Amerzone: The Explorer's Legacy is a first-person role-playing adventure game in the style of Myst. You're cast as a journalist on an extraordinary quest. Inside a lighthouse in France, you find a magical egg, the progenitor of a race of white birds who spend their entire existence flying - from birth to death, without ever landing. Valenbois, the old explorer who lives in the lighthouse, stole the egg from a Central American tribe in a country called Amerzone. Now dying, he begs you to return the egg to its rightful home.
Puzzle solvers looking for a serious challenge will love Amerzone. The game takes you above the rain forest and under water as you seek to return the lost egg. Play is as much about sensory experience as it is about unlocking the mystery, with 360-degree environments that bring the jungle to life with lush visuals and crystal-clear sound. Often the story line seems like an excuse to draw you farther through what is essentially an interactive art gallery. The only catch is that there is no guarantee you'll get to the next gorgeous scene. That is dependent upon solving yet another brainteaser.
The game whisks you from France to the far-off land of the imaginary Amerzone, in Central America. The player personifies a young journalist who discovers the legend of the mysterious White Birds. According to the legend, the White Birds guarantee eternal life and prosperity and were offered to the Native Americans as a gift from God. These amazing creatures are born, live, and die in the sky without ever landing. However, years ago, an explorer stole the originating egg even before the birds could be born.
Since that fateful day, the tribe has suffered under a merciless curse and to finally put an end to it, it is up to you, the journalist, to return the egg to its rightful owners. Embark on an adventure that will lead you through the Amerzone and bring you face to face with the secrets of the jungle.
