Silence: The Whispered World 2 is now available on Nintendo Switch.

Daedalic Entertainment announced the game’s release with a new launch trailer, demonstrating the game’s beautiful visuals.

Silence follows the story of teenage boy Noah and his little sister Renie, who find themselves in a magical realm between life and death. The siblings meet several interesting characters as they fight to save the world of Silence and its inhabitants from death, including the magical caterpillar Spot. Check out the launch trailer below.

Daedalic CEO Carsten Fichtelmann explained the decision to port the game to Switch: “Silence is one of the most popular adventure games we’ve ever created, so bringing it to the Nintendo Switch was a no-brainer for us.”

Silence was originally released for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in November 2016, described as a “part sequel, part spin-off” of Daedalic’s 2009 adventure game The Whispered World.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’



Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
