It's slowly getting dark outside. There's snow on the ground. The faint tones of distant Christmas music can be heard through frosted windows.
Most of Team Red Thread have left the building — and, in some cases, the country — to celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Computers have gone silent, fridges have been emptied out and icicles are slowly forming beneath abandoned chairs. (This happens very quickly; it's winter in Norway.)
Before the rest of us leave these rapidly chilling premises, we want to wish our backers a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Thanks as ever for sticking with us and for being the most patient and supportive group of backers anyone could hope for. We look forward to sharing lots more with you in the new year — including the long-awaited physical rewards (which are on schedule to start shipping in January, yay!).
But we can't end the year without sharing something from what we're working on, and art director Christoffer was generous enough to allow us to post a teaser from one of the upcoming Journeys comic-book stories. So here it is: page one of 'The Propheseer'. We hope you love it as much as we do!
(You can read the rest of this story, along with three more stories, in the Journeys collection, coming soon.)
And teaser #2: the comic-book stories in this collection are titled 'The Propheseer', 'Mountains to Cross', 'Time and Worlds', and 'Woka Sleep'. Every story is drawn by a different artist, set in a different world, follows different characters, all connected to Dreamfall Chapters.
We know you already own Dreamfall Chapters, but in case you're looking for a last-minute Christmas present and want to share the experience with a friend or family, The Final Cut is currently on sale in the Steam Winter Sale — at a 60% discount.
Our game is also part of two very cool bundles. The first is The Longest Journey Bundle, which collects the entire saga — at a 20% discount.
The second is a brand new bundle called Made in Norway, which collects five games that are...made in Norway!
Dreamfall aside, these represent the very best of the New Norwegian Wave of indie games, and we highly recommend giving this a look. You get Owlboy from D-Pad, Among the Sleep from Krillbite, Earthlock from Snowcastle and World to the West from Rain. This is a great, great bundle, and even though you already own at least one of the games, it's worth checking out — and you get a 20% discount on all the games, on top of the Steam Winter Sale discount.
We'll be back in early January. Until then, we wish you all a peaceful and happy conclusion to 2017!
