    Summary

    You, as the player, are a journalist who has been summoned by the aged explorer who has been "branded" with questionable credibility for over 50 years. The old explorer's tale of travel to the mysterious Central American country, called Amerzone, and his story claiming that the large egg that he brought back was associated with native Indian tribal beliefs and rituals involving the proliferation of great white birds that fly continuously from the time that they are born and never land seems incredible, yet curiosity and the opportunity for a good story probably will get the best of you.

    Main features

    • A stunning adventure game for a mass market audience.
    • Amazing graphics, a unique « atmosphere ».
    • A talented author, Benoît Sokal, well known comic books drawer.
