The Long Journey Home - Update 14.06.2017 - ENGLISH

Dear mizzurani friends,

we are releasing an update that fixes faulty encounter collision boxes. You should no longer get stuck on jumping into an encounter or into any other encounter situation. We also took this opportunity to add two minor fixes: first, in-game full screen mode switching and 'ALT-Enter' should now work properly in combination with the respective command line switches ('-fullscreen' and '-windowed'). Second, overall loading times should be improved slightly and perceivably when loading into the star system map.

Your saves and option settings are not affected by the update.

Tendrils crossed,

your TLJH Team

  • Fixed a bug that lead to players jumping into a wreckage model
  • Slightly improved loading times concerning the star system map
  • Removed a “crackling” sound effect from the ship menu that could stack by accident
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent ALT+ENTER from working in native or windowed fullscreen mode

  • Fixed some interception issues:
    Quest “The Vitruvian Human” (Glukkt Medical Scan)
    Quest “Patient Grasshopper” (Wolphax Squire Temrach)
    Quest “The Grand Tournament”
  • Quest “Shorter Journey Home”: Reeve survivors now want to be taken to Reeve planets only
  • Quest “Reclaimer List”: Quest now ends, if the last Reclaimer List is sold

General Bugs & Tweaks:
  • Several dialog fixes for the Cueddhaest
  • Fixed some shields not working anymore when damaged
  • Raised the chances of avoiding zombies in an Avulco ruin
  • Smaller tweaks and fixes

“The way it moves between moments of wonder, humour and tragedy makes The Long Journey Home a rare pleasure among science fiction games.”

“Interacting with different alien races makes the universe in the game feel vivid and alive – that’s something The Long Journey Home does way better than other games in the past.”
90% – Gamereactor

“The game can’t teach you everything in tutorial after tutorial. Thank goodness. You’d never start your doomed mission. But you’ll have to be patient with yourself. You know so little going into this.”

About This Game

There are a million worlds in the galaxy. Only one of them is Home.

It was supposed to be a short test run - a quick flight to Alpha Centauri and back. But when mankind’s first experimental jump drive goes wrong, a misfit crew finds itself trapped on the wrong side of the universe - alone, injured, falling apart. The only way back… is through.

Explore an endlessly shifting universe. Form alliances with strange aliens, from the noble Wolphax Knights to cruel-minded Ilitza slaver empire. Harness your crew’s skills in everything from research to archeology to diplomacy. Learn the laws of an often hostile universe, and make tough decisions that may change it forever. Do whatever it takes to get back to Earth.

The Long Journey Home combines the endless freedom of space with a new open questing system that always leaves you in command. Deliver the stranded Glukkt to his homeworld as he asks, or to your new slaver friends? Attempt to make allies with everyone, or pin your hopes on the tougher races, and hope they never turn on you? Jump by jump, make hard decisions and live with the consequences, in a universe that is never the same twice.

One mission. Endless adventures.

Where will your Journey take you?


Endless Space
Explore a living, procedurally generated universe inspired by both classic and modern Science Fiction. Meet different aliens. Find different stories. Take different risks. Learn the secrets of the universe and with them, new possibilities.

Hidden stories
Raid alien tombs full of traps and treasure. Compete in the galaxy’s greatest combat tournament. Find and research strange artifacts, and use your crew’s skills to find out whether that old skull is just a piece of bone, or the Holy Grail of an aggressive new species.

A crew worth leading
Choose four out of ten experts, all with personality as well as specialties. Far from just stats, you’ll come to know them as they share their feelings, their fears, their excitement and their concerns on the trip and your decisions. Learn how best to use their skills to help the others… and who might be willing to sacrifice themselves to get the others back Home.
