The Moment of Silence is an investigative thriller adventure game developed in 2004 by German video game developer House of Tales.
The game is set in the year 2044 in downtown New York City, in a future with many Orwellian influences. The player plays an advertising agency worker named Peter Wright, who is depressed and drinking heavily after the death of his wife and child in a terrorist attack. One night, as he is drinking, he hears a commotion in the hall. Looking out through the peephole in his apartment door, he sees a SWAT team storm the apartment of his next door neighbour and carry out a middle-aged man, much to the pain and anguish of his wife. Peter learns that the man was a journalist named Graham Oswald, and his wife asks Peter to try and find out what happened to him. Peter accepts and, after many encounters, discovers that Oswald was part of a Rebel organization dedicated to revealing a massive government conspiracy to keep the truth from the people.
