The Children Of Silentown Will Be Making Some Noise In 2022

Don't ever venture into the woods. That's what the Children of Silentown are repeatedly told, but will Lucy listen? Nooooo.

2022 isn’t that long away, so should Children of Silentown take your fancy, you won’t have to count the sleeps until it sneaks into your PC or console cart when it’s released.

From Elf Games, Luna2 Studio and Daedalic Entertainment, this is a hand-drawn dark adventure set in a small village, surrounded by deep woods filled with monsters. It follows the story of Lucy as she ventures out into the woods – a place nobody should ever enter, based on all the disappearances.

Lucy will have to solve puzzles using the items she’s found, play minigames with the other children. According to a scrap of paper in front of me here, ‘Music plays an important role and learning to sing helps Lucy in tricky situations’.

Key features in Children of Silentown include:

  • Explore Silentown in search of hints, but beware: do not enter the forest.
  • A unique, unsettling 2D art style fitting for a mysterious, dark tale.
  • Music plays a crucial role, and learning how to sing will help Lucy in times of need.
  • Combine items to obtain widely unexpected results!
  • Many quirky characters (and animals!) to interact with. Be nice to them before they disappear.
  • Play minigames with the other children of the village!
  • A very mean cat, programmed to mess with Lucy at any given chance.
  • Solve curious, original puzzles.

Here’s an announcement trailer:

While Children of Silentown isn’t out until 2022, you can still wishlist it and also play the prologue, currently available on Steam.
