Ankh demo now available

A German demo was recently released for the comedy adventure Ankh. With the full game already available in Germany, this appeared at first to be a case of the rich getting richer, and the rest of the world still locked out. Not so, however. The demo includes a hidden treasure in English if you know where to look.

Assuming you can "Weiter" and "Fertig stellen" your way through the initial German installation, the language can be configured to English by changing the "Ankh.ini" file (in the Media folder). Simply change the setting from "language=1" to "language=0", and you'll be off to ancient Egypt with full English voices and subtitles.

The demo itself weighs in at approximately 63 MB, and can be downloaded from GamersHell. The playable section sees the game's protagonist, young Assil, looking to charter a boat, only to find himself dumped overboard, where his challenges include a hostile crocodile and sunken pirate loot.

Ankh is due for release in English early next month. For more information about the game, check out our recent interview with the game's project leader.
