Red Thread Games has ramped production up on Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey. Development of the Kickstarted sequel to Ragnar Tørnquist’s classic adventures is now in full swing, and the studio is busy hiring new staff and looking for cast members. Hit the break to hear the crew chat about how it’s going so far; heretofore unseen portions of the game will be shown at a conference in June, so presumably the short answer is “quite well, thank you”.

Klei Entertainement’s survival game Don’t Starve has launched on Steam. I noticed this last night while I was updating a game and having a chat session with a friend about The Hobbit and Game of Thrones. I almost hit the buy button. What I didn’t know though, was that the game will come with “six months of free post-release content.” Thanks to Eurogamer for enlightening me on the matter. The game is currently on sale for 10% off, and from all accounts it, sounds like a fun time. I may pick it up after all. Check it out yourself through the links.

An image has turned up purportedly showing the 2,000 page script for Beyond: Two Souls; EGM is one of a number of outlets that received a copy, although it’s totally blank. It doesn’t look like the kind of thing you should read in bed, for fear of concussion if you drop it on your face. Page count isn’t a very good measure of how long a complex a game is, unfortunately; word count is a bit better. We know Dishonored had 40,000 words of text and 90,000 of dialogue, for example; a short novel is about 40,000 words. Beyond: Two Souls is due exclusively on PlayStation 3 in October.
Thanks, manamana, Jessi.
