The dark point-and-click-adventure Children of Silentown will release on January 11th, 2023. Developers Elf Games and Luna2 Studio have teamed up with publisher Daedalic Entertainment to deliver this haunting story about fear and separation to players on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
The story follows Lucy, a girl growing up in a village deep in a forest inhabited by monsters, as she slowly begins unravelling the mysteries surrounding her. During the day, Lucy spends her time with her friends or helping her mother. But at night, she is haunted by terrible nightmares, listening to the horrible growling coming from beyond the town limits. One thing is clear to her: the dark brings terrible danger and she must never step foot in the forest. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to delve into the forest and face her fears.
Children of Silentown is a dark point-and-click adventure with a unique hand-drawn and eerie art style, combined with atmospheric music to create a hauntingly beautiful world. Players must find notes, collect items and combine them to solve puzzles and play minigames to discover the secrets of Silentown and the forest. Additionally, learning songs is paramount to communicating with others and progressing in the game. This tool even allows players to shape Lucy’s story and experience multiple endings.
Interested players can already try out the prologue for free on Steam. The full game will be released on January 11th, 2023, on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
