Dreamfall Chapters Closed, The Longest Journey Ended

This is the end, my only cyberfriend, the end. Episode 5 of adventure game Dreamfall Chapters [official site] launched last night and, unless something strange and wonderful happens, that will likely be the end of the whole thing. It's the end of Dreamfall and it's the end of its overarching series The Longest Journey.

Dreamfall Chapters Ending Longest Journey Next Week

The fifth and final episode of Dreamfall Chapters [official site] will arrive next week, developers Red Thread Games have announced. It's the end of Dreamfall and likely the end of The Longest Journey too, the end of it all.

Nip/Tuck: Dreamfall Chapters Redesigns Main Characters

The art of retcon is difficult to master but in the spirit of Happy Days' Chuck Cunningham, who disappeared up the stairs in Episode 1 and was never seen again, the developers of Dreamfall Chapters [official site] have redesigned the game's main characters for Book Three: Realms. The character design for Kian and Zoe has evolved over the past few installments in the series, although from…

Feature: The Balance Is Shifting

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.

Feature: The beginning of the end

Dreamfall Chapters – Book One review

When you spend so long hoping for the continuation and conclusion of a story that was part of your earlier life, it's a bittersweet relief to hear that the waiting is finally over. Parting is such sweet sorrow and all that, but it's beneficial to have some closure. The Longest Journey began a decade and a half ago and Dreamfall Chapters marks the end of…

The Book Starts Here: Dreamfall Chapters

Dreamfall Chapters always sounded like an episodic game thanks to the second word in the title right there. 'Chapters' are separated from one another in a way that seems more distinct than pages or paragraphs. The use of 'Chapters' was, as I understand it, in keeping with an idea of progression and storytelling rather than separation though. Whatever the semantics might be, Dreamfall Chapters will…

Reborn: Dreamfall Chapters Split Into Five Episodes

Fun fact: when it was first conceived, Dreamfall Chapters was going to be an episodic series. Thus, the name Dreamfall Chapters. Before long, however, man of so many yarns that cats are magnetically drawn to his face, Ragnar Tornquist, decided the plot necessitated "one big meaty game with a fully story and a full conclusion." Apparently, though, the game outgrew that model too, so now…

Feature: Nordic nightmares

First Look: Investigating The Horror Of Draugen

Ragnar Tørnquist describes Draugen as the game at the heart of Red Thread Studios. That’s something of a surprise, considering that a script and concept for Dreamfall Chapters have existed in his mind (and on various hard drives) for more than a decade now. The Nordic horror/mystery will be his new team’s second release and, as he explained to me during a recent visit to…

Feature: Journey's End

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…

Dreamfall Dev Debuts ‘Gone Home Meets Amnesia’ Draugen

It's easy to forget that Red Thread Games is working on anything other than Dreamfall Chapters because, well, Dreamfall Chapters. But last year, the viking-est man in game development, Ragnar Tornquist, and his band of merry yarn-spinners announced first-person survival horror adventure Draugen, which does not sound much like Dreamfall at all. Tornquist has instead opted to plant its ragged bones between Gone Home and…

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…

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.…

Rezzed: Ragnar Shows Off Dreamfall Chapters

If you didn't make it to Rezzed this weekend just gone, you missed some cracking talks about videogames. You also missed some cracking early footage of upcoming videogames, such as Ragnar Tornquist and Red Thread's successfully Kickstarterered Longest Journey sequel Dreamfall Chapters. Here's Ragnar and chums in The Purple Room, fielding questions and showing off cyberpunk future-Prague, the UI and controls and how some of…

Dreamfall KS Wraps, Barely Misses Bonus Side-Game

Was there really ever any doubt that a Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter would fly past the finish line on beams of glorious rainbow sun and cyberlightning? Perhaps in some dismal, alternate future of implausibly constant sadness, but not in this one. So at this stage, it's a matter of just how rabidly fans frothed dollars into Ragnar Tørnquist's clinking cup, and - as a result -…
