It is well known that I am a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series of games and a fan of The Sims 2. What isn’t as well known is my absolute adoration of The Longest Journey and Dreamfall. Because of this adoration, I feel like a bit of a dope that I wasn’t aware of the successful Kickstarter launched to fund Dreamfall Chapters, the third and final installment in the series. Actually, I’m glad I wasn’t aware, because I would have seriously considered dropping a stack to have an NPC designed to look like me. Those are some compelling Kickstarter rewards!
The crew at Red Thread is immensely talented and every red cent that the group has amassed is certainly deserved. For fun, I’ve added a short interview that developer Ragnar Tørnquist kindly agreed to back during the launch of The Longest Journey. It’s an interesting look back at a time when the industry wasn’t as open to protagonists and genres that defied a narrowly defined norm. You’ll find the Q & A after the jump!
