Time Travel Puzzles

What is it about?

The game offers a relatively familiar point, and click adventure style as you need to search different rooms to gather items that you then need to use to advance. What really changes it up is the time travel inclusion allowing you to flip time to see the same room, but in a different time with new potential items. There’s a whole new layer of puzzle intrigue thanks to having a second time period in the same setting.

For those who...

  • Like dystopian themes
  • Enjoy puzzles
  • Like seeing how things change over time

Not for those who...

  • Don't like puzzles
  • Don't like dystopian themes
  • Are not fans of time travel

Why we love it

Stylized games are always fun and unique, and The Silent Age is no different. The game has flashy visuals but still provides the right amount of challenge in the puzzles. Plus it is fun to travel between two different time periods and see what a future is like where mankind is extinct.

Background Story -------------------------------------------------

It’s 1972. Love is free. Flipflops, English leather and bandanas are the height of fashion. Meanwhile the Cold War is more than lukewarm and a real one is going on overseas. Movements are happening. Environmentalists, the female liberties movement, and on the dance floors an entirely different kind of movement is overtaking the underground clubs. The winds of change are certainly blowing over the country.

Somewhere in the big city, in a tall, faceless government building someone left a window open. All the winds of change are doing here is blowing leaves all over Joe’s newly-swept floor. He’s been there for two years now. Working a dead-end attendant job making sure the building is as spotless as the suits walking the halls. It’s been like this for years, going from one soul-devouring job to the next.

Our protagonist is Joe in more than just name. He is quite literally Joe Average. Average height, average weight, average IQ. In fact, the only thing remotely remarkable about him is exactly how much he conforms to the median of the hypothetical everyman, and up until this point, Joe’s life hasn't exactly been biography material.

This is all about to change...
