Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey demo produces five screenshots

Monday, 30th September 2013 23:18 GMT By Brenna Hillier

These stills from Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey are taken from an upcoming demo build, and include such delights as a broom.

The screens were distributed in a Kickstarter update. Red Thread Games has just finished work on a vertical slice demo – a special build of about 20-30 minutes with all the game’s major features, which allows for testing.

Red Thread will show the demo to the public in videos with developer commentary, but nor for a couple of months yet. In the meantime, these work-in-progress screens will have to do. They show Kian Alvane – otherwise known as The Apostle, and just one of a number of playable characters – in a cell in Friar’s Keep. He meets a former enemy turned ally, sweats a lot, finds a key to put in his inventory, and looks at a broom.

Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey was crowdfunded and is expected on PC, but Red Thread Games is also working on PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One release.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    I recognise that prison from Dreamfall. It seems like he’s going for more of the grimdark approach then over any other alternative. That’s what I was afraid of, honestly, as Dreamfall was terribly grimdark.

    I miss old Ragnar, who was able to write a genuinely novel and original tale of magic and technology, without needing to resort to that. I understand that grimdark is popular, but I still feel that The Longest Journey is massively superior to anything else he’s done, so much so that it makes him feel like a one-trick pony.

    Dreamfall was just depressing, and it looks like this is going to be more of the same. Fine for those who like it, but not for me.

    I just want to know what’s the purpose of the chain connecting the collar and the belt.
