The Evolution of Zoë Castillo

March 9, 2013 in Dreamfall Chapters, Media, Red Thread Games, The Games, Video

A lot of people have been saying that the Zoë model in the previous video’s and screenshots looks too different from how they remember the leading lady from Dreamfall. The team at Red Thread Games, especially art director Christer Sveen, hasn’t been ignoring these comments.

A video was just posted in which Christer shows the process of making Chapters Zoë look more like her original self. We’re still being told to keep in mind they’ll be tweaking the models more during the development of the game, but I have to say these changes already help quite a lot. Go and have a look for yourself!

Apostles, wallpapers and covers

In their most recent Kickstarter update, Red Thread also talked a little bit more about the recently announced second playable character Kian.

Kian’s role in Dreamfall Chapters will be significantly larger than it was in the previous game, and his part in the saga will soon become clear.
Red Thread Games

Also, they posted links to a new wallpaper called ‘Storytime’, gallery of Facebook and Google covers and – in case you missed it – the ‘Loremaster’ wallpaper. Get ‘em while they’re fresh and juicy!

A very big congratulations to the people at Red Thread Games for achieving the ONE MILLION DOLLAR mark on Kickstarter! Look at those happy people! The Longer Journey stretch goal has been achieved! To remind you what exactly that means:

At one million dollars, we expand the journey. We will add new characters, including Abnaxus of the Venar, and new locations, both in Stark and Arcadia. We add more exploration, more depth, more lore. More to see and more to do. Think of this as the extended edition of Dreamfall Chapters. We don’t alter the story or flow, but we open things up and allow players to delve deeper into the game world.
Red Thread Games

Welcome to Europolis

February 22, 2013 in Concept Art, Dreamfall Chapters, Kickstarter, Media, Video

Red Thread Games released their biggest update as of yet: a video with in-game footage of the city-state Europolis, the dark heart of Europe. Read the entire update here, but go to YouTube for a higher resolution video. And don’t forget to Like and Favorite the video of course. We’ll want it to be noticed as much as possible :)

Click on the image below for a larger version of it.

Dreams of Europolis

Europolis may be called ‘the dark heard of Europe’, but there are lights aplenty. They mostly are bluish in color, but lights they remain! Take for example that ‘Sexperience!’ sign. It really brightens up the place!

Some of you might recognize the name on the left of the ’1001 DREAMS’ sign from the previous games: Seshadri Industries. It seems these manufacturers of the oh-so-helpful FACT machine are in the Dream business now.

But not only Seshadri Industries are selling Dreams. At 1:13 in the video, Bingo! (sole winner of the Soda Wars of 2159) sneaks in a short text commercial for their ‘Bingo! Dreams’ sale. Remember the good ol’ days, when they were just all about Classic Cola, Lemon, Lime, Lemon-Lime, Strawberry, Strawberry-Lime, Strawberry-Cola, and Cherry-Cola? I guess the Dream market has become quite an attractive one since the release of the Dreamer in 2219.

Stark: A Journey Back

It feels good to see this side of Stark again. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to see some happier places like Casablanca too, but there’s a charm about these dark and dirty cities too. Looking at the concept art and the footage really takes me back to the streets of Newport. And those are some good memories…


Mira & Wit

And lastly, let’s mention the two characters that appear on the screen while Art Director Christer Sveen says the words ‘seedy’ and ‘scumbag characters’: Mira and Wit.Their motto is “Your shady business, is our shady business”. What do you people think? Would we want to meet these characters or stay far, far away from them? Leave a comment below.

TwitchTV broadcast and new Wonkers USB tier

February 21, 2013 in Dreamfall, Dreamfall Chapters, Kickstarter, Media, Red Thread Games, The Games, Video

In today’s Mini-update, Red Thread Games announced a new pledging tier for the Kickstarter campaign. The tier is set at $200 and will give you all the digital downloadable goodies from the $150 Digital Dreamer Edition on one very cute Wonkers USB stick! For more details, read the update here.

TwitchTV LIVE broadcast on Friday

As was announced earlier, Ragnar Tørnquist, Dag Scheve and Martin Bruusgard will do a live playthrough of Dreamfall this Friday.

The live broadcast begins this Friday at 1800 CET / 1700 GMT / 12PM EST / 9AM PST and will continue until either a) we’ve completed Dreamfall, or b) everyone’s asleep or passed out from exhaustion. The devs are prepared to go the distance, so make sure you have enough coffee, cola, snacks and comfy chairs!
Red Thread Games

The whole thing will be recorded, so you can watch what you missed when ever you want. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the developers during the live broadcast though, so be sure to join in on the fun!

Ragnar Tørnquist interviewed on NRK

February 20, 2013 in Dreamfall Chapters, Interviews, Kickstarter, Media, Video

The beloved Dreamfall Chapters director Ragnar Tørnquist appeared on Norwegian television yesterday to talk about the Kickstarter. The broadcast is viewable online right here. Ragnar’s interview starts at about 10:00 and takes 4,5 minutes. There’s no real news in there, but it’s nice to see how the Kickstarter is being marketed to people who might not even know about Kickstarter.

