Note: This game was originally called Silence: The Whispered World II, sequel to The Whispered World — the review of which, FYI, incorrectly reflects yours truly as the reviewer when in reality, I haven’t even played the game. Be that as it may, the title of the subject game has apparently been shortened to a single word: Silence.

It’s a time of war. Noah and his little sister Renie take shelter in a bunker and find themselves in a land between life and death called Silence. When Renie gets lost, Noah must venture forth and try to find her.

Join Noah and Renie on their journey through an idyllic but threatening world that bears the scars of war. Experience an emotionally gripping story of contrasts between serenity and danger.

Silence features elaborate 3D characters on 2D backgrounds; offers three playable characters and up to 12 hours of gameplay. The game will be released in Q4 2016 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and PS4.

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.
