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...

    Not much for too much! First episode is OK. Easy puzzles, though interesting story - I managed to finish it in half an hour and then they ask for £4 for second episode... Really? Sorry guys but that's the price of games like final fantasy not some minor, home made app... Try to earn some name first and then money - just a friendly advice. Full Review

    Beautiful It's a fun game. While you might end up not figuring out what comes next, the difficulty is just right. The graphics are amazing, too. It's very appropriate for the game. But I will be honest, the price for Episode 2 is a bit steep for me. Don't get me wrong, I would gladly pay for it. Sadly, I do not have any source of income yet which is why I can't pay for the next episode yet. But, even so, I commend the developers for giving us a free portion of the game. I definitely recommend this game. Full Review

    It has one of the best stories of the games that I have played till now. I liked the way we switch between past and present to find objects and open doors and stuff. It took me about 6 hours in total divided equally into 4 days to explore everything and tech the ambulance at the end of the first chapter. Loved the cutscene after that as well. I haven't bought the next episode yet but I will definitely sooner or later. Full Review

    A big fan of this point and click adventure; love the graphics and story! A lot of folks are complaining about the steep price of the game. The first part is free, you pay for the second if you want to continue. Imagine the amount of effort and time that goes into making a game with a well written story and pleasing graphics. I honestly felt the $5 is justified. Please make more games like this! 💙 Full Review

    This game is very immersive, with good graphics and soundtrack, a great story, nice controls and good puzzles. The only defect is the short time of the subtitles. Sometimes I could not read because the text disappeared too fast, so I needed to click again to continue reading. It seems something easy to fix. I recommend you to try the game, and if you like it, get the second part. Full Review

    Worth The Money This game is absolutely worth the price. Great story and art direction, casually challenging puzzles. If you rent sci-fi flicks, spend an evening playing through this game instead. I... I mean... a friend pirated it first and still had to come back and pay for it. It's that enjoyable! Full Review

    Best game I've played all year! I love the smoothness of the gameplay. Great details and a good story. I found Part 1 of the game reasonably easy to complete. Paying £4 to unlock Part 2 won't happen anytime soon as it's too expensive. If the developer's add new Parts & concepts to the story, included in the £4 spend. This would make a great game to buy. Part 2 came out 2 years ago, are there going to be anymore parts or is this it? Full Review

    Great puzzle/point and click adventure! The storyline got me hooked instantly, and I picked up on what to do in a reasonable time. One thing though: The header image says Episode 1 & Episode 2. While yes it's in the game, you gotta pay $5 for it. Would've been nice to know before downloading. And before I got really invested in this story... Full Review

    Very well done, great atmosphere and feeling to the game, but there's one main thing that kind of ruins the game for me. It's too short. I mean sure, it'll last you an afternoon of playing, but the story simply doesn't last long. You can't play it over, either, because you know all the solutions. Not worth the $5 for the full version.

    I thought this was fun, but I got stuck I got frustrated after the first 10 minutes, and relied on a walkthru at least 6 separate times, just to reach the end. This has a cool story, and while I didn't like the characterization of the protagonist, that is just a personal preference for someone less "modern", but otherwise, the plot is cool. The art is amazing. If you're willing to pay for the next two chapters, this is amazing, you should download it right now. Personally, I'm fine leaving it just here. But you should totally give this one a try Full Review

    Interesting storyline and cool graphics. I like that this game is challenging and makes you think about how to solve its puzzles. You do have to pay $5 for Part II but I think it is well worth it. I was engaged the entire time. The only downfall: I just wish the gameplay was longer! You can easily beat the entirety of this game in a few hours. Still one of my favorite games that I've played. Full Review

    Nice concept with the ability to go back and forth in time within the same scene. You collect tools and objects to solve puzzles. It does get a bit repetitive and I didn't even buy the next chapter. However the story is intriguing and I do want to find out what happens. Graphics and design are impeccable! Definitely worth trying Full Review

    Amazing This is an amazing game. Blew me away for a cellphone game. The visuals, storyline, audio are superb. Love that its set in the 70's, and done right too! between the characters hair, the cop car, lava lap. etc. I would love to see more games downnthe pipe... Maybe an 80's Manhunter style game next?

