The Lion’s Song: Episode 1 – Silence Review

I can’t get anything done with all this silence

As someone who does play violin, but does not write music, I found this episode really interesting. In episode 1, you play Wilma, a violinist who has been named more or less a prodigy under her teacher. She must finish her composition, but Wilma gets stressed, the silence doesn’t stay long enough, and everything seems to be refusing the passage of creativity.

The Lion’s Song doesn’t require you knowing (or being able to play) an instrument, just to understand the predicament the character is in. While this game may be simple, it does well with how your interactions affect the ending. Each decision is subtle, whether it affects dialogue, Wilma, or the storyline. The music plays on the situation, and easily affects the player based on what brought it on.

Don’t let the art style drive you away, The Lion’s Song: Silence is worth playing (it is free after all!). I do see some flaws but it does not take anything away nor ruin the experience. I will certainly wait for future episodes and see how each character tackles their respective mediums and how struggling with creativity, human interactions, and inspiration personally affects each character.
