Secrets Lie Waiting For You To
Violent sand storms have once again covered most of the
Sphinx and Great Pyramids. After years of digging, noted archaeologist Sir Gil
Blythe Geoffreys uncovers a secret chamber overlooked for centuries. Geoffreys'
first and only trip reveals an ancient, brittle papyrus scroll. After rough
translation, he realizes he's found the 'Rosetta Stone' of the Sphinx. Finally,
Gil thought, the riddle of the Sphinx... solved!
Sealed with a thick resin, the scroll bears an indiscernible
hieroglyph. Unfortunately, after breaking the scroll's seal and deciphering
it's mysterious contents, Geoffreys realizes he's unleashed an ancient curse;
shrouding those who fail to heed its warning in certain death. Realizing he is
doomed, Geoffreys sends for you, his closest friend and colleague.
Now, with the help of Gil's
carefully hidden notes and translation of the scroll, it's up to you to solve
the Riddle. However... the scroll has dubiously disappeared.
Your first responsibility will be to locate the missing
scroll. Then, using the tattered scroll with Gil's translation, you'll be on
the way to solving the Riddle of the Sphinx!

"Put on your archeologist's hat and persona, sit back, dim
the lights, and take a walk through antiquity that will ignite your passion for
exploration and captivate your mood and senses as you live and breathe your
discoveries of the spectacular hidden chambers and treasures inside one of the
Seven Wonders of the World."
"... Years ago in
the earlier days of television, some may remember a historical program called
You Are There. Well ... you will not only be there to discover the mysteries of
the past that have been entombed for centuries by the ancient Egyptians, but
you will be confronted with deathtraps, ancient puzzles, and logical challenges
that will test your decision-making skills and determine your survival."
"For me, Riddle was a very satisfying and exciting
opportunity to reexamine a fascinating period of history, presented and
captured with beautifully and appropriately detailed 3D graphics, and to
interactively participate in the discovery and exploration of enigmatic
environments within the magnificent structural wonders of the Giza Plateau.
What a wonderful trip ..."
