Riddle of the Sphinx Spoilers

Welcome to the new Computer Game Spoilers section of my gaming website. I added this section because I recently received questions about the plots of two different games which, to my surprise and embarrassment, I had totally forgotten the answers to. Then, to my further surprise, I was unable to find any existing website that would refresh my memory about the plots of computer games... lots of puzzle solutions, but no basic plot summaries.

So I figured I'd better write some of them down while they're still fresh in my mind, just in case I or anybody else wants to refer to them at some point in the future (or in case anybody suffers a major game glitch and just wants to know what was supposed to happen in the end-- I get letters like this from time to time.) If you haven't finished Riddle of the Sphinx yet and you don't want the plot of this game to be revealed to you, then you don't want to read this page. Please go back to my main Riddle of the Sphinx page, where I give tips and reviews without giving away any of its plot.

But if you are looking for plot spoilers, just scroll further down the page to find them!

Plot Summary

In the beginning of the game, you learn that your friend, Gil Geoffreys, has gone missing and has left you a message that he fears for his life and wants you to continue on with his work and discover what's hidden in the secret chamber he has dicovered beneath the Sphinx. After completing all the puzzles and avoiding the curses of some crabby Egyptian gods, you eventually open the secret chamber to find... the Ark of the Covenant. (What is this doing here? The ancient Jews left Egypt during the time of Exodus, remember the whole thing with Moses?) Then, Gil pops up behind you and tells you just kidding, he was never really in danger at all, he just faked his death so that you would help him get the chamber open. Pretty unsatisfying resolution, but there it is. Then he tells a boring story about God doing battle with the Egyptian gods (um, what?) and invites you to look into the Ark, at which point the game ends. At the beginning of the next game, The Omega Stone, it will be revealed that looking into the Ark struck you unconscious for days. Gil apparently is not a very good friend after all.

Character Subplots and Secrets

None other than Gil's faked death; there are no other characters in this game.
