CSM writes: "You play Eike, the seemingly doomed protagonist of Shadow of Destiny, a man who is stabbed to death in the opening scene. After his murder, he is met by a being called Homonculus who offers him a chance to go back in time and prevent the attack that took his life. He takes the leap back and manages to keep the killer at bay -- for a half hour, at which point he is killed again, in a different way. Eike is destined to be murdered over and over unless he can discover the identity of his killer and put a stop to him (or her) once and for all. The time-hopping adventure even takes Eike all the way back to the 1500s, as he uncovers a centuries-old mystery that makes up his killer's motive."
