Ankh 2: Tutankhamen no Nazo [J] Ibis Inc. / Ray Corporation 1996

This is a first person adventure game in which the player is called by professor Yoshimura Sakuzi to come to Egypt, after his father died and when he arrives there a fortune teller tells him that Egypt had been waiting for him 300 years. He decided to find the legendary valley with the help of the professor to discover the mystery of Tutankhamen. The Ankh, also known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata, was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "eternal life", a triliteral sign for the consonants ?-n-?. Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (ruled c.1333 BC – 1323 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. His original name, Tutankhaten, means "Living Image of Aten", while Tutankhamun means "Living Image of Amun". In hieroglyphs the name Tutankhamun was typically written Amen-tut-ankh, because of a scribal custom that placed a divine name at the beginning of a phrase to show appropriate reverence. He is possibly also the Nibhurrereya of the Amarna letters. He was likely the 18th dynasty king 'Rathotis' who, according to Manetho, an ancient historian, had reigned for nine years a figure which conforms with Flavius Josephus's version of Manetho's Epitome. The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's intact tomb received worldwide press coverage. It sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's burial mask remains the popular symbol. Exhibits of artifacts from his tomb have toured the world. In February 2010, the results of DNA tests confirmed that Tutankhamun was the son of Akhenaten (mummy KV55) and his sister/wife (mummy KV35YL), whose name is unknown but whose remains are positively identified as "The Younger Lady" mummy found in KV35. The gameplay is a classic first person perspective adventure game with lots of full motion video sequences all in Japanese language. Features: First person perspective; 2D graphics; Prerendered graphics; Ancient Egypt & Mystery themes.
