Rule of thumb in an adventure game, especially this one:
examine every location carefully. If you can pick something
up, do so. You may not need it for hours of gameplay, but
you will need it eventually.
April's diary isn't just there to add depth to the game
always read the latest entry for hints about what you have
to do next.
While you're in Arcadia, don't be surprised if the inventory
item you have to use to make something happen is your pal
Sometimes an inventory item contains another inventory item.
For example, the toy monkey that you'll need to solve the
theater puzzle earlier in the game has a glass eye that you'll
need much later once you're inside the police station.
One of the most difficult puzzles in the game involves
setting up the telephone to wake the sleeping giant.
Make it easier on yourself by going to the big head at
the base of the mountain to learn the symbols associated
with each statue transmitter. Then set up the transmitters
so that the ones with the appropriate symbols are "talking"
and "listening" to each other.
Complete walkthrough for the very good game The Longest Journey.
This is a game I really liked to play and it was really entertaining.
The game has many little things you have to solve and it was these
tiny things I used most of the time to solve. The rest of the puzzles
were not of the hardest I’ve tried and most of them can be solved by
just using logic. The same goes for the dialogue between the characters.
Think logically before giving your answer and you will not answer the
Also, only use this walkthrough if you’re really stuck.
Try to solve the puzzles yourself first, and you will get
so much more out of the game since I’ve only written the
solve for things you HAVE to do, and not all the characters
to talk to or things to explore that makes the game more fun
to play. And remember that no matter what you get into, April
can never die (pretty cool quality if you ask me) and because
of that, the game will never end in a dangerous situation.
The walkthrough can be freely distributed as long as my name
is not removed nor the walkthrough changed without my approval.
Well, that's enough talk, let’s get on with the game. Have fun.
The prologue is simple, not much to do here.
Go to the right, break the branch off the tree and talk to
its "voice" before you grab an eggshell from the nest.
Go further to the right and use the branch and eggshell
with the little stream.
Talk to the "voice" again.

Nag about getting your salary and threaten to quit. (Now that's better.)
Take a look at the poster next to the jukebox and take a ticket from it.
Look closer at the ticket and look at the address on the side.
Take some bread from the table.
Go back to the boardinghouse and look at the machine outside.

back upstairs and ask Zack the same thing.
At the subway, look at the sparks by the railway. April finds
out that it's a key.
Blow up the duck and place it on the pincers and then the string.
[In some versions of the game, there's a bug that screws this
up if you do this in closeup. The smartest thing is to do this
right in the inventory screen, or else the game will show the
pincers without the string. A patch fixes this, and I don’t
know if this is the case with the English version, but you'd
probably better save before you do this anyway.]
Get the key with your "fishing pole."
Take the subway and find the cinema (to the right from the subway
and to the right.)

The bozo gets pissed and says you used magic to trick him. Offer
him your screwdriver in exchange for one of his prizes.
April says she needs some time to think about what to pick. At
this part it’s important to get April to understand exactly what

times as possible).

move the skull to get one of them off the table).
Read the formula book.

Chapter Eight " Reunion

tree, and it will be available).
Go to the ruins (left of the beach) and use the rope on the
little tree and climb down.
Go further down the cave and take the key in the pile of rocks.
Take the rope with you when you leave.
Go inside the cave (the mouth) in the big statue to see the
symbol that belongs to each phone.
Now you’re going to set up the phones so that they will wake up
the giant Q’aman and can be done like this: the trick here is
to set up the phones in a special way so that the mouth on the
phone by the tree hits the ear of the phone on the cliff (right
for the beach, and through the village--take a look at the
suffering crab while you’re there), and from the mouth on the
phone on the cliff to the ear of the one at the ruins. From there
turn the mouth so that it hits the mouth of the statue so that
your voice goes all over the island and wakes up Q'aman.
Use the key to turn the ears and mouths. If you turn it one way,
you will move the mouth and the other way turns the ears. Now
talk into the phone at the tree. This may take a while, but
just try in different angels and you will get it right in the end.
Wake up Q'aman and get him to tell you where he is.

Use the wind mixture with the upwind by the cliffside.
Use the light-as-a-feather mixture with April and jump over the gap.
Go inside the city and talk to the guard by the castle (or something
like that). He wants you to answer some questions about some fables,
so we’re gonna have to collect some. The first one you hear from Seana
(the kid), the other from Neema (by the pots), the third from the old
alterer right outside the city and the last one from the guard by the
gap you jumped over (Isam).
Go back to the guard outside the castle and answer the incredibly
easy questions (if you get these wrong, I just have to congratulate you).

Go back to talk to Burns for the last time.
Go back to Metro Circle and take the elevator.
Go in the tunnel and tell the receptionist that you'd like

Halloway suddenly appears.
Use the talisman on Gordon.
Congratulations. You have completed The Longest Journey and a
very disappointing epilogue follows. (At least I think so).
They could have made that much better. What happened to Emma
and Charlie, and did April and Charlie become "closer" to each
other? Well, at least we see why the old lady knew so much about
us in chapter nine. Just think about it, you’ll figure it out.
