Three centuries in the future
Dark Earth is set three centuries in the future. Dust and debris from a cataclysmic bombardment by a passing meteor in the middle of the 21st century led to darkened skies and a decimated population. Survivors created small outposts beneath the few remaining shafts of sunlight. Over the centuries much of what led to the present state of affairs was long forgotten and primitive idol worship returned to Earth...with a twist. Remnants of what once was still exist and demand explanation. Secrets from the past are the foundation for power in Dark Earth's present.You play Arkhan, a guardian of the local religious leaders, who worship the light. Early in the game an enemy "contaminates" Arkhan with a potion, which causes his appearance to mutate to that of a creature of darkness. As a result, his friends may turn against him as he looks for an antidote and tries to uncover the dark secrets that may destroy his family and home.
