    TLJH-Thoughts?

    So, I take everyone would be very very excited over this? I know I am. I so hope that even if we do not reach the goal in the Kickstarter, they should pursue it as the next project still.

    Actually we are saying another Kickstarter but that can't and shouldn't be before Dreamfall Chapters because A. Kickstarter funding fatigue. Not everyone will be able to afford. B. Again fatigue related, people will perceive two Kickstarters as too desperate for a company to do (especially the new comers) and C. I think a successful product might really increase their success for the next Kickstarter.

    Ideally, a company should be able to sustain itself through the sales and fund its own next time.

    They will pursue it as the next project in any case. Check this sentence:
    "And if we reach the two million dollar mark, we can greenlight the pre-production on The Longest Journey Home, and get ready to make that game next."

    To me, it means that the 2M is an enabler for TLJH, not a funding target. Which also means that current pledgers will NOT automatically get that game as part of the current pledge.
    It's actually kind of logical, but it may cause some ill feelings.
    A fully working kitchen holds a great many things, not least of which is a huge collection of ways of committing horrible murder, plus multiple ways of getting rid of the evidence.

    TLJ, was a finished chapter. Like the old lady in the mystery room, said: There are a lot of stories about the balance. And April is ALWAYS right.... (smile).

    Now I am wondering how the Dreamfall Chapters will be. Maybe thatīs enough, for now. I really hope that I do not have to buy a new PC to play the new game.

    I really hope we reach the 2 million mark. I would love to see the entirety of April's story in a true point and click game. That would be awesome.

    Also, they will try to get it out even if they don't make it. Read the update by redthreadgames. Lot's of good info.

    That's a good statement. One day late, but far from too late.

    good info. i hav mixed feelings. with dreamfall i remember reading that they were trying to push adventure games into the 3d era. but everything repeats i suppose. since tablets are so widely popular now the 2d point and click is coming back? well actually touch screen so there isn't really any pointing? just clicking.

    i'm excited for the story and the return to the games roots. but i also feel like we're not making progress. that we're stepping backwards

    also the hand painted scenery sounds and will look awsome but that also means it will be stuck to this generation. it was one of the problems they cited with remaking TLJ for higher resolution (even HD). because it was hand drawn there was no way to upscale it to newer screens.
    The days of our youth are fleeting; lets live without regrets.

    Not really. The problem with TLJ isn't that they used hand drawn backgrounds, it's that they lost the originals. Thus we only have the 640x480 resolution ones from the game. With this game they will likely include much, much higher resolution backgrounds, which are downscaled to the resolution of the users monitor.

    Also I don't really see it as a "step backwards". If someone writes a good epic book now, it'd still be a good book. Even if that style was invented like 3000 years ago.

    When I saw the article...

    I actually fell to my knees in shock, gazed up at the bleak morning sky, and asked God for a cup of coffee because I was probably dreaming. In retrospect, I was beginning to think I had to put the pieces of the puzzle together myself in some vain attempt to understand what caused April's dramatic personality change--or maybe not so dramatic. Thank you, Tornquist. Maybe now I won't have to come over to your house and brick you for writing April off as an embittered Ibarra cut-out. Drop Zoe for a minute. Savior of the Worlds needs her closure with her beloved fans first before we get with DFC.

    I'll definitely be playing this game firsties before picking up DFC or I'll have to skin a Banda for winter money! JK

    Welcome to the forums. But was all that necroposting really necessary? Really?
