Europe to experience the House of Tales’ Moment of Silence


Finally, French and the UK gamers may enjoy another hit by House of Tales! The Moment of Silence by the famous German developer, released last month in Germany by DtP and highly anticipated in other European countries, was made available for French and the UK users by leading national software providers. In France the Moment of Silence was published by Focus, and in the UK – by Digital Jesters, known for its success formula based on the product’s superior quality.

Players step into the shoes of Peter Wright, a communications designer currently working on the Government's 'Freedom of Speech' campaign. But when his neighbor’s apartment is stormed by a SWAT team, never to be seen again, Pete is drawn into a breathtaking world of corruption, power and global domination which will set hearts and minds racing.

The game marries fully-rendered, animated backdrops with a traditional adventure interface, resulting in one of the best-looking examples in the genre. Full motion video – created by the team that has worked on countless other games, including Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader – depict moments of high drama, putting the game on par with some of cinema's greatest thrillers.

Over eight hours of professional voice talent ensure the drama sounds as good as it looks, with over 35 characters appearing throughout the game. Traditional adventure puzzles are fused with dialogue choices and action sequences to create an adventure which is constantly challenging – and one that aims to reinvigorate the genre.

The title is released on StarForce-protected DVDs featuring advanced anti-piracy technologies by the leading international software protection solutions provider. According to the developer, the decision to use this particular copy protection was made as the technology allows to perform the disc check only once – when launching the game. This helps avoiding annoying disc checks and slow downs during the game play and provides reliable protection. To prevent the title’s piracy without sacrificing the product usability characteristics, the StarForce protection was used for all localized versions, including German, French and English.
