Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals is a point and click adventure game developed by White Birds Productions and based on the graphics novels of Enki Bilal's The Nikopol Trilogy.


The year is 2023 and Paris is governed by a power-hungry dictator. As Alcide Nikopol you try to find a way of joining the underground rebellion and help stop the dictator's iron fist rule. The history takes a turn towards the weird, as Nikopol finds out that his father - an astronaut sent into orbital exile in cryopreservation - may be alive and well in the city. At the same time, a strange pyramid hovers over Paris, and a rumour of Egyptian gods residing in it spreads like wildfire.


The game received its fair share of positive reviews, earning a score of 8.2/10 from IGN[1], 8.0/10 from GameZone[2], 8.2 from Digital Chumps[3] and a final score of 'GREAT GAME' at Diehard GameFAN.[4] The game tended to score especially high on its graphics, story, sound and puzzles.

However, not every review of the game was complementary. Adventure Gamers gave it only 2/5 stars. The review criticized several aspects of the game, including its linear nature, illogical puzzles, and, what the site felt to be a particularly confusing story.[5] Metacritic gave it a 68/100 score[6].
