Dreamfall Chapters, the sequel to the Longest Journey, has met and beat its Kickstarter goal. Of the $850K that they were asking for they ended up getting nearly double that, ending at $1.5 million dollars! From the success of both this and Double Fine’s Kickstarter, I think you can safely say that adventure games, particularly point-and-click adventure games, are far from dead. Ragnar Tornquist and his team did miss a few of their stretch goals, but are thrilled that the game was funded and then some.
The game is scheduled to launch in November 2014 and will be on PC, Mac, and Linux.
