Whisked away from his friends in Tarna by dark magicks, the hero awakes to find himself in the dreary land of Mordavia (whose culture, creatures and landscape are based on slavic and eastern-European folklore from our world). Facing both the suspicious and superstitious people of the local town and the ferocious monstrosities roving in the quiet woods around it, the hero must win the trust of the townspeople by helping them in their various plights and problems and by making the valley a safer place for them to live in. Moreover, he must unravel the mystery of the foreboding dark castle of the valley's former ruler, which has now been standing abandoned for years... or so it seems. For a terrible danger threatens, as a Dark Master prepares an unholy ritual to summon a demon from another dimension and cast the land into eternal darkness. Written by Brinsley

Did You Know?


After the game was released with a number of bugs that were eventually patched, the series languished for a while despite the ambiguous ending and hints at a sequel. A fan-made project eventually revived interest in the series and was able to motivate the production of the fifth and final game in the series. See more »


In the barrow of one of the Wraiths, the Fighter can find a battle ax to replace the sword he carries. However, the image of the sword in the inventory does not change to ax after the Fighter takes it into possession, although when clicking the "eye" icon on it - it is described as an ax. See more »

Who says video games are bad for you?
26 June 2000 | by (Reno, NV) – See all my reviews

Shadows of Darkness is the fourth in a series of Adventure/RPG games by Sierra On-Line, emphasis on Adventure. They carry the gamer through a storyline involving dragons, brigands, warlocks and other mythical beasts.

I first played this game in 1995. At the time, I was a bit young. I managed to get about five minutes into the game before I was too frightened to continue. Now, five years later, I've beaten the game many times and every time, I always find something new.

The voice talents in this game are the best I have ever seen, and the artwork is spectacular. The combat So-so. But the depth of the plot more than makes up for the gameplay.

The story is about you, the Hero, having been magically teleported to the lands of Mordavia. As time progresses, you discover ancient prophecies about Dark Ones and eternal night. Truly, this is a game to be worshipped.

As I complete this short review, I'd just like to say that this is one of the best games I have ever played. I encourage you to pick up a copy of the Quest for Glory Anthology, you won't regret it.
