Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Songs of Silence is a pivotal game for Chimera Entertainment. It’s not only the most ambitious title we’ve ever created; it’s the first time we’ve created a unique world from scratch. We want to make sure this project takes as much feedback from fans on board before launch as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate the Early Access phase will continue for 4 to 5 months. We have a rough plan of what needs to be accomplished before releasing the finished product (which you can find below). Still, we value the feedback we receive from our players and are willing to dedicate extra time to incorporate their suggestions.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Whilst we plan for the Early Access build to include all the important features and mechanics from the full release, we intent on having marked improvements in the full version. We plan to release a full game with 8 campaign maps compared to four in Early Access, as well as extra multiplayer & skirmish maps; additional quality of life features and extended game modes (modifiers for multiplayer, difficulty levels as example); better game balancing, and incorporated player feedback on QoL adjustments from players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access candidate of the game is currently in the Beta state: most features and content are done - but we are adding more maps in both single and multiplayer. We are currently running a closed beta to verify the game.
Some of the player feedback collected through the demo and Closed Beta has not yet been implemented or is still being worked on. The game is still being optimized for performance.
The four campaign maps for Early Access are in final testing right now, while the last 4 campaign maps (the target for Full Release) are still in Beta and require iteration and stabilization.

For the complete list of features included in the Early Access, please consult the "About This Game" section on the game's page.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We do not plan to increase the price after Early Access. However, seasonal discounts may be available during Early Access, including a launch discount for early adopters.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We test all updates before releasing them to the public. To facilitate this, we are currently running a closed beta, which is accessible to nearly 1,000 beta testers. Anyone can apply for beta tester status to join the closed beta.

We value and analyze all feedback on all our channels, including an official Discord server where we interact with the Community daily. We have an in-game crash reporting tool and a public bug tracker with upvoting functionality to address potential bugs. Additionally, we will work with our Community to create an official Songs of Silence Wiki.”

Reviews

“Songs Of Silence is probably the most gorgeous auto battler I've ever played. Except that's doing it a misservice, because it's a lot more than an auto battler. It's a curious mix of genres - part Battle For Wesnoth, part Songs Of Conquest, part Clash Of Clans. And all wrapped up with some wonderful presentation, music, and a minimalist but competently voice-acted story which swept me into its world almost immediately.”
RockPaperShotgun

“Songs of Silence is repainting the strategy genre in gorgeous technicolor. You can forget the staid, drab medieval fantasy of many other strategies, and revel instead in the excesses and bold brushstrokes that the team at Chimera Entertainment have crafted.”
The Sixth Axis

“Songs of Silence will offer an exciting fantasy world with lots of interesting facets to it. All of this is rendered in stunning illustrations that I wanted to stare at for much longer than I was allowed to in this session.”

About This Game


Songs of Silence is a fantasy 4X strategy game for PC and console which marries deep, tactical gameplay with fast-paced autobattles and an engaging, compelling narrative. Presented in a unique graphical style derived from the Art Nouveau movement, Songs of Silence is a beautiful example of the evolution of a classic genre.The game features an extensive singleplayer, narrative driven campaign, plus several competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes for endless replay value!





Two worlds – two races – one fate!

On the advent of light, the Gods waged war and tore the world asunder.

Two weaker worlds emerged: One of Light and one of Dark.

A new human civilization arose from the ashes of the defeated Firstborn: The Starborn, led by their guiding star. A bright age of enlightenment followed.

Peace would not last - The unstable worlds birthed all-consuming Purgatories. Soon, people started to wage war over what land remained. The chaotic Age of a Thousand Kings begins.

The Silence continues to spread, relentless and unstoppable. Today, both worlds are on the brink of ruin. The fate of many now rests in the hands of a few.






Classic 4X Strategy

Lead powerful armies conscripted from a roster of over 100 units as you explore beautiful handmade singleplayer campaigns and custom multiplayer maps. Outwit your opponents by laying deadly ambushes in deep forest or march right up to their front gates and lay siege to their cities. Manage hard-won resources to rebuild a ravaged realm and defeat your rival kingdoms as you search for a new homeland.

Innovative battle system

Play intense, fast-paced battles as the armies of the realms clash in vicious combat. Set your formation and prepare to engage the enemy, using tactical orders, reinforcements, and divine interventions to turn the tide of conflict.

Three distinct, powerful factions

Each faction and hero has their own distinct play style, both on the strategic map and in battle. With over 100 units and hundreds of card effects: from celestial summons to burning down entire cities, your options are nearly limitless.



Beautiful, Art Nouveau inspired graphics

Fuelled by the work of Alphonse Mucha and other proponents of the Art Nouveau style, Songs of Silence bucks the 4X strategy trend of muddy maps and dour, anonymous units by bringing beautiful, colorful visuals to the genre - strategy doesn’t have to be ugly!







Cards of Fate
Songs of Silence offers a fresh take on cards. Instead of collecting and building a deck of cards which are dealt in hands, cards in Songs of Silence represent unique actions granted by heroes and locations. These are then played on the campaign map or during our real-time battles to influence outcome via troop orders, status effects or direct damage.


The game's atmospheric soundtrack is composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto, the famous artist behind all-time favorites such as Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy 12, and Valkyria Chronicles.
