Featuring a Live Concert and Music by Earth, Wind
The ship has slept for a thousand years.
Waiting, Listen! It is awakening! ISIS stirs! Can it complete the mission it
began a thousand years ago, or will history repeat itself? Will the path,
accessible only once in each millennium, close before you learn all of the
secrets to re-launch the magnificent ship which shares the name of the Goddess,
your guide, ISIS?
You are the summoned one, personally chosen by ISIS to make the elaborate
preparations necessary to launch the ship. Your most important task: find the
three gems which harness the elemental forces of Earth, Wind & Fire -
essential to power the ship. No easy task. You'll need all the help the goddess
ISIS is willing to give.
Find the gems hidden in and around the giant pyramid which imprisons the
ship. Each precious gem individually activates a section of the control panel
as you prepare for launch.
But even after launch - be careful. You face the same challenge that
stranded the original crew a millennium ago... how to pass through the
dimensional gate before it closes.
Can you discover what the previous captain missed in time to save the
ship... and perhaps the world.

"Isis is an interesting blend of flavors. It's a vanity piece to showcase
the musical talents of Earth, Wind and Fire, who slid down the slippery slope
of the downfall of disco in the early 1980s, bound with a good old-fashioned
adventure game, set in ... where else? ancient Egypt. I actually found the
whole concept rather quaint. I mean, every adventure gamer I know is also a big
Earth, Wind and Fire fanwhat about you?
"The plot is thus: you have been sent
through a portal from your world to the world of Isis to assist her in sending
her ship back to your world to save it utilizing the music of a early eighties
disco band. Cha cha cha. Your job is to find three gems hidden somewhere in a
pyramid and sailing ship and return them to where they belong, thus releasing
the ship and an eight-minute Earth, Wind and Fire concert from their respective
slumbers. The finale is definitely a retro salute to the early
eightiesmade me feel like I should be in a fern bar sipping a tequila
sunrise and listening to Morris Day and the Time."
"The weird setup notwithstanding, this is a very cool little game. Cut
scenes and transitions are smooth, and the design is a pretty mix of sci-fi and
an Egyptian motif, with a great use of colors..."
