So obviously you don't come here for the latest Dreamfall Chapters news: I'm pretty lazy about updating things as you may have noticed. Since my last post we've had the move back episodes, PS4-gate and the announcement, retraction and resurrection of the fan music contest (phew!).
But none of that matters, because Wikia have added maaaps! to their functions, and I've been pinning locations onto Ragnar's ancient Arcadia map.
Big ups to new member Whittard mt, too, for a Herculean effort tidying up articles!Read more >
Ragnar and Martin were at Rezzed again yesterday and, after showing a few new bits of concept art and a little more of Europolis, they showed the opening sequence of Chapters. HD videos will be up on Monday, presumably as part of a Kickstarter update, but the presentation can be viewed here. Obviously, spoilers abound in the opening sequence. I might wait until that's up to start dissecting. ;)
They also showed the trailer for Draugen, which will be going to Kickstarter soon.Read more >

This is our first Winter Solstice greeting from Arcadia since 2004. Lap it up, people! :D

Tina is going to post about Journeycon, but until then Silje (Skadet) from the forum beat everyone to it! Make sure you read both installments, as they also cover before and after events instigated by Tina. Lots of pics and drunken highjinks to check out! Red Thread also posted their own version of things in a Kickstarter update, and posted pics in a Facebook album.
They shared new concept of Zoe's hospital bed, a spooky room (in the Storytime?), and a screen of some white-boxed structures in the Northlands. Tina also took a pic of the concept art for the proprietor of the Cock and Puss! Note - most importantly - his appropriately embroidered apron.
There's also finally footage of Ragnar and Martin playing through the Friar's Keep vertical …

In case you haven't been paying attention (or have been waiting, in vain, for me to keep you updated), here's the big news for RTG and DFC.
Firstly, Ragnar and Dag are set to write the screenplay for a supernatural crime series on Norwegian TV called Underoslo. Regular readers may remember a screen treatment Ragnar posted on his blog in 2003 for a film called The Dark Places, which ended up being fodder for The Secret World (which was, I think, set in the same world). Underoslo sounds like it could be from the same source. It sounds a bit like a Neverwhere style secret world (don't ask me why I didn't just refer back to TSW).
The other, perhaps bigger piece of news is that RTG are developing a first person horror adventure called Draugen, after recei…Read more >
