Recently, developer Red Thread Games have started raising funds via Kickstarter for another entry in the beloved The Longest Journey series of adventure games. However, if you need proof of their hard work and commitment before tossing a few coins their way, worry not, because today, they released a video showcasing prototype footage of the game in action.

Designer Ragnar Tørnquist, who worked on the previous two games in the series, introduces and narrates the video, seen below. The project is titled Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey and is to be a sequel to the previous title game in the series, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, which concluded with an abrupt cliffhanger ending that had fans shaking to know what happened next. Dreamfall Chapters continues the story of Zoe Castillo and her adventures in the worlds of the technological Stark and the fantastical Arcadia, though Chapters will introduce new gameplay mechanics, characters and environments.

Stay tuned for more news updates on this project here at OnlySP. You can visit the Kickstarter page here. At the time of writing, the fundraising goal has almost been met, sitting just above $817,000.

  1. I hated ‘Dreamfall’. All the magic ‘The Longest Journey’ managed to create was lost in favor of new mechanics and fancy visuals. I don’t even remember the plot, that’s how dead inside it left me.

    To ruin such a legacy… I still haven’t forgiven them. I’d rather play the first game again than a new one, if it will be as lacking in passion and purity as ‘Dreamfall’. And no, I’m not a nostalgia freak. If anything, I am not into retro gaming.

    What I wouldn’t give to have that magic back. I don’t feel I can trust them again so I’ll wait and see when it’s out.

    1. Ouch… that bad, huh?

      While we’re at it, would you recommend the original The Longest Journey to a newcomer, and has it held up? I’ve been meaning to play it for the longest time (hah! get it?), and it certainly wouldn’t hurt to have the opinion of a diehard fan. :D

      1. Recommend it? If ‘The Longest Journey’ were a man, I’d marry him. Almost 15 years later and I still have tears running down my cheek when I hear the soundtrack.

        It’s one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had as a gamer and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good story and needs a little magic in their lives. It’s stunning. Breathtaking. Absolutely charming and if you’re anything like me, you’ll cry like a little girl every time you remember it. Happy tears, though.

        I’ve lost my copy (only have the case). Need to find and play again. For the 4th or so time.

        1. Wow. Sounds like quite the experience. I’m definitley going to play it now. :D

          The game’s available on GOG.com, so if you don’t mind not having a physical version, that might be the place to go (it’s also on Steam, I believe).

          1. The official site has it too, yes. Unfortunately, I’m at a point in life when even 10 dollars is too much (food for a week), so I can’t right now. Maybe after I graduate and have a job, I can find it again. I wish they’ll one day make a huge edition with all 3! I would LOVE to have a physical copy and swag from TLJ!

            Thank you very much for the link though. ^_^

  2. While the PC UI in Dreamfall was truly one of the worst things I have ever experienced in gaming, the game was certainly not that bad. The ending was a bit abrupt and, well, poor, but the game was engaging up to that point. Truthfully, I do not really love any combat in adventure games. It’s not what I am there for, but this is a common problem faced by PC RPG players, Dreamfall was most definitely a console first game, and some mechanics were placed there to try and grab a few, I don’t know, Final Fantasy players or some shit. Despite that it has a pretty strong narrative.

    My suggestion, don’t let Orion colour your view of Dreamfall overly much, but avoid the disaster UI by watching the game played on Youtube.

    1. I don’t think any gamer would let any one person’s opinion ruin anything, but I do agree there. A lot of people loved ‘Dreamfall’ and just because I didn’t get from it the things that TLJ gave me and made me love it doesn’t mean it would be the same for everybody.
