This game is one of the best adventures I ever played. It has witty characters, some extremely nice puzzles but foremost the story... There's nothing (even not earthly religion) that goes above that.
TLJ tells the story about April Ryan, a young girl who gets tired of country life, being ♥♥♥♥♥ed around by her father (no, it's not really what you think but it comes close), and wants to go to pursue her creative talent in the big city of Newport.
She isn't there for long as she starts to experience dreams that aren't quite right. Not long after an old guy starts reading her mind, telling her she's important. Reluctant as she is she answers his call and embarks on an adventure transcending earth and even the universe in some ways.
The game is full of surprising twists and turns. In many other games you're given objectives, but in this game, the premise is being given to you in an old temple by a wise man, telling you about the ritual which will save the universe from the ultimate chaos.
The great thing about this game is that as you go forth, the quests that seem like detours and sidequest bring you from one location to another and stumble upon people who happen to know more. The whole game you're gonna have the feeling that faith will bring you where you need to be, rather than waypoints and quest goals.
Since 2000, the story of this game has captured me more than any of the greatest games that I have played so far. So I'm also grateful it's next sequel will be on Steam this fall!
