The Longest Journey

Longest Journey, The - Cover art

Between science and magic, between order and chaos, between Stark and Arcadia, there is an ancient balance. For thousands of years, this balance has weighed the scales of the cosmos evenly, ensuring harmony between the two worlds. But now, in an age of great turmoil, chaos threatens to turn the scales and bring our most terrifying dreams to life. The Guardian of the balance has abandoned his throne… the armies of the Vanguard are advancing… a storm is coming… and the fate of the worlds is in the hands of one person. Her name is April. She is a Shifter with the power to walk between worlds. But the tides of Chaos gain momentum with every passing second, and those who would be gods will not stand idly by. How, then, can one person prevail against impossible odds… April’s future is shrouded in a veil of mystery, and the journey ahead is treacherous and winding. A journey not only through twin worlds, but into her own heart and soul.

Remastered version released for iOS in November 2014.
