Egyptian inspired Steam PC games worth checking out

Egypt and its wealth of history has inspired numerous media representations over the years, including blockbuster films, books and video games.

Whether it's ancient tombs filled with wonders and evil or the undead making a U-turn from the afterlife to join the living, Egyptian-based games tend to use a similar narrative along the lines of 'undead monsters, shoot them all' or 'destroy that item thingy and break the curse'.

Whatever the narrative, wherever video game developers explore within Egypt's heritage and mythology, gamers have had some pretty awesome games to play. From casual to open-world RPGs, we've picked a number of Egyptian inspired Steam PC games worth checking out.

Assassin's Creed Origins

Assassin's Creed Origins

The beginning of the Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed Origins takes players back to where it all began in Ancient Egypt. Exploring an impressive open-world setting, you take on the role of Medjay Bayek of Siwa - seeking revenge against the The Order of the Ancients, an early form of the Templar Order seen throughout the Assassin's Creed franchise.

From assassinating targets to fighting off hippos, giant scorpions and mini boss fights called the 'Trials of the Gods', Origins takes the exploration enjoyed throughout many of the AC games before and adds a much-improved combat system, as well as an alternative to 'Eagle Vision' - which now sees players control Senu the eagle who can scout targets and objectives from the sky and also attack enemies.

Titan Quest

Titan Quest

Set in Ancient Egypt, Greece and the Silks Road to Asia, isometric action RPG Titan Quest sees players jump into a world filled with randomly-generated dangerous creatures. Using a mixture of magic and real-time hack 'n slash combat, gamers will travel across this vast environment completing quests, visiting cities and towns to acquire items and trade, and improving their character via skill tree-based options called Masteries.

Fight, improve and move closer to finding the evil Telkines responsible for unleashing evil upon the world. Ten years on from its initial release, the 2016-released Titan Quest Anniversary Edition features restored and improved multiplayer functionality, as well as Improved performance and mod support.

Egyptian Senet

Egyptian Senet

Take a mysterious afterlife journey in Egyptian Senet, based on the world's oldest board game found that was actually found in Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb!

In basic terms, Senet is a board game from predynastic and ancient Egypt, and is the earliest known record of a backgammon, checkers and chess-like games. Combining luck and strategy, Egyptian Senet features authentic photos of ancient Egyptian temples - as well as artistically crafted graphics and animation of an ancient stone game board and pieces - set in an echoing, tomb-like chamber.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Traveling through portals to retrieve the stolen magical crowns of Egypt can be a dangerous task, so it's best to bring your 'mummy' along for support.

Action-adventure Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy sees players embark on a quest to track down the stolen crowns and fight mythical monster along the way. Sphinx has an array of skills at his disposal, while his sidekick 'Mummy' uses a more stealthily approach by avoiding enemies, solving puzzles and sabotaging right under the enemy's nose.

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade

It's arriving later this month, and the countless reviews of the game from hands-on public events and behind-the-scenes look tells us that Strange Brigade is shaping up to be a top game.
