For anyone around here who is an adventure game fan or who played The Longest Journey and Dreamfall back in the day you may be interested to know that Funcom has released the rights to the IP to Ragnar Tornquist's personal studio and he's currently looking for funding to complete the game. For those who haven't played them (and I haven't completed Dreamfall myself, need to go back and finish it) TLJ/Dreamfall are sci-fi/fantasy adventure games with a deep storyline and setting populated by interesting characters. The Longest Journey was a traditional point and click adventure game while Dreamfall was a 'modern adventure' game rendered in 3D with interactive hotspots as opposed to the more traditional pixel hunting associated with adventure games. Dreamfall Chapters is being developed largely by the team who did the original Dreamfall (art, game director, and a few others) so expect it to be more similar to that game.

So anyway, Red Thread Games is looking for funding and has a kickstarter up. If you're at all interested in modern adventure games then you can help make this one a reality and get a copy of the finished game for a $25.00 donation.
