There are two things we need to do first:

 

Deliver on our Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter promises by shipping T-shirts and fulfilling as many of the backer rewards as possible — this is our FIRST priority. We don't feel we can ask our fans for a single dollar/pound/euro/krone until we've proven that we're capable of delivering on our promises. Delays are excusable, up to a point, and we've reached that point.

 

Secondly, we need to design and produce the best campaign we possibly can — one that explains what Draugen is all about, lives up to the promise of the setting, the story and the design, stirs emotions (the feels!) and gives people a real incentive and reason to put their money down. We're not just going to throw it out there: we're going to work hard to deliver, and if we're going to succeed then, by god, we're going to EARN it.

 

So, y'know, soon?

No worries, just take your time. I'm still broke after The chapters pledge haha...

I've always wanted to check out Dear Esther, Outlast, and Amnesia but I could never find the time for them. Draugen, however, seems different and I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Horror games that I like include Doom 3, the F.E.A.R. series, Left 4 Dead, Half-Life 2, Bioshock, the Resident Evil series, and, even though I never worked the nerve to play it, Silent Hill (some day though).

Well, outlast has the most action out of the one you cited...

Dear Esther is an exploration game.

 

The games from frictionnal games (All of them, penumbra and Amnesia and their next game title Soma) are real pure hooror games with a concentration on atmosphere and story. You shouldn't play them if you prefer action horror.

Well, I'm borrowing Amnesia from a buddy and I'm going to play it to test out my feelings for games like Draugen. It looks exciting. I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Try to find the outlast game not too expensive, it's the close in terms of action horror between all the game talk earlier,

 

If you want real horror, then you will have it in amnesia.

Or P.T. if you own a ps4. Granted P.T. is only a teaser/riddle to see the trailer for the new upcoming Silent Hill game. Total horror and mindfuck!

Like most horror games, I tend to always put them next to Silent Hill 2, because I firmly believe there won't be anything that can ever truly match what that one accomplished. I think it's exciting that Ragnar & the Dreamfall team is working on a horror game with presumably a more engaging story than that of Amnesia or games like it.

 

Looking forward to hearing more from it in the nearest future.

I don't think we will hear that much before DFC is finished but yeah, I agree!

Well, Draugen seems to be mainly influence by Frictionnal Games (Amnesia and penumbra series), and that is maybe the best about it. It will be all for the story and atmosphere. So really different from FEAR or Doom games. While being more similar to Silent Hill series that is itself more about story and atmosphere.

 

If you can play Silent hill shattered memories, it's my best for now in the series. Word of advice, it's quite emotionnal and heartbreaking.

I seem to remember Ragnar having mentioned Gone Home as an inspiration as well, although that's not a scary game.

 

I was scared playing Gone Home

Btw guys after reading this thread I finally decided it was time I got round to trying "The Stanley Parable". Really love it, and the ongoing fact that these kind of experiences exist. And to me they are most certainly games.

I can't imagine their existence in other media (aside from perhaps Live Theatre)

Well, i hope that the RTG will go a bit more in the past and check (if they haven't already) some older horror adventure games that appear to share a similar concept with Draugen:

 

 

Scratches

Rhiannon: Curse of the four branches

Barrow Hill

Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder

Amber: Journeys Beyond

You are so right about Scratches, I actually found this game of the caliber of an Stephen King story, just because of the way it's told...
