Version 5.2 patch notes

Dreamfall Chapters has been updated to version 5.2, which addresses a number of bugs.

This update:

  • Fixes a problem with buggy graphics on Mac, resulting in square, coloured artefacts appearing in scenes. This also includes other visual fixes for the Mac
  • Fixes an issue with missing lights in the Enclave in Book Two, affecting dialogues with Enu and Likho
  • Makes it easier (we hope!) to solve the musical puzzle in the Journeyman Inn for tone-deaf players
  • Fixes an issue with the materials on the Dreamer in chapter 7, to make it less shiny. It was too shiny. Way too shiny
  • Brings back missing sound-effects and voices for the guards banging on the roof gate in the Friar's Keep scene
  • Updates the cut-scene with Mira at the end of the Kidbot job path — nothing big, it should just look better now
  • Fixes an issue with buggy anchoring in the settings menu
  • Fixes missing collision geometry in Marcuria, which made it possible to exit the world — no more YouTube videos of flying Kians!
  • Boosts footsteps on wooden surfaces, which was noticeable in (e.g.) the Hand That Feeds
  • Improves email format check for Red Thread account setup, to notify users of things like double @s
  • Fixes an issue with targeting Crow on top of Klacks' stage in Book Four, which was frustrating
  • Fixes a problem with the light beams in the Book Four Interlude on Macs, which made it super hard to solve the puzzle. Other light beams should also be improved now on Mac
  • Fixes an issue where players could enter the vintner's booth and confuse the vintner in Book Five. You don't want to confuse the vintner
  • Fixes an issue where you could open the game menu while a scene faded in, which caused the game to stop responding when loading a previous save
  • Some smaller fixes which might rightly be considered spoilers if we included them here, so we didn't

This version does not include German and French subtitles. These will be included in version 5.3, which is tentatively scheduled for next week.

Om dette spillet

Your purchase of Dreamfall Chapters includes all five episodes.


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

So a few things:

> To really appreciate this game, you need to have played both The Longest Journey & Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, otherwise you'll get confused.

> This game really takes after Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. Puzzle elements are light and the visuals are super stylish. This game also tries to continue with the themes of trying to create meaning and purpose in one's life in the throes of destiny.

> The choices you make in the game really only affect minor aspects of the plot. It's a lot like a Telltale game in that way. The plot didn't really wow me, it was kind of generic. There were other things that kept me playing, though. There are two main veins to the plot so far as I can see and to get to both, you need to replay the game, but I think if I tried to do that I'd be bored out of my mind.

> Characters are unforgettable! Some of the fantasy characters reminded me of something out of a storybook, but in a good way--like the author put some love and thought into them. Social representation is pretty above-standard here!

> The mix of the fantastical Marcuria and the dystopic sci-fi Propast were kinda cool, but I think they did the sci-fi parts with a much more graceful hand. I will never forget seeing a hijabi muslim chick cosying up with a punk wearing a neon-green holographic mohawk in a city that looks like something out of Bladerunner.

> It felt like a really pretty and interesting walking simulator.

> Oh my god there's like an attempt at a romantic arc at some points and it is completely awful and out of place. I have no idea why they put it in there.

It starts like The Longest Journey with mildly eccentric, charming, point-and-click style puzzles and a bunch of witty comments about random things surrounding our protagonist, but gradually turns into Dreamfall, where 90% of dialogues are exposition, puzzles are absent and the player has to run from point A to a character in point B who tells him that character in point C has an item that given to a character in point D advances the plot.

The first and a half episode is quite well made, having a little bit of the magical atmosphere of the first game. Unfortunately the plot kicks in, and it turns out to be the same one as in Dreamfall. WATI wants to build a bio-engineered device that shapes reality with dreams only this time not to sell it to millions and brainwash them, but... to conquer the world (and reshape it a bit). On the other side Azadi are doing the same thing but with steampunky thingies. It's basically Dreamfall only this time without a cliffhanger (yet, if you played TLJ, you already know the ending anyway).

I was disappointed about what Dreamfall did with "heritage" of TLJ, but it had some really well made elements, one of them being the, as I call it, "Azadi dychotomy" (ok, a little far-fetched name, but you get the point). Azadi freed Marcuria from Tyrens who were bloodthirsty, barbaric, murderous invaders, but afterwards started an occupation of their own. They imposed their religion on Marcurians, built a ghetto for magicals, but on the other hand saved the land, brought technology and advanced civilization, gave home and a warm meal to many. They discriminated magicals, but they didn't close them in labour camps or exterminate them. It was a really nice conflict of views best shown in a memorable talk between Kian and April. In Dreamfall Chapters however (a little spoiler) the Azadi are steampunk nazis, who start a genocide and want to rule the world as one pure race. There goes the subtlety...

