I really enjoyed the game, it was in an interesting experience. I wrote about it in my blog also! :)
Silence! The Elder Speaks
A downloadable game for Windows
Play as a wisecracking shaman in a WWI helmet and mess with a handful of silly villagers in a picturesque forest hamlet!
Silence! The Elder Speaks is an interactive short story told through the mechanics of a classic 16-bit adventure RPG. It features lots of silly dialogue and reams of choices that shape your narrative, culminating in one of 24 (ever-so-slightly) different endings.
Progression in Silence! occurs voluntarily, regardless of whether or not you decide to solve the game's puzzles or complete the sidequests. It is not a traditional RPG.
In Silence! The Elder Speaks, there are no wrong choices, no objectives, no Game Overs, and the only thing that will kill you is old age.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my short time with this adorable, unsettling, and hilarious RPG/storybook."
