Tears For Fears: Dreamfall Devs Announce Draugen

This comes as a surprise. Red Thread Games, the Norwegian studio founded last year by Ragnar Tørnquist with the specific purpose of reducing John to a puddle of shuddering emotion, is making a first-person survival horror game called Draugen. The studio has thus far been working solely on Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey, the crowdfunded sequel to John's emotional puberty, since September of last year.…
