@Ragnar So, here's the thing (sorry, quote function still not working for me.)

 

I am happy to support anything, in any form, that is TLJ related. Playing your games has, without overstating or dramatizing it, been a quasi-spiritual experience for me. So, I happily backed the game, and I don't regret it one bit.

 

THAT SAID... I like a game I can play through for hours and hours night after night, leave, come back to it the following night, and still have the comfort of knowing there's still a good ways to go before it's over... but that I don't have to wait weeks or months for the next part of. Episodic games simply do not give me the feeling of owning a complete product as I define it, and nothing anyone says will persuade me that a single chapter in an episodic format game will provide that intangible, unquantifiable, highly subjective feeling.

 

Yes, I'm one of those old school curmudgeons who didn't like it when DLC became a thing, and resisted even more strongly when episodic formats became a thing. (Yes, I have tried both the excellent Walking Dead, as well as Back To The Future and others... until complete, I can say with confidence, they're not for me.) 

 

Given that this is the case, and given that I backed a complete product which was then changed to suit this new format... it's just a taste issue. Don't be "sad" about it. Be happy I gave you $50 and love your games enough TO wait that long and still have such dedication to experiencing them. :P Again, with all due respect (and gratitude.)

Weaving olden dances

Mingling hands and mingling glances

Till the moon has taken flight;

To and fro we leap

And chase the frothy bubbles,

While the world is full of troubles

And anxious in its sleep.

Hey there guys, i have a little question here. Will there be "The Art of DFC Book Two" etc. added later? Also i've noticed that backers were promised 3 stories in "Journeys Birth", does that mean they will get one extra? Sorry if these questions were already posted and answered somewhere, i'm just too lazy to do a search.

I think the backers who will receive those rewards get the whole thing, but those who simply preorder the game only get it for book one.  Otherwise, why did I take the risk and back this thing?  There has to be some perk beyond just getting the game that others don't get.  I mean some of use spent quite a lot of money to get those perks.

I'm okay with that, it's just somewhat unclear in the description. I still think that backers get a lot more (Artbook, Tome of Balance, much hated hairstyles and dresses, and, umm... material goodies?) so there is no reason to complain here.

Why DFC pre-purchase isn't featured at the main page of Steam or in the news section? That'd be a quiet good promotion for a final days.

DFC seems to be #64 on Steam's top seller list at the moment.

Yes. Everyone who has ever paid for a download of Dreamfall Chapters will get a season pass for all episodes/books. It is not, and has never been possible to buy only one or some episodes/books.

Fixed it for you.  :ph34r:

 
It's not THAT big a map.

 

All right, I think GOG has actually lost their TLJ/Dreamfall subforum out of sheer excitement.


BTW, they did not. But what they actually did was to change the forum name from "The Longest Journey/Dreamfall series" to "The Longest Journey series". Which is a simply awful decision, because no one searching for "Dreamfall" or "Dreamfall Chapters" would ever find it there. :(




...soooooo, when's today's update?

Hopefully not until after I've woken up, assuming it's happening (still happening...?).

I want to sleep, not answer questions. :P

Though, yeah. I will agree that the change of forum name on GOG seems odd.

Still, I hope pre-sales are going well. I didn't think I'd be this anxious about the lead up to the release.

Yes of course it is.
 

And finally, we are working on a proper Kickstarter update. Look out for it this weekend!

Well, he said we should look out for it. Not necessarily that we would be able to find it if we looked!  :o  <_<

So ... yes, I'm just kidding here.  :P

I updated that bit. It was too imprecise.

We're doing that whole 'reveal your sources' thing by the book now.

As the famous Jewish poet Rabbi Burns said:

 

The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley

 

:D

 

Actually, the next stanza is nice because it just tells us all to live in the present. Like The Power of Now, version 1785:

 

Still thou are blest, compared wi' me!
The present only toucheth thee:
But och! I backward cast my e'e,
On prospects drear!
An' forward, tho' I canna see,
I guess an' fear!

LOL I want it too but my HOA might be likely to kill me and the people where I live would probably label us devil worshipers and get together a mob.
