Dreamfall/The Longest Journey saga continues!

Filed under: Video Games — Rob Chang @ 6:51 am

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.

Becoming A Better Artist workshop (March, 2013) now open for enrollment!

Filed under: Art & CG,Arts & Media,News — Rob Chang @ 5:33 am

The next run of Becoming A Better Artist workshop is now open for enrollment:

The workshop will be from March 18 to May 13.

We had another sold out workshop last run, so make sure you enroll early if you want to get in. I’ve often had people tell me they waited too long and then all the vacancies were gone by the time they got around to enrolling.

We’re right in the middles of the current run, and it’s a really good one. The students are passionate, intelligent, hard-working, friendly, selfless, and very supportive of each other. Lot’s of amazing moments of discovery and precious insights.
