Anyone remember THAT shit? Awwwwww yeah getting nostalgic.
In the year 2308, Earth was shaken after an alien ship arrived at the Airborne Metropolis of Caldoria Heights and delivered a message. It came from the Cyrollans who, after seeing that mankind was no longer a threat to itself, invited Earth to consider a proposal to join a Symbiotry of Peaceful Beings, where they would share knowledge and culture with the other alien races. After that, the ship departed, saying they would come back in ten years to receive Earth's response.

Goddamn that is so 1990's. Shit yeah.

GO

    The second Journeyman Project game, Buried in Time, is on Good Old Games.

    Everyone should buy it.

    And yes, Legacy of Time is the best one.

    YES

    THIS IS A GOOD THING.

    Buried in Time was my thing back in the day.

    edit: Hard as shit though for young me. I learned a lot of stuff but I never made it past the Mayan puzzle box

    I still have my Buried in Time discs somewhere. If there hadn't just been a huge steam sale, I might have reinstalled them.

    So hard in fact that the first time I finished it was about 6 months ago, after owning it since release. I even listened to the audiobook of the novel trying to discern some clues.

    That goddamn music room.

    yeah I always assumed the music room was intentionally impossible

    luckily I just looked at the back of the Cd case and the finished puzzle was there in a picture

    how did you figure it out?

    The same way. I was putting the CD back in the case and for the first time flipped it back over to the left instead of to the right, putting the back of the case facing up.

    I had a facepalm 12 years in the making.

    maybe it was an early anti-piracy thing? you could only solve the puzzle if you had the original case

    No, I'm pretty sure it was possible from looking at the arrangement of the tables in the dining room. I could just never get them to line up right.

    The first Journeyman Project happened to be my first PC game. Came with my Packard Bell computer back in 2000 (it was a five year old computer)

    They are fucking awesome games. The first one still holds a special place in my heart.

    I can remember running this on my old 486 dx2-66. Never was able to beat it though. I think I made it through the Mars maze once by pure luck.

    I played through all of Legacy of Time with distorted audio.

    I kept telling myself that I'd stop playing soon, and do something to fix the soundcard issue.

    But the game was still too playable even with everybody sounding like they were underwater.

    We'll get back there someday.

    Hahaha shit, I forgot how small the actual view window was on the first game. There's so much shit going on in that interface!

    Legacy of Time was my favorite. And I know some people thought Arthur got irritating but I consistently laughed my ass off at some of the jokes he would make. I thought that was one of the better video game representations of Atlantis I've ever seen, as if it were just a really advanced Minoan civilization and none of this magical alien power crystal bullshit.

    edit: Though of course there was an alien artifact there but weird shit wasn't in your face all the time you were walking around.
