FOR RELEASE: 7/18/2019


Brescia, Italy – July 18, 2019 Italian developer Elf Games released today the first trailer for their upcoming game Children of Silentown, scheduled to be released in the next few months. Elf Games, who previously worked on the vibrant, colorful Little Briar Rose, are about to explore the dark side of fables with a creepy, unsettling story. The trailer and first in-game screenshots are available on the newly released Steam page. The game is planned to be released on PC and consoles. More will be revealed in the future.


“The concept for the game came from our friends at Luna2 studio, an awesome YouTuber duo specialized in shorts and animation movies,” said Piero Dotti of Elf Games. “They showed us a short movie they had yet to release, and we immediately fell in love with it.


About the game


Children of Silentown is a dark adventure game that tells the story of Lucy, a young girl growing up in a village deep into a forest inhabited by monsters. People disappearing is nothing uncommon in the village, but this time, Lucy is old enough to investigate on her own. Or so she thinks.

  • Explore Silentown in search of hints, but beware: do not enter the forest.

  • A unique, unsettling 2D art style fitting for a mysterious, dark tale.

  • Music plays a crucial role, and learning how to sing will help Lucy in times of need.

  • Combine items to obtain widely unexpected results!


WISHLIST NOW the game to keep up to date with all the news about the dark fable of Silentown.
