Hello fellow Home-schoolers,

We wanted to let you know about an epic Egyptian adventure that is being rebuilt in real-time 3d by a homeschooling family for other Christians, but also for those who do not know Christ. Smile (The official press release with more information is contained near the bottom)

Here's what you will be able to do: Explore secret chambers. Discover hidden tombs. And unravel an ancient Riddle entombed by the ancient Egyptians, in real-time 3D!

--- PRESS RELEASE ---
Christian Game Developers Announce Educational, Family-friendly, Christ-centered Egyptian adventure of Sphinx and Great Pyramid!

Jeff and Karen Tobler, Christian game developers, are “rebuilding” the Giza Sphinx and Great Pyramid — one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — in detailed, breathtaking real-time 3D. The husband-wife team have turned to Kickstarter to fund their epic Historical Egyptian adventure re-make.

MOSELLE (SAINT LOUIS), Missouri, May 5, 2014 — LifeTree Games — a Christian-based video game studio — announced the production of biblical-based historically accurate Egyptian learning and adventure game, Riddle of the Sphinx. Husband and wife team, Jeff and Karen Tobler, have turned to Kickstarter (http://kck.st/1lCTlJQ) to fund this real-time 3d adventure.

Riddle of the Sphinx is a puzzle/adventure game that takes the player through the compelling archaeological ruins and history of ancient Egypt while uncovering Biblical evidence answering age-old mysteries surrounding the Great Pyramid and Sphinx. Specifically, the Old Testament is used to show chronological synchronization of the Great Pyramid and the Bible. Players of all ages will have access to amazing life-like real-time 3D environments in this family-friendly archaeological adventure game.

Set within and around the ancient Egyptian monuments, Riddle of the Sphinx is backed by years of extensive research and painstaking recreation of the existing Giza Plateau, Great Sphinx, and Great Pyramid — one of the existing Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Major levels of the game involve exploring real-life archaeological finds, then taking those discoveries to the next level. Players assume their role as close friend and confidant of famous archaeologist Sir Gil Blythe Geoffreys as he excavates the site of the Sphinx. The tale begins as Sir Geoffreys realizes he has unwittingly unleashed an ancient curse while translating a key scroll. Sir Geoffreys dies, and the scroll mysteriously disappears. The player’s task is to locate the missing scroll, finish Sir Geoffrey’s translation, and solve the time-worn puzzle before . . . well, we won’t spoil the intricately woven plot.

What took the ancient Egyptians half a million workers and decades of grueling manual labor to complete, Jeff and Karen originally completed in just under 6 years. But now, they are utilizing the latest in 3d technology to create absolutely stunning settings for the game’s epic storyline, bringing an even more realistic immersive experience to exploring the Sphinx and Great Pyramid, as well as the huge scope of historical discoveries including hidden corridors, lost tombs, and secret chambers that tie to the Bible’s historical accounts.

“One aspect of Riddle of the Sphinx that intrigued me was the age-range of players who were impacted. It surprised us that parents were playing with their children, older house-bound players could ‘escape’ through the game and even long-distance engaged couples played over the phone. It was really encouraging that Riddle of the Sphinx was the tool for people to share time with each other and create lasting memories. We are excited to see new relationships forged and more memories made with the new real-time 3d version,” said Karen Tobler, Co-Creator of Riddle of the Sphinx.

“Riddle of the Sphinx allows players to immerse themselves in a Christ-centered, Egyptian-based adventure for countless hours of intellectual puzzles and non-violent archaeological exploration of the Great Pyramid. One of the remarkable observations a Christian will have after playing Riddle of the Sphinx is the stark powerlessness and crumbling ruins of ancient Egypt’s most renowned idols,” shared Jeff Tobler, co-developer of Riddle of the Sphinx.

LifeTree Games is offering unique Kickstarter pledge rewards to backers of the 15th anniversary edition including backers having their art immortalized within Riddle of the Sphinx.
