Darkest of Days will have you traveling through time to some of the darkest days in the history of mankind.
Have you ever wondered what could happen if time travel was a reality? Have you ever thought about the possibility of going back in time to rewrite history for the better? That possibility is a reality in the first-person shooter Darkest of Days developed by Phantom EFX and 8monkey Labs.
In Darkest of Days, travel back and forth through the annals of time to relive some of mankind's most dire hours, when human society was at its lowest points. By fighting through terrible events such as The Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest conflict of the Civil War, and both World War I and II, attempt to save certain key individuals who were never meant to become involved in these truly monstrous events and thereby change human history for the better.
Brand new engine: The dedicated team at 8monkey Labs has created an all-new, groundbreaking game engine known as Marmoset. Fight through epic battles filled with literally hundreds of non-player characters (NPCs) on the screen at the same time, all with an advanced AI and all without a hint of graphical slowdown and all set against wide-open environments that are lushly detailed and dynamically lighted.
Compelling storyline: Darkest of Days is a compelling, action-packed first-person shooter, but it's not just mindless run-and-gun, blow 'em up gameplay. Think about how to approach certain key battles and situations, and take care when fighting -- certain key people that were never meant to die will be marked with a special blue aura. If you kill them, you'll face dire consequences ...
Future weapons in antiquity: Bring a futuristic weapon back through history and kick some major butt. How differently would Custer's last stand have turned out if the General was equipped with an M-16 assault rifle? While not every battle and situation will allow you to wield weapons from the future, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to unleash futuristic fury on your unsuspecting foes.
