Children of Silentown

Children of Silentown

Something sinister waits in the forest around the town, hunting the Children of Silentown. Can you save the children and put an end to the threat?

Elf Games and Luna2 Studio have partnered to bring us Children of Silentown, a hand drawn point and click adventure where you control Lucy. Lucy is a young girl who thinks she’s old enough to investigate the disappearances around her town. It’s up to you to prove her right! What’s interesting about this game is that it wasn’t a game during it’s inception. It was first an animated short that evolved into this game later on. I love that. You start with one version of the product and over several edits it is not the same as it was.

You start out being awoken by a nightmare and as most kids would do, you transition quickly into playing games with friends. The town is plagued by the monsters in the forest at night but during the day is quite peaceful. Can you save the town?

With it being a point and click adventure the controls are quite simple but at times you may have a couple items overlapping and selecting the correct one can get a little annoying. The story coupled with the art draws you in and leaves you wanting to know more. The game’s art style itself is captivating and I hope we see more from this team.
