About the Game

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 of time to relive some of 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.

Key features

  • 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 consequences…
  • 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.

Intresting premise and intresting gameplay. Nice to play a game that isnt a bland modern shooty thing and actually has period correct weapons. Recomended, but only if you are willing to look past flaws in the graphics and A.I. A flawed but still enjoyable gem, in my humble opinion.

UNIQUE GAME
The consept of this game is very interesting, time travel and historical battles. The bad reviews are understandable but i think this game is a bit underated. I had alot of fun playing it and the battles were badass. The story was bit sloppy and the ending was a pain in the ♥♥♥ xD. (spoiler alert)

The ending is a huge cliffhanger and it does not look to be a sequel either. Which i think is a shame because i think this game was original and unique and i have only played a few unique games. But to be their first game they really showed a good game.
Anyways if you love war games and interested in history this game might be for you but be prepared for minor bugs and sloppy voice acting.

The game is very fun! I love how you go through the civil war, world war one, and more. There is alot of myestery and action and i love that in a game. My only complaint is it is very short with only 7 hours on it. Other wise it is a great game and im looking foward for a sequal.

This is an incredibly low budget time travel FPS game. If you're looking for polished setpieces, you won't find them here. But if you're looking for using cluster bombs on civil war battlefields to mess with history, this is your game. One mission (sorry for the mild spoiler here, but it'll help sell you on the game) involves you getting put in a POW camp, being broken out by a mysterious stranger... and then traveling back in time and being the mysterious strange who breaks yourself out of the POW camp. It's so absurd, but it's awesome. The part where future soldiers with automatic weapons show up at the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius is totally campy. The one rule of the game is that you can't mess with history... until the game tells you to mess with history.

If you're in the mood for something that's very clunky with a lot of heart, I think you'll enjoy making your way through the game. It's a pity that surface-level complaints about the game caused reviews to miss how enjoyable it is.
