A terrible curse blankets the kingdom in darkness, thrusting it into utter despair and erasing all light. One day, a maiden of light appears from the north and chases away the darkness, reintroducing light across the land. However, after taking in all the darkness, the evil overcomes the maiden and consumes her, allowing it to escape her body. As a final attempt to seal the evil, the maiden locks herself away. The king, driven by fear, demands the death of the maiden to save his kingdom. Many warriors journey out in an attempt to slay the maiden, but the darkness curses all who dares to encroach, creating an even greater darkness that consumes the kingdom. Take up arms as the next brave warrior to save the land and expel the darkness!
Choose between one of five origins: the lives of people who fell just short of becoming heroes, all with different skills and abilities. Join one of their lives with yours and begin your own heroic journey. The Heart of Darkness has multiple endings depending on the origin you choose and the decisions you make during your journey.
Enjoy quick turn-based battles where strategy and choice of allies are key! Find Shadow Souls—the spirits of warriors past—and enlist them to aid you in battle! Each has its own unique backstory and abilities and can be swapped out freely.
