Most companies are doing something for the holidays, usually sending out a video, but Daedalic Entertainment is going a tad further. Their present to the community is a little PC mini-game, called Silent Night.
Silent Night is a free download that’s been put together for the company’s upcoming adventure game, Silence: The Whispered World 2. It features two characters having a snow fight with a never-ending wave of enemies.
In this free download, the goal is simply to knock down as many opponents as possible, before they run over the two characters in the foreground. As scores stack up, waves will come in faster.
There are also birds flying overhead that can be pelted for extra points. It might be a bit tricky to aim, as the kids in the front don’t have a pitcher’s arm.
Daedalic stresses that Silent Night is not representative of what Silence will become.
Silence is the publisher’s first reach outside of its comfortable home of PC titles. It was announced in October that the sequel to The Whispered World will be headed to Xbox One as well.
Moreover, the adventure switches the drawn art style of old for new 3D visuals. It uses some clever camera angles and design tricks to build 2D illustrations into a universe with more depth.
Daedalic has also announced Blackguards 2, to extend its reach beyond the normal puzzle style. This sequel provides the company with another dark roleplaying game (RPG) with turn-based strategy combat.
Silence will be out in early 2015. Until then, have a silent night tonight.