It’s all in Norwegian of course, so for all you people who don’t speak the language, user toremygg was kind enough to write a shortened translation:

The Library and the PayPal

February 18, 2013 in Dreamfall, Dreamfall Chapters, Kickstarter, Media, Video

With a little over $25,000 to go until the Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter reaches its second stretch goal, the people at Red Thread Games aren’t sitting still. They bestowed another Kickstarter update upon us and announced that they’ll now accept pledges via PayPal.

Pledging via PayPal

Can’t pay through Kickstarter, but still want to contribute and get some nice rewards? Now you have the option to use PayPal! Visit the Dreamfall Chapters page on the Red Thread Games website to look at the different tiers and pay via PayPal. Everything pledge via PayPal will count towards the stretch goals:

PayPal will count towards stretch goals! We will provide regular updates on progress!
Red Thread Games

The PayPal page also includes an embedded YouTube video. It’s an HD version of the Kickstarter video, and it has a spoiler warning at the beginning. What would maybe help is to click here and watch it, like it and maybe favorite it so it’ll get noticed on YouTube. Spread the word, people! :)

The Great Library of Marcuria

The 11th Kickstarter update also contains more details about the Loremaster stretch goal, along with this cute drawing of a certain Bird recklessly disrespecting an ancient tome. Click here or on the Bird to go to the update page and find out more about what happened to the Great Library of Marcuria after the end of The Longest Journey.

Live Dreamfall playthrough on

And lastly, a new video (also available on YouTube!) was included in the update, in which Ragnar Tørnquist, Martin Bruusgaard and Dag Scheve talk about introducing new players to the universe of The Longest Journey and Dreamfall.

At the end, they announced that they’re going to do a live playthrough of Dreamfall this Friday. I love director’s commentaries on DVD’s, and I suspect this will have some similar qualities, so this is something I’m looking forward to. More details will follow soon!

February 16, 2013 in Dreamfall Chapters, Kickstarter, Media, Red Thread Games, The Games, Video

That’s it! There’s no turning back now. Dreamfall Chapters will now definitely be made. Just a few minutes ago the Kickstarter reached its initial goal of $850,00 with still 21 days to go. Red Thread Games posted a thank you video, featuring Dag Scheve, Ragnar Tørnquist and Martin Bruusgard, which you can view here.

Congratulations to all the fans, and most of all the wonderful people at Red Thread Games! And here’s to a wonderful continuation of the Kickstarter (see the image below). Let’s make a sprint to that first million, everyone! :)

Prototype video and Watilla goodness!

February 15, 2013 in Dreamfall Chapters, Media, The Games, Video

Step right up and get your early prototype video right here!

Keep in mind that this is still very early prototype footage, and as such does not reflect the final quality of the art, animations, frame-rate or UI. Zoë is a placeholder model still dressed in her old Dreamfall clothes, and the geography, trees, buildings and assets are also temporary, and will change a lot in the months ahead.

(Riverwood is, after all, a magical, fairy-tale forest, and right now it’s not looking particularly magical or fairy-taley, but this will change.)
Red Thread Games

Prototype video

In the video, we get to see how the user interface will work. It’ll be a real hybrid between ’3rd person control’ and ‘point and click’. It looks very much like what I was expecting, to be honest. And that’s a very good thing. I think this will really let the player control their character much more intuitively than in Dreamfall.

To give us an even better look, a high resolution version of the video was uploaded to YouTube. Like and favorite the video to put some attention on it!

What’s that Wonkers got his hands on now?

Since my last post, the Kickstarter reached its 90% goal faster than I expected. Ragnar Tørnquist had promised to announce the stretch goals once this goal had been reached. Plans have changed slightly though. In order to spread out the updates and have enough for the remaining 23 days of the Kickstarter, the people at Red Thread Games have decided to postpone announcing the stretch goals for about half a day. Ragnar was kind enough to post a little teaser on his twitter though:

Seems like good news for Linux, Apple and Watilla users alike!

New Dreamfall Chapters video and screenshots

February 14, 2013 in Dreamfall Chapters, Kickstarter, Media, The Games, Video

The day isn’t over yet (at least here in Europe), but it doesn’t look like we’re going to make the 90% ($765,000) mark today. As Ragnar Tørnquist stated yesterday, Red Thread Games is going to announce the stretch goals for the Kickstarter once 90% of the end goal has been pledged. It’s a good thing there’s always tomorrow!

Update #6

The Kickstarter also hasn’t seen a new update yet today. It’s well under way though. Ragnar tweeted about a new Dreamfall Chapters video update, in which Martin Bruusgard and Quintin Pan will present a first look at the Dreamfall Chapters prototype.

Looking forward to releasing our very first #DreamfallChapters gameplay footage tonight! Early days and prototype only but still awesome :-)
Ragnar Tørnquist

This early prototype video will give you an idea of the direction we’re going in with the user interface.
Ragnar Tørnquist

A few minutes ago, Ragnar tweeted that the video should be ready for upload in a couple of hours. So keep hitting that refresh button, everyone!

More Screenshots

Getting tired of repeatedly hitting that refresh button already? You might find some distraction in looking at these two new exclusive screenshots on Eurogamer.
