Silence of the Universe is a dark little narrative-driven Sci-Fi adventure that follows a lone scientist as he terminates a project that he’s dedicated his life to.
In Silence of the Universe you take on the role of a scientist who has been sent into his research facility to shut down and delete the files of a top secret project he’s been working on for years. The project could have provided the first meaningful communication from an intelligent alien species, but after over 10 years and a vast amount of resources, it’s been unfruitful.
As you explore the facility you’ll shut down equipment and erase the data as the scientist reflects on the project and the time he dedicated to it. The project clearly consumed him and took over his life, much to the detriment of his personal life. Now that the project is over he now has nothing to show for it.
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, it’s a beautifully told little story that tells the sad tale of a scientist’s obsession. There’s a real feeling of loss as you go from room to room shutting down equipment, causing whirring computers descend into an eerie silence. The mysterious aline message will just have to wait.
