From Press Release:
Bordeaux, France – October 18, 2023 – Pierre Feuille Studio is today thrilled to announce that the demo for its upcoming beautiful and engrossing historical detective mystery Chronique des Silencieux is now available to download via Steam.
Set in 1970’s France, Chronique des Silencieux sees players step into the shoes of Eugène Faury, a rookie private eye entrusted with solving the strange and peculiar case of Victor Dousvalon – a stubborn old history professor who has shrouded his life in secrecy.
Budding investigators will need to think on their feet to solve this delicate mystery; not only following leads, but also their intuition as they question witnesses, detect lies and dig through documents in a quest to break the silence and decades-old lies.
The demo features the opening of the game, in which Eugène is thrown headfirst in the strange case, meeting a colourful cast of characters as he begins his investigation on the streets of Meriadeck, Bordeaux. Players will experience the games beautiful hand-drawn aesthetic inspired by the work of Rémi Chayé, and enjoy its highly evocative soundtrack influenced by the masters of 60’s & 70’s cinema, giallo mystery and crime thrillers.
