Dreamfall Chapters Book Two – Rebels review

Conspiracies, rebellion, prejudice and resistance. The worlds of Dreamfall [official site] are on the verge of cataclysmic changes and every decision could tip the balance of power. Dreamfall Chapters Book Two continues a fine story but something is lost between the page and the screen.

Hands On: Dreamfall Chapters

Dreamfall Chapters opens with a series of nightmares, wasting no time before informing the player of the high stakes and gravity of its multi-threaded plot. It’s a personal story, of family and sacrifice, but the potential consequences are cosmic. In truth, it’s not a single story at all, it’s a collection of stories within stories and about stories, taking the disparate worlds of The Longest…

The Longest Walkthrough: 30 Minutes Of Dreamfall

I always knew that I'd be playing a new Dreamfall game one day. That's partly because I am a creature of unshakeable optimism but it's also because Ragnar Tørnquist had a cheeky sparkle in his eye when I asked him how long we'd be waiting for a continuation of the story back in the days before Red Thread existed. On the question of Dreamfall, he…

Having A Good Cry

I'm teased for a number of things. Whether it's Kieron's most backhanded, "The Funny One", or Kieron's calling me a bad healer, or Kieron... Wait, I'm teased by Kieron for a number of things. But perhaps the most common is to suggest that a game is likely to make me cry. It's my own fault. I've written quite openly about it in the past. I…
