House of Tales’ take on an Egyptian game had perhaps the longest intro story I remember in any game. Very abbreviated, it went something like this: there’s a cursed vase that you bought and attempted to return in a case of supernaturally-induced buyer’s remorse, but now the shop you bought it from has been mysteriously replaced by a pyramid, which you’re now exploring so as to find the Philosopher’s Stone. Also, you’ve decided to split up, I guess since that always works so well in movies.
A review of three games at one of the top Berlin venues - Executioner, The Secret of the Pharaohs and Illuminati. Beautiful rooms with solid puzzles and a great sense of exploration.
The Secret of the Pharaohs is especially impressive because of the setting and the high number of mainly technical puzzles. The successful effects will certainly be able to inspire experienced gamers as well.
