Silent Age, The - Cover art

In an adventure moving back and forth between present day 1972 and an unsettling future in 2011, players control a suitably named average 'Joe'. One day Joe finds a mysterious dying man who seemed to come out of nowhere. He explains Joe that something is about to go wrong which will have catastrophic influences on the future. Before he dies, he hands Joe a portable time travel device and tells Joe that the fate of humanity lies in his hands!
