Check out a comparison of the Furniture Chamber between the legacy and HD rendering. The original employed a procedural fog to simulate dust, however we felt as though that washed out the scene. In Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening the dust and other environmental effects are live, and much more subtle. The level of detail, dramatic lighting, and more realistic setting lend to an even more immersive adventure experience.

Hey all! Check out Jonez’s blog, he has been great to work with and shared another article of ours:
On November 3rd, it was widely reported that French scientists made a discovery of the century! They found a large mysterious void in the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Now, you have the chance to explore it for yourself…
MOSELLE (SAINT LOUIS), Missouri, Nov 7, 2017 — National Geographic magazine stated that the mysterious void just discovered will not be explorable, since there are no known corridors connecting the Grand Gallery to this “void.” Coincidentally, an Egyptian adventure game has mirrored these staggering developments.
Old World Studios, the developers of Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening, conducted a tremendous amount of research, to make an adventure game that modeled all of the existing monuments and chambers to exact specifications. But they went even further by building access to the many speculated hidden chambers and corridors thought to be within the Great Pyramid.
Charlie Tobler, co-developer and lead programmer, states: “We took some artistic license, of course, but much of what you explore is true to life as if you were to explore the Great Pyramid and Sphinx in person. Now people can experience one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, without all the red tape and expense involved in an expedition of that magnitude.”
“Riddle of the Sphinx came about because Karen and I wanted to explore what lay beyond the existing tombs and chambers in the Great Pyramid. We started with actual archaeological discoveries and scientific speculation and turned those into virtual-reality in Riddle of the Sphinx,” said Jeff Tobler, original co-designer/developer.

Jeff and Karen Tobler founded Old World Studios with the vision of allowing the exploration of real and fictional “old worlds” virtually through realistic and captivating adventure games. Now, with Charlie and Marta Tobler, their son and daughter-in-law joining the team, they have decided to take their epic adventures to the next level, allowing both new and veteran explorers to experience the wonders that have mesmerized players worldwide. Old World Studios is a subsidiary of LifeTree Games, a company with the purpose of providing exciting, yet wholesome, entertainment.
