The long-awaited sequel to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey was recently announced. The series ended on a major cliffhanger, and fans have been eagerly waiting for news of a sequel since 2006. The Longest Journey is widely-regarded as one of the best adventure games ever made, and both games won numerous accolades. The games are also noted for having female protagonists, with only short sequences in Dreamfall where the player controls a male character.
Dreamfall Chapters, as the name suggests, will be an episodic game. Kickstarter will be used to fund the game, and The Norwegian Film Institute has provided $175,000 toward pre-production. In a press release, creator Ragnar Tørnquist said, “I’m very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the The Longest Journey saga. Ever since we ended Dreamfall on a nail-biting cliffhanger, players have been rightfully demanding a sequel, and my deal with Funcom will finally make that possible. I’m extremely grateful to Funcom for this unique and exciting opportunity, and I can’t wait to dive back into the universe I helped create more than a decade ago, and continue the story players have been waiting for these past six years.” Tørnquist’s company, Red Thread Games, will be developing the game.
