Two PM Studios, with Nkidu Games Inc. have announced a partnership between the studio’s first upcoming major title, The Thin Silence, and non-profit organization, CheckPoint. The partnership, which includes donating 10 cents to charity for each copy of the game sold, aims to aid CheckPoint in their mission to provide support and help raise awareness on mental health issues.
“When we started making The Thin Silence, we didn’t know we were making a game about mental health. I wasn’t really comfortable with that being a leading theme of the game for a lot of development. There’s a lot of shame and fear about opening up about these things, video games are “fun” after all. Seeing Checkpoint’s work is part of what made me feel like we could and should make a statement and share our perspectives.” – Ben Follington, Technical Director
Explore with Ezra, coming across interesting usable items, combining them with other items to make new and useful tools, and employ them to navigate the platforms and puzzles of Ezra’s world. 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.
The Thin Silence offers 5 hours of unique and varied gameplay challenges driven by a fresh item-vs-environment interaction mechanic. Experience breathtaking vistas and quiet contemplation, featuring a moving original score by LightFrequency, with over 40 unique in-game documents.
The Thin Silence will be available on Steam, Itch, and Humble in Early Access for Windows PC and Mac OSX on April 27, 2018.
