Nile: An Ancient Egyptian Quest 
Simon & Schuster Interactive

Notes: Nile is a computer game for Windows; Brian 
composed the music for it in 1996. It's a mixture 
of unreleased tracks plus music which previously 
appeared on the soundtrack of Neverwhereand music 
from Generative Music 1. Much of the music accompanies
re-tellings of Egyptian myths and stories narrated by
Kelly McGillis. This is an enjoyable edutainment disc,
but I did wonder at Brian's involvement given his 
public statements about how useless CD-ROM games are. 

Simon & Schuster Interactive used to have a page on it here 
with a link to a sample. In the UK the game is distributed by Z
ablac Entertainment.
