    A fun-filled adventure where YOU make the rules!



    Dark magic has drawn you to Mordavia. Undead creatures walk the forest by night; everyone you meet seems strange and uneasy. It's up to you to make friends, influence people, and unravel the mysteries of the Dark One - all before breakfast. Shadows of Darkness cover the land; it's time to be a Hero again!

    • Create your own character, choosing a Fighter, Magic User, or a Thief. Puzzles, combat, and obstacles change according to your character type and development.

    • Start fresh or import your character from Quest for Glory I, II, or III.

    • Fight monsters with a sophisticated new battle system that lets you choose skill level and combat type - from pure strategy to adrenaline-pumping, thumb-twitching arcade action.

    • Unravel A LOT of puzzles - nearly three times as many as found in other adventure games.

      No other game gives you so many options as you take on the forces of the Dark One!

      Incredible sound effects and a dramatic musical score form the backdrop for your adventure.

      Explore 110 different exotic areas, meeting over 30 unique, amazingly animated denizens of Mordavia.

    The Dark One awaits. A crazed cult has kept his evil image alive in an isolated mountain valley. Now a beautiful but deadly vampire has enlisted the aid of some wicked Wyverns, raucous Revenants, nefarious Necrotaurs, and even a wild-eyed wizard. The dark forces wait with weapons ready and fangs bared.
