Pixel BoostTo celebrate the release of Dreamfall: Chapters, we look back at the 2006 adventure game. In 8K resolution, naturally.
Dreamfall Chapters' first episode is out soon—this Autumn, in fact—giving those of us who have yet to play either The Longest Journey or Dreamfall something of a deadline if we want to dive in at the game's release. To whet our appetites, Red Thread Games have released a new trailer ostensibly announcing Chapters' season pass. Yep, season passes can be annoying, but they make sense in an episodic
As previously announced, Dreamfall Chapters—the crowdfunded sequel to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey—is being split up into five parts. The newly episodic adventure's first episode, Reborn, will arrive this Autumn. In preparation, Red Thread have released a new teaser—one that offers a fresh look at returning characters Zoe and Kian. Of course, if you're a The Longest Journey fan, you'll probably
Dreamfall Chapters news was heralded this morning by the arrival of a talking crow. As an homage to the series' most enduring sidekick, it landed on my monitor, announced that, "Dreamfall Chapters will now be an episodic adventure," and spent the next ten minutes flapping wildly, unable to find an open window. It was still less eventful than the time Ubisoft sent us Far Cry 3 press releases
I've never been one for the "adventure games are dead" argument, but blimey, there sure are a lot of them on the horizon. Thanks to Kickstarter and the gentle milking of nostalgia glands, we're not only getting new adventures from Double Fine and Revolution, but also the creators of The Longest Journey. Red Thread's Dreamfall Chapters is still in pre-alpha stage, meaning backers will have to use
The developers at Red Thread Games have a talent for crafting scummy futuristic places that you really, really want to visit. They did it with both The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, and they're reusing the classic formula again in Dreamfall Chapters. This latest gameplay footage of the Kickstarter-funded sequel shows off a sinister section of Prague.
In the final week of their Kickstarter campaign, Red Thread have released the first proper trailer for Dreamfall Chapters. It (re-)introduces everyone to the twin worlds of Stark and Arcadia, and also attempts to break the record for number of times a narrator says "dream", or some variation thereof, in a three minute period. It stops just short of chanting "dreamy dreaming dreamer dreams dreams."
Red Thread's Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter campaign has done an impressive job stirring up anticipation for the next tale in The Longest Journey's saga, passing the $1 million mark to achieve promised stretch goals for added lore, Mac and Linux support, and solemn-looking monkeys. With more support needed to drum up an additional $1 million in extra funding, Director Ragnar Tørnquist and Writer
More than 14,000 backers have helped the Dreamfall Chapters kickstarter campaign sail past the $850,000 target with 19 days left on the clock. "Now it's OUR time to deliver," Red Thread said in the celebratory Kickstarter update post. "We promise to make the best game we can possibly make, one that lives up to your expectations and the legacy of The Longest Journey saga. A game that we can all be
Dreamfall Chapters' Kickstarter campaign is sailing towards completion, with over $787,000 of its $850,000 goal raised and 22 days still to go. With success all but assured, Red Thread have announced the first stretch goals for the adventure sequel. The team have also released early prototype footage of the game, showing an explorable location and their hybrid UI system.
"Man of Adventure," Ragnar Tørnquist and Red Thread Thread Games need 850,000 of your dollars to complete the Longest Journey saga. A Kickstarter launched earlier today for Dreamfall Chapters, and has already taken $149,476 in pledges. Dreamfall Chapters will be a 3D adventure game that promises a "rich, detailed, interactive and living world that mixes a cyberpunk vision of the future with
Marvellous news for fans of Ragnar Tørnquist's Longest Journey series: there will be more of it! Ragnar teased the announcement on Twitter and it's been officially announced in a press release on the Funcom site. It sounds like it'll remain true to the original games. "#Dreamfall Chapters won’t be an online game," Tørnquist tweets. "It’s going to be a single-player PC/Mac adventure game through
A few weeks ago I got to speak to Ragnar Tørnquist at Funcom's offices in Montreal. He's the developer behind critically acclaimed adventure games The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, and now he's in charge of The Secret World - an real world MMO that's taking everything you thought you knew about the genre and throwing it out the window. It's shaping up to be something rather interesting.
