It has been rumoured that their souls have been sucked into Khufu’s tomb to act as his guards for eternity.
This chamber is cursed; all who remain in it after 60 minutes will die. You have 1-hour to find the treasure and escape; otherwise you will, as the others, be forced to remain at the Pharaoh’s side forever. Can you light the Flame of the Gods and escape?”
