Was there already a thread started about this? I didn't see one, but if so, Mods feel free to merge. Also wasn't sure this was the right place so also feel free to move.
When asked about the interactive book RTG was going to release before/when DFC comes out Ragnar asked this of us:
Yep, that's the plan! But I think everyone has a slightly different idea of what this interactive recap thingy is all about (including the team!) so we want to make sure players don't set their expectations too high.
Our main goal is to explain the story of Dreamfall (and the TLJ universe) to new players, and to bring old players up to speed on what happened previously. We want to do this in a fun and interactive way, but this is not going to be a hugely ambitious project that takes focus and resources away from Chapters. And hopefully it will be something that everyone can access, easily and quickly, on the web or in the front end of the game itself.
I'll be giving this a lot more thought in the weeks ahead, and if you guys have any input or wishes for what you'd like to see in such a recap app (recapp?) then bring it on! I can't promise to fulfil your wishes, but it never hurts to bring new ideas to the table.
A different thread would probably be preferable: this one is getting HUGE, and should remain focused on the episodic announcement.
So what moments from the previous games would you like to see? What format do you think the interactive recap will be in? How do you think it will be interactive?
Post your wishlist here.
I'll go first:
I of course would love to see something from my people (Alaitiens) but of course that's only if we're in DFC otherwise it wouldn't make sense.
But it definitely should lists all/most of the questions left open at the end of DFC and give us some info about the balance from TLJ.
And of course it should have Crow in it. Lots and Lots of Crow. Oooh! Maybe have the recap be from Crow's perspective???
And of course the Kin must fall into this somehow. And Cortez, I think he's important somehow so he should be in it somewhere.
I'm not sure about interactivity, how it would be pulled off. To me interactive is moving the characters around and manipulating stuff, so it would just be more game, but I don't think that's in the budget.
I do admit, I'm a sucker for the comic books that have been coming out with games that give the prelude or recap. Not sure how to make them interactive though. Maybe have stuff you can hover over and click on and it gives information about why it was important in the previous games?
