The Silent Age is a simple and brief point-and-click game that we found to be subtly charming. We can state that everything in The Silent Age is new or overly spectacular, making it a pleasurable experience. If you enjoy point-and-click adventure games, you should give this a try.
We truly don’t know where to begin. We just want to gush so we can get it out of our system before the “real review” of The Silent Age begins. The colors, Ohh dear god!! The game just screams! The 1970s were not our favorite decade, and we weren’t even alive at the time, but the color pallet is stunning. Getting to visit a glimpse of the time period was refreshing, and it was the last place we expected to be, but we’re delighted we could go for a little.
The Silent Age game took us by surprise. Yes, the game looks fantastic, but that is only the surface. The game’s concept is time travel, and you can visit sites in the 1970s and the future (probably somewhere in the 2010s). The sharp contrast of each might be surprising yet effective as you piece together what might happen in the future.
The plot isn’t all that original. You are an everyday Joe (your character’s name is Joe) who works as a janitor. As you go about your regular activities, you come across a man who claims to be a time traveler and that you must assist him in preventing the end of the world. In the race to rescue the future, you are given a technology that allows you to seamlessly shift between decades. The plot of The Silent Age is quite standard. However, it is the delivery that makes all the difference.
The puzzles are one-of-a-kind. They are not difficult to master. To answer the puzzles as you tour the planet, you will need to journey back and forth in time. You are not dealing with a large stock. You only have enough to tackle the tasks in your immediate surroundings. All of the puzzle answers in The Silent Age are plausible. The game is necessarily simplistic as a result of this, as well as the fact that there aren’t many inventory items to be found. The time-travel aspect, while not new, helps spice up some of the puzzle-solving and, without a question, adds to the game’s appeal.
The game has a simple point-and-click interface. There was no reason to use a keyboard at all. The soundtrack, or lack thereof at times, was really effective in conveying the bleakness of a possible future. For the most part, the voice acting was excellent. The characters provide us with some interesting pasts, which helps flesh them out and makes them appear more real.
We’ve already shared the basic story of The Silent Age, but while we don’t want to give too much away, we discovered some interesting societal issues during the game. We believe this is a game worth discussing with a group of individuals. It may be in the sci-fi genre, but, like many sci-fi movies or games, it is inspired by genuine social or political challenges.
