After Daedalic Entertainment already officially introduced the main protagonists of Silence, the siblings Noah and Renie, it is now time to have a closer look at the small, but secret hero of the upcoming adventure game: Spot, the faithful caterpillar.
But behind the cute veneer of an insect lies more than the eye can see. This is why Spot is not only the steady companion of the Noah and Renie, but also a Swiss Army Knife for all the puzzles they have to solve on their way through the world of Silence. As needed he can fly, split himself up or drink and spit liquids. Furthermore he can become a bridge to reach remote placed or a crowbar to clear the way from heavy rocks. Here is a complete list of all his abilities:
Big Spot: One of Spot’s main features, is to suck in everything he can get close to his mouth. If this is air, the little caterpillar gets inflated and takes the shape of a ball. This can have multiple purposes, as letting him jump like a basketball, thrown him around and use him as a safety pillow for deep drops. Big Spot is so light that he can fly around like a hot-air balloon.
5er Spot: The more the merrier! This is why Spot can divide himself into smaller versions of himself. This can be useful to sneak through cracks, but is also a handy trap against Lumis, evil creatures living in the underground.
Flat Spot: When Spot is not carrying anything in his belly, he is able to deflate himself and become really small. This lets him reach areas that are not accessible for Renie and Noah, but also strong enough to carry people and built bridges to inaccessible areas.
Fire Spot: Spot is hot! At least when he is getting in touch with fire and becomes a living torch. Inflamed Spot can be used to set items on fire and bring light to the shadows of Silence.
Dragon Spot: But Spot is not only capable to suck in air, but also be a carrier of dangerous liquids like lava. He can then use the warm magma against the vegetation or use it to fix broken objects like stone statues.
Water Spot: Spot is also a perfect tool for all gardening work. If Spot is filled with water, he can be used as a watering pot. By pouring water over plants or mushrooms, they will grow and change the environment.
Honey Spot: L ittle Spot is also a sweet tooth and loves to be fed on honey. As soon as he is stuffed with the tasty nectar, he can hum in a meditativ way and calm a whole colony of Honey Ticks.
Helium Spot: Helium is the stuff that makes voices high and squeeky, but also the kind of noble gas that makes Spot weightless. That does not only make him fly around, but also invisible to everyone who crosses his way.
Acid Spot: Last but not least Spot is capable to transport acids. What it will do? Players will have to find out for themselves.
But Spot is not only a very good tool, for Noah and Renie he is a faithful companion on their adventures as well. Especially by giving comfort to the young Renie, as she gets into tough situations.
