Ankh finds life in North America

North Americans will soon get their first look at Ankh, the 3D comic adventure first released throughout Europe earlier this year, as publisher Viva Media announced that the game has shipped to retailers.

Although taking place in the familiar setting of ancient Egypt, the game is anything but the usual dry, dusty interpretation of such a fascinating time and culture. Instead, the game is a bright, humourous romp in and around Cairo, filled with bizarre characters and wacky obstacles. The third-person point-and-click game follows the exploits of young Assil, who must reverse a mummy's curse that he unwittingly released upon himself by removing a sacred ankh.

Ankh was well-received throughout Europe, and inspired the development of an upcoming standalone expansion called Heart of Osiris. The trade-off for getting the game six months behind their European counterparts is a significant price drop, as Ankh is retailing for $19.99 USD.

For more information about the game, be sure to check out our Ankh review or visit the game's official website.
