  • Very well written and beautifully presented, House on Fire's debut will absolutely thrill fans of darker, more mature science fiction.

  • Rich in style and atmosphere, with a compelling plot and nice minimalist graphics, The Silent Age is a solid attempt at the point-and-click adventure genre.

  • CD-Action

    Despite simple, even primitive puzzles The Silent Age’s gameplay is frustratingly slow and main character’s speed of a bug crawling through tar does not help. [09/2015, p.65]
