Finally, after six years of waiting, Dreamfall/The Longest Journey continues! I have never backed a kickstarter project before, until now. How could I not back this project when the intro video had me in tears (of joy)?
Ragnar Tornquist (creator of TLJ saga) is one of those few creators I feel a strong connection to (along with Joss Whedon) because we have such similar sensibilities as storytellers (romantics at heart, but sipping on the elixir of the bittersweet, while soaking in the intoxicating pool of fantasy/sci-fi and have a weak spot for lovable female protagonists). I adored The Longest Journey (my all-time favorite adventure game) when I played it all those years ago, and I really enjoyed Dreamfall. I can’t wait to continue the saga and see how it ends.
While all kickstarter projects have that appeal of supporting the underdog, Dreamfall Chapters is the only one that tugged on my heartstring like no other, because I believe in Ragnar as a creator, and I love the characters and worlds he’s created. But most importantly, it’s because I’ve walked the streets of Stark, seen the wonders of Arcadia, and I long to return to that world.
