Set in ancient Egypt, A Tale in the Desert lets players work together to build the perfect society. Through the Internet, you can connect to thousands of players who exist within the same world. The game focuses on long-term planning and goals rather than combat. Goals include the creation of great works of art and architecture, becoming a powerful leader, and building wealth. As you build your society, you can set laws, unlock new technologies, trade with other players, and increase your powers by performing ritual tests.
