Ankh is a point&click adventure in the style of the Lucas Arts games (Monkey Island series, Day of Tentacle etc.). It's about a young Egyptian called Assil who had a party in a pyramid, but got a curse as he dropped a mummy. Your task is to get rid of it...
This is the Special Edition retail release, but not the Linux Special Edition. There is no copy protection, which is very nice to users.
Needs an old version of Wine or changes to the configuration
Use wine-0.9.31 .. 0.9.43 to play this game with the default Direct3D9 renderer because of several regressions. These old versions should work except the item icons in the inventory may not be drawn correctly (bug #21354).
The maintainer would appreciate if you would find out whether one of these old versions works better than the others.
You can use much more recent versions of Wine (such as 1.1.34/36) if you change bin/release/plugins.cfg to use the GL renderer instead. The speech output issue (bug #21209) may still affect your machine.