    One of the best story lines in app games. I loved this game. It's unique, it has got a capturing, mysterious atmosphere created by great graphics and mood music. And not least it has a brilliant story line. The walking back and forth between rooms could at times be a bit tedious, but the overall experience is five stars. Make more! Full Review

    One of, if not the, best mobile game I've ever played. Just finished 2nd play through and loved it just as much. The humour is great and the story is epic in its scope. Great twist at the end! Better than Broken Sword etc and much more innovative. Highly recommend. Full Review

    Really cool so far. LOVE his responses to things when you try to use items in a ridiculous way. I do it on purpose sometimes just to see what he'll say. 😅 Just got to stage 4 and enjoying it. It could be a little more exciting in terms of puzzles that could be solved, or a slight element of danger. I do like easy games because life is hard enough. But I feel like a little something is missing from this one. TBD. Full Review

    Published date: July 30, 2017

    Good but fairly easy. If you like storytelling games you'll like this. If you're looking for a challenge, note that this game is easier than escape the room games. And $5 does seem like a lot compared to similar games. Also, there is no Google games integration, so no save game. Not sure if the game ever stops you from playing levels though. Full Review

    Wow. I did not expect a phone game to be SO good. I was only supposed to check it out before going to bed. It was so good it made me stay until 5am (from about 2am). I only wish it were longer as it is just perfect. Third part, please? Full Review

    It has great graphics and easy puzzles. Humor is sorta decent. Story has white threads. If you ever played old school Lucas arts games like Indiana Johnes and the fate of Atlantis for example and it being 10 out of 10 Silent Age is 5 at most. Full Review

    Aneesa D Published date: February 11, 2017

    Its a well made game but you need to pay for the extra episode in order to really get into it. You get excited only to be let down! If your willing to spend 5$ on a game than this may be the game for you because it definitly seems good. But i just don't understand why they didnt just advertise it as 5$ to begin with. Full Review

    Keyonni Williams Published date: November 17, 2017

    Great game. I really am enjoying it and am at the half-way point of episode 2. My only complaint is sound (it might just be my phone). Whenever a text message or call comes through, when it ends, the sound on my game is now mute with no option to turn back on. I need to exit the app and reload in order to restore sound. Really irritating. Other than that, no other complaints. Full Review

    Lisa Ebe Published date: October 24, 2016

    Very enjoyable I found this an extraordinarily fun game that I would definitely recommend to others. Great storyline, delightful sense of humor and nice graphics. Would have been five stars, except: it seemed like every single puzzle involved tedious walking back and forth between distant rooms (was that just me?), and it made my phone run extremely hot (I couldn't even hold it sometimes). So owners of non-powerful phones, be wary. Everyone else, don't hesitate to download. Full Review

    at first i wasn't sure it would be worth it to buy the second episode for 5 bucks but man it definitely was. it's a very cool concept and well executed. the controls add a now layer of complexity that make it fun. i wish i could spoil the end but all i can say is that i was very very satisfied. the developers made sure to keep it realistic with the times (the first episode takes place in the 1970's i believe) and it makes it very satisfying knowing it is realistic in how a disaster would play out. 10/10 would recommend. the only thing i might consider mentioning thats slightly negative is that there's no hint button. thinking it over, i get why there is none, but it gets frustrating at times, and ive had to look up a walkthrough a couple of times to find that i was missing something simple. so if youre not good at solving things with no help, consider a walkthrough. ;3 Full Review

    This is an incredible game. I loved the first one but the second one is amazing. £4 is a steal for an immersive two-part adventure like this. The story line is well thought out and there are so many twists and turns in terms of the plot. And the dialogue and voices are great too. Joe is such a hero! Full Review

    Amir Nikouyee Published date: September 17, 2017

    I really liked this game. In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with the game. Just one thing though. The second episode should be free and also, when I finished the first episode, I couldn't go back to the back. Like, each time I tried to enter the app, there would just be a black screen. But that's probably just me. Full Review

    Bullshit you get through the 1st episode and think you found 2 and it doesn't say anything about paying for it until you start the game!!! I would've bought it if they said it upfront before I installed it Full Review

    laurence read Published date: February 28, 2018

    A great game that I got instantly hooked on. The storyline is great, and the second episode, whilst expensive, is well worth it. If you consider that the fiver is for both parts, it's not that much. People complain about paying for this but the workmanship is amazing and well worth paying for. I agree with other reviews that I'd have liked more of an ending, or even an episode 3! Full Review

