Having long studied ancient Egyptian lore, you’re intrigued by recent reports of structures appearing in the Sahara Desert via new satellite imaging. The locations seem familiar to you on a map, as they correspond to burial sites of the elite Mejai, powerful warriors blessed with unnaturally long life by the high-priest Harkhuf for the purpose of protecting the pharaoh. However, a blessing in life may be a curse in death… Ancient texts mention these warriors turned mad exceeding the bounds of mortality, bringing death and ruin to those around them. To stop them, legend tells of a group of brave Egyptians who lured each Mejai into separate tombs using invaluable relics, and then trapped them inside forever…

While this story may be a myth, you feel obligated to investigate, as the historical and monetary value of such a discovery would be beyond your wildest dreams. But be careful - if the legends are true, the Mejai have been sulking in rage all this time, yearning to wreak havoc on humanity as revenge for their imprisonment.

Gather your team of archaeologists and treasure hunters in this co-op thriller and discover the truth behind the legend. Play solo, with a group of friends, or find a public match online.

Take advantage of every tool at your disposal to navigate through ancient Egyptian ruins and survive the perils within. Alternatively, you can choose to provide intel to your teammates from outside the ruins in the safety of your excavation tent, using such tools as the radar system or motion sensor array to detect activity.

The main objective of the game is to search the ruins for each relic that was used to lure and trap the cursed Mejai many millennia ago. Each playthrough, or round, will include one main relic to collect, as well as other collectables and loot in the form of treasure and lore.

How you accomplish this is up to you and your team.

  • Split up to cover more ground, or stay as a group to increase survivability.
  • Get in and out, or let curiosity get the better of you and explore every path to reveal the mysteries and lore of the Mejai.
  • Give in to greed and linger in the darkness to find treasure of unparalleled worth, or be content leaving with your life.

Be weary of whatever choice you make, as you and your team will soon discover you are not alone beneath the cursed sands…

  • Procedurally generated levels and randomized AI to ensure no two playthroughs are ever the same and that you'll always have a unique experience
  • Encounter several different Mejai, each with unique characteristics and abilities
  • Utilize your choice of archaeological equipment to increase your chances of survival

  • PC & VR Crossplay Supported

    When you die, you will have the option to return as a servant of the Mejai. Will you hold on to a semblance of your former self and help the remaining survivors, or demonstrate loyalty to your new master?
