With dwindlingFade to Silence is a Survival-RPG set in the cold and deadly world of a post-apocalyptic winter. You assume the role of Ash, a natural but tormented leader, exploring a post-apocalyptic frozen wasteland, gathering the resources necessary to establish a refuge for survival. With dwindling supplies, simple tasks like upgrading equipment and collecting materials require an immediate expedition to scavenge the necessary items. In the search for survival materials, players must navigate a vast territory, in which they will encounter Eldritch monsters and an even greater foe; the unrelenting winter. While freezing temperatures constantly take their toll on Ash, the deadliest event is a constant threat – a blizzard. If caught by surprise, it takes every ounce of skill, determination and luck to survive. Expand

    The game culminates into an expert combination of storytelling, survival, and community management, leaving me quite satisfied with the result.

    Fade to Silence is a real survival game with hints of Souls-like that sets the mood and raises the tension. Even if its graphics are not top-of-the-range, the sets reflect the extreme conditions in which we find ourselves and the soundtrack is a very good match. It's a pity that there are still a few bugs left. If the concept of permanent death can make you angry, it remains an essential element, it would be a pity to ignore it by using the exploration mode, which we advise you to use only in last resort, since bargains and blessings allow you to restart stronger and save time.

    Fade To Silence is a game that pushes all the right buttons, but it doesn’t push some of them quite hard enough. In a survival game, it’s important for hostile threats to be just as important as the resource gathering, management, and base building. The idea is there, the environment is there, but the mechanics are only half there when one half is a rather addictive base management system and the other half is overly simplistic combat.

    This could be a halfway decent addition to the ever-growing number of open world survival adventures. But certain design decisions like permadeath (which even From Software stayed away from) keep it from escaping mediocrity.

    Immersive, sometimes beautiful and pleasant in co-op, Fade to Silence is a game that unfortunately fails to bring a polished combat system, a good narrative experience, or even a correct technical side (bugs, crash, AI issues).

    Fade to Silence is a broken mess where even the simplest of tasks is frustrating.

    It has good ideas and great ambitions within the survival and construction genre, but it is not possible to successfully transfer their to the final video game.

    After the patches the game improved drastically.

    Great atmosphere, great feeling of "you against the wilderness". The blizzards look and feel absolutely GREAT. A little unforgiving when it comes to enemies destroying you but...hey! It's survival. I enjoyed the rogue-like elements it has.

    Voice acting could be better.

    If you like survival games definitely give it a try.

    The voice acting is horrific, but the mix of elements in the game works well (playing exploration only because I expected to send this back after a cursory examination)

Wait for a few patches or smth, because of its still early access game or don't buy it at all cuz the devs just lost out trust. Expand

    Big Budget Studio uses Unity3D. I am sure this game will be great.... oh yes, its unity and runs like garbage.

    This game is garbage. More like an alpha than a final release.

    - My workers are always sleeping
    - I can not tell my workers to go hunt or mine because they are always sleeping
    (Seriously like they never wake up.... all 3 of them sleep 24 hours a day)
    - My workers never show up when I add them to my party
    - My daughter is saying she is always hungry even though there is plenty of food
    - The dog sled is absolutely useless and buggy
    - I never need to sleep because my sleep timer stopped working
    - My body gets stuck half way through the ground mainly when on dog sled
    - The fighting mechanics are pretty low end
    - Zero guidance or help offered in game...
    (God forbid you want to look up what an icon means)

    I wouldn't recommend buying this if it was free to play.... No lie...
