Video update! New gameplay & a second character!
We have a big, huge video update for you guys today!
In part one of this video update, Martin and Ragnar talk about our 'game spaces'. These are non-linear areas within the linear narrative, where players can slow down and take time out to explore, discover hidden secrets, immerse themselves in the rich setting, chat with other characters, and complete tasks in any order they want. When they're ready to move forward in the story, they can do so at their own pace.
There will be several of these large, open, free-roaming game spaces in Dreamfall Chapters, including the cities of Europolis in Stark, and Marcuria in Arcadia.
Martin also presents brand new prototype gameplay. Keep in mind that all the footage is of early work-in-progress content and features, and everything -- characters, animations, locations and GUI -- will change and improve as we build a team and begin full production.
In the second part of the video (which begins at 5:45), writer Dag Scheve finally reveals our second playable character!
This segment contains a spoiler for the end of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, so if you're planning on playing the previous game, you may want to skip the talky bit between 6:36 and 6:56. The rest of the video, however, is spoiler free!
