Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals is a point and click adventure game developed by White Birds Productions and based on the graphics novels of Enki Bilal's The Nikopol Trilogy.

Plot[edit]

The year is 2023 and Paris is governed by a power-hungry dictator. As Alcide Nikopol you try to find a way of joining the underground rebellion and help stop the dictator's iron fist rule. The history takes a turn towards the weird, as Nikopol finds out that his father - an astronaut sent into orbital exile in cryopreservation - may be alive and well in the city. At the same time, a strange pyramid hovers over Paris, and a rumour of Egyptian gods residing in it spreads like wildfire.

Reception[edit]

The game received fairly positive reviews, earning a score of 8.2/10 from IGN,[1] 8.0/10 from GameZone,[2] 8.2 from Digital Chumps[3] and a final score of 'GREAT GAME' at Diehard GameFAN.[4] The game was rated highly for its graphics, story, sound and puzzles.

However, not every review of the game was favourable. Adventure Gamers gave it 2/5 stars, with the reviewer criticizing several aspects of the game, including its linear nature, illogical puzzles, and, what they felt to be a particularly confusing story.[5] Currently, it scores 68/100 on Metacritic, based on 14 reviews.[6]
