From local Brisbane-based indie developers Two PM, The Thin Silence is a new narrative adventure game about self exploration and discovery. Filtered through beautiful vistas, quiet contemplation, and even darkness. Due for release on PC and Mac on April 28, a percentage of each copy sold will go to CheckPoint - the non-profit dedicated to to providing support for and help raising awareness of mental health issues.
Inspired in part by the look and feel of Limbo and Knytt Stories, The Thin Silence follows the journey of Ezra from self-imposed exile to forgiveness and finally hope.
“When we started making The Thin Silence, we didn't know we were making a game about mental health. I wasn't really comfortable with that being a leading theme of the game for a lot of development. There's a lot of shame and fear about opening up about these things, video games are "fun" after all. Seeing Checkpoint's work is part of what made me feel like we could and should make a statement and share our perspectives.” – Ben Follington, Technical Director.
