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 Darkest of Days, where players will travel back and forth through the
annals time to relive some mankind’s most dire hours. 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, the player will 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.

In Darkest of Days, you take on the
role of Alexander Morris, an unlucky foot soldier who gets transferred to
General Custer’s regiment days before the Battle of Little Bighorn. Moments
before his inevitable demise, a futuristic time agent warps in to save Morris
and transports him to the future where he is told that time travel is now a
reality. However, an unknown faction is attempting to re-write history for their
own benefit. Your job is to stop them, and you’ll fight your way through eras
spanning thousands of years to do it.

Key features of

Darkest of Days


  • Brand
    New Engine:

    The dedicated team at 8monkey Labs has created an all-new, groundbreaking game
    engine known as Marmoset. The Marmoset Engine not only breaks from the all-too
    present Unreal engine FPS clones flooding the market, but also allows for some
    amazing graphical capabilities. You’ll fight through epic battles filled with
    literally hundreds of 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 to be sure, but it’s not
    just mindless run-and-gun, blow ‘em up gameplay. You’ll have to not only think
    about how to approach certain key battles and situations, but you’ll also have
    to 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
  • Wreak
    Havoc with Future Weapons in Antiquity:

    Something nearly every gamer that’s ever played a shooter based in the past
    has always wanted is the ability to 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? You’ll
    be able to answer questions like this in

    Darkest of Days
    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.
