In the first chapter of Ken Follett’s bestselling novel The Pillars of the Earth, mason Tom Builder and his family are journeying through snowy woods when his wife, Agnes, enters labour. The events that follow serve as the opening to Daedalic Entertainment’s adventure game adaptation.
One of the greatest modern-day adventure games is getting a sequel in Silence: The Whispered World 2! What joyous fantasy landscapes and colourful characters will we be… oh. Oh dear me. This is not what I was expecting at all.
Stranded on a world that’s literally one gigantic garbage dump, the adventurous Rufus dreams of escaping his sub-lower-class life to live among the world’s elite in a gleaming floating city in the clouds. He’ll probably kill himself first, the idiot.
