Ve stínu havrana is a Czech point-and-click adventure (created by Slovak team) that was released in 1999 with Czech voiceovers and re-released in 2000 with newly added Czech and also English subtitles for foreign players.

In the game you play Severin, a young monk, who is accused by his abbot of the worst sins, because he has adult literature in his possession (which he has just taken away from his naughty students). As the game plays in the dark Middle Ages, Severin has to fear for his life, but he manages to escape by jumping out of a window. Lying on the ground, he dreams a strange dream in which a voice tells him he has to find the meaning of life. When he awakes, he finds himself in a forest and decides to follow his dream's advice.

The game originally contained a dubbing by Slovak programmer of the game. The game's publisher Cinemax described it in one interview as "fantastically funny" but because it was an amateur dubbing and for testing purposes only, they financed a professional dubbing by the very famous Czech actor Jiří Lábus.
