Congratulation RTG with the government (NFI) grant for Draugen. They have now received two grants from NFI for the game.

 

Excellent news! Seriously. That's great. With all the Chapters hullabaloo, I'm glad to see Draugen getting supported as well. I think this is really great news for RTG. :) And I'm glad the NFI supports stuff like this.

Posting a translated quote from the NFI about the grant:

 

 

Grants from the Norwegian Film Institute

Developing games
27/10/2014:
1,000,000 kroner

Consultant's assessment
An exciting and beautiful adventure game set in a national romantic setting on the northwestern country. The game received funding for the first phase in 2013, and has so far delivered a very compelling development material. This is a game we are really looking forward to playing, and that we strongly believe will get much attention outside Norway when it launches.


Developing games
28/10/2013:
850,000 kroner

 

It is good to see that this game is also progressing :)

I highly doubt they are still working on Draugen (since they gave us no news since last year ...). Despite their announcement we didn't see it appearing on Kickstarter (or somewhere else).

If they really decided to cancel this amazing project it would make me cry because I was (and am) so excited to play it  :unsure:

 

Someone of the RTG staff has to confirm us that they are still developing Draugen! Please!

 

Additionally I would like to share with you this video showing someone playing an early version of Draugen:

They are still developing Draugen. They're just not hyping it much since they're in the middle of Chapters stuff. They also may not be taking it to Kickstarter. So there's that. 

 

But, I mean...Ragnar literally just mentioned something about the voice acting in the game in March and it pops up on his Twitter / in interviews from time to time as well. So yeah. I wouldn't worry about it being cancelled. But I wouldn't expect much major news about it until either after Chapters is done or it's at least closer to being finished.

Draugen is most definitely still in production, and it's most definitely our next game after Dreamfall Chapters.

 

The thing is, we know our players are very keen on us getting new Dreamfall episodes out in a timely manner, and focusing on that rather than the next thing — after all, our players have already paid for those episodes. By taking the money up front, we owe our players that, and so we agree completely: Dreamfall is our key focus. That doesn't mean we can't (and won't) work on other things, but it's probably best to stay a bit quiet about that until we're very close to the final episode.

 

In other words: don't expect to hear too much about Draugen until this autumn. But it's coming and it's going to be glorious. We're all incredibly excited about it, and it's nice to have something completely different to look forward to.

Looking forward to giving you my money for Draugen!   :)

In some ways, the genre appeals to me more than DFC!  (ducks)

It looks like the 2016 release window has been confirmed in the tiny bit of info that has been added to the Draugen Facebook page:

 

 

 

Did you know that Draugen is visually inspired by the Norwegian romantic nationalism movement of the mid 19th Century? Our game will embrace this nostalgic aesthetic and simultaneously expose its dark side. Behind every beautiful facade there are secrets waiting to be exposed.

 

Draugen — a psychological horror game set in 1920s Norway — is the second title from Red Thread Games, creators of Dreamfall Chapters. Draugen arrives on PC/Mac and consoles in 2016.

 

('Romsdalshorn i Rauma (1865)' by Norwegian artist Johan Fredrik Eckersberg.)

I'm going to try linking to the two Facebook posts. Hopefully it works.

Facebook links are always weird. If those don't work for people, I'll see if we can copy and paste with the images and/or grab screen shots.
