Three years. Five episodes. Tens of thousands of hours of work. It’s been wild. It’s been exhausting. It’s been an unforgettable experience. We’re both relieved and sad that the journey is finally over.

Except, it’s not over. Not quite. Not yet.

Four Red Threaders are still working on Dreamfall Chapters, along with a freelance artist and some other talented people. We can’t disclose what they’re up to…but we’re not done.

(Incidentally, #TFC is an underrated Pink Floyd album.)

We’re going to carry on with regular Kickstarter updates until we’ve shipped all the rewards (more on that in the next few weeks) and released everything we’re ever going to release, and probably also for a while after that. We don’t want our hugely supportive and lovely community to fade away. (And if you haven't joined yet, our forums are thriving!)

Since we haven’t sent out an update since the release of REDUX back in June, we wanted to take some time to address a few of your most-asked questions.

Game keys! By now everyone should have received their keys, though we do get the occasional email from backers who, for various reasons, have missed out on the updates. So: if you don’t have access to the game yet, please visit BackerKit and follow the instructions to redeem your digital rewards. (And if that doesn’t work, please visit our support forum for help, or email support@redthreadgames.com.)

Most, not all, of the in-game rewards have been fulfilled. We’re working on a patch that includes the Benefactors of Marcuria and missing Birthright characters, along with fixes and tweaks to the audio (and some other titbits). The estimated due-date for this patch is early October, and we'll send out another update when it's ready.

The German voice-overs are in production! It’s taken longer than expected, but our localisation partners and studio have been backlogged, and there’s a lot of dialogue to record. We don’t have a release date yet, but when we receive the dubbed files, we’ll make a (very big) patch.

A lot of the emails we get from backers are about physical rewards — and, yes, we are working on them. The boxes won’t ship until we have the final version of the game ready: we want the version pressed to a disc to be a keeper, not a patcher-upper. But we’ll make sure the boxes (and other goodies) are worth the wait, and we'll have a preview soon.

The missing digital rewards are coming along, slowly but surely. The game was our number one priority before the summer holidays (and for a couple of years before that); now we’re finally able to also prioritise not-game things — like the short stories and graphic novel. We’ll share more when we have more to share.

Lastly, we get a TON of questions about the PlayStation 4 version of the game. All we can say right now is “no, it definitely has not been cancelled and oh boy we can’t wait to talk about it”. In other words, we’ll have more news when the time is right (and these news will be exciting news, we promise, but we really can't say much more today).

So no, this journey isn’t over yet, not quite. Not yet.

In the meantime, stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter channels, post your questions and comments here or on the forum, and don’t hesitate to email us at backers@redthreadgames.com if you have questions or feedback.

REDUX is live!

It's finally time.

Book Five: REDUX is now live on Steam and GOG, and "soon" via the Humble Store (no ETA yet, we're waiting on word from Humble).

There's also a new trailer out, and it's beautiful and emotional…but we're actually going to recommend waiting until you've played the episode before watching it (and you definitely should watch it). There are potential (and light) spoilers, and you may want to stay unspoiled.

(Of course, if you don't care about spoilers and just want to get in the mood before playing, you should watch it right now.)

The fifth and final episode brings the saga to a close. The story is complete, and we can't thank you enough for your support these past three years. It's meant the world to us. We can't wait to hear what you think — and, more importantly, how you feel — after the journey's end.

But of course, we're not quite done with Dreamfall Chapters yet. There are rewards to fulfil and a 'complete edition' (final name TBD) to be made: that's the version we'll stick on discs and USBs and ship out to backers. But we'll send out another update about the physical (and remaining digital) rewards before the summer holidays.

Why are you still reading this? REDUX is out! Go download it now, and finish your longest journey!

REDUX release party, limited spots available!

34 likes

On Friday, June 24th, there will be a Book Five: REDUX – and full series – release party here in Oslo.

We have a number of tickets available to backers, and if you're in Oslo next Friday, and you want an invitation for yourself (along with a plus-one), please let us know!

Send an email to party@redthreadgames.com with the subject line 'I want to join the party' before 12 noon CEST Friday, June 17th. Include your name and contact information, and whether or not you're bringing a plus-one, and we'll add you to the draw. Winners will be announced by Monday, June 20th.

Keep in mind that we have limited capacity and this update does not guarantee you a ticket to the party. If you're not sure you can make it to Oslo, please do not join the draw, since you could be preventing someone else from attending.

We hope to see as many of you there as possible!

And the Book Five release date is…

Please check out the release date announcement and Book Five teaser trailer on YouTube.

There will be a full REDUX trailer on launch day — for now, we wanted to keep the spoilers to a minimum…and the anticipation to a maximum.

Eight days to go, folks. Eight long, warm days. Eight agonisingly slow days.

Stay cool.

One step closer to REDUX

Hey everyone,

We don't usually do this, because pre-announcements are silly, but it's been a long, long, looong wait — so here goes:

Next week we're announcing the release date for Book Five.

That's right, we just teased the announcement of the release date of our final episode. We hate ourselves.

Does this mean Book Five is close? Why, yes. Yes, it does. We don't make a habit of announcing release dates until we're very close and know for sure we'll make it. So by next Friday, June 10th, you'll know when the end of our journey is due.

Together with the release date announcement, there will also be a new trailer and new art — but as a reward for being extraordinarily patient and supportive, here are a few fresh screenshots from Book Five: REDUX featuring our three heroes.

(As always, beware potential spoilers!)

 

 

The release date will be announced in another backer update, so you'll be the first to know…next week!

(Edit: …and apologies for the typo in the first line of the original post — the Kickstarter update thingy has been acting up today, inserting and removing words and letters at will. Like that 'save' after this line. That wasn't us!)
