I have no idea. I think it was the lack of sleep. Also, possibly, the drugs.

Working on it. Thank you!

  1. We will try to make it compatible with XP. 7, for sure. I'm not the guy to ask but we'll try.

  2. I don't think so. We would prefer to spend our time telling new stories. Also, Red Thread doesn't have the rights.

  3. No, it wasn't, but Dreamfall was only the first part of the Dreamer Cycle. We were planning on doing Chapters a long time ago.

  4. Um, sorry. And thank you!

  5. ...yes. Play Chapters.

  6. That's very possible!

  7. We're talking about it!

  8. We are striving to make Chapters playable with mouse only, if you so wish, at least for the most part. Keyboard will be necessary for some things. A joypad won't be required, but it'll be optional.

I promise to get back to my blog soon! SOON(TM)

And we thought we would be able to continue the story quite quickly. The plan was to get to Dreamfall Chapters within a couple of years...but that obviously did not happen.

We have felt very bad for leaving players hanging for so long, and we're really happy we're getting to make amends now!

Thank you, thank you, SO so much. This is why I make games.

It's going back to the roots, for sure. We love Dreamfall, of course, but we also feel that it may have lacked a bit of the magic of TLJ, so one of the things we want to get right with Chapters is just that: our roots. Point-and-click adventure gaming. The soul, heart and magic of TLJ.

  1. Lots of places. Norway. Being Norwegian, growing up with the nature and spaces and fairy-tales and sagas and the sense of the immensity and mystery of nature. Also, of course, everything I've read and watched and heard. I have so many sources of inspiration, it's hard to list them all.

  2. BEST QUESTION EVER. Look, I love writing women, I love being around women, but I also like being a man for lots of reasons! Not the least of which is...women.

  3. I make games because I can't NOT make games. I love games. I love how they allow me to tell stories in brand new ways. I love how games allow me to do something so different and unique and new.

Tell your wife that it's not just about you and your wishes, it's about being part of something bigger, something important, and helping us create a game and a story that will last forever! Failing that, just kiss her and tell her you won't do anything she doesn't want you to do. GUILT HER INTO IT.

Hi...you! Yes, we will definitely try to get Ellie back. She's moved to Australia and hasn't done a lot of acting since Dreamfall, but we'll get in touch with her as soon as the Kickstarter wraps :-)
