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 >
The Kickstarter page has just been updated to reveal details from the first "vertical slice" of the game. This is when a developer releases a small, playable section of a game. In this case, it takes place in the character of Kian who is trying to escape Friar's Keep. To do so he befriends the Captain and starts a riot. Step 3 is, of course, profit!

This is a little late, but I've been irregular with my updates. Red Thread Games] are hosting a TLJ convention in Oslo on the 23rd of November! As this news is coming to you very late, I'm afraid all of the tickets have sold out (in spite of problems with PayPal), although they tweeted that they might release some more closer to the date on Red Thread's Twitter or Facebook (so keep an eye out!).
For anyone who is unable to go (including this antipodean writer), there will be another Journeycon in November 2014... which is when DFC is due to drop! Maybe it will be a launch party; maybe it will be a launch week. I may have to reconsider whether I can afford to make the long journey over the world (and mine would surely be the longest, coming …Read more >
Ragnar, Dag and Martin spoke at Rezzed in Birmingham, and showed some more content from DFC.
We saw the full character designs for Mira and Wit, as well as two new characters: Eanu, a Zhid Rebel (who rides a Leapfur!) and The Mole.
There was also a sequence in Europolis, where Wit has tasked Zoe to hack a bot and have it operate as a suicide bomber.

The official new forum for Dreamfall Chapters has gone live over at theundreaming.com.
In other news, Tullis has passed the mantle of admin over to me as she has far more awesome things to be doing at her incredible job (can I mention what you do here, Tullis?).
I'm really looking forward to staying on top of all the new DFC content that drips out, and recruiting newbies from the ballooning community over at the forum. Onwards and upwards!Read more >
