Description of Prophecy of The Shadow

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.

In case anyone is curious, there's a difference between the quest.exe in this download and the original floppy disks. Because of some file dates that were later, I got curious and dug out my disks, installed those, and ran a compare. The differences were in quest.exe, the batch (just changes dir differently), and a new file "" which it turns out runs a patch to ignore the documentation check (it seems you can just hit return). The quest.exe is then updated in order to do this, which is why it differed (it was already updated).

Great storyline, mouse interface, real human actors.

Great game if you like dungeon crawlers!
