Greetings Red Thread Games & All of it's Fans and Supporters out there!
I'm beginning to write without any clear idea of what I'm going to say but I just woke up with this incredible urge to share my thoughts here with everyone. I guess it has been building up inside of me for quite a while now.
First of all I want to express my eternal gratitude to Ragnar Tornquist & The Team for taking the risk to create the sequel we all wanted (altho after seeing the results it turned out that it wasn't a risk at all regarding the support of the world - You maybe even got Backers from across the galaxy as well!). Also I would like to virtually shake hands with every single backer out there - from those who pledged 5$ to those who truly Had & Gave! And finally I would want to say a heartly "Thank You!" to all those who looked at the Pledge button & either didn't had the means or the way to contribute anything! Neither the people who gave little, nor You must feel outside the picture or on the border of it! Dreamfall Chapters is one beautiful dream which came true in our world & We're all in it Together! Even by sharing it with friends, familiarizing others with the game & eventually buying it when You can - Your contribution means something & when the game finally comes out, all of us who don't collapse from over-excitement will know that We Are a part of this game. Even if the town-crier does not recite Your name - the team and many of the fans will do in their minds on regular basis while feeling thankful that Dreamfall Chapters came true!
This is The One single-player game in which every player feels like is in a world shared by all others!
About me - I'm actually from a very little & very poor country. Piracy here is literally the only way for almost everyone to be able to do anything with their computers and I among the rest am a fine example of this nation's people. Or at least I was. After being a gamer my whole life, a few years ago I felt a new urge - to buy a game, and a single-player game at that, which I had just downloaded for free & played through. And I bought it simply for the fact that this game left a trace in my soul which through the years to come helped form me, not only by a little, to become the person I am today. This game was Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. And then I saw The Longest Journey game! After instantly buying both games I was feeling "wrong" in a way because there was not a single person around me to accept that I gave money for a game. Stupid bulgarian mentality...
And then believe it or not I waited for years for a simple fact to come true - I wanted to find someone I could truly share this experience with. After not only one or two years I found the Love of my life and lucky me - she showed interest for gaming. The very first games we played together were indeed the very first games I bought so many years ago. This was the first time I played The Longest Journey as well. Along with a few other games it became a thing for me to print High Resolution Wallpapers of favorite beautiful games & frame them for my room. There are very few games like those who truly give the player a Life Changing Experience! But they are worth it! And this is coming from a professional competitive player at that! Dreamfall Chapters is unlike any other game out there & it MUST become a new genre in the world of gaming! If I was one of those who had the money income which they couldn't possibly spend without wasting money for this purpose alone, I would truly say to Red Thread Games - "You have unlimited resources! Use them the best You can & literally change the world for better!". Even in this short narrowed society I live in I have both shown The Longest Journey games to people & found others who had already played it - all of which even to this day still talk about it and now can't wait for Dreamfall Chapters to come out!
Regarding this I'm announcing that right before Dreamfall Chapters is released I'm gathering friends, their friends & fans of this great saga as well at my place to play The Longest Journey & Dreamfall: The Longest Journey after which we'll go through Dreamfall Chapters with the Early Access from the 75$ Pledge reward on the new larger monitor with way better colors which I ordered for this specific purpose of being able to get the most out of those games! I live in Bulgaria - Varna. Anyone interested can contact me through my e-mail: WAYFJemobulas@Hotmail.Com or Skype: WAYF.Jemobulas. You're all welcome to share this amazing experience with us!
I guess that I sat down to write all this, even tho I have never done this before, for a simple reason - The Longest Journey Saga has been, is & will continue to be changing the lives of numerous people around the globe for the best! You aren't just making a good game, people aren't simply backing it up so it will become even better, this isn't just the next way we will entertain ourselves for another couple of hours. This means something to the few developers who are doing more amazing job than many large companies would given the same resources & time, simply because the feeling to have such an influence over thousands of people around the world is something one can not buy with any sum of money. And it also means something to us - the thousands of people, because living in a world such as ours, often times dull & profane while lacking any kind of promise for excitement in the near & far future, to stumble upon such a shining gem in the night charges us with the energy, smiles & dreams to go on living while spreading this feeling with the world around us!
Thank You Everyone for making this particular Dream Come True! We all live in each other's hearts & minds!
