Kickstarter - Dreamfall Chapters:The Longest Journey

If you like your video games with a touch of literary authority, then you cannot get any better than the critically acclaimed 'Longest Journey Saga'.

Dreamfall Chapters:The Longest Journey (not to be confused with its predecessor Dreamfall:The Longest  Journey) is the third instalment in this point and click adventure game series from new company RedThreadGames; who are hoping that a successful  Kickstarter campaign will enable them to create another fantastic instalment for the game series, which not since Lost have people been left so tantalizingly on edge with the plot holes and cliffhangers.

Dreamfall Chapters has rather big boots to fill and not only that, the developers are making rather bold claims to address some of the problems of point and click adventure titles in general, like the rather horrible or non-existent combat aspects of many titles in the genre.

"A lot of the combat [in Dreamfall] was awful," says Tornquist. "That's gone. I think the focus field was a misfire. It was supposed to supplant the cursor, but it didn't work very well. It also wasn't used much, which I guess was a good thing. In general, I wasn't happy with the controls in Dreamfall. It felt clunky, particularly on the PC. That's something we're fixing. With Chapters, we're doing something a lot more intuitive. The current prototype already feels a lot better. The first time I sat down to play it, I knew we were on the right path." Polygon interview

Hailed as one of the most beloved and complex females created in the medium of video games (Step aside GLaDOS!), and with excellent writing and storytelling, Dreamfall Chapters may very well set new standards for point and click adventure titles for years to come with its promise of improvements and whole new features for the genre.

We aim to recapture the heart and soul of The Longest Journey and to improve on the immersion and game mechanics of Dreamfall in order to bring you a fitting, satisfying and emotional conclusion to the Dreamer Cycle.

  • Experience a deep and complex storyline that continues the epic saga of The Longest Journey and concludes the Dreamer Cycle that began with Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
  • Explore a beautiful, rich, detailed, interactive and living world that mixes a cyberpunk vision of the future with magical fantasy, along with a broken and decaying dreamworld
  • Play as three different characters, all on journeys across worlds, through life, and into their own hearts and souls
  • 3D point-and-click interface and engaging puzzle gameplay designed for fans of adventure games
If you are interested/intrigued or simply salivating at the prospect of another epic instalment of this fantastic series, then head on over to the Kickstarter page and bag yourself a copy of the game already by pledging to support this title.
