Overview

Amerzone: The Explorer's Legacy is a first-person adventure game, developed by Microïds in 1999. The game was designed by Benoît Sokal, who would later become known for the critically acclaimed point and click adventure games Syberia and Syberia 2. Several references to Amerzone are found in these games, and the games take place in the same fictional universe.

Story

The game starts off with the player character (a journalist), meeting an old adventurer named Alexandre Valembois. The adventurer was originally a scientist, who traveled to Amerzone, when he was young, to find a mysterious white bird. These birds are born, live and die in the sky without ever landing. Alexandre betrayed the natives of Amerzone, by stealing a giant egg. Now Alexandre is much older, and he regrets the things he did when he was younger, and wants to fix his mistakes. That's were the main character comes in.
