Popping up on the Nintendo Switch eShop this week in Europe, and next week in North America, is Silence, an "emotionally gripping" story which blends serenity and danger.
Before we dive into the technical stuff, here's a quick game description for you to sink your teeth into:
War rages on. During an air raid, 16 year old Noah and his little sister Renie seek shelter in a bunker. There, not only are they protected from the deadly bombardment, but are also at the crossroads of a world between life and death: Silence. When Noah’s sister gets lost in Silence, he is forced to venture into this idyllic yet threatening world to find her.
Silence, however, bears its own scars of war and suffering. Dark creatures haunt towns and cities and ravage this once serene place between worlds. Only a small band of rebels stands against the looming menace. Now it is up to the siblings to save Silence and its fantastic inhabitants from impending doom and thus also save their own lives.
You'll meet interesting characters like Spot along the way, a magical caterpillar who helps Noah and Renie on their way through Silence, and witness the moment when the siblings discover that the only thing that can save them is their love for each other.
If you're in Europe, you can go ahead and pick this one up right now for £35.99 (there's also a physical release); if you're in North America, you'll have to wait for its 11th April release date.
