Dreamfall Chapters getting fancified in 'The Final Cut'

Gameplay and graphics tweaks

The final episode of Dreamfall Chapters [official site] may have arrived in June 2016--also tolling the end of The Longest Journey--but developers Red Thread Games aren't done with their adventure game quite yet. They've announced plans to revisit and tweak Chapters with 'The Final Cut', an update bringing extra prettiness and gameplay adjustments to bring the PC version in line with Chapters' upcoming console releases.

Red Thread explained in an update on Kickstarter:

"We're very excited about this opportunity to revisit Chapters one final time. There are several improvements and changes we've wanted to make for years — along with requests and suggestions from our players and community — and we finally have the time and resources to address them.

"So what's new? There are changes to character art and animations, music, sound-effects, shaders, lighting — and gameplay."

Red Thread have prettied up Dreamfall Chapters before, giving it fancier effects and lighting in the switch to a newer version of Unity engine.

The Final Cut isn't all that's on the horizon either. Red Thread are also planning to patch in German voice-overs, and another patch will add in-game Kickstarter rewards like the town crier and Benefactor's Wall. Those are both due to arrive before The Final Cut, which is itself due "close to the release of the console versions" (out March 24th).

Dreamfallers, how do you feel about Chapters now you've had a few months to reflect on it? We never did Wot I Think the full series--only the first two episodes--so go on, do say.
