Here are some new The Whispered World screenshots

7:40 PM on 04.17.2009 // Brad Nicholson

It’s been a long time since we’ve shared some The Whispered World screenshots or information with you guys. Deep Silver and Daedalic recently released three new images -- I’ve included seven others that we’ve missed -- and tossed out some hot new story information for the hand-drawn adventure title.

The game stars a melancholy clown named Sadwick and his little buddy, Spot. Daedalic describes the adventure they’ll take on as “epic.” Apparently, a king needs something rather important and he sends a messenger to, uh, deliever a message. The messenger bumps into Sadwick and Spot and they’re tangled in the king’s business from there on.  

I’m down the game’s art. Judging from these screens, The Whispered World is moody and lovingly crafted. Make sure to check out our gallery and drop me your two cents on the title. (PC only, unfortunately.)

The Whispered World: New images and characters unveiled

Hamburg/Munich, Germany: April 17th, 2009. Deep Silver and Daedalic are presenting brand-new images and new characters from “The Whispered World”. The fantasy adventure with its breathtaking imagery will be released later this year for PC.

In the autumnal forest, the first station of their epic journey, Sadwick and Spot meet Bobby who is camped out by the shore of the big lake. Looking quite inconspicuous, he turns out to be one of the chosen messengers of the king on a mission of utmost importance. But this presumptuous traveler's quest will soon go terribly awry…

In the second chapter, Sadwick finds himself on a nocturnal island whose inhabitants all seem to have fallen into a lethargic stupor. Most of all Ruben, who claims to rule the island and jumps in panic at every loud noise. In his chambers, he is guarding an enormous treasure which he amassed through his now closed-down factory.

His henchman Bando is very unhappy about this closure, because he loves nothing more than making loud noises, and is now forced into idleness. He is sitting in his hut, utterly depressed, and biding his time until he is finally allowed to work once more.

The beautiful adventure game “The Whispered World” whisks the player away to a fascinating fantasy world. Sadwick is a young clown but often far from cheerful. One night, a strange blue creature speaks to him in a dream, and sends him on an adventurous journey. Many dangers await Sadwick, for the world he knows is doomed to crumble and fall.

In classic point & click tradition, gamers steer Sadwick and his companion Spot through the game. Little Spot never leaves Sadwick’s side and is integral to solving many puzzles. He can take on many different forms throughout the game, which the player can pick and choose at will, once they have been learned. Hand-painted backgrounds filled with animated details and lovingly crafted characters in the style of classic animated movies like „Spirited Away” bring the story to life. “The Whispered World” mixes fairy-tale elements with melancholic tones to create a tale of epic proportions.

"At launch, playing through most of the single player content will give you enough Fight Money to get Alex for free!" Will it be possible to earn enough FC by April for the next character DLC? I'm guessing not.

Right, looking for advice. Just redeemed four old XCOM games from a humble bundle a few years back, so I wanted advice on which one I should give a looksie to first. Got 5 choices, kind of thinking terror from the deep or apocalypse. Any suggestions?

I'm soooo glad that they kept the gyroscope controls intact with Gravity Rush Remastered, and that they work well. First Dual Shock 4 game to ever use them well. If you turned them off in options, you're really missing out. Helps you fine tune aim.
