Chimera Entertainment have announced Songs of Silence is in development.

Songs of Silence is currently in development for Windows PC (via Steam), but has no release date yet.

Players can expect the upcoming title to mix turned based strategy seen in the Civilization series, only now with real time battles driven through the use of cards.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Songs of Silence

Songs of Silence is a true passion project for us, conceived all the way back in 2019. It took inspiration from some of our all-time favorites, such as Ogre BattleKohan, and Warlords. We want to focus on conquest and army management in a genuinely interesting fantasy world, with as much replayability as possible. A pure experience,” said Alexander Kehr, Creative Director at Chimera Entertainment.

Songs of Silence offers a fresh spin on card-based mechanics. Instead of collecting and building a deck, cards represent the unique actions granted by heroes and locations. Each faction and hero has their own distinct play style on the turn-based strategic map and in real-time combat. Choose your heroes and lead them through a story-driven single-player campaign or competitive multiplayer, brought to life with vivid artwork, in addition to an epic score from acclaimed Final Fantasy Tactics composer Hitoshi Sakimoto.

Game Features:

  • Two Worlds at War: Lead mighty armies, exploring the world on the strategic map to gain a tactical advantage. Outwit your opponents with deadly ambushes, and manage precious resources to rebuild the ravaged land and defeat your rival kingdoms.
  • Master Dynamic Real-Time Battles: Unleash your forces in fast-paced, real-time battles and drive them to victory by playing powerful combat cards from your heroes.
  • Make Strategic Decisions: Carefully construct your armies from more than 100 different units to counter whatever the enemy may throw at you. Songs of Silence offers a wide variety of viable builds, from wild monster stampedes to defensive lines of war machines.
  • Wield Powerful Cards of Fate: Choose from hundreds of cards offering a nearly limitless range of possibilities, like burning down entire cities or spreading the life-consuming Silence.
  • Progress with Each Playthrough: Songs of Silence rewards multiple playthroughs with a roguelite progression system. Unlock new factions, heroes, campaigns, maps and more with each game.
  • A Vibrant Fantasy Universe: Discover an original, atmospheric world captured with colorfully detailed, art nouveau-inspired visual design and compelling voice-over narration.
  • Single-player & Multiplayer Modes: Play on your own in the story-based single-player campaign, or face off against real opponents in fast-paced online multiplayer for up to six players.
  • Legendary Music: Experience an evocative score by renowned composer Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XIIFinal Fantasy TacticsValkyria Chronicles).
