At Gamescom Daedalic released some new information about Silence – The Whispered World 2. The point and click adventure will feature two playable characters. Players will control Noah and his little sister Renie, who both have strengths and weaknesses when it comes to solving various puzzles. Certain points in the game will require use of one of the two, while other segments will allow the player to choose freely or use both in conjunction to solve puzzles.

This emphasis on using two different characters with different abilities along with the new 3D graphic style should make Whisper a fairly different game from its predecessor, and it will be interesting to see just where Daedalic takes it. Silence is in development for PC and Mac and will be out early next year.

Hamburg, August 15th, 2014. Silence – The Whispered World 2, the upcoming point & click adventure from Daedalic Entertainment, will feature two playable main characters:

For one thing, players will control Noah, the 16-year-old teenager, who once traveled the Whispered World as clown Sadwick. But they can also choose Renie, Noah’s little sister. Noah and Renie both have their very own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to solving the games’ puzzles: At some points during the game, the playable character will be determined by the story – but again and again players will switch freely between Noah and Renie. The solution of many of Silence’ puzzles lies in the cooperation of Noah and Renie. Only when the two siblings work together and use their very specific strengths, they will be able to find their way through the Whispered World.

Noah – the big brother – is strong and tall, at least compared to his little sister Renie. However, very often he’s also overly cautious and easily scared. Therefore, he might refuse to explore creepy places – which is just the most exciting thing to do for Renie and her childlike, untameable curiosity. The six-year-old girl will explore the darkest caverns, cross the deepest chasms and taste basically every item, if she needs to find the right bitter ingredient. Very often she will find hints and new items, that her older brother would have missed out.
But then – Renie is just a little girl, so sometimes she might not recognize the overall concept of things. For example, unlike Noah she can’t play musical instruments and therefore needs to find her own way to master several passages of the game. However, sidekick Spot will turn out not only to be a good friend to Renie – but also a great support on her way through Silence.

In Silence – The Whispered World 2 the actions of Noah and Renie will effect what the other sibling experiences or finds. To think like the curious and childlike Renie as well as the overcautious Noah will be the key to succeed. Some puzzles must be solved with two different strategies, others can only be solved by cooperation of both siblings.

Silence – The Whispered World 2 follows Noah, who is about to lose his little sister Renie to the perils of war. He barely manages to follow her and finds himself alone, back in Silence – the world he once traveled as Sadwick the clown. And even here war ravages the land. In search for his sister Noah joins a group of rebels who fight the false Queen.

Featuring completely new 3D visuals, Silence – The Whispered World 2 will offer many novelties to players. Sadwick’s and Renie’s quest will lead them to a visually impressive and emotionally investing adventure, with many mysteries to unravel around Sadwick, his sister and the world of Silence.

Silence – The Whispered World 2 will be released for PC and Mac in early 2015.
