AI was embedded everywhere. In our cars, in our homes. In the clothes we wore. For some of us, even inside our own bodies.
Dreading the Singularity, mankind abruptly put an end to AI. The result was a worldwide technological collapse.
Generations later, Vera, a federal homicide detective is sent to rural outpost Nordsund to investigate a string of murders. She soon finds herself pulled into an invisible war about technology and religion. While some want to awaken the Singularity, seen as a last deity in a godless world, others are vehement technophobes.

Whispers of a Machine is being targeted for a 2018 release for Windows and Mac, and is a collaborative effort of indie developers Clifftop Games and Faravid Interactive.
Clifftop Games previously released Kathy Rain, of which Destructoid said "No hyperbole, Kathy Rain is yet another milestone in this resurgence of old-school point-and-click adventures."
The Samaritan Paradox was the first game released by Faravid Interactive. It was said to be "a challenging, intelligent tale wrapped up in a neat adventure game package" by The Telegraph.
