On top of hearing that a new Star Wars movie is on the way, I woke up this morning to find out that Funcom’s finally getting around to continuing my favorite adventure series:
Funcom is excited to announce that ‘Dreamfall Chapters’, the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning adventure title ‘Dreamfall: The Longest Journey’, has gone into pre-production at Red Thread Games, a new studio founded by Ragnar Tørnquist, creator of ‘The Longest Journey’ saga.
Red Thread Games has licensed the rights to ‘The Longest Journey’ universe from Funcom, and Mr. Tørnquist will spearhead development of ‘Dreamfall Chapters’, while continuing in an advisory role as Creative Director on Funcom’s recently launched modern-day massively multiplayer online game ‘The Secret World’.
While Dreamfall had a hard time reaching up to the bar that The Longest Journey set, it was a captivating game in its own right. The problem is that it basically ended with several cliffhangers and loose threads, all of which we’ve been waiting to see resolved for some time now. Great to hear that Tornquist has a path to continuing the story!
