After Daedalic Entertainment introducing the main protagonists of Silence, the siblings Noah and Renie, it’s now time to take a closer look at the secret hero of the upcoming adventure game: Spot, the faithful caterpillar.
This is why Spot. Not only is he the steady companion of the Noah and Renie, but also a Swiss Army Knife for all the puzzles they have to solve. As needed he can fly, split himself up or drink and spit liquids. He can also become a bridge to reach remote placed or a crowbar to clear the way from heavy rocks.
Take a look at all his abilities:
Big Spot: One of Spot’s main features is to suck in everything he can get close to his mouth. If this is air, the little caterpillar gets inflated and takes the shape of a ball. This can have multiple purposes, as letting him jump like a basketball, thrown him around and use him as a safety pillow for deep drops. Big Spot is so light that he can fly around like a hot-air balloon.
5er Spot: This is why Spot can divide himself into smaller versions of himself. This can be useful to sneak through cracks, but is also a handy trap against Lumis, evil creatures living in the underground.
Flat Spot: When Spot is not carrying anything in his belly, he is able to deflate himself and become really small. This lets him reach areas that are not accessible for Renie and Noah, but also strong enough to carry people and built bridges to inaccessible areas.
Fire Spot: Inflamed Spot can be used to set items on fire and bring light to the shadows of Silence.
Dragon Spot: But Spot is not only capable to suck in air, but also be a carrier of dangerous liquids like lava. He can then use the warm magma against the vegetation or use it to fix broken objects like stone statues.
Water Spot: If Spot is filled with water, he can be used as a watering pot. By pouring water over plants or mushrooms, they will grow and change the environment.
Honey Spot: Little Spot is also a sweet tooth and loves to be fed on honey. As soon as he is stuffed with the tasty nectar, he can hum in a meditativ way and calm a whole colony of Honey Ticks.
Helium Spot: Helium is the stuff that makes voices high and squeeky, but also the kind of noble gas that makes Spot weightless. That does not only make him fly around, but also invisible to everyone who crosses his way.
Acid Spot: Spot is capable to transport acids. What does it do? Players will have to find out for themselves.
Silence tells the story of Noah who is about to lose his little sister Renie to the perils of war. He barely manages to follow her into the world Silence. But even there war ravages the land. In search for his sister Noah joins a group of rebels who fights the false Queen.
Noah’s and Renie’s quest will lead them to a visually impressive and emotionally investing adventure, with many mysteries to unravel around the world of Silence.
Silence is scheduled to release during the second half of 2015 for PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One.
