Anyone play ever play "Mummy"?

Has anyone else ever played the mystery/horror game from Interplay Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh?. Even though it was short and repetitive at times and really didn't offer anything new in terms of adventure games, I really found this game to be quite atmospheric. My fav part of the game was the Pharaoh...

Cyan's gone too, hasn't it? I seem to recall some humorously titled article like 'Myst Partnership is riven', referring to the Cyan twins (can't quite recall the names) deciding not to work together any more. Rob and Randy Miller were their names, I think. Its kinda sad, after riven (the brother's ...

Yeah, Pharaoh was the first CB game I ever played as well. After that, I tried Caeser, it was okay but I don't think I will be returning to it anytime soon, or ever, that is if I can get it out from behind my tv stand (don't ask how it got there...just don't). I kept returning to Pharaoh, even thoug...

Anyone here play Alpha Centauri?. I thought that was a pretty cool RTS game, althought I could only beat it on the easiest difficulty level. It was fairly old from what I remember, but still good. AC, as you might have guessed, is a space colony type RTS. I think one of the coolest parts about it is...

I would take a look at the main page as was previously suggested. There you can find links to many types of media, including some cool music tunes, screenshots, and the e3 trailer, which I think you can fetch over at gamespy. Also, check out the IGN preview located here: http://pc.ign.com/articles/5...

Tomb Robbers?

I wonder, do you all think there will be tomb robbers in the game, and will they be visually distinguishable like in Pharaoh?. Maybe there was already information on this, but I couldn't find any. Anyway, I think the robbers this time around should be able to disguise themselves in the guise of a gu...

Wow, if those are in-game screenshots those are some incredible graphics, especially for a CB-type game. Also, could someone point out whats so wrong 'bout those screenshots?. They look normal to me.

Bulls were sacred to Ra Bulls were sacred to other gods as well. Consider Ptah, patron god of Memphis. The Apis Bull, who had a triangular white shape on his head, was considered to be Ptah's incarnation on Earth and was venerated throughout his 20 year lifespan. When it died, it was buried at the ...

This is definitely a creative idea, but I would like to add on to it if I could. Maybe you could have a military/constable force that patrols the streets looking for the homeless, who gives them the boot out of the city. Perhaps the jurisdiction of the constables could end at the temples or other re...

btw, for those who are wondering this poem is about the Egyptian afterlife and how the dead were judged. Also, if the poem itself needs a little work, someone please let me know (i.e., coherence, punctuation, etc).

Jayhawk, sure we are, but I want some dancing boys too! :) Think Hapshetsut and Cleopatra to name only two Queen/Pharaohs. I am sure they had male dancers and acrobats more than female ones. ;) Hey, for all you know they could have been Lesbians...or maybe even bi... Anyway, as far as that goes, I ...

Well I don't think you will only build three cities in the game. This quote from the preview kinda made things clearer to me, atleast. "From this seat, decisions will have to be made about exploration, trade, founding of cities, and war. Military decisions won't be played out inside of city maps, bu...

That sounds like an excellent idea Keith, I'll add my own ideas soon, but I'm pretty burnt at the moment. Again these are some very creative aspects that I think could add alot to the game's ending.

Multiplayer... :) Take multiplayer in the last citybuilder - Emperor, for example. Every player picks a city, and whoever completes the goals first - wins. Now, that's nice and all, but the problem is it's not really multiplayer. The only interaction with other players you have is chat and some tra...

Given that Hormeheb was the one most likely to have come across it in his wars etc, it showed how well the king was loved by him when he was embalmed. I found it a lovely touch. Such a shame that small details like this are not more commonly known, isn't it? It makes them more alive, more real some...
