Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey has reached its funding goal on Kickstarter! Actually, it has gone well past to reach several of their stretch goals - many congratulations to them!
The first game in the series, The Longest Journey, is one of my favorite pure adventure games. It is one of the main reasons I really want to try to include an element of storytelling in my games. It proved to me that you could create a game that actually has some meaning and actually has something to say. The game takes a while to get going (OK, a long while), but I think the completely absurd amount of dialog in the first part of the game really pays off by establishing a solid character.
I'm definitely looking forward to playing this one!
