Through an interactive journey on the felucca (Egyptian sail boat) down the Nile you explore the modern and ancient Egypt. Native board games (e.g., a cribbage-like game called Senet) give a feeling of presence in Egypt. To your destination you can sail by cursors (in 360 degree view of surrounding) or by using a map. Choosing an object on the screen starts the movie, but also you can gain information by pictures, text and audio descriptions. Also you can write all that you will see in on-line journal, which clears at every start of a new game.
