Hello guys, 
 
This guide is a list with all the Optional Things, Choices, Secrets and Consequences found in Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. I made this guide after reading a comment saying that Dreamfall didn’t have much choices and secrets. In my opinion the only problem with the choices in Dreamfall is that they were not communicated to the players well enough, and thus most people never found out about them which I want to change with this guide. If I missed anything or if you have any suggestions please tell me and I will add to/change the guide accordingly. Feel free to discuss the choices and the reason why you made certain choices below.

Wow. Congratulations, this is an awesome list. I knew about some of these, but others are completely new to me.

I have replayed through Dreamfall about a month ago. I suppose I need to go back again now. :)

Imagine trying to make one of these for Dreamfall Chapters...It will be endless and take forever! Haha. Maybe we should all pitch in to that one...but this is a very great job you have done!

 

But omg, I had no idea about some of these things...you can poison the sandwich? And lock the silver haired lady in the closet? I will have to try all these ways soon!...


"But even if we don't reach that lofty goal this time around, we hope to some day still be able to tell this story. April's story, all of it. All that remains of it. Because it needs to be told. And you all deserve to hear it. And we would love to share it with you." - RTG, March 1, 2013

That is a pretty good idea actually. We should probably make a thread with choices and outcomes when the game launches.  ;)

If anyone wonders why we're signposting the choices you make in Dreamfall Chapters…this is why. Very, very few people ever knew that there were alternative solutions and optional paths through the first game.

 

Of course, Dreamfall Chapters takes this to a whole new level — we dipped our toes with Dreamfall, but it wasn't an integral part of the game. It very much is integral to the story and gameplay in Chapters.

 

Also: thanks for doing such an incredible job with this!

Thanks guys. I am going to put up a similar guide for Dreamfall Chapters, that should hopefully be out soon. I will really need your help though, especially when book two comes, with all the different things that are going on.  ;)

You know, there are a few of those consequences I didn't know about either. How long did you take to find it all?


April Ryan is my friend,
Every sorrow she can mend.
When I visit her dark realm,
Does it simply overwhelm.

I don't know, but somewhere in a pile of playthroughs, walkthroughs and transcripts I think I found most of them.  :P 

If something is missing though, please do tell. 

 

The one that surprised me most was getting inside WATI HQ without the uniform. It creates a few plotholes (several of these choices do), but I really liked exploring the different options on that one.  :)

That's how I usually do it, what plot holes does it create?
