Red Thread Games Demos In-Game Footage For Dreamfall Chapters

Reveals Details Of The First Few Stretch Goals

It’s only been one week since it began, but the Kickstarter campaign for Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey has already reached 90% of the $850,000 needed for it to be successfully funded. To mark the occasion, Red Thread Games have published two new updates – one providing a new video with early in-game footage, and a second detailing the first few stretch goals. See all the details after the jump.

While they were very quick to remind everyone that what is shown will not reflect the final quality of the game, it does gives us a better idea of how the third-person controls will mix with the traditional point-and-click interface, something previously mentioned in the original pitch video.

The second update gave us a taster of what Red Thread hope to achieve with any extra money that comes their way, issuing a no-so-subtle picture to indicate their first stretch goal:

Further stretch goals will see the inclusion of The Loremaster, an in-game character who will provide players with the ability to dig into the backstory, and beyond that Red Thread promise to add in even more content to the game, making it a “Longer Journey.”

There was one final tease though – at $2,000,000 Red Thread will give us something called “The Longest Journey Home.” They refused to give any further info, but the fact that it uses a modified version of the original games’ logo does prove rather suggestive… [Kickstarter]
