What does it say at Big Fish? They usually list the compatible operating systems.

Big Fish does not list it as a supported operating system.

There is a seller here who other GameBoomers have used, who has tweaked the game to run on Windows 10. That would be my suggestion if you really want to play the game. He offers excellent support.

I read this Post, and got curious.
I tried to install The Omega Stone
(the successor of The Sphinx) and it did install
and played but the problem was that the cursor
was very hard to controll (as well as in the options) as in -game.
I installed in compatibility mode (windows XP)

What a pity, The intro was quit nice! smirk wave2

Robert.

Wasn't the son of the original developer remaking the Riddle of the Sphinx to look better and play on newer systems and hand helds?

The kickstarter was a success, I am a backer. Are you not able to see the updates on the page? The game is coming along nicely.

One of my favorite games. Hard to wait to play it in HD much better than a replay of the original.

WOW! That would be great if the game gets updated. Ana will it be able to play on an IMac computer as well?

This is the closest info I can find: "We are releasing ROTS Awakening for BOTH mobile and desktop. Shortly afterward we hope to release to AppleTV, too!"
