Dreamfall Chapters is the long-awaited sequel to acclaimed PC adventure games The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
21,858 backers pledged $1,538,425 to help bring this project to life.

Update #2: Day two, some brief words

After only two days, we're two-thirds funded, we've passed half a million dollars, and we're all sold out of the $20 and $350 tiers. Cool beans! And thank you all so much for your pledges, your support, and your kindness!

The team has enjoyed a well-deserved break today, but starting tomorrow we're back at the office, back in action, and we have a TON of stuff heading your way. So here's what's new, and what's happening:

Ragnar Tørnquist just answered a bunch of questions in a reddit AMA. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Stretch goals. We're working on our stretch goals, and once we're in batting range of $850,000 we will tell you more about them. Hopefully, that won't take too long!

Pay Pal. We'll be working to get this up and running as soon as possible, for those of you who can't pledge via Kickstarter. We will let you know as soon as we know more!

More add-ons. We're looking into it and talking about it. Thank you all for your excellent suggestions! T-shirts is high on our list, of course, together with maps of Marcuria and Arcadia. We all love maps, and we'd love to make some maps for you. Expect more information about this very soon.

Boxes. We're getting lots and lots of questions about the various boxes, and we'll have more information ready for our next update, probably by the end of tomorrow, Monday. This includes mockups of the various boxes available to pledgers.

Forums. We're close to having the official Dreamfall Chapters forums up-and-running, and hopefully that will happen within the next couple of days. Pledgers won't be able to claim their badges before the Kickstarter has concluded, of course, but you'll be able to register and jump into the discussion, together with the developers.

Finally, lots of people have been asking for a high-resolution version of the exclusive in-game screenshot we shared with GameSpot. So we've uploaded it here, in all its 1920x1080 glory.

      @Palindrome: the house resembles another tree. It took me a while to see it

    2. Creator Tommy Bäckström on February 12, 2013

      You see an silhouette of the house up in the lighter area...

    3. Creator Andrew on February 12, 2013

      T-Shirts would be awesome!! Bring on the extra goodies/merchs.

    4. Creator Markus R. Mosbech - Dream Traveller on February 11, 2013

      I believe that it is the pledge description, not what the pledger actually gets, that can't be changed. It should be possible to make it an add-on but write in its description "this also comes with "tier x" and higher". Unless anyone knows anything to prove me wrong?

    5. Creator Palindrome Bob-XSF-I'm in AGL589-BG5.22 on February 11, 2013

      Nope, still not seeing the house. :-( If t-shirts and maps were to be included in higher tiers, that would pose problems as they can't change tiers with pledges on them, as was shown over and over again in the SpaceVenture-KS. So I'm for keeping those as add-on and not including them in any pledge.

      Hi Red Thread Games,

      Left a message 3 days ago. Not sure if you read it, but I am sure you are all getting tons of messages. Firstly congratulations on meeting over half of your goal already! I have never played the Dreamfall games, but I am super excited to get my hands on Dreamfall Chapters!

      I was also wondering if unique art prints can be an option for add ons? The art and design that have been shown for this game looks great, and I would love to have a print :). Maybe you can give options for people to vote on? It would be a cool way to engage the community too.

      Good luck with your campaign!

    7. Creator Adrian Hon on February 11, 2013

      Ditto for what igelelt says - I would pay something like $35 or $40 for the game plus soundtrack. As it is I don't want to spend an $30 for something that I imagine will cost far less separately on launch...

    8. Creator igelwelt on February 11, 2013

      Early-bird 20$ backer here. Please introduce a new pledge level between 25$ and 50$ (at say, 35$ or 40$) that only contains the soundtrack as a bonus. Would pledge in a heartbeat, don't desperately need all the bonus stuff of the 50$ tier nor can I afford it.

    9. Creator Leo on February 11, 2013

      @Aesgard: Yeah, it would make more sense to include them at high tiers, so people can pledge more, rather than just as add-ons. And yeah maps would be awesome!

    10. Creator Aesgard on February 11, 2013

      @Valentina: I'm also hoping for this. I'm in a low tier but I'd really love to move to one w/ physical rewards. Problem is, none of them looks enticing enough for me. DVD slipcase won't make me go to $110, $150 is digital and U$250...well, this means $600 in my local currency (plus taxes) so, yeah. Maps, however, can make blind for those $600 :D

    11. Creator Leo on February 11, 2013

      Hope you can include t-shirts and maps on higher tiers, so as to make them more enticing and for people to keep their pledge high! :)

    12. Creator Aesgard on February 11, 2013

      "maps of Marcuria and Arcadia"
      This! These should go on the boxes. I think every box should have at least one map. Would also be nice if they could be offered as add-on
      "Not a good idea to accept PayPal pledges before the Kickstarter concludes. Wait at least until you are well past the 850k mark."
      Listen to this guy, he is wise and speaks the truth :)

      I wonder if you're considering to allow us to increase our pledges via PP when the project is over

    13. Creator Florian "Fleug" Guillot on February 11, 2013

      I'm glad I got my 20$ pledge before it was all sold out :D

    14. Creator Mika on February 11, 2013

      I can't wait for you guys to spill the beans on the composer so I know whether to bump my pledge up to $50 or not.

