Dreamfall Chapters video talks game spaces, new character

Plus, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and other platforms "may still be of interest."

Red Thread Games have shared a new Dreamfall Chapters video update featuring lead designer Martin Bruusgaard and series creator Ragnar Tørnquist, who discuss the sequel’s “game spaces,” which are non-linear areas within the linear narrative where players can explore, discover secrets, chat with other characters, complete tasks, and enjoy the scenary.

There will be several of these “large, open, free-roaming” areas in Dreamfall Chapters, according to a post on the game’s Kickstarter blog. Confirmed areas include the cities of Europolis in Stark, and Marcuria in Arcadia.

The update also reveals the game’s second playable character to be Kian Alvane, who returns from previous titles.

Additionally, in an update on Tuesday, Red Thread mentioned the possibility of a console release.

“Other platforms may still be of interest to us,” it said in the update. “Ouya, Wii U, the next Xbox and PlayStation 4—these are options and opportunities we will consider going forward, but for now we will focus on the computers and, if we reach $1,75 million, mobile platforms.”

Watch the video below. Dreamfall Chapters is scheduled for launch on PC in November 2014.
