This is a fun unique puzzle game and I really enjoyed it.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
"Whisper is a puzzle game about sound shaping our reality.
Human perception is guided by visual input.
We know that a tree is a tree because it looks like a tree.
What if we took that away?
If you hear the sound of a falling tree,
but no one can see it, are you still in a forest?
Knock on wood."
About the game:
Whisper is a short interactive experience about the way we perceive reality in games and the contrast that may occur if we are presented with an environment in which our senses receive inputs on a different level of detail.
This might sound a bit vague, but every further detail would spoil the game, as it aims to be a short experience that may be played through in around 40 minutes.
Though the goal of the game is mainly to let the player experience something hardly doable with other mediums, this doesn't happen without actual interaction: puzzle solving is a core feature that helps the player immersing in the weird reality of the game, taking his characteristics to the extreme and paradoxical consequences.

Unzip the folder and then simply start the application (Whisper.exe), but first of all... put on some headphones, as they are crucial to the experience!
In case you are using the game with a controller, on the main menu go to Settings and make sure that the "Controller" option is set to "On".
And last, a big "thank you!" to all the people that helped Whisper being picked for Steam Greenlight :)
