The Longest Silence

March 5, 2013 in Articles, Contests, Dreamfall Chapters, Interviews, Kickstarter, The Games

It’s been quite a while since my last update, and even more than quite a lot has happened. I’m not going to discuss everything in detail, but let’s start with a list of what happened:

And of course… the new trailer!

Let’s analyze this. Here are my thoughts:

  • At first I thought the voice we were hearing was Zoë‘s, but it resembles the White Dragon‘s voice much more. It’s more logical too, because the voice talks about Zoë in 3rd person.
  • The trailer starts on an image of some kind of vortex, which is later (1:55)  seen as part of the Storytime. This reminded me of the vortex April saw in the Dream Chamber. Could it be that it punched a hole in not only Arcadia and Stark, but also in the Storytime?
  • We can pretty much say with certainty that the vortex is new. It’s not far from the Vagabond‘s tree and the landscape was flat and quite calm in Dreamfall.
  • In the same shot (1:55) we can see some kind of dark creatures floating around the vortex. Is anyone else reminded of The Undreaming?
  • In the Marcuria shots, the tower looks a lot darker than it did in Dreamfall. This is probably connected to the events at the end of the game, just after the Dreamer was released in Stark.
  • Speaking about Stark, it seems like there’s some kind of oppression going on there too. Or is this just an isolated incident?
  • I always love the commercials and signs in Stark. Europolis (1:10): “Licence to Pill”! That’s punny :P
  • And.. oh yeah… Elgwan! Several! :D

  1. Still, Ragnar has said it’s not the White. So we keep speculating. Do we know the “gender” of the Blue, insofar as the Kin have genders? And who or what is the Sky Goddess? All will be revealed…?

  2. I missed Ragnar saying it’s not the White. Interesting…

    The Kin have no real genders. The Blue had a pretty low male voice last time though, so unless it changed a lot for some reason it’s not him/her.

    It could be the third playable character, but I don’t think it’s likely. Yay for speculations! :D

  3. Wait, when did he say it’s not the white? Sounds exactly like her. I just assumed it was her and that was meant to be obvious to everyone.
