The Thin Silence is a cinematic narrative adventure game with both puzzle and exploration elements, told through the introspection and recollection of Ezra Westmark. Find creative ways to make your way out of the darkness, uncovering the journey that led him there and the hope that leads him home.
Inspired by point-and-click adventure games, The Thin Silence allows you to collect and combine important items along your journey. These items and their combinations can be used to manipulate the environment in many varied and unexpected ways. Obstacles are not intended as a test of your intelligence. Rather, you are facing the same challenges that Ezra faces and thinking creatively to overcome them. Do not expect to solve the same puzzle over and over again.
Much like recently indie story-driven (Inside, The Beginner’s Guide, Gone Home, Firewatch etc.) hits, The Thin Silence is intended to be a conversation, a 21st-century recurrence of an ancient pastime. Sit and stare into the fire, and we’ll tell you a story.
The game is currently Greenlight and if successful, is slated for a tentative late 2016 release. Here's the announcement trailer:
