Britsoft publisher Digital Jesters has announced that, following consultation with adventure games fans the world over, the UK, Scandinavian, Benelux and South African retail version of its staggering cinematic adventure The Moment of Silence will come on DVD-only.
But those without the appropriate hardware needn't worry: a version spanning four CDs will be exclusively available online, direct from DJ's Website.
The decision to issue a DVD-only version to retail was taken after Digital Jesters surveyed the biggest adventure games Websites in the world.
"We take our fans' opinions very seriously," says Leo Zullo, marketing director, Digital Jesters, "but the survey results were pretty conclusive, so we've naturally opted to give them what they want. Digital Jesters is all about fostering community spirit, and our fans seem genuinely impressed we took the time to find out more from them – and we're confident they're going to like what they see."
The Moment Of Silence is a graphical adventure set in the not-too-distant 2044. A believable backdrop of a global government ruled by massive corporations sets the scene for a conspiracy tale woven with luxurious extravagance. With 75 locations designed by award-winning CG artists and eight hours of professional voice acting that uses cutting edge lip synchronisation technology, The Moment Of Silence promises to showcase cinematic production values.

About Digital Jesters
Founded in 2003, Digital Jesters is a British-based publisher of computer and video games. Set up by the duo responsible for launching and establishing the Sudden Strike and Cossacks series of games in the UK, the firm's remit is simple: to source and publish the best games available. The company's commitment to originality resulting in it snapping up the original TrackMania game from French developer Nadeo and DJ's ethos of community development strategy resulted in the game becoming one of the sleeper hits of the year. A tie-in with record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen Macarthur for the firm's second release Virtual Skipper 3 ensured the game received widespread attention among the elusive non-gamer, and firmly placed the publisher on the map. The firm has enjoyed three top 10 PC hits and is expanding its operation to cover additional territories. It has also published its own comic book to widespread critical acclaim.
