About Silver

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.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
