Release: The Whispered World

It takes a young, sad circus-clown to end the world and save it.
The Whispered World, an enchanting adventure of boy-clown Sadwick and his caterpillar friend Spot, is available on GOG.com for $14.99.
Sadwick is a twelve-year old with a melancholic vein. He not only dislikes the circus, where he lives with his brother and grandpa, and his normal life, where he cannot travel and explore the world, but also, he’s just been told in a prophetic dream that the world is coming to an end, and it’s his fault. And even though Sadwick is not happy with the way things are going for him, he is not going to let the world simply collapse without a fight. This sad clown will travel through four game acts, with his caterpillar friend Spot, to the King’s Castle in Corona to prevent the beautiful but perilous world of Silentia from sliding into destruction.
This is just a beginning of an engaging and emotional dreamlike game starring this uncommon but sympathetic pair trying to save everything that exists. The graphics are suited for a fairy-tale: absolutely stunning hand-drawn scenery and animated cartoon characters. The orchestral score is wonderful, and it only adds to the magical experience of the whole. Subtle humor, usually coming from Sadwick’s cynical comments, strange encounters, otherworldly locations, and imaginative riddles guarantees an unforgettable adventure. The Whispered World is an enchanted point-and click with twists and turns to hold you occupied for days. The game won "Best German Game of the Year,” and is an excellent adventure game for all ages.
Pick it up on GOG.com now for only $14.99.
