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.

“There is no better partner for publishing and distribution in the adventure genre than Koch and Deep Silver, so we are very happy about extending our collaboration. Together with A New Beginning, The Whispered World is the adventure gaming highlight of 2009 and has many players waiting on the edge of their seats“, commented Carsten Fichtelmann, Managing Director of Daedalic Entertainment.

„We are very happy about expanding our cooperation with Daedalic Entertainment to The Whispered World. The intricately detailed graphics and the eventful adventures of Sadwick in this animate and lovingly crafted fantasy world are sure to capture adventure gamer hearts worldwide”, commented Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media, on the collaboration.

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.

German-speaking territories will see the PC game released in a lavish edition come end of May, with other territories, among them France, UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the Scandinavian countries to follow later this year.
