A sad opening
Dreamfall Chapters' Prologue takes place immediately after the proceedings of Dreamfall. An eight year old cliffhanger is resolved only to raise an entirely new barrage of questions.
A cliffhanger resolved... yet still not appreciated by the fans...
A burial is shown in
Swamp City, Arcadia. April Ryan's body has been retrieved and is being set alight in a boat by Likho while onlookers – among them Na'ane and Balsay Bachim, yet probably also Brynn and Chawan – watch in silence. A Dolmari boy sings an elegy.
Seemingly at the very same time, a baby is born in the
House of All Worlds. An excited Magnus hears the first cry through a closed door. Unbeknownst to him, some kind of vortex appears in the living room, similar to the portals Shifters use.