    15. Creator Siresly on February 11, 2013

      @Gavin Lambert
      I get allergic to numbers when I'm tired.

    16. Creator Leo on February 11, 2013

      @Jonne: And super XS! Some of us are tiny...hehe :)

    17. Creator Jonne Lehtinen on February 11, 2013

      If there's T-shirts, I hope they'll come in super large too...

    18. Creator Leo on February 11, 2013

      Maps and t-shirts sound great! However I hope they will be add-ons for lower tiers only and will be included on higher tiers as bonus. (Yes I maxed out my pledge, but need the t-shirt and maps! hehe)

      I agree with others about Paypal. Wait until KS is over! :)

      Looking forward to boxes info :)

    19. Creator Marek Homsi Andráši on February 11, 2013

      Yay! U can see the house now...XD

    20. Creator Sam Kardell on February 11, 2013

      "I think it would be better for you to open the Paypal once you secure funding here, if you have 600 K here and 200 K on Paypal it wouldn't really work because you'd only get the money here once you've reached the goal" Second that too.

    21. Creator Sam Kardell on February 11, 2013

      I agree with previous commenters: Not a good idea to accept PayPal pledges before the Kickstarter concludes. Wait at least until you are well past the 850k mark.

    22. Creator Sam Kardell on February 11, 2013

      I would want the thumbnail of the kickstarter video (blue background with zoe and "dreamfall chapters") as a bigger resolution too! It would be a good wallpaper for the meanwhile, while waiting for my cooler ones ;)

    23. Creator VkBest on February 11, 2013

      I´m sure that Stretch goals would let to boost the pledges. I think you are wrong about this subject

    24. Creator Markus R. Mosbech - Dream Traveller on February 11, 2013

      Hey Red Thread Games. Just want to let you know that this sounds great!

    25. Creator Gavin Lambert - Tormented Dreamer on February 11, 2013

      @siresly: actually, it's 1919 x1079. So he was only a few pixels off. (And yes, I know you were joking.) :)

    26. Creator Diana Grigore on February 11, 2013

      The screenshot looks wonderful :D Now we're going to look at this on our desktop and make up different stories until the game launches :P

    27. Creator Ian Spaulding on February 11, 2013

      I'm excited to see where this is all going, but that grass gives new meaning to the term "crabgrass". It looks downright sharp, like it's reaching up to pinch anyone nearby.

    28. Creator Cyberbard | Shift Happens on February 11, 2013

      ... and I can finally see 'the house in the distance', with this new resolution!! xDD

    29. Creator Cyberbard | Shift Happens on February 11, 2013

      Oh man, I love you guys! Every day is like Christmas now that you are back in action. :)

    30. Creator Daniel J Day | Unreal World on February 11, 2013

      Sounds good, looking forward to Monday's update! :)

    31. Creator Sergey Bessarab on February 10, 2013

      Please! Give us Watillas! :)

    32. Creator Siresly on February 10, 2013

      Lies! The screenshot is 1919x719. I'm revoking my pledge!

    33. Creator Avid on February 10, 2013

      Bring on the T-shirts!

    34. Creator jorlinn on Linux on February 10, 2013

      Congrats! To celebrate this, I've upped my pledge a notch.
      Maps, yes please! :-)

    35. Creator Lenka on February 10, 2013

      "Maps! Get your maps while they're fresh. Top notch, hand drawn in quality ink by skilled Sunriders." :)

      Gosh the idea of maps gets me all overexcited. As does this entire project.

    36. Creator Stew OotG Knight/Captain Bloodcoffee on February 10, 2013

      T-shirts and Maps sound awesome!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with in the upcoming stretch goals. :)

    37. Creator Avery Campbell on February 10, 2013

      Yay, new desktop background! :D Glad to see updates coming in already, and looking forward to the forums and future updates.

      Also, backer avatars, mayhaps?

    38. Creator John Spencer on February 10, 2013

      Not a good idea to accept PayPal pledges before the Kickstarter concludes. Wait at least until you are well past the 850k mark.

    39. Creator Gareth Evans on February 10, 2013

      Thank you for the picture. I couldn't see the house before either.

    40. Creator Nathan Cooper - Chasing ∞ on February 10, 2013

      Woot. now i can see the house in the pic. :P

    41. Creator Abel GC on February 10, 2013

      I think it would be better for you to open the Paypal once you secure funding here, if you have 600 K here and 200 K on Paypal it wouldn't really work because you'd only get the money here once you've reached the goal
