    "Back and forward in time, and there's no McFly"

    The Silent Age puts players on Joe’s shoes, a humble janitor of a faceless governement building. An average man, with a regular life, focused on his work. It’s 1972, the world keeps turning and everything seems to run as expected. Joe’s life is about to change though. One day, suddenly, Joe finds a dying man coming 2012 (40 years forward) who warns him about an extinction level event set in motion by greedy halfwits which is going to finish off mankind

    The full weight of responsibility falls on Joe when the mysterious man gives Joe a portable time travel device an pleads him to save the world. Now, the fate of the world lies on Joe's hands, a John Doe wearing a janitor jumpsuit. Time travel will become the only way for Joe to get some clues about what to do next. However, anything he does in the past automatically changes the future: you'll be soon trapped in this space-time logic. A gift to fans of the Sci-Fi genre.

    The Silent Age - Episode 1 scenery combines side-view and classic point-and-click adventure's environments with a contemporary indie touch. Well-crafted simple graphics and an intriguing soundtrack that gets you hooked from the very first moment. In addition, the game is endowed with witty dialogues and lots of puzzles to bring the best of a classic genre to your mobile device.

    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...
