In the year 2000, college student Alex Roivas is called back to her grandfather's mansion when she discovers he has been horribly murdered. During her search for answers, she comes across the Tome of Eternal Darkness, a demonic book that describes the fate of all those who came across it. The tale begins in 33 B.C., when Roman General Pious Augustus sold his soul to an elder god. Each subsequent tale explores how 11 others, including a Cambodian dancing girl from the A.D. 1100s, an Inquisition era monk, a World War I journalist, previous members of the Roivas line and even Alex herself come to encounter and take part in the maddening fight against the eternal darkness.

In Roberto's chapter, Pious says, "I am the scourge of God, appointed to chastise you, since no one knows the remedy for your iniquity except me. You are wicked, but I am more wicked than you." These words are identical to the ones spoken by the warlord Tamerlane Khan before sacking Damascus. See more »


When Karim investigates a dead soldier, he describes the corpse as lying in a 'pool of cold blood.' The corpse and the ground its laying on however are completely clean. See more »


Dr. Edward Roivas: It is finally over, my dear. The Ancient's plans are finished for now at least. You have proved to be an incredibly courageous young woman. Your mother and father would have proud of you, just as I am. I'm sorry it had to be like this. It's not quite the inheritance I had in mind for you, but there was so little time, and so much to do... Goodbye, Alex. I will miss you...
Ms. Alexandra Roivas: As I gazed up at the Ancient I had brought in this world to stop Pious, my mistake was made clear. This Ancient could lay ...

Scary and messes with your mind
30 December 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

As you play through the game you have a level of sanity, and if your sanity goes as low as it can get your character goes insane. Things such as your character 'dies' or the game 'turns off', but none of this is really happening. The game is actually very easy, but it gets harder after a while. In the beginning of the game Alex sees that her grandfather died, and she finds chapters of a book that answers her past, and soon she finds out how he died. You play as many characters throughout the game, but after about 8 chapters you start playing as Alex. I give this game an 8 out of 10
