My only real beef is the early access situation. I paid for one of the more expensive tiers specifically for early access, and now it seems this may not be available for book one? This is rather disappointing. While I appreciate the piracy concern, it's still a bummer.
But, I've been (not so) patiently waiting for this since 2006, so I suppose I can hold out for a few more weeks...
Zoe Castillo is the best, I'm totally in love with her. She has been one of the most memorable video game characters I've ever encountered, and I can only hope that Ellie Conrad-Leigh is going to reprise her role as Zoe because her voice acting has been a huge part of my infatuation with the character, I felt that she really added a TON of personality and charm to Zoe. However, that's not looking too good either, now is it? Unless this news was released at some point and I missed it somehow? All I've ever seen is news of Ellie's willingness to revisit the character, but I've seen nothing more about it since. Unfortunately, the person doing Zoe's voice in the trailers just doesn't sound like Ellie. At all.
But at any rate, I'm still super super excited for this and Red Thread has my 100% support for this game and Draugen for that matter, that looks very intriguing too, I can't wait to see more on that front.
Dreamfall = the first and only game/story that had me utterly in tears by the end, so there you go Red Thread, there's my challenge to you; I dare you to turn this grown man into a teary-eyed blubbering mess again. If you do, you'll officially win my award for the best damned video game story tellers ever.
