SPQR: The Empire's Darkest Hour, also known simply as SPQR, is a computer adventure game by American studio CyberSites set in Ancient Rome. The player has to solve a number of puzzles to uncover a criminal who wants to destroy Rome.
The player is an unnamed character, a friend of the inventor Cornelius who has been arrested. His arrest was on the suspicion that he is involved with the Calamitus, a figure who intends to destroy Rome. The game starts underneath Cornelius's workshop, and once the player has entered the workshop itself they receive a message about his arrest. The message also gives the names of five possible Calamiti:
Lucius: A retired soldier who is now a private investigator. Whilst not investigating, he spends his days drinking in the wine shop below his flat.
Verania: The head Vestal Virgin, who is thinking of retirement.
Xanthus: One of Gordian's assistants who claims to be Greek, but is actually a barbarian.
Sybil: A prophetess who runs a small stall, but later works for the Roman Emperor.
Gordian: An architect who is using the spare money from projects to build his own temple.
The player is also told about the Navitor, a machine that allows them to wander around Rome in the comfort of the workshop. Once activated it can pick up objects and use them in other places, travel in time and view each of the suspects' diaries.
