Jan 10, 2023Children of Silentown works: it tells a good story, has some great moments and is characterized by a captivating visual style.
Jan 18, 2023Children of Silentown left us with very good impressions. If its puzzle/mini game element had been tamed and there were more "typical" adventure puzzles or even like those of the last chapter, then it would have scored even higher. However, the darkly beautiful story it tells, its immersive atmosphere and the messages it wants to convey are more than enough to make it stay etched in your memory for a long time.
Jan 11, 2023In Lucy's full of nightmares world, we must solve the problems that await us on our journey to learn the fate of the village's disappeared, and sing our song to make people talk.
Jan 5, 2023With a striking hand-drawn art style and challenging puzzles, Children of Silentown is a decent romp for those adventure game fans seeking a dark journey.
Feb 24, 2023Children of Silentown has a thought-provoking story, with an art style that is impossible not to enjoy. A point and click adventure spanning over five chapters to enjoy – if you can get past the infuriating mini games – there’s much to be fond of. Unfortunately, the story ends abruptly, but your journey up till then will be full of mystery and intrigue.
Jan 19, 2023Despite fumbling at the finish line, Children of Silentown presents an intriguing story that illustrates how fear can cause people to lose sight of what’s important. The puzzles are reasonably challenging and varied, with appealing visuals that help amplify the game’s moody atmosphere. Although the pacing drags in certain areas, Children of Silentown is an enjoyable point-and-click game overall and I would recommend it for both fans of the genre and puzzle game aficionados alike.
Jan 19, 2023The gameplay is pretty standard but also very well done. The minigames could be tweaked a bit; leaving your player feeling stupid isn’t exactly a good thing. But the story overshadows a lot of my complaints: it’s intriguing, it’s heartfelt, it’s scary. It’s not the best game you’ll ever play, but the developers have tried to make something distinct, at least.

May 15, 2023After I finished the game I had the feeling it was too short. Actually it's not about the game being too short, but it's the story that leavesAfter I finished the game I had the feeling it was too short. Actually it's not about the game being too short, but it's the story that leaves the impression to be abruptly finished with a constrained ending (endings in this case). The story begins promising with all that mystery around the missing villagers abducted by a surrounding dreadful forest, and becomes more interesting when the main character starts to ask more questions about that. But you find yourself in the last chapter of the game waiting anxious for some answers or at least some clues about what really happened and, instead of that, all you got are more questions.
Children of Silentown accentuate the sensation of an incomplete work also because the game focus more on the story line and less on the gameplay. The point-and-click actions are more exploring than puzzling tasks.
If there is a department of the game which I would praise that is the background music. Also I like the charming personality of the main character, Lucy, and I would loved to see more rich personalities of the other characters.
