In an alternate Cairo infused with the otherworldly, the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities investigate disturbances between the mortal and the (possibly) divine. What starts off as an odd suicide case for Special Investigator Fatma el-Sha’arawi leads her through the city’s underbelly as she encounters rampaging ghouls, saucy assassins, clockwork angels, and a plot that could unravel time itself.”

    Exquisite Asian art. It is reminiscent of works like “Spirited Away,” “Steamboy” and “The Wind Rises.” The 2D game images lose something from the painted/drawn works which would make great visuals for a more cinematic interactive game (like Don Bluth’s Dragon’s Lair/Space Ace). [Now that I think of it, imagine an interactive Miyazaki experience, being able to guide a character through a film like Spirited Away but in a pick-a-path form with multiple possible endings/outcomes instead of dying at every wrong turn.]

    The “steampunk-ish” Egyptian story also reminds me of the anime R.O.D. (Read or Die) in which historical figures get a sort of modern makeover.
