ABOUT THE GAME
The beautiful adventure game “The Whispered World” whisks the player away to a fascinating fantasy world. Sadwick is a young clown but often far from cheerful. One night, a strange blue creature speaks to him in a dream, and sends him on an adventurous journey. Many dangers await Sadwick, for the world he knows is doomed to crumble and fall.
In classic point & click tradition, gamers steer Sadwick and his companion Spot through the game. Little Spot never leaves Sadwick’s side and is integral to solving many puzzles. He can take on many different forms throughout the game, which the player can pick and choose at will, once they have been learned. Fantastic backgrounds filled with animated details and intriguing characters that evoke animated movies bring the story to life. The Whispered World mixes fairy-tale elements with an epic tale.
