About This Game

Your purchase of Dreamfall Chapters includes all five episodes. The first four episodes are available for download today. The final episode will be available as a free update soon!


Dreamfall Chapters is the episodic follow-up to award-winning adventures The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey: a story about choices and consequences, dreams and reality, magic and science, chaos and order, and the broken heroes whose actions will shape the course of history in all worlds.

Set in parallel worlds — one a dark cyberpunk vision of the future, the other a magical fantasy realm — the game follows two unlikely heroes on their journeys across worlds to save the very fabric of reality from the Undreaming. Dreamfall Chapters is a mature, emotional, dark, magical and heartbreaking adventure that will take you by surprise.

With a brand new storyline and a fresh cast of characters, Dreamfall Chapters introduces new players to The Longest Journey saga, while returning players will get the conclusion they have been waiting for since the end of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

Key Features


  • Experience a deep and emotional episodic storyline that continues the epic saga of The Longest Journey — an award-winning story the New York Times called “compelling” and “terrific”
  • Sequel to acclaimed Adventure Game of the Year, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. A recap of Dreamfall is available in-game for new players
  • Shape the story and the course of your journey through your choices and actions, and live with the surprising and sometimes devastating consequences
  • Connect your game and see the choices your Steam and Facebook friends have made before making your own, and share your decisions with everyone playing the game
  • Explore beautiful, rich, detailed and original worlds that combine a stunning cyberpunk vision of the future with magical fantasy, along with a broken and decaying dreamscape

I played Dreamfall: The Longest Journey and completely fell in love with that game, so I obviously had to get the sequel. I love these games with all my heart- favorite series of all time- but I found myself a bit bored at times in chapters 1-3. Do NOT let this discourage you. In chapter 4, I felt all the flood of emotions from Dreamfall flood back and wrench my heart. Chapter 4 alone makes this game entirely worth playing, along with the in-depth characters, originality, and beauty throughout the entire game. I cried several times. Also, the decisions I've made warrant another playthrough in hopes that mistakes will be fixed. In Telltale games, it appears to me that the game is decided no matter what choice you make because your choices never affect the NEXT chapter. Not so will Dreamfall: Chapters. Each decision you make will have an impact on future gameplay. I cannot wait for chapter 5 to see what I will regret and cry over next.

The only thing that I did find minutely frustrating is that the "save and quit" option doesn't actually seem to save your present progress. Available load points or selecting Continue always seem to dump me at the autosave points that occur after interactions and storyline shifts. For the most part, this was only a minor annoyance as the game saves often enough, but returning to the game I always had to reassess my active tasks and my inventory to determine which steps I needed to repeat.

That said, I am anxiously awaiting Book Five after having played through Books One through Four. The visuals in the game are stunning, the variety of settings, the colors, and the people.

The storyline is intriguing, although not having played the prequels, I probably felt more of a knowledge gap than someone going in after having played The Longest Journal and Dreamfall. I feel a connection to the characters, from our main characters Zoe and Kian, to some of the more minor players, such as Bip and Nela. Revelations and connections made through the story kept me engaged and invested in the stories.

The puzzles throughout the game are all reasonably easy to accomplish. I think there may have been two places in which I was stumped on how to progress; one of which I could have solved if I hadn't been so adverse to interacting with the AdBots.

When making choices, you can see how your choices compare to the choices that other players made. In the few games that I have seen this feature, I have enjoyed getting to see the breakdown of which percentage made what choice. The recaps at the end of the Books that give you a sense of what impacts your choices might have in the coming books.

Aboslutely amazing. Plenty of story rich content and beautiful visuals. I bought this before knowing there were two other games before it. I then went out and bought the two before it and have been making steady progress through them while I wait for the final chapter in this one. Its a beautiful story and worth the full price for the season pass. I honestly dont mind the wait, I'm just excited that Red Thread has been putting their hearts into this game and it really does show <3.

One of the best games I have ever played. It has interesting characters, great story, choices that affect it, vast locations, good humour and graphics.

This is the third part of a trilogy: The Longest Journey -> Dreamfall -> Dreamfall Chapters. I didn't like The Longest Journey - too many puzzles, weaker plot - didn't finish it. Dreamfall and Dreamfall Chapters are completely different - more videos, fewer puzzles - more like interactive movies. I recommend to play Dreamfall before this one for better experience.

The pros are clear, the cons are: no good map (finding places sometimes takes much more time than it should), some puzzles (don't like puzzles). Though puzzles are not a big deal - if stuck I just read the walkthrough - that way they didn't bother me to much.

This instalment of the Longest Journey saga is pretty fantastic. If you're a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.

However, fair warning should be given: The developer does not plan to continue with the Longest Journey series after Chapters. Go ahead and play this most excellent game, but do so with the foreknowledge that you will never get to see the ending of the over-arching plot that was started as far back as The Longest Journey.

Written before the release of Book 5

Beautiful story and graphics with challenging puzzles. The characters are culturally diverse and refreshing. Before you play this game, you NEED to either play Dreamfall: The Longest Journey or watch a complete play-through of it. I skipped playing the first one and haven't had any confusing questions about the story line but the second installment is a must.

