience with things like Ultra HD graphics, voice acting and more.”

Starting May 29th, The Silent Age will be available for PC on Steam.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
