In 1999, The Longest Journey, a point and click adventure game, was released. It told the story of April Ryan, a young woman who had the ability to travel between her homeworld of Stark, a futuristic cyberpunk realm, and Arcadia, a land of magic and chaos. After receiving extremely positive reviews, it gained a sequel in 2006: Dreamfall, which introduced a new character, Zoë Castillo, a dreamer who had the ability to be in both worlds at once.
Now the long awaited sequel is finally coming, and you can help in its creation.
“Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is a 3D adventure game for Mac, Linux and Windows PC that takes the player on an epic journey across the twin worlds of Stark and Arcadia; from a futuristic cyberpunk vision of our world, to a realm of powerful magic and dangerous beauty.
With Dreamfall Chapters, we will finally continue the darkly magical story that began in the critically acclaimed and award-winning adventures The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.
Independently developed by Red Thread Games, this project brings back the core team behind Dreamfall, including Ragnar Tørnquist, creator of The Longest Journey saga.”
Many fans have been dreaming of getting a sequel, especially since Dreamfall left on a cliffhanger. Red Thread Games have already reached their goal of $850,000, but are planning to make the game even better and more expansive with additional pledges, including new voice overs (including multi-language support), new areas, new stories and new soundtracks.
I for one am looking forward to additional chapters in this amazing series, and if you are too, be sure to check out the Dreamfall Chapters kickstarter thread.
