So I was reminded that TLJ came out in 1999.  In November it will be 20 years! 

Ah the memories.

 

Any idea if RTG or Funcom will be doing anything for the anniversary?

Wow - that had slipped my mind. 20 years!

 

I'm guessing there may not be much of an observance apart from, like, a Steam sale. But I'd love it if there were!

Pheww... two decades! :D Anniversary stuff would be great, even if no game. Maybe an artbook? Or a blog post with behind-the-scenes info nuggets, some sort of making-of? Would be cool... B)

 

Oh, incidentally, for weddings, 20 would mean the porcelain anniversary (source)... So... some merchandise, a figurine? :lol: Maybe a rubber ducky for the next summer holidays? ;)

I'm thinking the only porcelain will see for this anniversary is a toilet the anniversary goes down...

 ...which we will surely be able to happily prove a worst-case scenario ;) , prevented from happening by us doing some healthy celebration on our own! B) Let's see what we can do in the run-up to November 19th in order to build up some excitement! :D

 

As a first step, let me share the site I just discovered when looking for TLJ's exact release date and which is detailing quite a few tidbits regarding the game's origins and development:

Looking forward to what you guys'n'gals might come up with, truly seminal game, this one, close to my heart...! :)

Twenty years ago I played TLJ and can honestly say that it not only instantly became my fave game but it's also still my all time favorite game. Would be lovely if some kind of acknowledgement would come from Ragnar. However, I think he's gotten really tired of thinking about anything related to the TLJ universe.

 

I'll likely celebrate by playing through it again and I figure that it will be at least the 20th time. :wub:

Oh wow, 20 years. Be still my heart, it's simply been so long! I'm overflowing with love and respect :)

 

I for one reinstalled TLJ just the other day. Life is busier now, so I only got to Chapter 2 so far, but I'll prolly finish playing it by November's end :)

 

I still find it ironic that I used to brag "NOBODY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD PLAYED THIS GAME MORE THAN ME", before I really understood that caps-lock = shouting (lol, netiquette) :P
