The Whispered World is a traditional-style point-and-click adventure game for the PC. It is designed by Marco Hüllen, developed by Daedalic Entertainment. The graphics are 2D and are all hand-drawn and animated.
The game takes place in Silentia, a dream fantasy world of a young, sad circus-clown named Sadwick. The story starts as he wakes up in his travelling circus trailer after having experienced a recurring nightmare, where he sees the world falling apart.
