Byzantine - the betrayal

Ancient relics and modern murder lie at the heart of this rich, action-packed real world adventure set in the crossroads of Europe and Asia: Istanbul, Turkey. Byzantine swept the 1998 EMMA Awards, winning "Best Adult Entertainment" and "Best Fantasy/Adventure Game" as well as the ultimate accolade: "Gold Medal for Excellence" awarded to the best multimedia title of the year across all categories. Byzantine is the flagship game in the Discovery Channel's much anticipated Planet Explorer line. Super-immersive 360-degree photographic environments, 45 minutes of full-screen video shot on location in exotic Istanbul, puzzles based on mysteries from the ancient past, and a story rooted in real-life modern intrigues, puts players at the heart of an adventure that will keep them guessing until the last perplexing second. Byzantine's ultra-detailed landscape includes recreations of some of the world's most important ancient sites, brought to life through careful research and painstaking computer artistry.
