You can now unravel the mystery of Silentown in the Tim Burton inspired story-driven adventure Children of Silentown, available now on PC and consoles. In case you missed our review, we had a great time with Children of Silentown, stating: “Children of Silentown delivers a compelling story told through stunning hand-drawn graphics and spearheaded by a hauntingly beautiful score that perfectly encapsulates the feelings of melancholy and dread that pervade Lucy’s thoughts. Silentown’s unique focus on discovering notes to uncover songs which can then be used to unlock puzzles provides a new dynamic to the point-and-click genre, and despite having gripes with one of the puzzle types, I still enjoyed my time unraveling the mystery of Silentown and the monsters that haunt it.” You can check out the release trailer above and read below for more details and to view our gameplay video:
