Hamburg/Munich, Germany: March 22nd, 2010. Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a leading producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, and Daedalic Entertainment, the “Studio of the Year 2009” in Germany, are proud to announce that the anticipated PC adventure game “The Whispered World” has gone gold. The game will be released in the UK, Scandinavia, Spain and Italy on April 23, 2010.
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. Hand-painted backgrounds filled with animated details and lovingly crafted characters in the style of classic animated movies like „Spirited Away” bring the story to life. “The Whispered World” mixes fairy-tale elements with melancholic tones to create a tale of epic proportions.
