Throwback Thursday Recommendation

Every Thursday, we share the earnest reasons that make a classic game so dear to us!

Recommended by Asia, Comms Team: I'd my first encounter with April Ryan when I was a teenager. Multidimensional travel was my thing then, and the twin worlds of Arcadia and Stark reminded me in many ways of The Neverending Story, which I loved as a kid. TLJ captivates you with its characters that still feel like flesh and blood after so many years, the compelling story that you'll rediscover with each playthrough, and the music that makes this game truly iconic.
