Well tomorrow is the day. I have the GOG version so I've read on there boards that the release will be around 7PM.

So starting from scratch at GOG I'm wondering if the main download will include all the patches with all the "books" included or if I will have to download each patch separately. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

I have no idea old man. I'm assuming each of the previous releases are "Full games" up to the current release so you only have to install the newest one. I'm expecting I don't have to install each chapter. Is that how it works just install the most recent chapter?

I haven't downloaded ANY of the chapters because of waiting for the complete game - so for me a HUGE downloading task to come !! scared

EDIT :

I visited my account at GOG today and found four parts to download although I was expecting five.

Should there be five ??

I just downloaded the game and have to assume that all five books are downloaded because the game doesn't tell me. Anyway Mad if you download manually then there are 4 parts to download. I used the GOG downloader (not Galaxy) and downloaded the windows installer and it installed the 4 parts you mentioned.

For peace of mind I wish there were a way to know that all 5 books were downloaded but I guess I'll find out when I get that far into the game.

Okay, I have to revise my opinion of Book 1 a bit. It looks like the new version has a lot of cut content, which I don't like. sad It's a shame, I hope they add the original back in as well and give players a choice as to which they want to play. Luckily, I have several of my earlier GOG versions saved, so I can access the Book 1 in its original incarnations.

On a much more positive note, however, Book 5 was outstanding. praise Anyone who was worried about important questions not being answered can rest assured that everything is wrapped up beautifully. There are a few minor loose ends, but all of the important questions are answered. I think those who waited had the right idea, as this will flow much better as one full game. Not that I regret playing each installment as it was released in the slightest. smile

I can now say for certain that Dreamfall Chapters is tied with the original TLJ as one of my two favorite games, which is the highest compliment I can give it. Point and click purists may disagree as it's not as puzzle heavy (though there are definitely puzzles), and the characters are controlled via direct control. (Personally, this has grown on me, since I can develop back pains when I use the mouse too much. I actually have a slight preference for this control method now.) The story and essence, however, are much more on par with the original than with Dreamfall. In fact, I'd go so far as to say the characters are generally more in depth, and Ragnar Tournquist has only improved as a writer with time.

I do hope that even if The Longest Journey Home is never made, he continues making adventure games at some point. (I see another genre is on the horizon first.) As far as I'm concerned, there will never be another series like this one. praise

What was cut?
Do you think it was cut because they had trouble porting the content to the new game engine? -- that some things didn't transfer?

Or do you think it was cut due to a desire to "tighten it up?"

I think it was the latter. The problem I have with that is a lot of interesting story content was just cut out. Also, there was some gameplay removed in the Storytime section. There were two extra dreamers to help in the beginning, and now there's only one sequence to actually play after waving aside some other dreamers. (I'm trying to be a bit vague here, but Zoë is actually still helping. It's just the player is not nearly as involved, and some really great content is now gone.) Also, even in the sequence where you do actively help, some dialogue and puzzles were cut.

Now, I haven't gotten very far into the new Book 1 yet, so I don't know if anything was added to make up for (or at least balance) the losses. I'll let everyone know if that's the case later. For now, I still prefer the original Book 1 and will probably play that version during replays.

If anyone is interested and hasn't seen it, I recommend at least searching on YouTube. It's not the same, but at least you could see what was left out. There are probably some videos without commentary available.

Thank you for your thoughts on Book 5 and on the game, venus. You have really piqued my interest in it now. wave

I am always confused when a new download is ready for this game. I've been a part of this game since since the kickstarter and have the Season Pass. I've played all the episodes so far except the new part 5 released yesterday.
The new download does not show up on GOG for me....only Part 4. This happens to me every time a new part is released.
For some reason, I have the game on Steam and also on GoG.....not sure why that happened. Is it this way for everyone? I can't even remember if I played it on GoG or on Steam. I went to Steam this morning and this is what it it says:


"Just a brief update on today's launch of Book Five:

The final version has been uploaded to Steam (yay!) and the testers will have to do one final run-through of the episode to check that nothing has gone wrong in the build-and-upload process. This usually doesn't take too long, so we hope to have the Windows PC version live within a couple of hours.

Mac and Linux will follow shortly after.

When it comes to German and French subtitles, the localisation teams are still working on these, but they will be patched as soon as they're ready — hopefully next week. We'll keep you updated.

As soon as the final episode has been successfully tested, we will post another update with the change notes.

In the meantime, here's the Book Five launch trailer — but beware potential spoilers! If you're planning to play REDUX today anyway, you may want to hold off on watching it until you're done. (We won't blame you if you watch it, though: it's a great trailer!)"

I hate to sound ignorant, but I have no idea what this means. Where do I dl the new content?? Why is it not showing up on GoG for me??
Can everyone please tell me how they are finding the new content to download??

I hope they add the content back too.

Venus, I've played The Longest Journey but not Dreamfall or Dreamfall Chapters. It's time for me to replay The Longest Journey and take it from there. hamster
