Ragnar Tørnquist’s new studio, Red Thread Games, launched their Kickstarter campaign for Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey today. Chapters is the long-awaited third game in The Longest Journey adventure game series, from which this blog takes its name. The series is known for excellent writing, strong female protagonists in April and Zoe, and a number of queer characters as well. The Kickstarter is asking for $850,000, of which over $280,000 has already been raised as of this writing. If the game is funded, Red Thread plans to have it ready for release in 2014.
