A downloadable game for Windows

Their Silent Footsteps is a puzzle/exploration game that takes place in an apocalyptic desert. Follow the cryptic messages left by the Ancient Bedouin Monks and scattered across the desert to make your way home.

Reference the stars and explore the desert to find your own path.

Be careful though. Humanity's last sources of water are dwindling, and power has become an inconsistent resource. There's no telling what could be out there.

Zaray awakens, the horizon hazy with moonlit sand. The power has gone out, and she doesn't know how she got here. She must now set off across the desert, with only the stars as her guide.

If she's able to decipher the markings, she should be able to make it. No living souls traverse the Desert this late at night, so the ancient stone tablets are her only hope.

It will be challenging...

But she must.

She must make it back to her family at all costs!

That was an interesting game and difficult to play, I don't know if there are multiple endings or if there is only one but I was pleased to complete it, if I see this on Gamejolt website I will support it there too. 5/5.

Fantastically entertaining to watch, thank you very much for taking a look at the game so quickly! In response to your question, there are a multitude of paths that you can take through the desert, and there may be a few odd secrets here and there scattered about.

Glad you enjoyed, and thanks for playing!
