The Silent Age takes you on an adventurous journey into a dystopian future where mankind has gone extinct!

The Silent Age is an atmospheric point-and-click adventure game with stylized visuals and an eerie soundtrack that will keep you in suspense as you solve mind-bending puzzles.

Background Story -------------------------------------------------

Its 1972. Love is free. Flipflops, English leather and bandanas are the height of fashion. Meanwhile the Cold War is more than lukewarm and a real one is going on overseas. Movements are happening. Environmentalists, the female liberties movement, and on the dance floors an entirely different kind of movement is overtaking the underground clubs. The winds of change are certainly blowing over the country.

Somewhere in the big city, in a tall, faceless government building someone left a window open. All the winds of change are doing here is blowing leaves all over Joes newly-swept floor. Hes been there for two years now. Working a dead-end attendant job making sure the building is as spotless as the suits walking the halls. Its been like this for years, going from one soul-devouring job to the next.

Our protagonist is Joe in more than just name. He is quite literally Joe Average. Average height, average weight, average IQ. In fact, the only thing remotely remarkable about him is exactly how much he conforms to the median of the hypothetical everyman, and up until this point, Joes life hasn't exactly been biography material.

This is all about to change...

Awesome game. The stage has been set for an excellent dystopian adventure through time and space.

I can see the future chapters being IAP but that's understandable considering the quality of story and gameplay. And judging from the end credits, the next chapters look like they are already lined up, which is exciting (How does Joe end up in a bar?!?).

Kudos to the devs! I look forward to continuing Joe's tale!
