- Ragnar NAMERANTING! Started with this tweet. Then followed a couple of hours with names like Ranger Tourniquet, RAGEFACE TURNCOAT, ROCKBOAT TABLEFLIP, RUMPSTEAK TAMBOURINERATFACED THORNCOCK, Renegade Tapdancer, REDBEARD THREADWEAVER, RAGBRUSH THREEPQUIST, Revolting Trackpad, Raglbert Tømperdink, ROGUE VON TRILOQUIST, RONGEST JOURNQUEST, RAGENERD TUMBLR (etc, etc, etc)

Here's Morgan, who's modelling" (haha is it called that?) and "it's important to have a homely atmosphere. Every Friday we're sitting here, playing games, drinking beer, eating chips and have fun"
27 Jan 14
- Kickstarter update #44! (I wonder if the Crow video is the "special surprise" we heard about earlier this month.

Thread is OPEN!
 
Tweets today:
 
@RagnarTornquist: Major #DFC casting happening this afternoon. Always a ton of fun but also scary. An actor can often transform a character completely. (x)

@DagScheve: Just concluding a massive casting session for Dreamfall Chapters. Exciting stuff. (x)

@RagnarTornquist:
- Humbling to have so many top actors auditioning today. Wish I could reveal names: many famous faces. Hopefully we can announce things soon! (x)
- Best part: I get to read lines together with these fantastic actors. My Mira is the stuff of legends. Perhaps a tad too manly, though. (x)
- And so begins the massive rewriting process that always happens when you finally have a voice to go with your words. Next game, NO WORDS. (x)
- Oh who am I kidding. Next game: ALL THE WORDS. (x)
- While we’re on the subject of ‘next games’ & ‘words’: people certainly put a lot of words in their letters back in the 1920s. Backbreaking. (x)

I finally played Dear Esther, and which may not have been set in the 20's but was certainly very epistolary.

Ahh, makes me nostalgic! Wish I could be there. The Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT to 'the kidz') was my second home when I was a film reviewer at uni. The seats can be sponsored and there are many celebs who have donated money, so they have a little plaque with their name on the underside. "My" seat was right on the back row in the centre, sponsored by Woody Allen. Unfortunately, yes, there are some difficult news reports about him these days. Well, I certainly am in no position to know the truth. His work does remain as some of the best of all cinema.

 

Ahh, GFT, GFT. I'll be back one day to see how you're doing. :wub:

Ok, so it seems we´re gonna have multiple option to affect the story...sounds really interesting  :)

on the other hand, if my bad choice can kill someone in the game....well, it kinda makes me uncomfortable...hoping to avoid this  :rolleyes:

 

and now back to all events that Tina put in this topic, which I just discovered....ugh, I´m gonna need vacation to go through all this stuff LOL

In a bad way? Why?

 

Major player decisions are supposed to be major because they have sizeable (if not significant) impact on the story and/or on the characters. Every major decision point creates a branch, and even half a dozen of them can easily lead up to 20-30 different scenarios, which the game needs to handle. No story based game can handle that many scenarios coherently, so you either end up with a lot of independent threads flapping around (or, in a worse case, bad consistency), or you keep tucking back decision results into the main flow of the game, in which case the player will feel that his decisions are irrelevant, hence not "major". See The Walking Dead S1 for an example of the latter.

 

From a different perspective, the greatest charm of TLJ and Dreamfall for me are the storytelling and the character development. I'm not particularly (actually, not at all) keen on creating my own variant of the story, I want to discover and unravel what the RTG guys imagine. Path-altering decisions are fine for RPG games, but as far as I know, DFC is still an adventure :)
