Dark Renaissance is an adventure game with RPG elements and a compelling and dramatic story, true to historical events, characters and places of the XV century.
From the Author of the best-selling Medici series Matteo Strukul, comes a new exciting Interactive History Drama, pushing the boundaries of video game storytelling and narrative depth.
Embark on a journey through key places of the Renaissance world, lend your sword to Lorenzo de’ Medici and fight formidable enemies such as the cunning Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II, the treacherous Anguana and the impetuous Duke Ercole d’Este.
The most realistic Renaissance epic ever built in a game

Meet the rockstars of Renaissance
From Lorenzo il Magnifico to Leonardo da Vinci, you will walk on the shoulder of giants, inside iconic locations such as Venice and Florence, among the others. But be wary: ancient pagan magic, Eastern mysticism and occult knowledge will drag you into the darkest corners of human mind.
