There's been plenty of fanfare about the life of Cleopatra, significantly less so about the historical adventure from Kheops named after the famed Egyptian Pharaoh. After several months of silence following the downloadable version of Cleopatra: A Queen's Destiny, today The Adventure Company announced that the newly-renamed Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb has now shipped to North American retailers.
Surprisingly, Cleopatra is not particularly central to the story of Riddle of the Tomb. While the game takes place during her reign, at a time the country is engaged in civil war, players are cast in the role of an astrology apprentice named Thomas. Young Thomas has fallen in love with his master's daughter, and when both she and his mentor are kidnapped, it's up to players to sift through a complex conspiracy to save them, while traveling through historical Egyptian locations like the Library of Alexandria.
Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb will soon be available in all major retailers at a cost of $19.99 USD.
