The Longest JourneyEdit
A framed Picture of April, Emma and Charlie at Florence Park, taken by Emma's friend Marcus. April keeps it on her bedside table. Although she can pick up the photograph and take it with her, it is never used in any in-game puzzles - although it originally formed part of a puzzle which was removed. According to Ragnar:
"Yup, the photo indeed serves no discernable purpose in the game, although once upon a time, it did. I won't go into it, but it was part of a highly convoluted -- and quite awful -- puzzle, involving, I seem to recall (quite badly), a beaver, two mittens, and a urine sample. But then again...I could be wrong.
"The photo stuck, however. As such things tend to do."
Obtained from April's bedroom in the Border House.
The picture returns in Dreamfall. Zoe Castillo retrieves it from inside the wardrobe in April's old room, identifying it as an "old videograph". When she recognises Charlie, whom she has just met at the Fringe, she shows it to him and he points out April to her.
The presence of the picture is a bit confusing. Clearly, in this continuity, April left the picture on her bedside table in The Longest Journey, but why it would still be in her closet after ten years, especially as Marcus has now moved into her old room, is a good question. Equally, given the fact that adventure gamers pick up everything that isn't nailed down, most people coming to Dreamfall from TLJ would have taken the picture. Given that it remained in April's inventory, and she never returned to Stark, it would still have been in April's possession.
Close examination of the picture also reveals several significant differences with the picture from TLJ. In this picture, April is wearing an outfit she originally wore for the TLJ box art, still visible on the official website. She is also now situated in the middle, with Emma taking her place on the left. Charlie keeps his place on the right, but has now added a jacket. As well as all of this, the setting has changed: Florence Park seems to have become the lounge at the Fringe Cafe.
Obtained from April's old wardrobe.
