Post-Release Update

Hey everyone!

Thank you so much to all of you who've played the game so far. We've been overwhelmed by just how well received the game has been by reviewers, streamers and players alike. We've had some wonderful reviews, and even scored an honourable mention at the 2018 Freeplay Awards (Australia's Independent Games Awards), which just blows us away.

It's been an absolutely crazy time, but we've got more good stuff coming from TwoPM Studios. There are some miscellaneous small changes in this update, the biggest being a new tracking system to fix some bugs & crashes. For anyone who is interested, we've also written a post-mortem about the release of The Thin Silence - you can have a peak behind the curtain and learn a little about the inner working and future plans of TwoPM.

Read the Post-mortem

We've got more behind the scenes writing planned and we're taking the time to consider our next projects.

Much love,
Ben & Ricky

About This Game

MEET EZRA WESTMARK

The Thin Silence is a narrative adventure game told through the introspection and recollection of Ezra Westmark. Inspired by games such as Limbo and Knytt Stories, follow the journey of Ezra from his self-imposed exile to forgiveness and hope.





The Thin Silence explores depression, self-doubt, struggles, and trials. Amongst the darkness, the game features that sound, that thin silence, which calls to us in our darkest hours. That sound we can’t hear or describe which somehow gives us the strength to try again and push through obstacles previously insurmountable.
It’s not a game about success.

It’s a game of enduring your worst moment and facing the next one. Walk with Ezra out of the darkness, uncovering the journey that led him there and the hope that leads him home.

EXPERIENCE THE STORY

• Enjoy 4-5 hours of unique and varied challenges driven by a fresh item-vs-environment interaction mechanic.
• Experience breathtaking vistas & quiet contemplation
• Uncover Ezra’s crisis and his journey back, finding answers and a little bit of yourself along the way
• Featuring a moving original score by LightFrequency
• Over 40 unique in-game documents
• Mostly believable hacking sequences

PROUD AFFILIATE OF





The Thin Silence has strong themes of depression, suicide and negative mental health. If you're going through a hard time, we can't promise miracles, but we do promise you hope. People don't cope sometimes. That's okay. But help isn't far away. So many people would love for you to get better.
