Dreamfall Chapters Adopts an Episodic Format to Provide Backers Something to Play

By   /   Jun 30, 2014

According to Indie developer Red Thread Games, its upcoming title Dreamfall Chapters will be adopting an episodic format to deliver its content to players, much like Telltale Games’ titles.

To explain their choice of episodic release, creative developer Ragnar Tornquist wrote on the game’s Kickstarter page, explaining how the game is turning out to be quite bigger than what developer’s first envisioned it, 8 years ago.

Instead of cutting back on a lot of content from the game, Red Thread has decided to go for an episodic release to not only provide backers the content that was promised, but also to stay on track with the release date which seemed difficult given the budget.

A total of 5 episodes are planned for the game with the first one being released around November 2014 as Book One [hence the name Chapters], titled Reborn.

Those who backed the game using Kickstarter or PayPal will receive all episodes for free, while others can purchase a season pass from Steam, GoG or Humble Store for PC, Mac, and Linux.

While the original Dreamfall [Released in 2006] was developed by Funcom, the sequel which was announced in 2007 is being made by Red Thread after being funded from a Kickstarter campaign which raised $1.5 million, as well as backing from Norwegian Film Institute.
