Broken Silence: Recounted is an abridged retelling of Broken Silence, released in 2019. Recreated in Ren'Py, this new version features the story cut scenes, voice acting, and a restructured adaptation of the escape room.

This version was created for people who had trouble playing the original, which was graphically demanding and only released for Windows. This Ren'Py version is lightweight, multi-platform, and makes the story available to everyone in some capacity.

- 16K words that tell a thrilling story of escape! -

- Voice acting for the game's cut scenes! -

- An original soundtrack of chilling tunes! -

Some changes came with recreating the game in Ren'Py, notably the removal of escape room puzzles, free camera movement, multiple game menus, and the "Talkback" feature. But the original story is still presented in full. Play this version if you couldn't run the original or want to skip the puzzles for the story.

Some nice twists and an intriguing story. It would be cool to have more encounters with the Phantom. :) 


Great video, funny too! It's cool to see you picked up on some of the subtle details, like the newspaper authors changing and the "male in his 20s to 50s" joke.

Some minor parts you missed by preemtively clicking, like the last bit of the good ending and the part before Marina wakes a second time. Not your fault, just a quirk about Ren'Py.

Thank you for playing and for the kind words!


Hey, glad you liked it. Pfftt, I need to replay to see what I missed. :)
