Digital Jesters Take A Moment To Create One Of The Biggest Adventure Games Ever

Digital Jesters has announced that their forthcoming title 'The Moment of Silence' has been pushed back until November 2004. But as the old saying goes 'good things come to those who wait' - and this four-disc extravaganza will certainly be worth waiting for.

Not only will the game feature 75 stunning locations designed by award-winning CG artists and more than 500 interactive screens, it will now feature a massive 30 minutes of motion video.

The Moment of Silence is a high-tech political thriller. Players step into the shoes of Peter Wright, a communications designer currently working on the Government's 'Freedom of Speech' campaign. When a SWAT team storms his neighbour's apartment, it is Peter's job to uncover the truth behind his mysterious disappearance.

Leo Zullo, marketing director, Digital Jesters, said: "The sheer size of The Moment Of Silence has meant that unfortunately we have had to push back the release date. If this means waiting an extra month to make this game one of the biggest graphical adventures ever seen on the PC then we are all for it. As I am sure all those who play it will be."
