In Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms, the mortal realm is on the brink of destruction, with humanity’s only hope resting in the hands of a soul-devouring demon.

Following the events of hack ’n’ slash RPG Kult: Heretic Kingdoms, a dark shadow has once again fallen over the world. The core element of Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is its internally conflicted main character and the associated unique party system. Players must assume the role of the Devourer, a mighty demon who can travel back and forth between the human and shadow world, devouring the souls of his enemies. Seamlessly switching between the Devourer and up to three party members, each with their own special abilities, provides strategic depth in battle, while switching between worlds also allows players to outwit their opponents in battle, avoiding traps and solving puzzles along the way.

A shadow lies across the world, and the Devourer is the only one who can defeat this rising threat. It is now up to players to decide whether they save the world from this dark threat or leave it to its fate.

Longtime Dr. Who fans know Baker as the fourth Doctor, whom he played for seven years, and who has recently returned in a line of audio books by Big Finish. Baker has also starred in a number of films and television shows, including the film version of Dungeons & Dragons.

This time he will use his distinctive voice to bring life to one of the main charactes in the game: „Krenze“ - The renegade High Sage of Penta Nera.

"I'm overjoyed that Tom is returning to participate in the new Heretic Kingdoms game!” said Chris Bateman, lead writer and co-creator of the franchise. “The recording sessions for Kult were amazing, and Tom took on the role of narrator and knocked it out of the park. I can't wait to hear his take on this new role, which is integral to the story of the new game."
