Silence [official site], Daedalic's sequel to their adventure game The Whispered World, has arrived. Gosh, what a looker! Look at ↑ that! I couldn't tell you about its puzzling and I couldn't tell you if it's any good -- for that you'll likely want to play the demo yourself -- but I can tell you it's jolly pretty. More prettiness follows in the launch trailer:
I never played the first game but our John did, back in the days when our John was still moonlighting for Eurogamer (and rebuffing Bruce Willis). You can his Wot I Think (or, as Eurogamer call it, his 'review'? must be a Europeanese word) over here. In short, he said it's pretty, its adventure game logic is irritating, its writing is good, and its protagonist has a terrible voice. Hey, I can at least tell you that Sadwick isn't the only protagonist this time.
