Update #12

Update #12: The Loremaster achieved! Additional stretch goals revealed!

We just met our second stretch goal, The Loremaster (library, lore, yay!) which means it's time to reveal a tiny bit more of the long road ahead.

First up, our next stretch goal:

This stretch goal is a big one, and it's an important one.

At one million dollars, we expand the journey, adding new characters, locations and things for players to do, see, interactive with and talk to.

If we do not meet this goal, it doesn't mean the story will be compromised or that players will be shortchanged. What this goal allows us to do is make the world bigger, richer, deeper, and more expansive, while leaving the core story unchanged.

Compare it with The Lord of the Rings movies: the original theatrical releases were great, but the extended editions were much better. The story was the same, but there was more depth, more context, and we were allowed to linger in Middle Earth and learn more about that world and its peoples.

With A Longer Journey, players will be able to linger for longer in Stark and Arcadia, and further explore the universe and its strange and wonderful characters.

And, of course, players familiar with Abnaxus from The Longest Journey will be pleased to see the return of this enigmatic character; a member of the Venar people, Abnaxus lives outside of time itself, though the events of the previous game had a profound change on how he, and his people, perceives time and the universe.

New stretch goals

Today we're also revealing four new stretch goals:

At $1,05 million we have "Mystery is important, senorita". This aptly mysterious stretch goal will allow players to enter and explore the House of All Worlds, which lies in the In-between (and which was seen, briefly, at the beginning and end of The Longest Journey). The House of All Worlds will in addition become part of the game's frontend, in equally mysterious ways.

Next up, at $1,1 million, is Storytime, which will allow us to create an interactive graphic novel, retelling the saga so far -- from April's first visit to Arcadia in The Longest Journey, to Zoë saving Faith in Dreamfall. Great for new players and established fans alike, this will give everyone a chance to revisit the important events of the saga, and perhaps also to get new insights into the events that transpired in the first two games.

Following that, at $1,15 million, is A Richer World. This goal contains an expanded and improved soundtrack, with more live instruments and vocals. In addition, we will also involve an established recording artist who will add some of their songs and sounds to the game. Beyond that, this goal includes improved graphics, along with an in-game gallery (run by a familiar character) displaying both art made by the team along with the best of all the great fan art out there.

And finally (for the time being) we have The Spoken Word, at $1,25 million, which adds much-requested German and French language support to Dreamfall Chapters! This goal also adds more spoken dialogue, including voice-overs for the lore in the library. Finally, this stretch goal will allow us to bring back more of the original cast from Dreamfall and The Longest Journey.

Beyond that point lies more platforms, more content, more features and, of course, The Longest Journey Home at $2 million. We may have a long way to go, but we're still not halfway through our campaign, and anything could happen!

Oh, and one more thing:

As a bonus and thank-you to our generous supporters, we're giving all $1,000 pledgers the $750 boxed Limited Draic Kin Edition (AKA Director's Pack) instead of the $500 boxed edition. This means that you now get everything from the $500 tier PLUS a signed (by art director Christer Sveen) print, along with a personal phone (or Skype) call from director Ragnar Tørnquist.

Of course, if you have pledged (or are planning to pledge) $1,000 and you really want the $500 Shifter Edition instead of the Draic Kin Edition, please let us know. We will certainly oblige!

      @Carlitusroda, FX Interactive?, porque tenemos que comprar una versión con DRM de un distribuidor español, cuando estamos invirtiendo en un juego con distribución DRM free? Como este juego salga en ingles, aleman y frances, y no haya subtitulos en castellano, yo personalmente mirare si se puede eliminar la donación, porque me niego a formar parte de ello. Si sale con FX Interactive, el código de Steam o GOG, no te va a servir, lo que me parece una tomadura de pelo. Venga ya, que van a usar pasta para doblarlo en noruego y nos vamos a quedar incluso sin subtitulos en castellano?

      No spanish, no money

      German language support would be great for many fans in Germany. I myself don't mind using the original English version, but many Germans still prefer being lazy and use the localization ;)

      Creator RussianNeuroMancer on February 20, 2013

      Russian localization of TLJ series in fact one of the greatest Russian localization ever made, and that not joke. If Dreamfall Chapters doesn't continue this tradition it will be just waste of Snowball/Lazy Games efforts that has been done on TLJ and Dreamfall localization. So please consider making Russian localization as part of this campaign.

      @AstralWanderer I really like this concept: "I would suggest "open sourcing" the subtitles so that fans can produce versions for whichever language they wish, even if the voiceovers are limited to the major ones."

      If they spend the time getting this system right - importing subtitles from flat text file - then fans can convert it into as many languages as they want without RTG having to sink the early funds into it. And fans *will* convert it given the opportunity. Maybe even later on, after launch, they can introduce localized versions with voice actors for the most popular fan sub'ed languages...

      Firstly, congratulations and thank you! :)

      Secondly, to be honest the 'The House of All Worlds' stretch goal took me by surprise. I mean of course I secretly wanted to know more about the place but this one place is actually perhaps the only one which I kind of thought (despite my secret wishes to know more about it) should not be shown to me and remain shrouded in mystery. Having said that, I trust you guys from RTG won't allow this place to become ordinary and forgettable. One suggestion from me - perhaps some unexplainable/weird/unbeliavable things could happen in this house which we simply won't be able (at least to some extent) to understand.
      All the other new strech goals are great and contain at least something which I would love to see happen :) BUT please don't tell me we have to wait until 1,250k is reached to have Ellie and Gavin confirmed!

      Creator William Walsh - Dream Traveller on February 20, 2013

      @cabfe: You are, of course, correct that changes would be necessary but, for example, point-and-click maps directly to the tactile interface with little modification necessary. I think the bigger problem would be screen size. You shouldn't have to change the graphics to support odd or low resolution screens. You might need a zoom capability.

