As that great bard of the 20th Century known as 'The Fresh Prince' once crooned
Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer's the season for beaches, barbecues and ice-cold beers (or popsicles) — but
playing games is also an accepted summer activity. We'll allow it. So we hope you've
all had a chance to play Book Three over the summer. If not, there's still time, so get to
it. Go on! We'll wait here.
(Are they gone? Good. We're not waiting.)
With the holidays behind us (at last!) and the team back working on Book Four
(hurray!), we figured it was time for another brief update.
Book Three: Realms launched a month and a half ago, and we're very happy with
the reception and feedback so far. From what we've read — in your emails, forum
posts, tweets and blog posts — most of you enjoyed our third episode, and with an 8.5
most critics appear to agree. Phew!
There were a couple of ugly bugs in Book Three, and unfortunately we experienced
lengthy delays with the French and German localisations (the German voice overs
were only patched out yesterday). We hope to do better with Book Four, and we'll
have more on those bugs and the localisation issues in an upcoming dev blog.
On that note: in order to improve our communication and your insight into the
development process, we're launching a dev blog. We'll still send out email updates to
our backers (Kickstarter and PayPal) when necessary, but for more regular
development updates make sure to bookmark the new blog:
We'll have some cool posts in the weeks and months to come, and you'll hopefully get
to hear from various people on the team — and not just this disembodied, anonymous,
So what's next for Dreamfall Chapters? It’s still too early to talk about Book Four, but if
you liked the direction the story took in the last episode, you’ll love where it's heading
next: the stakes are higher, the drama's intensifying and our protagonists are striking
out on new journeys into unknown territories…along with one or two familiar locations.
Such as this one:
(We won't spoil the surprise, but we're SUPER EXCITED about this place and what's
about to happen there!)
That's it for now. Until next time! And please bookmark our dev blog — the first post
arrives next week! (Hopefully!)