I've encountered two glitches that were just black screens and were fixed with closing the game and relaunching. It wasn't a big deal because the game auto saves.

Overall, I give this game a 9.5/10, mostly because I've been waiting way too long for the last update (Book 5).

Great game I recomend it despite the flaws.

Pros:
-great story
-nice art
-great characters.you would remember if any character died.
-strong story surmounts seemingly minor flaws that all come together to wreak havoc

Cons
-Unity engine caused alot of techical problems early on and gave many gamers a bad first impression.(understatement)

-Dreamfall still has some lingering point and click elements that need to die. specifically the puzzle elements as its not really a puzzle more like a guess/find whatever you need and bring it back (and at times you wont know what to do.)

-The government in the future knows where you are at all times but you dont know were you are. There is no GPS in the future so if you suck with a map then youre going to suck here even more so. The mapping is very bad and hurts the flow of the story. I was lost constantly and eventually had to play with youtube ready. pathing was fixed up later though with crow flying you directly to objective but crow isnt there forever and some GPS would have been nice.

-You absoulutely must access the internet for help during this game. seriously there is some off the wall crap in here that youre going to need help with. like figuring out what/where the puzzle is so that you can solve it kind of thing.

I absuletly loved the longest journey and really liked this one. One thing I find sad is that the longest journey was spread into more locations and this one mostly goes on only in a couple of locations. The fight system is completely removed, maybe it's because of the lower budget or other mechanic issues. Though I didn't find this problematic because it didn't really fit in with the rest of the game in longest journey either.

First thing first. I love playing The longest Journey and Dreamfall and I played them many times, but Dreamfall chapters is totaly diffrent story. The story is great, the graphics are beautiful, but is very poorly developed, puzzles are very basic, nothing special, many times frustrating and you don't known where to look. The cities are big and many times or all the times you just walking and running through the city like a naked chicken and you don't know where to go or where find this person. The game is very bugy and frustrating. I know that I will not playing the the game in the future, like I did with The longest Journey and Dreamfall.

The worrst thing in the game is autosaves. WTF. I can't save at all, why RTG why.

The game is basicaly role-playing without the battle system and not the classic point and click adventure game. When I finished the book 4, I tell myself, thank you that I don't need to play this game anymore. Thank you. Many hours playing for nothing. Thank you RTG for the worst adventure game I played last 25 years. Thank you.

First of all this rating is up to book 4 since the 5. and last book has not been released yet.

Do I recommend this game? Well, yes I do. But you should consider a few things before buying and playing this.
Dreamfall Chapters is the third game of the series which started in 1999 with "The longest Journey".
So in order to properly enjoy and understand `Chapters` you must have played at least the second title of the series `Dreamfall - The longest Journey'. Because it ends with a cliffhanger and `Chapters` picks up where `Dreamfall - TLJ` left off.
But actually you should have played `The longest Journey`as well. Because it`s a good game. And it does contribute to `Chapters` storyline. Now lets take a look at the game itself. Chapters is a game which is all about it`s storyline and characters. The gameplay is pretty much boild down to a walking simulator. Something that may annoy a lot of people who are playing or will be playing this game is the objective mechanics. In most cases it is not too obvious where you are supposed to go and what you are supposed to do. Solving most of the `puzzles` does require a lot of exploring, walking, backtracking, talking and patience. I enjoyed that. It forced me to explore the world which got me much more immersed in the games world(s). But the "trial and error" mechanic this game heavily relies on can be really annoying from time to time. Also the game is really, really slow paced. All the running around can get dull from at times. The design of the worlds themself is like in it`s two predecessors top notch. Immersing and beautiful. The graphics quality is okay. Could be better but they do look well enough. One major issue I had with this game are the characters faces. Sometime they look like puppets with no emotion. Thats one big atmospheric killer. On the other hand we should keep in mind that this games development is still in progress and it is beeing made by a handful of people. And they put together an amazing game. And despite some issues I had with this game i still loved it. The storyline behind all the Dreamfall games is really good. Could`ve easily been a real book.
So. To draw the circle back to my first question. Do I recommend this game? Yes, I do. To everyone who enjoys a good story and good solid characters. If you have patience and don´t expect action cutscenes a la Final Fantasy you`ll probably enjoy this one. And if you don`t mind a few minor bugs, some stoned faces.
And please do keep in mind that this game is developed by few people. It is not perfect.
But it surely is a very good game.

Dreamfall Chapters (and dev's Red Thread Games) deserves more fans as it brings together dual protagonists (possibly a 3rd as teased in the conclusions of each of the 4 books) and two stylish looking worlds, one fantasy, the other cyberpunk Europa, in an excellent 3rd person adventure title.

There's humour, interesting characters, and branching story choices that I eagerly look forward to exploring and replaying when the fifth and final book is released.

If you enjoyed Life is Strange and Telltale Games you'll like this one also.

