A gruesome murder leads to the discovery of a secret tome owned by the deceased. In it is a history dark and deadly, enough to drive the reader beyond the brink of sanity.
Originally developed on the Nintendo 64, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem made the jump to Gamecube where it proved to be a massive success -- if you don't consider sales a success. It sold 17,000 copies in Japan and not too much more in North America. However, to those few who played it, Eternal Darkness was a critical experience; one of the most engaging and psychologically thrilling games of its time.
