another hour or two!

We’ll be back in a few days with another development update. And we will see you in
the game, starting on—

Nope again. No cheating! Watch the video and then come join the discussion on our
official forum!

Somehow this all seems a little surreal to me.

 

Don't think I'll truly be able to believe in the reality of finally bein' able to continue on with the story until I see the opening titles on my own monitor. *vibrates with anticipation*

 

And I'm VERY glad I won't have to wait for anything to be mailed out to me. :D

Awesome news! I'm counting the days.

 

However, I do have one complaint. Is there a way to make Zoe's hind parts a little bit less appealing? Makes it hard to concentrate on the superbly crafted environments  :rolleyes:

Amazing, really looking forward to it.  Finished TLJ, took a break, and gonna start Dreamfall in a week here, just to be ready.  :)

 

Also, really interesting the way Zoe seems to have picked up some Vagabond-like facial markings in the Storytime.  I'm curious to see how that works.

I am excited. I am so excited, I´ll probably up my pledge if is not too late. I should be able to reach the $ 250,- tier.. Anyway, I´ll be replaying The longest journey and Dreamfall until that time!

 

Edit: I wish I didn´t watch the video though.. Spoilers..

Question - what does that mean for early access backers? What date do early access backers get to play the game? :P

What exactly did you find spoilery? I don't mean that as like...rude or accusatory, by the way. Just trying to understand. I thought it was spoiler free and I told someone that it didn't have any spoilers, so I'm trying to figure out what I missed.

We've actually had a pretty lengthy discussion on that topic in this thread. Short answer, we're still not entirely sure what's going on with that.

On a sidenote, the video contains spoilers for those who may still be interested in playing Dreamfall.

Yeah, we were discussing that in another thread. Popular opinion is that this particular art piece is likely connected to the RecApp, especially seeing as it appears to be titled "The Longest Journey."

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that."


Finding yourself is brilliant! You desert everybody, abandon your responsibilities and relationships, and focus completely on your own personal misery. It's a douche for the soul.
