You are a veteran Space Marine of the Imperial Fists Chapter. Equipped with powerful Terminator armour and armed with the deadliest weapons that the Adeptus Astartes wield, you are a symbol of the Emperor’s might. Trapped aboard the space hulk Herald of Oblivion and the only survivor of your squad, you must fight your way through the aliens and heretics that infest the star vessel and find a way to escape the horror and return to your Chapter.


Herald of Oblivion is the first title in the newly conceived Legacy of Dorn Trilogy and places the player within a vast choice-based adventure novel, written by gamebook veteran Jonathan Green. Tin Man Games are using their critically acclaimed Gamebook Adventures Engine, replacing the paper book with an interactive computer terminal where players choose their path through the adventure. The original dice combat has also been replaced with an exciting first-person turn-based combat system.


  • Transform your phone, tablet or computer into an Imperial Cogitator!
  • Holographic combat simulator brings the player face-to-face with the myriad of lifeforms on the space hulk!
  • Advance or retreat! Fire weapons from a distance, or move in for close combat.
  • Encounter Orks, Tyranids, Dark Eldar, Necrons and more as you explore the Herald of Oblivion.
  • Access the Xenos Archive to keep track of monstrous creatures you destroy.
