The Long Journey Home Will Blast Off May 30th on Windows – May 13, 2017 

Based on community feedback, Daedalic has released the first major update to its RPG The Long Journey Home (launched May 30th). A new Story Mode will offer a a smoother introduction to the game and a way for players to experience the aliens, questing and other parts of the diverse and colorful galaxy without being burdened by the fight for survival and some of the harsher dangers of unplanned intergalactic travel.

Story Mode provides a friendlier galaxy to explore; resources are more abundant and valuable; aliens are more generous with their trade agreements, and there are more planets with Earth-like conditions and fewer extreme hazards.

Adventure Mode will still be the ideal way to play The Long Journey Home, but Story Mode is a great way to get into the game, come to grips with its systems and simply enjoy the Journey.

The dev team has issued a statement on Facebook that addresses the recent update. Daedalic will continue to monitor player feedback and implement improvements to enhance the game.

About The Long Journey Home:

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

It was only supposed to be a short trip. But when your jump drive malfunctions, you and a mismatched crew of specialists along for the ride find yourselves trapped and alone on the wrong side of the galaxy. The only way back is through.

Forge alliances with strange alien races. Explore distant worlds for the secrets and technologies they hide. Harness your crew’s skills, from archeology to diplomacy. Make deals and moral decisions that change the universe. Do whatever it takes to survive.

In every game, enter a new galaxy. Will you find yourself welcomed by traders and noble warrior knights, or surrounded by pirates, psychopaths, and an unspeakable cosmic horror that threatens to snuff out the stars themselves?

One destination. Endless adventures.

Where will your Journey take you?

The Long Journey Home is currently available for Windows on Steam at a time-limited 10% discount.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