      Another concern, if you do a console game, is that you wind up in bed with the console manufacturer who not only has control over your product through the approval process but gets a significant portion of your profit.

      Creator cabfe on February 20, 2013

      @William Walsh : Porting to Pads require to rethink the interface and gameplay to a tactile handling.
      That is very different from the classic combo keyboard/mouse and often requires planification during development.

    16. Missing_small

      Creator William Walsh - Dream Traveller on February 20, 2013

      These days, I don't see any real point to a console port. More likely, would be porting to the various PADs (iPad, etc). This would probably be a lot less difficult, require fewer (if any) compromises, and, overall, be more profitable.

      Creator William Walsh - Dream Traveller on February 20, 2013

      @AstralWanderer: Unfortunately, RTG cannot actually change any tier that has one or more backers. They can change a tier that has zero backers but there aren't many of those.

    18. Missing_small

      Creator AstralWanderer on February 20, 2013

      I'd agree with Nakano on the possibility of console ports - extra content instead would be more beneficial and console releases (with the UI/graphics compromises they involve) should be considered, on their own merits, after the Win/Max/Linux versions are done.
      Multiple language support is less controversial in my eyes but I would suggest "open sourcing" the subtitles so that fans can produce versions for whichever language they wish, even if the voiceovers are limited to the major ones.
      The pledge rewards may benefit from review too - the $350 level (limited to 100 currently) could probably attract more interest so increasing the limit to 500 or so should be considered (it should certainly have more positions than the $500 level). Higher level packages would benefit from more extras - an option I suggested previously was to have Stark and Arcadia versions of the $500 edition (with different extra goodies for each like a WATICorp employee ID badge, Fringe cafe poster and Bingo! voucher for Stark, "iron" coin, Azadi wanted poster, Journeyman Tavern flyer for Arcadia). The $750 version could then include both sets, with an option to "personalise" some of them (your face on the WATICorp badge and Azadi poster perhaps?) at the higher levels.

    19. 100pixels_%e2%80%93_among_the_stars.small

      Creator Nakano on February 20, 2013

      I am quite happy if we reach $1,15 million. However, I am a little worried if beyond $1,25 includes more platforms. Creating console ports will probably add a significant delay to the estimation of November 2014 (if the game should be finished for all of the platforms at the same time).

      The $1,25 goal says "This goal also adds more spoken dialogue, including voice-overs for the lore in the library.". Will the game have fully voice-overs in English by default if we don't reach this goal? Will it have fully voice-over if we reach this goal?

      Creator Carlitusroda on February 20, 2013

      I agree with others. It'sbetter to have at least the spanish translation with english voices, instead to spend the money in a poor voice acting.

      A game like DC will have at least 9,000 text lines. And this is a lot of money to spend in a bad voice acting. I just trust in FX Intercative to do that job. Otherwise, better spend the money in game content, or other languages text translation.

      At least, make it easy to fans to translate the game in any language. In Spain we have many fan translators who made translations who became official ones. If this is the case, you can contact with us, so the game came translated at day one.

      Creator William Walsh - Dream Traveller on February 20, 2013

      Speaking to the business part, it occurs to me that Germany currently has the strongest economy in the EU and this is likely to continue. Strong economy implies more discretionary spending is possible. An excellent reason to have a German version in the works.

      @All "Other Language" requestors: If you want your native language to be supported or become a valid stretch goal for Red Thread Games, you should motivate more people of your country to pledge. They can see in the Kickstarter accounting who pledged and where they are from. They are after all a business and have to decide upon future plans based on stats, market size, potential sales etc.

      Spread the word to your fellow countrymen, you have the power of influence over the course of any Kickstarter campaign if you really put your back into it! :)

      The Russian localization of TLJ games was too good to not include Russian voices in the last game. So I think RTG need to add more languages stretch goals. :)

      Creator Jens on February 20, 2013

      As a German I'd like the 'The Spoken Word' to happen (german voice overs were great on both games) but how about adding a custom subtitle option, so that fans can translate the finished game themselves (or even just mod the existing story), as long as they don't do it commercially? Has never been done before, at least by design afaik. I imagine you only had to provide a template with all the text to replace and a way to import it into the game. Fans would love that I presume and the game could exist in many more languages.

      Creator Flat Eric on February 20, 2013

      I think, subtitles are really enough. I don't like special localised versions at all. For me, it's more important to get a GOOD english version instead of a rushed german/french/spanish/... one. Subtitles should be sufficent.

    40. Kot.small

      Creator Rosveen on February 20, 2013

      Alright, to everyone asking for other languages: I've been told that localizations listed on TLJ's Wikipedia page were actually full localizations with voiceover (not only subtitles). I count 13 languages total. They can't possibly do all of them again with funds from the Kickstarter - focusing on the story, content, music etc. is much more important right now.

      It would be great to see Spanish (and Russian?) voice over and subtitles in a few other languages as one of the stretch goals, but doing voice over for them all is just too expensive. Which leads me to the next point, which is regional distribution. I don't know about other countries, but in case of Eastern Europe and popular kickstartered games (for example Project Eternity), translations are/will be done by the regional distributor (probably 1C/Cenega, though I'd really, really prefer to avoid them).

      Would it be possible to do the same for Dreamfall Chapters? It would cover Russian, Polish and possibly Czech translations, if they were willing to cooperate with you. I don't see why they wouldn't, since the previous two games were quite popular here.

      Just finished playing Dreamfall again. There's been a lot of speculation around TLJH being the continuation, or even conclusion, of April's story. It occurs to me that it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with April. It could even be Brian Westhouse's story. There were centuries between when he left Stark and arrived in Arcadia, and throughout that time all he wanted was to go home....
