Back in 1999 point-and-click adventure The Longest Journey came to PCs with universal acclaim with a sequel Dreamfall: The Longest Journey coming out 7 years later for PC and Xbox.
I played Dreamfall back in 2006 on my Xbox 360 thanks to the game being one few backwards compatible titles and I did enjoy it as it was very different to what I had been playing at the time on the console.
A year later a sequel was announced called Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey and almost 10 years after that announcement, I've played the game on PS4 as Dreamfall Chapters which was released on PC a five part episodic adventure on with the complete story on console as the final cut.
Chapters during the course of development moved from Funcom over to Red Thread having secured the license thanks to founder Ragnar Tørnquist, who had wrote and directed the previous two games along with getting help via Kickstarter thanks to 21,858 backers pledgeing $1,538,425 to bring the title to life.
I didn't personally back the game as at the time it was only planned for PC but thanks to Deep Silver who pick up publishing it is now on console. This is great for long time fans that have moved away from PC since 1999.
Now I've got the history lesson out the way, let's talk about the Chapters and I've got to say I've not played much of it as a lot like other kickstarted titles the game hasn’t moved on from how it played back in 2006 on Xbox and with it being stuck in the past it is s hard to go back to play something like this, however that is what you would hope backers want from Chapters more of what they got.
I'm pleased the likes of the 21,858 got the game they wanted, for me though it isn't a good a game by today's standards and if you plan to play it go in knowing you're getting a old school adventure game.
