GOG release: “Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening (Enhanced Edition)”

Old World Studios‘ Egyptian adventure game Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening (Enhanced Edition) is ready to be explored on GOG.

Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening (Enhanced Edition) seems to be straight out of the 90ies with its campy FMV sequences and voice acting, while the logic puzzles could be from that era, too. However, the attention to historic detail makes it a much more interesting experience, as one explores the 3D replicas of the Giza Sphinx and Great Pyramid of Cheops to uncover their archaelogical secrets.

The original Riddle of the Sphinx: An Egyptian Adventure came out in 2001 and the Enhanced Edition adds some visual HD flourishes, e.g. real-time environment effects like tomb dust or sand, while offering gameplay tweaks like faster navigation to make it that much more immersive.

Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening (Enhanced Edition) was originally released in February 2021 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 25% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, August 10, 2021, at 1 PM UTC. There are also two special versions in addition to the standard edition: The Extreme Expedition Pack includes fully unlocked in-game hints and a solutions guide, plus the fully unlocked Moonlight Exploration around the Sphinx and Great Pyramid, and the fully unlocked Gil’s Secret Library. The Survival Kit has all of these goodies as well as the original soundtrack.

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
