[Update] How to save the future - The Silent Age complete step-by-step walkthrough

Past tense (Now on Android, too)
Product: The Silent Age | Developer: House on Fire | Publisher: House on Fire | Genre: Adventure, Puzzle

The Silent Age for iOS and Android is a new time-travelling episodic adventure, split between two eras.

There's the eery and foreboding 1972. And then there's a post-apocalyptic wasteland some four decades later, in 2012.

You play as Joe, a humble cleaner with a red boiler suit and a moustache that'd make Tom Selleck jealous.

Joe can jump between the two time periods, which certainly comes in handy when solving the game's tricky puzzles.

If you get stuck, check out our complete guide to Episode 1 of The Silent Age below. This step-by-step walkthrough contains solutions to every puzzle.

Let's get started...

Chapter 1 - The Past

The Silent Age

Look at the note to discover that the boss - Mr Hill - wants a word with you. Open the orange door and head inside.

The Silent Age

Pick up the light bulb on the shelf, and then use it on the broken light bulb hanging above the table. Tap on the new bulb to illuminate the room.

The Silent Age

Pick up the blue key card from the table and the green rubber glove from the shelf. Exit the room.

The Silent Age

Use the blue key card on the card reader next to the door. Head inside.

The Silent Age

Talk to the secretary, then open the big red doors to see Mr Hill. Talk to him, and he'll hand you a red key card. This card will bump you up a security clearance level.

The Silent Age

Head back to the first area, and walk to your left. Use the red key card in this reader to open the elevator.

The Silent Age

Tap on the control panel to open the elevator door. Exit into the sub-basement labs.

The Silent Age

Use the rubber glove to fix the broken access panel. Go through the now-unlocked door.

The Silent Age

Look at the lab coat to get a handkerchief. Use it on the blood splatter beneath the big circular doors to collect a sample.

The Silent Age

Head all the way back upstairs, and talk to the secretary. She'll give you a plaster.

The Silent Age

Go all the way back, and use the plaster on the left door button to stick it down. Press the right button to open the door.

The Silent Age

Talk to the injured man to finish the chapter.

Chapter 2 - The Future

The Silent Age

Tap on the device to put it into your inventory. Then, use the device to make your first jump through time.

The Silent Age

Open the door and exit the room.

The Silent Age

Walk upstairs and look at the hanging man to reveal a key on his belt. Take it. Also, pick up the hammer on the floor to the right of this screen. Go downstairs.

The Silent Age

Use the key on the evidence room door. Search the corpse to get an ID card. Go back upstairs to get to the first floor.

The Silent Age

Use the card to open the red door, near the hanging man.

Inside, take the note from the bulletin board. Open the desk drawer, and then take the gun oil out. Go back outside, and climb the stairs to the second floor.

The Silent Age

Tap on the picture of Lincoln to reveal a safe. Use the code on the safe to open it up, and get a paper clip. Go downstairs - twice - and enter the evidence room.

Use the gun oil on the padlock, and then use the paper clip on the padlock to open it. Crack open the door and grab the sword. Head back up to the second floor.

The Silent Age

Cut the rope. Before you head in the door, go back downstairs to the ground floor and retrieve the noose from the corpse. Now, go back up and go through the door you just unlocked.

The Silent Age

Smash the glass with the hammer. Climb onto the tree.

The Silent Age

Use the rope on the tree branch and climb down.

Chapter 3 - The Machine

The Silent Age

Walk to the right and enter the sunlight. This will activate your solar-powered time-travelling gizmo.

The Silent Age

Jump to the past, and retrieve the screwdriver from the motorcycle tool belt. Use the screwdriver on the backlot door to the left of this scene, and exit the area.

The Silent Age

Grab the umbrella. Walk up to the police car and jump to the future.

The Silent Age

Grab the nightstick from the wrecked cop car. Now, go back to the motorcycle area and jump to the past.

The Silent Age

Use your umbrella on the ladder to lower it. Climb up, and climb the ladder to the roof.

The Silent Age

Pick up the carpet. Then, go to the future and slip into the hole in the roof.

The Silent Age

Tear the wallpaper, and then jump into the past. Open the curtains, and pick up the wallpaper paste. Turn on the lamp and take the key. Use the key to open the door and exit onto the fire escape.

The Silent Age

Climb down the ladder and spill wallpaper paste into the small poison ivy plant. When you go into the future now, it won't have spiralled up the wall.

Climb the ladder, go into the future, and try to open the door you just revealed. The handle will snap off in your hand.

The Silent Age

Go into the other apartment and use the handle on the door. Now, you can open the door, and enter.

The Silent Age

Go into the past and watch the TV. Now, smash the window with your nightstick, and put the carpet over the broken glass. Climb through the window to finish the chapter.

Chapter 4 - The Entry

The Silent Age

Open the trash can and take out the broom head.

The Silent Age

Switch to the future, and pick up the meat hook. Walk over to the left and lift the broken plate. Use the broom head on the dust, and use the meat hook on the man hole cover. Climb down.

The Silent Age

Pick up the loose rung and leave.

The Silent Age

Switch to the past, turn on the electronic gate, and walk through.

The Silent Age

Go to the future now. Use the metal bar on the hazardous waste container to crack it open. Take out the bonesaw. Now, go back to the manhole.

The Silent Age

Take note of the light switch's location in the past. Then, jump to the future, and tap that same area in the dark to illuminate the area. Now, use the bonesaw on the iron bars to cut through.

The Silent Age

Pick up the syringe, and walk back to the surface.

The Silent Age

Use the syringe on the turpentine to get a container full of flammable liquid. Jump to the future and inspect the dead body to get a lighter.

Right - back down the sewer!

The Silent Age

In the future, use the turpentine syringe and then the lighter on the rubble. The smoke will get rid of the hornets' nest, letting you walk into the hospital.

Chapter 5 - The Corpse

The Silent Age

Go through the door.

The Silent Age

In the past, pick up the car battery. Now, jump to the future and exit the room.

The Silent Age

Pick up the tyre iron, then jump to the past and enter office A.

The Silent Age

In the future again now. Drop down the hole.

The Silent Age

Pick up the scissors, then jump to the past and cut the toe tag off the corpse. Go back to the future, leave the room.

The Silent Age

Use the battery with the cables to light up the room and reveal a key. Pick it up. Then, leap to the past. Open the drawer to get the ambulance key. Now, climb the stairs.

The Silent Age

In the office, use the key on the filing cabinet. Then, use the name tag to find the correct address. Go to the past and enter the garage.

The Silent Age

Jump to the future. Use the tyre iron on the tyre to fix the ambulance. Use the button to open the door. Use the key on the ambulance to complete the game.

Congrats, you did it. All you. Ahem.

Can anyone recommend anything of similar quality on the app store? I LOVED this, and I'd love to donate towards Episode 2. In the long term I'd like to create something similar - but for now its inspired me to download and start playing around with Inform 8 and pick back up the Interactive Novella I put on hiatus oh so many hard drives ago...

THANK YOU.

Thank you for the total walk through! Makes me feel very smart even with a total lack of lateral thought - a personal foible. Still better to do it myself than watch it on YouTube.
