Description
Release date: Q3 2016
The road before you is dark as the skies open up, so it’s time to pay close attention to everything you hear. Beware the Silence!

Silence is a thrilling and adventurous sci-fi puzzle game where anyone could be at risk while you move forward. Keep as close an eye as you can and try to match their moves! And don’t lose your head, because you might not be prepared for the mysteries that are hidden from us.

Listen carefully, because Silence awaits! (Headphones are recommended)

A videogame that started as a pixel-art challenge has now become something blown out of proportion. While you're minding your own business, you start pursuing a creature that runs into the darkness. Thing is, you can't see any of the obstacles... while they can. That's why you must use them as a reference, copy their moves, and try to keep up.

Features:
  1. Discover the paths leading to different endings through these dark hallways.
  2. Find new surprises in each procedurally generated level.
  3. Earn Achievements for finishing the game, surviving Endurance Mode, completing 10 levels in a row, and several other conditions.
  4. Experience a game where you can’t see, and discover the truth .
  5. Run across different levels with multiple settings and background noises.
  6. Unlock Endurance Mode after completing the game.
  7. Soon to be compatible with dance pads as well!

I wanna like this game, as it's always nice to see new games coming from South America, and also I appreciate the Linux support. But, well, it's just not fun at present :/ The first few levels feel far too long, since you can clearly see what the alien was doing, which made things trivial. Maybe it would improve with a faster pace, but it all feels painfully slow.

The last level spiced it up a bit, but it's still basically noise based Dance Dance Revolution, except you play /with/ DDR, your successes and screw ups are immediately rewarded or penalized. When I made a mistake in this game I often knew before the alien finishes, and since the FF and Retry buttons didn't work I'd have to sulkily wait for my character to lose.

I'm curious as to what you have in mind for the games future, as the core gameplay does not leave me impressed. As it stands, I wouldn’t recommend selling this, especially if it's your first game (I noticed there was no other games under that Itchio account).

@Mr.MadCat42: Thanks for the feedback! Please keep in mind that the demo doesn't include all the features. Later levels include new gameplay elements, they aren't just longer. And yes, the tutorial does indeed need some more work.

Very interesting idea.
However I wonder how you are going to keep it interesting after the first few levels. During the last levels of the demo the gameplay seemed to become a bit repeptitiv. Maybe you can play a bit with sound related events to make it a bit mor interesting. Just making the sequences longer/faster won't be as interesting I think. Maybe you can do semthing dynamic and not just repeat the alien's moves.
Also the tutorial needs some rework I think. I really didn't get that I had to press the correct button during the alien's walk in the first level. I somehow thought I could press any button there and was supposed to press the correct button during my walk. Maybe try to make that clearer.
