Brace yourself for a story of darkness and peril! 400 years ago, the Thirty Years’ War plunged Europe into chaos. Today, Inkborne Tales will resurrect its shadows before your eyes – When Silence Fell, our debut interactive novel, is now available for your mobile devices!
Having worked on major titles as game designers and writers in the past, we – Max Niebuhr and Daria Döpper – are now combining our skills to create a perfect marriage of compelling fiction and the gritty reality of the Thirty Years’ War.
Follow Sophia into the 17th century, as her diary opens up a window through time and space. War is consuming the German Lands with an endless, voracious appetite, tearing the lives of thousands apart. Witness how she maneuvers through its hardships and sorrows, face tough decisions, guide her along the way and become her trusted friend.
But whatever you do, choose wisely. Sophia’s struggle for life and freedom can lead her onto substantially different paths and whenever you reach a crossroad you can always check the game’s integrated wiki to learn about what might lie ahead. The decisions you make in this first of three episodes will have an irrevocable impact on the young woman and her fellows. It will be your shared journey and Sophia’s fate lies within your hands.
