The Longest Journey OST: The Music of Stark and Arcadia

February 24, 2013 in Articles, Media, Music, The Games, The Longest Journey, Thirteen Chapters articles

>> WARNING: minor spoilers for The Longest Journey ahead! <<

The Longest Journey OST

I want to talk a little about The Longest Journey‘s original soundtrack (OST). One of the most important things that hooked me on the game, even from the first time I saw the trailer, was the music (composed by Bjørn Arve Lagim).

Let It Snow In Marcuria

December 19, 2012 in Dreamfall, Dreamfall Chapters, Media, Screenshots, The Games, The Longest Journey

Ragnar Tornquist posted a picture of a very early Dreamfall Chapters version of what looks like Marcuria. It looks like winter is still present in the jewel of the Northlands. Let it snow!

Dreamfall Chapters is alive

And then there’s also this:

There isn’t all that much to see, but it’s still nice to see that the team is hard at work in their new environment.
Go team! You can do it!

The Longest Journey and Dreamfall playthroughs

In other news, GameSpot US staff members Kevin VanOrd and Tom McShea recently did a live stream on Twitch of themselves playing The Longest Journey. Later, when they started playing Dreamfall, Tom McShea was replaced by Carolyn Petit. Each of the sessions took about 2 hours.
You can watch it right here if you have the time.

Kevin mentioned that The Longest Journey is his favorite game ever created. Tom was still new to it. Maybe that was partly the cause of the (in my opinion) awkward silences and unrelated viewer questions/comments.

After about 30 minutes though, they both warmed up to playing the game together and talking about it. There was even someone commenting who claimed to be Ragnar Tornquist himself. I won’t say if that’s true or not, but I think this tweet says it all.

Places of The Longest Journey

November 18, 2012 in Articles, Screenshots, The Longest Journey, Thirteen Chapters articles

Maybe with the exception of most Wii games and those like it, playing computer games isn’t really a physically challenging activity. You’re mainly just sitting on a chair or couch, pushing buttons and moving a mouse with your hand or some analog sticks with your thumbs.

But the interesting thing is: even while remaining at one spot, you’re exploring a lot of different (and hopefully interesting) places. The Longest Journey was one of those games that gave me that great feeling of exploration. It gave me both places of science, and those of magic to travel to and discover.

For the few of you who haven’t yet played The Longest Journey: spoilers ahead!

The Longest Journey concept art

November 17, 2012 in Concept Art, Media, The Longest Journey

Newport VeniceLet’s take a few steps back and take a look at a time before The Longest Journey was part of our lives.

A dedicated team of creative Norwegians were hard at work, setting the groundwork for what would become one of the most loved adventure games of all time.

A story outline had been written, and the world it took place in was being fleshed out by talented artists.
