The successful Kickstarter of Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is heading into its final two days. With 46 hours to go as of this writing, Dreamfall Chapters has already far exceeded its initial Kickstarter goal of $850,000 with a more than $1.3 million in pledges.
In a new Kickstarter update, Red Thread founder Ragnar Tørnquist and Lead Designer Martin Bruusgaard revealed more about some of the content players will be able to experience in Dreamfall Chapters. The duo revealed some non-linear areas where players can slow down and explore to discover hidden secrets, chat with characters, and immerse themselves in the setting. Players can then move forward with the story at their own pace.
The video also shows off some new prototype gameplay, which is still a work in progress and subject to change. Lastly, as an added bonus, writer Dave Scheve revealed the second playable character for Dreamfall Chapters.
There are a few spoilers for Dreamfall: The Longest Journey in the video, so if you are playing or planning to play it before Dreamfall Chapters, you may want to skip the part of the video between 6:36 and 6:56 as the new character's backstory is specifically related to that game. Give it a look below for a look at the latest Dreamfall Chapters content.
New video released, second playable character revealed, as Kickstarter campaign passes $1,3 million pledged, with 60 hours left on clock
Red Thread Games has just released the latest video update for their successful crowd-funding campaign, which concludes this coming Sunday.
The video shows off brand new in-game footage from Dreamfall Chapters, and reveals the game's second playable character.
Dreamfall Chapters is the long-awaited adventure sequel to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, and follows three characters on their journeys through two parallel worlds: one a magical fantasy realm, the other a dark cyberpunk future.
Last week, the first full trailer for the game was released. And a few days ago, Red Thread Games announced plans for iOS and Android tablet versions of Dreamfall Chapters, if the $1,75 million stretch goal is reached.
There is still time to pledge via Kickstarter and PayPal. Amongst the rewards offered to pledgers are limited edition boxes, early access, paper and cloth maps, a graphic novel, USB key, and lots of other exclusive goodies.
The Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter ends this Sunday, March 10th, at 1200 GMT.
Dreamfall Chapters was also recently submitted to Steam Greenlight, where users can vote for the game to get a Steam release.
The game is scheduled for release on PC, Mac and Linux in November 2014.
