There may not be one yet. Video walkthroughs are all the rage and finding written walkthroughs is getting harder and harder. Since it's an Indie title that's been out roughly a day...I'm not seeing anything. 

 

WorldsReunited did one for Book One, so I assume he'll get to one for Book Two eventually (probably/hopefully?).

 

If you're stuck or having issues, feel free to post for help in the meantime. :) Everyone here's been pretty good about helping out with that stuff.

A walkthrough, written or otherwise, will be a daunting task if the entire choice & consequence mechanic gets in there. And if it doesn't, it won't be complete. :blink:

It does seem like WorldsReunited has started to add Book 2 as well. He's finished the first chapter of Book 2 now - see this thread here :)

 

I suppose if you mostly include all the "how to do puzzle" things, those do not seem to differ that much depending on your choices. But if if includes all the subtle (and not so subtle) differences, then it would be a very daunting task, indeed.

The choices part (not the puzzle/instructions) is what Eveolene is working on (and doing a great job) with the Transcript.

Why would you want or need a written walkthrough?

I'm just curios. There's ample help in the forums, and various playthroughs with different decisions made.

And you can play however you want with whatever decisions you choose how many times you'd like.

 

So why is there a need for a walkthrough?

I for one used a written walkthrough for "instant answers" but in any case, the guy I linked to is thinking of not doing book 3 onwards due to how much his game has deviated already.

Indeed it's part of my point.

I can't see a reason for a written walkthrough especially for a non linear game such as DFC.

And if you're stuck, you can use the search option of the forum and you'll get your answer quickly enough.

Look up a single text with a coherent, sequential walkthrough of plot and puzzles encountered along the way. Or search through a forum. One of these is easier than the other. It's the first one.

I disagree.

Using the search for specific needs is much less tempting and less spoilery.

On the few times I needed help with the game I found what I needed very simply, and at the level of detail that didn't necessarily spoil the puzzle.

the con is that you need internet connection while playing, I agree with that.

But I don't think a game such as DFC can have a coherent linear walkthrough. Not with all different choices you have to make.

I use walkthroughs when I get stuck and only search for the part I need. Using a forum is far more cumbersome.

I prefer uhs-hints.com for my walk through needs. Not sure if DFC is added yet.

 

Edit: DFC isn't added yet. Not sure how to add games there either.

Wow, uhs-hints still exists? I remember using it (once!) back in 2000 when I played none other but The Longest Journey! It was incredibly useful, mostly because it had this "gradual" way of giving you hints, without outright telling you what to do, unless you kept clicking for more direct instructions, which made puzzle-solving still feel rewarding enough!

I truly hate walkthroughs. It is so easy to get lazy and just follow all the instructions. Especially with a work of art like Dreamfall Chapters, you will definitely miss out on all of subtle nuances and story lines.

 

That said, I'm a gaming dunce, and with some games (who am I kidding, MOST games, blush) I have no choice but to seek help. The Longest Journey was certainly one of those. However, both Dreamfall and Chapters are extremely playable even for my (lack of) skill level.

 

For Dreamfall I only needed help once, that was in a troll cave where I kept getting lost and killed. GAH I don't miss that element!

 

In Chapters I only needed help in 1 spot so far... and that was literally because I had failed to notice a clickable hotspot. If I can do it, so can anybody :D

 

Seriously though you do yourself a huge disfavor if you use a walkthrough with Chapters, I don't think it's needed and it definitely would take away from the satisfaction... as others suggested just ask here when you're stuck and people will nudge you in the right direction :)

I love uhs-hints.
Just enough to put you on the right track.
Well, with the exception of the notorious Altar puzzle in the Merum city where I needed the straight out solution, and still do on every playthrough  :blush:

It's cause they screwed up that puzzle, there's an error in it. Two of the crystals follow the opposite logic for one side compared to two of the other crystals.

I remember the puzzle, I don't remember any such error.

Thank you so much! I finally was able to complete The Mole task because of this walkthrough  :)
