I miss the old point-and-click adventure games. Sure, contemporary games are action-packed and fast-paced, but there’s something to be said about a game that you can take your time with, if you like. I love the concentration on stories and puzzles. And while most contemporary games have those elements as well, it’s a nice change of pace to play something that’s more a thinking game than anything else.
Soon, Red Thread Games will be releasing the third game in the series, Dreamfall Chapters, with its first episode or “book” available in November of this year. Since it’s been nearly a decade since I first played The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, I thought I’d brush up on the series. The Longest Journey was released way back in 1999, and follows the story of April Ryan, an art-student-turned-reluctant-hero who travels between two worlds in the hopes of saving them both.
