About this game

Battle the amok mummy of a disreputable love potion huckster while filming the story of the century! There is a news story here bigger than any antiques show. How will you cover it without getting killed and to what lengths will you go to bring home the story of the century?

"A Mummy Is Not An Antique" is a 52,000 word interactive novel by Randy Condon, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You play as the producer of a PBS antiques appraisal show, dutifully starting another on-site episode while managing the eccentric personalities of your cast and crew. Events go pear-shaped when a guest arrives with a mummified human body, allegedly the corpse of the local legendary Bog Mummy. Quickly a menagerie of forest shamans, a priest, show-security, a southern gentleman and his supposed grandchildren squabble with increasing fervor over ownership of the body.

• Play as male, female, or non-binary.
• Enjoy a comedy-horror adventure battling (and filming) the supernatural.
• Trade quips with the mummy of Professor Thadeus Frost, salesman extraordinaire of love potion and other dubious concoctions.
• Discover the secrets of the mysterious scroll behind all these shenanigans.
• Risk you and your crew's life and limb to get the story. But how far is too far? You decide.
• Five different endings available, depending upon your choices.

I'm not sure why this has received so many 1* reviews as I don't think it warrented that myself. It contains humour which is hard to write to everyone's taste I guess. Its an original idea, take one of those very proper antique appraisal shows and add a live mummy into the mix.

I actually purchased this game. The demo does not do this story any justice because of how short it is! The personality of the mummy himself in game is hilarious. I expected this to be far worse than it was. Negative comments. One person said he didn't bother to finish but it had five endings which sounds improbable. How would he know? Another said it was rushed, I didn't feel that way. Another said, no romance and gave two stars. Harsh. Unwarranted. Criticism. This story deserves more reads.
