The story has the right amount of mystery! The puzzles are clever and the gameplay is a simple point-and-click. I would recommend because of the travelling between past and future or for it's short story.

This game is enjoyable from start to finish. I'll probably re-install it and try to play the whole thing in one sitting about a year from now to test my memory of how to solve the puzzles.

Very well done point-and-clicky game about time travel. It has many references to Back to the Future and a pretty good story involving time travel causality etc.

I had lots of fun during the 6 hour playthrough. Only issue is that the devs seems to have cut few corners with animation. Most object when activated/used fade from one state to another instead of displaying any animations.

Nonetheless - I recommend if you like time travel and point-and-clicks!

This is a good short game with easy achievement to collect, still has some good amount of puzzles to solve.
It's that kind of game needs no skills, mouse clicking and that's all, but still a time killer thing.

I'd recommend the game for those who want full achievments, or like puzzles and travelling between past and future.

Could have been a really cool game. I liked the visual style a lot, and the overall plot had some good ideas, but at the end of the day it was just a boring slog of a game, where I didn't really spend time solving puzzles, I was just trying to figure out what the hell they wanted me to click on. Don't bother.

The story has the right amount of mystery, tension and dialogs. Enough to create an atmoshere and keep you interested until the end.
The puzzles in this game are not difficult, you figure them out quite fast, but the solutions are always logical. As a bonus, the character gives plenty of fun comments.
The main gameplay feature is time traveling between the present and the future in order to see how things have changed and to find items for puzzle solving.
The graphic style is also worth mentioning, as it is really well done.

I would definitely recommend this game, even for those who does not usually play Point & Click games.

This game a lot of fun! Don't start playing before bed though, the story is very engaging and sucks you in! Simple but clean graphics make it very aesthetically pleasing to the eye! There's usually no music which sets the mood very nicely for the story! It's set into chapters which I'm eternally grateful for, or I wouldn't have been able to stop myself from playing all the way through! If you like adventure, exploration, puzzles and a really good story line, buy this game!

it was an interesting story
a good puzzle game playd with a ''change time and find other tings on the same place'' mechanic, with a twist.
i found the puzzles kinda eazy, even tho i'm silly and overthinked and totaly ignored few of the simplest of the solutions of some puzzles, serriusly i got stuck cuz i didn't notice that the door was open -_- (only spoilerfree sillyness i can share)

The Silent Age has a great story. The story isn't the most original but it is a great piece of entertainment. I would recommend this game for anyone who likes a good Sci-fi story.

Fantastic game. Despite my very few likeness with puzzle/point-and-click genre, The SIlent Age caugh my eye for a pretty nice story, 70's themed style, humor, nice art, and all time travel kind of stuff you can imagine. And that's exactly what it is. It's an intriguing story, very addicting and attractive, with many plots and twists. If you like good stories, time travel, 70s, good art and silly humor, this is a game for you. Short, surely, but nice to have some fun. I'd recommend buying when in promotion though, not that the game isn't worthy, but I bought for -75%.

(PT-BR)

Jogo fantástico. Apesar de gostar pouco do gênero puzzle/point-and-click, The Silent Age me chamou atenção por uma história bem legal, a temática dos anos 70, humor, artisticamente bem feito, e tudo que imaginar sobre viagem no tempo. E é exatamente o que o jogo é. Uma intrigante história, atrativa e viciante, com diversos enredos e surpresas. Se gosta de boas histórias, viagem no tempo, anos 70 e humor bobo, esse é o jogo. Curto, é verdade, mas digno de diversão. Recomendaria comprar quando em promoção, no entanto, não que o jogo não venha a valer o preço que comumente custa, mas comprei com 75% de desconto.

The best way to describe this game is It's fun, short and simple. Puzzles are not hard to solve, story was interesting, eventhough the story deals with 'Time Travel' theme it's easy to understand and enjoy the story.

Liked:

-Captivating story
-Logical puzzles
-Pickup objects have slightly different color than the background objects, eliminating the need for "pixel hunting".
-Music, lightning and artwork work together to pull you in the story
-Simple gameplay, no need to mess around with a huge inventory, backtracking is limited to few nearby scenes so you don’t have to travel all over the place unlike some traditional point & click games.

Not Liked:

- Sometimes the character gets “teleported” to new location for story purposes instead of allowing the player to guide the character to the location. Furthermore, sometimes the character refuses to go back to a previous area (even though the area is physically accessible), resulting in the feeling that the player is not in control from time to time. My advice to the developer is to be consistent in your approach: if you don’t want a player to go back, physically block him, don’t teleport the player but instead guide them to the new location via puzzles.
