    A masterpiece. This is the way every software house should think and build a graphic "point & click" adventure game.

    Silence offers a captivating mix of innocent delight layered over an undercurrent of wistful sadness, wrapped up in lovely art and music. The story could have done with a bit more flesh on its bones, but it’s filled with nuance and heart.

    Silence sets new standards for the genre, simply looks fantastic and just kept us going - at least for five hours.

    Silence is a great follow-up to the Sadwick's Chronicles: Whispered World with a great story and awesome visuals. The gameplay is quite simple with easy enigmas and a short lifespan, but those drawbacks are nothing in comparison with the game's qualities.

    Silence is a good adventure Telltale-like game with a great story and less-good puzzles.

    Silence is a charming if challenging adventure in a world of dreams with inventive, if sometimes harder than necessary, puzzles. The setting and a gorgeous aesthetic add to the charm. Great voicework with interesting characters make this worth a look.

    Successor to The Whispered World didn’t make it to the developer’s Hall of Fame. The game abandons the principles of a classic adventure game and tries to push on more action playing style like are games from Telltale Games studio – not very successfully to be honest.

    Beautiful graphics, charming story, frustration-free gameplay.
    I dislike point & click adventure games that make you hunt for a pixel or combine everything in your inventory with everything else. In Silence, the game gives you plenty of environmental clues, textual clues, as well as pointing out which objects in the environment are interactable. I'm sure the point & click purists will complain about 'dumbing it down', but there's a reason that kind of gameplay is not popular anymore. Overall, highly enjoyable few hours!

The bigges feature in TWW2 is its artstyle: the way Daedalic blends 2D and 3D is something I've never seen before. It definitely feels like the future of 2D, and I'm sure many other titles in the future will use that awesome technique.

    So far, I'm loving the story and the characters are charming, despite the general dark tone. Everything's amazing!

    Five Word Review: Pretty, short, and enjoyable adventure.
    Favorite Thing: It has a nice graphical style and I really like the character design. The lack of an inventory, and carrying around dozen of items, also needs to be commended.
    Least Favorite Thing: The basis of the story is the exact same as the previous game; shatter the mirror.

    Date Completed: 2017-05-24
    Playtime: ~ 5h
    Enjoyment: 8/10
    Recommendation: Yes, it's a solid adventure game.

The story, which is the main featureI like the overall visual of this game, even though I find some part of the game to be a bit too weird. The story, which is the main feature of the game, is not bad, but it has not much charm to hook me into it. Maybe it is just me and my girlfriend who do not enjoy this kind of story that much. I do like the humour of this game by the way. Get it if you like the art and, I don't know,... maybe .... Alice. Expand

    I'll start stating that I really liked The Whispered World.
    And I really wanted to love this. I really, really, did. I tried to close both my eyes in front of its shortcomings.
    But at some point, I couldn't anymore.
    Gameplay is bad. There's no way around it. There's no inventory, just clicks on the scenes and move the mouse. It's super easy. Just click, no brain required. No "classic" puzzles. Dumbed down interface designed for gamepads. Why the hell are we **** up potentially amazing adventure games so much just to accomodate them to consoles? Really pisses me off.
    Every time you move from a location to another (and sometimes you have to do it quite often, repeatedly) there's a loading screen... and loading times are ATROCIOUS. They're WAY too long and happen WAY too often. It's exhausting. It's intolerable.
    Game is quite slow. Like, annoyingly slow. You can't skip animations, and some of them (like the insect that flies on the mushroom at the beginning, or Spot that does an action that you may have to repeat many times to solve the puzzle) are kinda long and take control away from you for TOO MUCH TIME, it's extremely annoying. Which leaded to an exponential increase of the game's duration because I alt-tabbed A LOT out of sheer boredom... which only makes things worse because the game autopauses when you do it (I absolutely hate when games do this: *I* should decide when to pause).
    The good things... I love the setting. I'm really intrigued by the story. The characters are interesting. It's well written. Artistically, I am really impressed by it. It's absolutely beautiful: the scenery is really amazing, the 3D models are well designed and - astoningshly - don't feel out of place in the 2D backgrounds (as a general rule, I still prefer 2D characters and animations, though), the animations are smooth. It's truly a beauty to behold and it has a poetic, heartwarming quality on itself. Some characters (like Kyra and her bizarre head) do have some weird proportions, though.
    The musics are also good. Voice acting can be extremely dull and toneless, though.

    I love it for the story and the characters. I hate it for the gameplay.
