Silence is Now Available for Xbox One
After almost four years of development, Silence is now available on Xbox One and Windows 10. The digital version supports Xbox Play Anywhere, allowing players to enjoy the game on both systems and only having to buy it once.
It’s the sequel to The Whispered World that tells the story of Noah and Renie, siblings who find a gate to Silence, a world between life and death, while looking for shelter during a bomb raid. The idea for Silence was created while the dev-team was still working on The Whispered World.
The game focuses on the flow of the experience. It has challenging puzzles, but the developers didn’t want them to impede the plot or to disrupt the experience of being part of the story. At the same time, theyve modernized the visuals. They worked with a process called projection mapping that allowed them to project the hand painted images on 3D models, providing flexibility in terms of positioning, framing, and zooming. A process that opened completely new ways of staging in-game scenes.
With this focus on narrative and staging, the dev-team is trying to give players a fluid experience that will draw them into the story and allow them to immerse themselves into their character’s journey without interruptions. The gameplay was designed with gamepad controls in mind, bBut given that the PC is the home platform of adventure games, we’ve made sure players can switch input systems at will.
We hope to have more on Silence as soon as possible.
