  • The Thin Silence to Donate 10 Cents for Every Copy Sold to Mental Health Awareness

    PM Studios and Nkiduo Games Inc. have partnered with the non-profit organization, CheckPoint, to help raise awareness for mental health. The partnership will find 10 cents of every copy purchased of The Thin Silence being donated to the charity.

    CheckPoint Organisation Ltd is a not-for-profit organization which connects mental health resources with video games and technology. More information about CheckPoint can be found on their website at https://checkpoint.org.au/.

    “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 will be released to Early Access on Steam, Itch.io, and Humble for PC and OS X come April 27, 2018.

    • Experience breathtaking vistas and quiet contemplation.
    • Featuring a moving original score by LightFrequency.
    • Over 40 unique in-game documents.
    • Mostly believable hacking sequences.

    Quick TGN E3 2018 Wrap Up

    E3 was last week and I do believe the dust has finally settled. I decided, for my own sanity really, to try to take things a bit slower this year with getting news up from the event. This was...
