Dreamfall Chapters

“Where are you going Dreamer?” The Dreamfall Chapters trailer is beautiful.

When Ragnar Tornquist stepped down from his role of Creative Director of The Secret World, it was to continue a saga he’d begun a good while back.  Making a deal with Funcom, he started Red Thread Games with a small team and began work on the next chapter of Dreamfall.

Now, after a successful — but not yet over — kickstarter, a Dreamfall Chapters trailer has been released and it’s beautiful. No, I don’t mean just in how it looks…

As a long time fan of RPG’s I love anything that compels me to want to know more about a game’s story and its characters.

Two worlds in balance.

The Dreamfall Chapters trailer shows viewers the two worlds that players will be exploring as the game’s protagonist Zoë Castillo.  The two worlds; Stark — a crumbling dystopian future, and Arcadia — it’s magical counterpart; exist in harmony with one another, even allowing some people to cross the bridge of reality between the two.

There aren’t very many of these people left, but Zoë is one. She dreams her way between the worlds.

5 Days left to pledge on Kickstarter.

While the kickstarter for Dreamfall Chapters has been incredibly successful — raising $1,179,736 of a $850,000 goal — it still have five more days before it is over.  Of course, like many developers seeking funding on Kickstarter, Red Thread went with a base amount and have since added a plethora of stretch goals.

Most of these goals, such as creating Mac and Linux versions, adding new locations and characters, an interactive graphic novel and more have been achieved.  But there are a few goals left.  The first one at $1,250,000 will allow the devs to make German and French versions and include even more voice-overs.  The other goals… Well, they have yet to be revealed.

If you’re on of those people who have been debating pledging, but haven’t committed one way or the other, perhaps the Dreamfall Chapters trailer is enough to help you make up your mind.
