I have absolutely no idea what relation this game bears to its predecessor, but Daedalic Entertainment have announced Silence: The Whispered World 2.
If you recall, The Whispered World focused on a clown called Sadwick in a fantasy world, who suffered recurring nightmares of said fantasy world falling apart. Conversely, Silence: The Whispered World 2 revolves around a teenager named Noah and his sister Renie. A CG trailer (which you can see below) shows them playing in a snowy landscape until they spot an air raid, at which point they take shelter from the bombs in a bunker. According to the press release, Noah loses his sister in the real world and hopes to find her again in the dreamworld of Silence. So… maybe that’s the relation? I don’t know. I didn’t play The Whispered World, I’m afraid.
You can have a gander at the CG trailer for yourself below (which, alas, appears to be exclusive to GameTrailers), as well as a smattering of screenshots which actually appear to be captures from said trailer. Silence: The Whispered World 2 is due out in late 2014.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
