So let's talk about the new screenshots from Book 2 that were posted here:

http://worthplaying..../19/news/95001/

And which I believe will also be shared in an upcoming Kickstarter update. I don't think the Worthplaying website plays nicely with embedding images, so follow the link to take a look.

(EDIT: Here's the link to the Kickstarter update and here's the link to RTG's imgur gallery, which includes some extra text about each image.)

Okay, so let's talk about all those pretty pictures. My big question -- what's up with the Balance symbol that Abnaxus is wearing? Is it April's talisman, or just a pendant?

Probably just a pendant, but it's hard to compare things between TLJ and Dreamfall:Chapters with all the improved graphics now.

 

I'm more curious about what is the place where Zoe is meeting with Abnaxus (and that other person). She seems to be dressed in the underwear she used when visiting Faith, and there's no background there only blindingly-white light, but if this is again another pocket of the Storytime, it would be quite weird for her to meet Abnaxus there of all people.

Yeah, upon further research, I think I agree. Abnaxus' pendant is fastened in two spots, and April's (from the Prologue) looks like it's fastened in one:

And re: where they're meeting - yeah, it looks sort of like Faith's realm. I wonder if it's a spot where DreamNet bleeds into the Storytime.  

 

Also, what kind of magical creature is Abnaxus hanging out with?  Is that an Oular? (Compare the ears.)

I feel like the her in her underwear thing makes sense. She seems to pass through some pocket of the Storytime to get to Arcadia. Since she's in between there, she's not in her Stark clothes or her Arcadia clothes. Though I am curious to see how that area looks, Post-Faith....and it also seems odd that she's meeting these Arcadians in this inbetween state. Does this have something to do with the worlds bleeding into each other thing...?

 

Really curious about the teased business with Mira...

 

Also, it looks like Red is getting a little handsy with Kian (in his fancy new outfit)...not sure how I feel about this development.

The best thought I've had about this so far is that, at the end of Dreamfall, when Faith "let go," and before Zoe wound up in Storytime, the world went entirely white.  So maybe that's the natural state of the DreamNet/Storytime crossover point?

 

Also, it looks eerily reminiscent of the white room in the Matrix.

That's a thought I can get behind, actually.

 

Also, unrelated, but a couple of these screen shots really deserve ridiculous made-up captions.

Yeah - like the Na'ane/Likho face-off where Kian is leaning in kinda sideways.. "S'up, bros?"

Right? I kind of picture him saying like "This looks like it might be a bad time, but could one of you help me with one of these buckles...?"

xD HAH...YES. :D

 

Kian looks just vaguely lost/unaware/in-the-wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time in basically every screen shot where he's facing the camera. Awkwardly so. ...Which I suppose makes sense. 

 

(Also, theories as to what the hell is going on in the scene where he's similarly framed, but has the full Screed hoodie thing going on and there's the guard and the...grey child...?)

Looks like an Azadi soldier either comforting, or finishing up roughing up, a Dolmari girl?

She doesn't look like a Dolmari, though. Maybe it's just the lighting, but she doesn't look blue enough...and they hair seems too dark.

Interesting theory about the "winter" place being "reset" after dreamfall and maybe abnaxus took faith's place there and he's introducing Zoƫ to "stuff" as she first crosses the divide again after using that dreamer ?

About that, it's really interesting how she arrives to use a dreamert in the first place. As she has no memories of her adventures in the story time, she doesn't remember telling people not to use dreamers anymore. So back in the real world, she got curious enough to try it again because she saw that little girl who DID remember her and that encounter - among other things - woke up her feelings of curiocity and also her motivation to try one ? (oh the irony)

"Beautiful warrior princess"? Well, she certainly has the looks of a warrior.

Yes! But it doesn't mean that she is Saga. But she can be Lady Alvane lol.

Since Dreamfall only contained excursions into Arcadia (I believe that the story of Longest Journey is a story about Arcadia and the story of Dreamfall is about Stark) it's nice to get to see all the creatures and weird races/spiecies that we didn't see in DF.

 

Edit:
Does Kian look kind of like  Connor McCleod in one of the last pictures? He has that aweful McCleod hair, in any case.
