The Longest Journey

This is a more recent version of TLJ, which runs under Windows XP and fixes several crash issues. The game still uses DirectX 7 interfaces, and DirectDraw.

There is a downloadable demo on the company website that makes for a good testcase (exact same code as the game itself).

Additional Comments

It seems to have come a long way since the first time I tried it, but is still unplayable. Character rendering is the single biggest issue.
