Darkest of Days

Darkest of Days is a game developed by 8Monkey Labs and published by Phanom EX for the Xbox 360 game console. It is an action game that is also available on PC and is a game rated by ESRB as Mature for Blood, Strong Language and Violence. The game places the player within the possibility of time travel as being a reality. It lets them go back 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, gamers 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. Gamers are required to stop them, and fight their way through eras spanning thousands of years to do it.

Features

The Darkest of Days features a new engine called Marmoset which allows for optimal graphical capabilities. Gamers 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 graphical slowdown and all set against wide-open environments that are detailed and dynamically lighted. The game also features an action-packed first-person shooter storyline that is said not to be just mindless run-and-gun, blow ‘em up gameplay. Gamers will have to not only think about how to approach certain key battles and situations, but 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 they are killed dire consequences are at hand. Gamers will also get to see what a futuristic weapon can do back through history. The game gives players opportunities to see this and its effect of bringing something from the future and changing the course of history.
