Not based on anything else of the same title. One joke, one room, one move. Perhaps the epitome of gag games.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

This is without any doubt the shortest game I have ever played. It's probably the shortest game ever. In fact Silence is so short it only just qualifies as a game at all. Although with the growing trend in text adventures being a move away from the great rambling dungeons of our origins into shorter and more contemporary styled situations Silence could be seen as the peak of modern interactive fiction.

The shortest game ever?, February 12, 2014
by Simon Deimel (Germany)

A simple guess-the-verb game. One obvious matter has to be solved with one move. This cannot be called a puzzle, there is hardly any logic thinking required. The solution is obvious, but still you might not see the wood for the trees.
I gave this two stars because in the end I found it funny -- not that kind of funny to have long laughs about, but funny in a way that makes you bump your head against the wall.
It is somehow stupid, but I recommend it. I clearly recommend this to people who like to check out stuff that does not fit into the usual categories.
