The Egyptians started with the base, an elementary notion that seems to have escaped Tim Schafer and the team at Double Fine. Instead of the core gameplay and mechanics, the focus appears to have been on the secondary details, like humor and the production values. Of course, that means these details are far more refined than almost any game out there. It helps that Tim Schafer proves he is the king of comedy in video games with a ridiculous story and hilarious script that is far beyond anything else that has appeared in the medium."
