Chimera Entertainment has announced Songs of Silence, a new turn-based strategy game featuring real-time cinematic battles. Players will manage their kingdom on a grand scale and lead armies across two distinct worlds in single-player and multiplayer modes. Songs of Silence offers a fresh spin on card-based mechanics. Instead of collecting and building a deck, cards represent the unique actions granted by heroes and locations. Each faction and hero have their own distinct play style on the turn-based strategic map and in real-time combat.
In a beautiful fantasy realm torn between light and dark, two worlds with multiple sub-factions wage eternal war, ignorant to the growing threat of the life-devouring Silence. Command your faction and conquer your rivals through military might, subterfuge, or arcane means with a unique blend of turn-based kingdom management, exploration, real-time battles, meticulous decision-making, and card-based gameplay. Choose your heroes and lead them through a story-driven single-player campaign or competitive multiplayer, brought to life with vivid artwork, in addition to an epic score from acclaimed Final Fantasy Tactics composer Hitoshi Sakimoto.
“Songs of Silence is a true passion project for us, conceived all the way back in 2019. It took inspiration from some of our all-time favorites, such as Ogre Battle, Kohan, and Warlords. We want to focus on conquest and army management in a genuinely interesting fantasy world, with as much replayability as possible. A pure experience,” said Alexander Kehr, Creative Director at Chimera Entertainment.
