Prophecy of the Shadow is a fantasy role playing game from SSI, published in the post AD&D era of the company. A long foretold prophecy is about to be fulfilled. The Shadow Lords are on the verge of entering our world. The player has to find a way to break the string of events, that are foretold by the prophecy. Magic is dying in the land, and the use of it is illegal -- practitioners are hunted by Mage Hunters. Instead of killing the Ultimate Bad Guy, most of the game is figuring out how to bring the Bad Guy back to life.
You're controlling a single character in a 2D interface which used an engine specifically designed for this project. The story was told using still pictures, text, and small animated sequences that used digitized actors superimposed over 3D rendered scenes.
This game was released on diskette only, there was no CD version created.
This is the "black sheep" of SSI's RPG stable that was designed to entice new gamers into the RPG genre: very simple character creation and stats, appealing VGA graphics and "cinematic" cut-scenes, mouse-driven interface, and easy combat. A good example of a game that does everything well, but nothing extraordinarily. Still, it's a solid and highly playable game that's worth a look, especially if you're new to the genre.
