Alright, my girlfriend sprung it on me me this morning.   She remembers very little but said she just remembered playing a game from the earlier 90's that was based in Egypt.  She described the gameplay as solving puzzles and collecting tear dropped shaped crystals in temples and pyramids, and specifically remembered walking through the desert with blowing sand to talk to the Sphynx and that the gods were very upset with her.  I know this is a long shot but I can't find anything about it on the net and I'd like to hunt it down for her.  Anyone with some ideas?

Is it a point and click game?



Yes, she believes it was.



Was it actually based in Egypt, or just in a desert/pyramid surrounding? Maybe Ravenloft: Stone Prophet?



The only teeth strong enough to eat other teeth.

I'm guessing one of the Quest for Glory games, II I think?

-edit-

Whoops, nevermind, I should actually read.  Thought you said Egypt-like XD

Or maybe Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, I recall going into Egypt and collecting crystals in that.

A tale from the desert? The Shivers?

SuperDave, you RULE! Ravenloft: Stone Prophet was exactly the game she was talking about! Thanks so much, I have no idea how you picked it out from my spotty description. If I had a cookie, it would now be yours!
