Ragnar Tørnquist’s much anticipated new entry in a beloved adventure series has attracted over $1.5 million in crowdfunding.

The Kickstarter campaign for Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey has closed with $1,538,425 raised from 21,858 backers, an average pledge of over $70.

“Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We are grateful and humbled, inspired by your support and belief in this project and in us. Now it’s our turn to deliver,” Tørnquist wrote.

“This is not just our game now. It’s yours, too. And we’re going to share it with you, the best we can. Oh, there will be mysteries because mysteries are still important. But we asked you to join us on this journey, and we’re staying true to our word. This is a journey we take together.

“Let’s celebrate the fact that Dreamfall Chapters is now a thing that will happen. It’s actually really, really real. And not only do we get to make a game; we get to make the Director’s Cut of this game. That makes me very, very happy.”

Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is expected in November 2014, on Linux, Mac and PC.