    Hmm.. Didn't quite like the ending. Too simple. Also no explanation about Lambert. Please make Silent Age 2 and add some more conspiracy to it. For a great story with such a great potential, it has to have a sequel Full Review

    This gane is full of mystery and wonder. I really enjoyed playing it. The graphics are great and the storyline is very nice. It gets you to think and challenges you. The only bad thing is that the second epidode of the game costs money and I can't buy it even though I really wanted to. Full Review

    Wow now that was definitely worth it. Problem solving where you're required to alter things in the past to get what you need... great story, characters, and the game makes you think outside the box to solve situations. Need more games like this. Would definitely pay for another. Full Review

    Amber Hendrix Published date: March 26, 2017

    Loved the game, but it's not long enough to pay $5.00 for, I learned that the hard way unfortunately. Just stop once you finish the free chapters. Hopefully they come out with more chapters for the paid version. Full Review

    Spent the day with family playing both episodes on chrome cast. Such a great mystery/puzzle sci-fi game. Very impressive for an app. Reminds me a little of Flashback on SNES. I hope they come out with more episodes or more games like this! Full Review

    Rachael Burger Published date: January 12, 2017

    Great game- disappointing ending Such a fun, addicting game, with great visuals, intriguing story (until the end), and intuitive controls. *SPOILER* The major twist is actually the problem. With Joe being patient zero, everything we have done thus far through the game is useless. It is not explained what changed, if anything, and thus makes no sense that there are people still alive in the 2000s. Full Review

    Danielle D Published date: March 18, 2018

    This is a great point & click game that has that old school feel to it. The storyline was good and the puzzles were pretty easy. My only complaint, and the reason why I did not rate it 5 stars, is because I felt that for the $5 needed to purchase part 2 of this game, there was just not quite enough content or gameplay to justify the cost (maybe knock off a couple bucks...)!?! This is of course my own opinion, and if it comes right down to it, I would say that if you have the money to spare, you love point & click games, and you really enjoyed part 1 than you probably should purchase part 2 of this game! If nothing else, it could possibly add a few hours of enjoyment to your life! :-D Full Review

    These are the kinds of games that deserve to be supported by your wallet. I would say it's equal value to seeing a good movie. Very polished, clever writing, great concept and decent length for the money. The story kept me guessing with some great payoffs. The end is unexpected and satisfying - surprised I haven't come across the idea in other stories as it seems like an obvious one. Full Review

    This game is kinda like a mind game. I love it! Too bad a thirteen year-old like me couldn't afford part 2. I'd have to wait for a month to forget how to finish the game so I could play it again. Full Review

    James Willis Published date: November 3, 2016

    Was a great first game, then they had to ask for donations for episode 2 afterwards... fair enough. But now they're charging for episode 2 of a game that was already paid for by it's fans? That's cheap. Edited to reply to developer's response: Yes, I do think it's fair that some people can get it for free even after others have donated. That's the very definition of donation. It's not a donation if you can only get the product by donating. Some visitors pay donations to free museums and art galleries. Does that mean I should have to pay to get a ticket to see inside? No, because then it's not a donation, it's an entrance fee. If fans have to pay for episode 2, at least stop referring to it as donations, because that's clearly not what it is. Full Review

    Great all around If you play puzzle adventure games like this one, you're familiar with how often they seem random. Where you find objects, and how you use them often feel unrelated to the story. Not here. Two worlds are presented and tightly woven together for a superior game experience. Throw in the top notch graphics, strong plot, good sense of humor and great voice acting ... what more could you want?! Full Review

    "Demoted to 2 stars due to inaction to my complaint." I played this a year ago. Now I got a new phone, got the game again and purchased the EP2 via load. Had to remove it so I can install it in my tablet which it couldn't because no space, reinstalled it again on my phone and for some reason, I couldn't restore my purchase. Please do something about this. I really liked your game and haven't even started EP2 yet. Full Review

    Great fun, traditional adventure game. Definitely worth the in app purchase. Only reason I didnt give 5 stars is because there is a sound bug if a notification sound plays, all game audio is muted until the app is restarted, slightly annoying but the fun wasnt too affected. Best adventure game app I have played to date. Full Review