I really want to like this game. It's beautiful, it's interesting, the plot is fantastic, the writing is great but... I basically have no idea where to go or what to do at any given point. I know what my objectives are but when I'm stuck in a futuristic city with no direction on WHERE to actually go at any given time, it is very frustrating. I got to the point where I was having to search online for where in the world to find X person or place at such a frequent rate that it became impossible to immerse myself within the game.

Essentially this game is like being from a farm in Russia and being sent to New York City for the first time and being expected to find a single lady named Nela restocking her supplies somewhere in the city. Somewhere. That is your only hint. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

As someone who deeply enjoyed Dreamfall and The Longest Journey, I waited for years for the sequel, and I was completely disappointed. The only good aspect of this game is the graphics. Zoe is utterly boring and unlikeable, and the game pushes a political agenda which is the last thing I wanted to encounter in a fantasy adventure game. I have not finished it and I do not think I will be able to. Coming from someone for whom Dreamfall was a favourite, this means quite a lot.

This review is for Books 1 - 4, as that is what has been released at this time. No spoilers.

If you've played The Longest Journey and Dreamfall and enjoyed the story, this is a must play. The gameplay is closer to a refined Dreamfall than it is to TLJ, but it's less buggy and without the combat. There are some "adventure" segments with puzzle solving, and a lot of exploring and talking. Lots of great returning characters and familiar locations, along with some new ones too. The artistic direction is pretty incredible, being able to see Marcuria in full 3D is a delight.

A new feature to the series is the introduction of decisions that affect the story. I have currently only played through the four books once, so I'm not sure how "worth it" it is to play again and see different paths, but it's in interesting addition. Decisions can for example effect which location you end up spending some time at, or which ally accompanies you on a mission. I could take or leave this feature, but some may feel strongly about it one way or another.

I am loving the story. Eager to see what happens in the concluding chapter.

A gr8 game with a gr8 story with gr8 characters, many of which are female, yet somehow there's no completely unnecessary nudity/sexualized clothing etc, which seems, for some obscure reason, extremely hard to come across in a video game. I must assume they have literally been through hell and back in order to achieve what nobody else could, therefore 10/10, also everything else is great.

Recommended for anyone who enjoyed The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

This game is divided into multiple books (episodes), none of which reset the chapter counter. I was confused by this at first. It makes more sense to think of the game as a volume of books with continuing chapters (book 1 is chapters 1-3, book 2 is chapters 3-5, that kind of thing).

With that said, give it until at least book 3 (chapter 6-7). I wish books 1-2 were a bit more palatable. The foul language and tense personal relationships just ground a bit on me because, in a game full of decisions, I had little control over them except at a high level. Oh well. I got past it. Chapter 3 is where it took off. Some of the early decisions can have big ramifications, but the thing is, you can only guess at their ramifications. There is no combat. The tension that combat might usually serve is replaced by decisions that you can only make once (unless you reload prior to the decision and do it again).

The music is setting appropriate, the scripting is clever (Enu is great, as is the best bird in gaming, Crow) and taps into events in previous Longest Journey games, the voice acting is clear and fleshes out the characters (again, props to Enu and Crow), and despite a bug now and then (as of this writing, 3-20-2016), I would recommend this game. 21 hours in and I'm through book 4 and waiting for book 5! If I was faster at some of the puzzles, a playthrough would have been a couple hours shorter.

This game, just keeps on building. A tad slow, but that is all of its deficiencies. The story is soo rich, and immersive, it has impressive choice decisions, and outcomes. It mixes, adventure, mild comedy, a vibrant setting, and uber cool characters. This game, is like an old school classic, which whislt isnt big budget, it doesnt need to be, because it is timeless! 9/10.

I wish I could recommend this game multiple times or give it stars, it's a 5-star adventure. It has something for everyone. The only catch is, if you didn't play The Longest Journey or Dreamfall Chapters, you will be a little lost. On the other hand, you OWE it to yourself to pick those games up, if the story of your game is remotely of importance to you.

One of the best story-telling/adventure games I know of. With a world rich of lore and an epic interwoven plot. Best if played after the other two titles of the franchise (The Longest Journey, Dreamfall). Especially for fans of good ol' fantasy/sci-fi point-and-click adventures, The Longest Journey is a must-play.

Thumbs up!

Amazing game. I played the 2 prequels shortly before beginning this one. They are a brilliant series. I recommend to play the 2 first games beifore this one, to fully understand the story, which can be very complex. Even if they are old games, it is really worth it.

I enjoyed playing choice driven episodic games like the Telltales' one or Life is Strange, but I really think that this one is the best I've tried in this genre. Your choices seem really to matter and the game is not just an 'interactive movie' where you make decisions. There are puzzles inbetween and the game is really a crossing between a point&click and choices matter game, which I enjoy both.

The universe is amazing (as I enjoyed the both previous games) and it has elements from both fantasy and sci-fi. The story is great and has a lot of plots. The characters are various and enjoyable. The graphics are beautiful and the music is nice.

I'm looking forward to playing the last chapter!
