DescriptionThe third installment of the The Journeyman Project adventure game series, this time utilizing a 1st person perspective with a panoramic view you can rotate in 360 degrees freely. The game casts the player as Gage Blackwood, Agent 5 of the Temporal Security Agency, who must travel back in time visiting Atlantis, El Doraldo and Shangri La. In this journey you must try to capture a rogue TSA agent, Agent 3, and collect several mysterious artifacts left by an ancient alien race to protect Earth from an alien invasion and save time and reality itself.
New to the third game is the Chameleon Suit. No longer must the player avoid being seen while traveling through the past, as they can now disguise themselves as any person they have seen. People in the past can be spoken to as well, and their reactions vary based on who Gage is disguised as. Puzzles often need to be solved by bringing in items from another time period, or by talking to a character to learn more about the mythical societies.

JumpsuitThe Chameleon JumpSuit in the game, designed by Phil Saunders and nearly six-feet tall with green and silver body armor, was donated to the UC San Diego Libraries by Michel Kripalani, Greg Uhler, and Farshid Almassizadeh (all UC San Diego alumni and co-founders of Presto Studios). On January 10, 2009, a reception and exhibition was held at the library in honor of the gift.
Version differencesFrom May 1998 onward a DVD version of The Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time was bundled alongside the first Apple PowerBook laptops (G3 series) to feature a DVD-ROM drive. Unlike the Windows DVD that would be released in September of that same year, the Macintosh version did not feature remastered graphics and video (visual comparison), and instead was identical to the CD-ROM version, albeit on a single disk in order to eliminate disk swapping. This raised the minimum required operating system for the game from OS 7.5 to MacOS 8.1.
A proper DVD version of the game was eventually released on the Macintosh in October of 2009, with the release of the 10th Anniversary Edition, which was OS X compatible and featured the previous upgrades, as well as other additions.
