Guess who’s back: Classic RPG Silver now on Steam
THQ Nordic brings 1999’s legendary game to the leading digital platform

Silver will be available at 7pm CEST/10am PST
Silver, a corrupt and sinister sorcerer, rules the land of Jarrah with an iron fist. He and his henchmen have abducted the village women as part of a pact with the almighty god, Apocalypse. Now, only one man can put a stop to Silver and his minions. That man is you, David, a promising young knight whose wife is among the captured. In order to succeed, you’ll need to recruit allies, master your swordplay, learn the art of magic, and venture through hostile worlds teeming with Silver’s corrupt followers to find 8 lost artifacts. Begin your quest, and become a hero!
Back in 1999, Silver was the European answer to JRPGs. With eye-candy in the form of pre-rendered 2D backgrounds, manga-inspired character design, and console-style gameplay, it introduced PC gamers to a new genre.
- Form your party from a cast of interesting and diverse characters, each with their own unique traits. Sekune is a master of archery, Cagen is a skilled martial artist, Jug’s strength makes him a force to be reckoned with, and many more…
- Gripping story and polished gameplay combine to make a “simple” RPG that’s still a lot of fun.
- The unique combat system with real-time, fast-paced action–you assume direct control over one of the characters, and the rest of your team fights on their own.
- Intuitive Swordplay
Silver’s unique control method allows quick and intuitive handling of action, which is especially helpful in the heat of battle. Ultimately, the mouse becomes the player’s “sword arm”. Sweep the mouse to your left and your hero will slash to the left, sweep the mouse forward and your hero will lunge. Magical effects, throwing knives, arrow, and even catapults are also controlled through the mouse system.
