I read the stuff on his blog and all he says is that sequels to Dreamfall (before and after!) are on the back burner and he doesn't know when they'll come out. What a bulletin that is!

One question I'd like to raise relates to just who Ragnar is in the Funcom power structure. I don't know. Perhaps someone here would have some info on that. For example, is he high up enough to influence policy, or is he "just" an employee? Also, does anyone know what The Secret World is?

It turns out that all this is just an excuse anyway to make my 100th post. I didn't think it would ever happen, but now I'm somebody. yes

RayBres -- and here I'm reading entire future plots into those words (and what's said later in the response section). lol

Okay, entire future plots is a bit of an exaggeration.

From that Wiki article:
Quote:
Tørnquist is credited with popularizing the term "modern adventure", a term used to describe contemporary adventure game design that began with games such as The Longest Journey, Broken Sword, and Syberia. He felt that a new term was needed to describe this new generation of adventure games since "the classic point-and-click 'graphical adventure' is dead... The point of the 'modern adventure' [...] is to bring adventure gaming back into the mainstream, and to use technology and gameplay advances to bring the genre forward into the 'next generation'."[1]

I don't think the Wikipedia article is correct in what they said about "modern adventure." TLJ and Syberia were classic point-and-click, as were the first two Broken Sword games. On the cited link, Ragnar is referring to Dreamfall as the "modern adventure," not TLJ.

I finally started Dreamfall tonight, and it is definitely amazing! I think that it is my favorite adventure yet. I played for around 4 hours tonight, and finally said that I have to stop. The controls take some getting used to and I don't like how I have to fight people. But the graphics and story are great. I like fantasy games (primarily because I like the fantasy environments) and fantasy with adventure is a great combination. The graphics really submerse you in the game. Personally, I like that the game is easy and isn't full of very challenging puzzles. I like that it is not point and click.

I just finished TLJ, the other day, and then decided to go ahead and start Dreamfall. It is great seeing the things that occurred in TLJ and then seeing them ten years later. I thought TLJ was decent. It was buggy and didn't compare to Syberia, which I think came out around the same time, but still somewhat enjoyed it. Dreamfall is a huge step forward from TLJ. I was very very surprised at the ending of the TLJ.

Anyways Dreamfall seems to be a truly great game and I hope to see more from Funcom.

And Mag, thank you for the excellent walkthroughs for both of the games, couldn't have done it without your help.

I agree with you Preston C. Well the fight scenes didn't bother me because they were too easy and casual. The game is great, it's like Alice being in wonderland although I disagree with you on the 'buggy' issue of TLJ. Apart from one bug (where a patch fixed it) the whole game was an hymn on how an adventure game must be built! Syberia is a totally different game but a masterpiece too! (one of my favourites).

Glad to be of help, Preston.

I agree with you guys. I am not an action or arcadey gamer (except SuperCow and laugh SuperGranny) but I enjoyed Dreamfall - gaming, story and puzzles.

Dreamfall made me crazy because I'd keep getting stuck on the stealth or those annoying timed matching puzzles that I kept missing and had to keep doing over and over and over and over ........and over over and over over and.... over and over over and over over and over over ...

That kind of thing is both boring and frustrating. If any new adventure games are made like this, I'd like to be warned in advance so I don't make the mistake of wasting money on them. If I want action in a game, I'd much rather play an action/adventure that includes cheats.

lol Jenny. I spent time analyzing those puzzles, and had a theory that the symbol/pattern shifts were usually close together. Then, after several attempts, I decided that I must have been imagining things when I thought they were close together.

I usually got them after about the 5th or 6th "over."

Were the symbol shifts totally random?

i think it was absolute terrible and unfair.mags walkthrough said the first time match puzzle needed 4 matches ok
but she said the last one was 7 matches i think about same time allocated.it was almost impossible for any normal guy

Maybe so, but it's still preferable to being chased around an underground cavern by a 20ft troll. laugh

LindaMarion,

There is a puzzle that includes hiding from a big monster that can get you killed.
