Ankh 2 (Ankh: Heart of Osiris)

Ankh2 is an adventure game set in ancient Egypt.

In this sequel to the highly acclaimed comic adventure Ankh, you take the role of 3 characters trying to save the world from the menace of Osiris, God of the Underworld.

Learn more about the original characters and meet new ones; see known locations in a brand new perspective and visit whole new places – all in the unique, colourful Ankh setting and with a story that will take your breath away!

Ankh: Heart of Osiris is even more intense and more bizarre than its predecessor as it takes the player even deeper into the crazy world of old Cairo. You’ll meet a lot of familiar faces, but of course there are plenty of new surprises too!

Aside from familiar locations, like the bazaar, there will be plenty of new locations for the player to explore – such as the quarry and the large arena with all its dark, convoluted catacombs.

And of course the black humour of the first game can be found in the sequel! Once again, old Egypt and its inhabitants are turned upside down and given a good seeing to.

Features include:

  • Classic adventure game
  • A completely new and zany story in new, strange and fascinating locations
  • Get to know new characters and familiar faces
  • Over 40 original characters
  • More than 80 unique puzzles
  • Dazzling Egyptian landscapes with sophisticated graphics with dynamic light, shadow and glow effects
  • Voice acting
  • Cinematic full-motion sequences
  • Pitchblack humour
