Egypt: 1156 B.C.: Tomb of the Pharaoh is a 1999 adventure video game by Canal+Multimédia, Cryo Interactive Entertainment and Réunion des Musées Nationaux. It was published by R&P Electronic Media for the Microsoft Windows and PlayStation (PAL region only).


Ramosé, a young Theban, is on a mission to exonerate his father, who has been accused of pillaging the tomb of Seti I. In the vault at dawn, he unveils a stone showing a map of the tomb and a monkey, hinting to Hori, a former draughtsman. Ramosé then sets off to the village of Deir el-Medina where he finds Hori lying dead in his cellar, along with clues alluding to a carpenter bound for the embalmers' workshop - where he discovers a wider plot the next day. He skillfully manages to pass for one of the conspirators and is led to a tomb where a burial is being held. Ramosé descends to the funerary chamber. He is immured but manages to escape via a tunnel which leads him to the site of a tomb in construction of another noble, Panéhesy, where a mourner awaits him. She leads him to the villa of the noble, who has organized a large festivity. Passing for one of the guests, he finds a map of the Festival Hall of Thutmose III in Karnak. At the temple, Ramosé finds parts of the pillage and documents alleging Ptahnéfer, a close relative of the pharaoh. His father is exonerated.

The game was followed by two sequels, Egypt 2: The Heliopolis Prophecy and Egypt 3: The Egyptian Prophecy.
