Dreamfall caught me Kickstarting
Kickstarter seems to have become the Dr Frankenstein of ancient game franchises, as we keep seeing old favorites being brought back to life. Though I have been trying to keep away, the promise of a new Dreamfall game was too tempting to resist. Take my money!
From the Dreamfall Chapters: The longest Journey Kickstarter page about the Dreamfall series thus far:
The Longest Journey is a point-and-click adventure game that was released in 1999 (Europe) and 2000 (North America). The story of April Ryan, an unlikely heroine who goes on a very long journey to save the Balance between the twin worlds of Stark and Arcadia, the game received amazing reviews and won multiple awards.
TLJ was followed in 2006 by Dreamfall: The Longest Journey on PC and Xbox. Continuing the story of April Ryan, and beginning the story of Zoë Castillo, the follow-up also received glowing reviews and won several game of the year awards, including awards for best story, best adventure game, best music and best voice acting.
These were two excellent story based adventure games. Clearly finding funding for a sequel has been challenging, as its been almost ten years since the release of Dreamfall. Thankfully crowd funding can make it happen!
Maybe I will go play the first two games again, as a refresher. Wonder how well they hold up.
