If you are a Kickstarter backer, you should have received the announcement, if not here is the update.

Check out scene video one and two.

Quote
Alpha testing in progress: Beta in the works.

Yes, it's true! We are FINALLY here. We have converted all assets, rendered all of the remaining environments in HD, and wrapped the live video shoot. The team is engaged in rigorous internal testing while we work toward a releasable beta build. If your pledge was eligible for early access beta builds, you will be receiving notice when the beta build is ready for limited release.

Our current challenge is whittling down the mobile build to an acceptable download size without compromising the quality or quantity of this epic adventure. As you already know, ROTS is huge, and we are making every effort to keep the highest quality and quantity of adventure possible.

And we are finishing up the last touches of the in-game hint guide: Book of the Dead Ends™. The interface is very intuitive with each area providing an overhead view with relevant "hot spots" for hint gathering or full-blown solutions, if you wish.

Never Before Scene
Because Riddle of the Sphinx: The Awakening is an HD extended director's cut edition, you will be experiencing a few new scenes, puzzle enhancements, extended gameplay and exploration, and more.

Two such areas are an underground river and this sun-streaming serene cavern that the ancients put in place to... oops, almost gave it away. wink These screen captures give you a glimpse into the environmental effects employed in this enhanced edition.
Enjoy!




Happy Gaming!

I get confused with this effort...is this the re-make of the original or the new game entirely?

Thanks Sheriff

Maybe I am just have my common senior moments but wasn't there talk of a whole new game too or am I confusing this with another game?

It must be me then...now I am battling to remember what the little men in my head are saying to me. Could what I am thinking about being a new game or sequel for Morpheus??? Does that ring someone else bell?

There is a Morpheus Remake in the works but not a new one.
There is a new Schizm coming. Could that be it?

Are you thinking of The 13th Doll?
That was/is a fan game, not a remake or anything to do with the original developers of 7th Guest or 11th Hour.
https://the13thdoll.com/
It's also completed and available for purchase, though I had tech issues with it and it wouldn't get me past a black screen at the start of the game. I think it didn't like Windows 7 and wanted 10, despite that the requirements listed Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 as all being compatible. It wanted me to install some mystery meat software for Win7 compatibility so I couldn't just install the game and go. Apparently the software worked for some people's Windows 7 computers, but it didn't for mine.

You can find links for the Morpheus remake (not really a remake so much as some HD graphics) at Gameboomers' "Upcoming Adventure Games Release" webpage
https://www.gameboomers.com/Adventureinformation.htm

I agree that there are too many "remakes" and similar out and it is confusing what is actually "new" (or at least unplayed) or not. There was another Kickstarter for a Riddle of the Sphinx "remake," and I donated to that one only to have it cancelled or something. I tend to like the original games from the 1990's rather than the "remakes." The original games work better and controls are more logical. And I like everything you need for the game to be in the game box. It's so much easier to have a paper manual than to have to click around all over looking for a manual on the computer. That's one advantage of Nintendo DS games like Professor Layton series -- they're about as close as you can get to how games were sold in the 1990's, with the game cartridge included in a little snap case with a paper manual. The puzzles are not super hard and are fun. The biggest problem is the small, grainy low resolution screen on the DS.

Thank you Jenny smile

It may have been the 13th Doll, I am not sure. The Poisoned Pawn (remake of Overseer) is one I am anxiously waiting for.

Excellent! Great news this remake is almost ready for prime time. I tried to get the original one to play several years back on my Win7 PC but ran into too many technical problems

I used to own this game and if I remember correctly, it was first person and made me terribly dizzy. Am I remembering correctly? Will this be first person or third person?
