The year is 2044, and the world has become a globalized, industrialized place where online communication often replaces other forms of socializing and where each citizen can be easily found with tracking devices. Peter Wright is an employee in a New York advertising agency whose family was killed in a terrorist attack. One night he witnesses his neighbor being taken away by a SWAT team. The neighbor's wife asks Peter to find out what happened to her husband, and Peter begins to realize that the authorities are following an unknown agenda he must reveal at all costs.

The Moment of Silence is a traditional puzzle-solving adventure game. The player navigates the protagonist through pre-rendered locations with frequently changing, fixed camera angles. Most of the puzzles either involve gathering information by talking to characters and exploring dialogue trees, or manipulating inventory items and using them on objects in the scenery.
