Silence Videogame on Nintendo Switch Review

War rages on. During an air raid, 16 year old Noah and his little sister Renie seek shelter in a bunker. There, not only are they protected from the deadly bombardment, but are also at the crossroads of a world between life and death: Silence. When Noah’s sister gets lost in Silence, he is forced to venture into this idyllic yet threatening world to find her.

Silence, however, bears its own scars of war and suffering. Dark creatures haunt towns and cities and ravage this once serene place between worlds. Only a small band of rebels stands against the looming menace. Now it is up to the siblings to save Silence and its fantastic inhabitants from impending doom and thus also save their own lives.

Join Noah and Renie on their exciting journey through Silence where an emotionally gripping story of contrasts between serenity and danger unfolds. Meet fascinating and likeable characters like Spot, the magical caterpillar who helps Noah and Renie on their way through Silence. And witness when the siblings discover that the only thing that can save them is their love for each other.

Intrigued by the trailer, Silence was a fun game to play. The story line was clear and exciting in the short film; however, it is not as clear while playing the game. The introduction is very long and took a while for me to start playing with no way of speeding it up. Hopefully, as the game updates this is an option that can be added in the future.

It is a very “click” based game (it requires you to select items very often) however, there is a glitch that does not always allow you to click it or it makes it very difficult to do so.  Again, I received this game before it came out and was available for purchase, so I'm hoping with an update that can be worked out so that it's easier for you to click  for an easier and smoother game play. 

It started out a bit slow and I was curious to where it was going, but the more I played the more fun I had, it was a very interesting game and enjoyable once you get past the first little bit.  It is filled with lots of quests and challenges and is very unique. I did enjoy it and would love to play it again, especially once the updates roll in for the small glitches in the game. 

The game tells an emotionally gripping story, imaginative puzzles, beautiful visuals blending 2D and
 3D art design, compelling characters and hours of fully voiced dialogue, Silence is part sequel, part spin-off of the classic adventure The Whispered World, which was also developed and published by Daedalic Entertainment.

Silence is available for purchase now on Nintendo Switch retailing at $39.99  in the Nintendo Store. It's also available on Playstatin 4, Xbox One and Steam. To find out more about Silence, please visit Daedalic’s official website.

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Silence on Nintendo Switch at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
