Dreamfall Chapters: A Romance

March 11, 2013 in Articles, Dreamfall Chapters, Kickstarter, The Games, Thirteen Chapters articles

February 8th, 2013 – The Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter campaign launches. And boy, does it get a lot of attention. People have had their eyes on the sequel to Dreamfall for quite some time now. Especially since its official announcement on November 1st.

On the first day of the Kickstarter, the attraction is clearly present. The fans don’t beat around the bush. We pledge around $350,000 (more than a third of the original goal of $850,000). Oh yes, there’s definitely chemistry present…

Along with the launch of the Kickstarter page comes the Kickstarter video. It begins its smooth seduction by remembering old memories; playing familiar music and whispering things to us like “señorita” and “you’re unlike anyone I’ve ever met”. Then it moves on to a vision of a gorgeous and familiar face looking up at a sky full of birds. The video makes us feel safe an comfortable. And we’re enjoying it immensely.

New music starts playing. It sounds fresh and hopeful. It makes promises without even uttering a word. And we’re loving it…

Great promises continue to be made throughout the video. We hear everything we want to hear. We’ll revisit old places and experience new ones along the way, as we travel the worlds together. The team at Red Thread Games is extremely excited about this prospect. And so are we. By The Balance, are we excited. We all really want to make this “more than just a beautiful dream”…

The Longest Journey OST

I want to talk a little about The Longest Journey‘s original soundtrack (OST). One of the most important things that hooked me on the game, even from the first time I saw the trailer, was the music (composed by Bjørn Arve Lagim).

Places of The Longest Journey

November 18, 2012 in Articles, Screenshots, The Longest Journey, Thirteen Chapters articles

Maybe with the exception of most Wii games and those like it, playing computer games isn’t really a physically challenging activity. You’re mainly just sitting on a chair or couch, pushing buttons and moving a mouse with your hand or some analog sticks with your thumbs.

But the interesting thing is: even while remaining at one spot, you’re exploring a lot of different (and hopefully interesting) places. The Longest Journey was one of those games that gave me that great feeling of exploration. It gave me both places of science, and those of magic to travel to and discover.

For the few of you who haven’t yet played The Longest Journey: spoilers ahead!
