Kickstarter project in full swing.
Today, the long-anticipated follow-up to 'The Longest Journey' and 'Dreamfall: The Longest Journey' made its way to audiences. Red Thread Games took to Kickstarter to get the project off the ground, and now Book One, the first part of a five part episodic story, is available to play. From Ragnar Tørnquist, founder and producer at Red Thread Games, "When Kickstarting a game, you want to ensure you’re delivering everything and more for the fans that have backed it. We wouldn’t be where we are now without our community and it’s because of them that we’ve been able to continue creating the game and story that we’ve dreamed of delivering all of these years.”
'Dreamfall Chapters,' like its popular predecessors, is a story-driven adventure game. "Inspired by the events of the previous Dreamfall games, the plot follows three characters on their journeys across two worlds — one a cyberpunk vision of the future, the other a magical fantasy world — as their stories and destinies intertwine. Book One, entitled 'Reborn,' will feature a prologue, chapters one and two and an interlude. In game, players will explore fantastic locations and mature themes through the eyes of familiar faces, determining the course of their journeys through their choices and actions, and living with the surprising and sometimes devastating consequences. Every decision made within the game will have a significant impact on the way the story plays out. The game’s innovative social system gives players the option to see what decisions their friends made, before they make and share their own."
The entire five-part game is priced at $29.99 and is available to purchase on GOG, the Humble Store, and Steam for PC and Mac as well as on Linux.
