    В конце первого тысячелетия от Рождества Христова неосторожное обращение священников-магов с силами природы навлекло на мир страшное проклятие. По землям Европы расползся Туман, уничтожающий все на своем пути...

    Тысячу лет спустя юному монаху и волшебнику по имени Исидор поручается разыскать и арестовать человека, который может ввергнуть мир в еще большие тьму и хаос. Погоня приводит юношу к неожиданным открытиям... Удастся ли ему проникнуть в тайну леденящего кровь Тумана?

Press Release (UK release):
    MINDSCAPE ENTERS THE FOG OF WAR

    Mindscape is pleased to announce the release of Mistmare on 7 March 2003 for PC CD-ROM. Developed by Arxel Tribe, the gameplay in Mistmare is an immersive mixture of action, adventuring and RPG elements as you lead Isador, the inquisitor monk, on an epic journey through an alternative Europe ravaged by years of conflict.

    In a parallel dimension, the history of the world has taken an evil turn. The populace, under the guidance of the all-powerful Roman Church have neglected the sciences and reverted to spell-casting and magic. A thousand years before, the sorceror priests, whilst dabbling in the occult, spawned an evil mist that spread over the earth, devouring everything in its path. Now, the year is 1996, and only a few cities survive as scattered beacons of light in a dark world. Their survival depends on enchanted bells that ring out incessantly from their cathedrals to repel the evil forces.

    The inquisition has assigned Isador to a manhunt case that will take him to the last cities in Europe, and as his quest unfolds, you will discover the secret that lies behind the evil mist.

    The development of Isador's character attributes depends on relative focus in Solar, lunar and terran spheres that influence his strength, health and willpower, as well as adventuring skill and his proficiency in certain schools of combat, such as Oriental, Norse and Barbaric. You must carefully explore each city and learn through character interaction, training and interrogation. Locks can be picked and chests raided, beaten opponents have weapons that can be added to your inventory.

    Spell-cast and battle your way past thieves, mafia figures and over 35 nightmarish monsters. You can use your liturgical and alchemic spells to trap them to pit them against other creatures to save your stamina.

    Based on the Lithtech 3.2 engine, Mistmare's highly detailed character models, dynamic lighting and reflection mapping combine together to provide an impressive gaming world.

    Introduction

    Join Isador, the inquisitor monk, on an epic journey through Europe ravaged by years of conflict. The fate of the world lands squarely on your shoulders, as you visit great European cities isolated from each other for hundreds of years, trying to find the person who escalated a personal conflict into a quickly unfolding drama that encompasses the known world.

    The year is 1996 and the world is different, there was no industrial revolution, there are no cars or mobile phones, there is only the feeble existence of people who have to fight the land, that decided it would fight back. The world is in turmoil and large parts of the continent are covered in thick mist with magical properties that forbids the passage through central Europe. Join Isador as he explores the world, searching for the man, deemed by the Church to be a murderer and an antichrist. The once great cities will pass you by: Rome, Avignon, Paris and others; on your quest to stop this man.
