The Silent Age (Point-and-click adventure)

Hi, we're House on Fire, a Copenhagen based indie developer. We're proud to announce our upcoming second title, The Silent Age episode 1, the first part of a minimalistic 2D point-and-click adventure game designed exclusively for tablets.

The adventure takes you back and forth between present day 1972 and an unsettling future in 2012. In the game you dive into the role of an average Joe, whose dead end attendant job is all the action he needs. One day while he’s doing his job cleaning an office building he finds a mysterious dying man who seems to come out of nowhere. The man explains Joe that something is about to go wrong which will have catastrophic influences in the future. Before he dies he hands Joe a portable time travel device and tells Joe that the fate of humanity lies in his hands!

Joe has a time travel device which allows him to travel between the present and 40 years in the future. He stays in the same spot during time travel, but the surroundings will have changed greatly. Rooms that are inaccessible in the present may be accessible in the future and vice versa. Items can be transported across time, and puzzle solving usually involves using items from one point in time to solve puzzles in another.

We're currently in the process of bugfixing, building and submitting The Silent Age Episode 1 for the App Store. You can follow our progress on Facebook.

Looks interesting, but I am always wary of buying episodic games. It seems like if a game doesn't do well, the remaining episodes are never released.
That being said, how many total episodes will there be?

Looks great so far; looking forward to seeing more as soon as possible. Any chance new "episodes" will be in-app?

Hi guys

Thanks for the positive feedback. Glad you like it.

So far, 3 episodes are planned, and of course they will be in-app. It makes the most sense, you wouldn't want to end up with 3 separate icons on your home screen
