The Longest Journey and Dreamfall are among some of the finest adventure games ever to be released. They are well-written, excellently produced and full of wonderful, memorable characters that have lived with us long since the games have been finished.
One character, most of all, has gained attention. April Ryan. Winner of numerous character awards, April remains one of the shining examples of a strong female lead in gaming. April’s values, choices, decisions and thoughts guided players through remarkable scenes and engaging interactions.
Even in 2014, April remains a shining example of female leads done right, and stands hands and shoulders over any Niln, Aveline and Chell.
