Actually, Ragnar DID say in an interview, that later in the production, they will start a Kickstarter campaign to fund the rest.

They only got funds for the pre-production so far...

I read the interview and come away completely unimpressed. After six years of empty promises I won't hold my breath. I will not support any kick starter effort. First we heard after the release of the abomination known as Dreamfall. Abomination in regard to his total disregard of the TLJ story and characters.

we are told "you will not have to wait another seven years for the conclusion. Then years later we hear the conclusion will be released as chapters in serial releases. Now even more years later comes the pronouncement Chapters will not be episodic as chapters are to be understood as chapters of the character's life.

The creator knows full well with TLJ he created a groundbreaking game in outstanding story telling. He is to be commended for that. Finally Dreamfall is released revealing a complete betrayal of a beloved character. The game is rift with failed mechanics, terribly blundered ridiculous combat scenes and characters few cared about.

Now Ragnar hints that even though Chapters is not episodic it may not be the end but another chapter in an ongoing saga. This is the guy who gave us a terrible cliff hanger with the full knowledge no continuation would be in the works within a decade. Even now we have no idea when a release is planned. Reading his answers one concludes this guy is full of himself while not offering a hint of his intent. He did drop one hint suggesting the character, Faith is your next hero. Will he resurrect the characters of TLJ and finish their story or is he planning to dump Zoe as well morphing into the mysterious Faith instead? He did say character development is his intent but heroes are fleeting, (not central to the story as characters.) In other words build up a fan base for the hero but dump them without regard to the player's interest.

We will see what we end up with. Based on passed performance do not get your hopes up. You can see I am still angry over Dreamfall. Perhaps Ragnar will fix it, he has the ability to do so but I lost faith in his promises a long time ago.

There's no game, regardless genre, that I'd rather give my support in a Kickstarter campaign.

I love Dreamfall, I play it at leat once a year. It was different granted, but it is my 7th favourite adventure of all time, with The Longest Journey as my number 2. I trust Ragnar, he will bring us something great now that he will have all the freedom in the world to do so. Ragnar said that the new game will be a cross between TLJ and Dreamfall. Seems promising. We'll see how it goes.

This is great news tho I'm not gonna hold my breath...it seems every time I get excited about something it still takes years (Jack Keane 2 being a case in point!) Also I agree with most of the posts here...hope it's more like TLJ than Dreamfall...I don't play adventure games in order to have to hit keys maniacly in order to win a fight!
Fingers crossed wink

broccoli yay bravo Let's hope they don't mess it up like they did Dreamfall. The fight scenes were a joke, and the mazes drove me nuts!

No kidding. They're just starting pre-production. It will probably be at least two years before we see the game.

And then, isn't it just an episode?
