Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey has been announced on Kickstarter for a 2014 release. It’s the sequel to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey developed by Red Thread Studios. It needs $850,000 to turn the dream into reality.

The Kickstarter campaign page reveals that Dreamfall Chapters is pegged for a PC release, and is helmed by Ragnar Tørnquist, creator of The Longest Journey series.

The game will continue the adventures of mainstay Zoë Castillo, and it will conclude the saga.

Here’s a shopping list of game features posted by the studio:

  • Experience a deep and complex storyline that continues the epic saga of The Longest Journey and concludes the Dreamer Cycle that began with Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
  • Explore a beautiful, rich, detailed, interactive and living world that mixes a cyberpunk vision of the future with magical fantasy, along with a broken and decaying dreamworld
  • Play as three different characters, all on journeys across worlds, through life, and into their own hearts and souls
  • 3D point-and-click interface and engaging puzzle gameplay designed for fans of adventure games

Red Thread Games – founded by Tørnquist – explained that a third game in Funcom’s series has been an ambition for years, but now it looks like it could happen under the leadership of this new studio.
