It was a long time in coming, but the acclaimed children's adventure Great Journey: Mr. Penguin's Letter has finished its own great journey to North American shores.
First previewed by Adventure Gamers in 2003 and released in the UK last year, the North American version is being published by Meridian4, the new company also responsible for Daemonica.
In Great Journey, players choose to join either ten year old Tony or Annie on their quest to save Antarctica, with stops ranging from "small port towns to hot, sandy deserts, through damp, colorful jungles and all the way to the ice and snow of the South Pole." Along the way, players will need to "play soccer with an African shaman, save the port from a garbage flood, feed the monkey, photograph whales and do lots of other crazy stuff." And with its strong ecological storyline, Great Journey also "promotes empathy and understanding of today's environmental issues."