There is some good stuff in Dreamfall Chapters (the second Saga interlude, Kian's first mission, Enu!), but there is a lot more bad. Hours of aimless wandering around Europolis, tons of exposition that is not only heavy-handed, but is a repetition of exposition form previous game, really (really, really) bad optimization and lags, maximally simplified plot and characters towards the end. Even Crow is not that clever and funny anymore (ok, now I'm just being grumpy).

In the end, the TLJ trilogy is like the Matrix trilogy. The first movie was great, but... No, wait. It's more like like Star Wars prequels. You are happy about a new adventure set in your favourite universe, but when you finally get there to experience it... ("Walking and talking, sitting and talking, sitting on a couch and talking").

If you played first two games, I would recommend to buy this one during a sale for a low price just to get (mostly) disappointed by yourself and reassure yourself that the only good game set in this universe is the original The Longest Journey. Playing it's sequels only makes one appreciate it more and more.

I really enjoyed this, and easily put 50 hours into it. It has an excellent story, and the environments are beautiful and immersive. Games like this are few and far between these days, and it brings me back to the adventure games of the 80s and 90s.

Thank you, Red Thread!

After its release in October 2014, I’ve been hocked on this game and followed it very patently throughout the years. It’s been a long journey to take part in, but a good one despite its bugs, bad optimized engine, and glitchy nature.

Dreamfall: Chapters is the follow up game to Dreamfall: The Longest journey, and you Follow Zoè Castillo and Kian though 2 parallel universes on a quest to find them self, separate friends from foes and save the eternal dream.

For me the story was very compelling since I been on the Dreamfall train since TLJ, and I quite enjoyed the almost bioware-ish choices addition to the game since it made me feel like I had an impact on the outcome of the story. I also really loved how some of the choices were so hard that I actually had to sit around and think for several minutes before deciding.
The main characters are also well rounded and as you progress and get to know them better, you start to care more and more about them.
The voice-acting was also very well done (Except a few characters *cough* Brian *cough*)

Graphically the game is actually stunning (at some areas IF you are able to run the game at a higher setting) but the animations quality could use some work since every time you interact/attack or fight, there seem to be no weight behind it.

As for Gameplay, it’s very much more of the same Puzzle and Explore type of thing as the previous title, but with more story driven choices.
Music and sound-wise it’s just great. Nothing to complain about.

Final word.
The game in my eyes is amazing and I felt a deep connection with the main characters all the way through to the end. I even felt a lump in my throat in the last book as one of the characters that I’ve grown very fond of, meets an unfortunate fate and gets reunited with an old friend.

If you are a fan of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey or adventure games in general, I Highly recommend checking this game out.

I like this game and the whole series, but well this game was good it really didn't live up to its two predecessors. It seemed a little rushed to me at times like it was trying to explain to much in to short a time and at places it seemed to expect you to have some level of understanding on the previous games, which is not necissarily a bad thing.

The final installment in the "The Longest Journey" trilogy. Being episodic, I really could not wait for the next episode after completing the previous. The ending, although not EXACTLY as I had hoped, helped to pull most plot holes together as neatly as possibly while giving some closure to fans of The Longest Journey.

A++ epilogue too.

Dreamfall Chapters: I was pretty hyped for this game when it came to Kickstarter because I loved the precursor. After playing all five "books" i come to the following conclusion.

Gameplay: The puzzels vary from classic combination puzzels to simple things like finding hidden items. The latter are too many and can be very annoying. Hints are always sparse. In terms of gameplay this game is not very good. There are also a few stealth passages. But you also spend a lot of time in dialogues and cutscenes.

Story: Dreamfall has a complex and intriguing storyline. You visit a lot of fantastic places and meet curious creatures. Unfortunately it does not live up to its promise. Book one to four shoves up twists and new characters and the common theme suffers. Book five finally gives some answers but they are presented in an unspectacular manner.

The graphics aren't the best but are atmospheric, the animations however are lacking in quantity and quality. The dreamy soundtrack is pretty good, the voice over too, the sounds could be better.

I also want to mention the blatant political propaganda. If you are a bluepilled normie you can ignore this paragraph but if you don't like cultural marxism this game will probably annoy you on several occasions.

I cannot recommend the game and I give 4.5/10 points

Warning: This not a review but a personal thought about the game. If you are looking for a review go check what other good people wrote :-)

It was 7 or 8 years ago, I bought a (long gone now) PC Gaming Magazine called PC Master. In it, there was a game called Dreamfall : The Longest Journey. "The long awaited continuation to the Longest Journey" it said. I started playing it and that was it. I fell in love with the protagonists. Fell in love with the story. But the second game ended and I was full of questions. And then nothing.

Years passed. I finished school, I nearly finished my studies. My father died. Life continued.

And then I heard about a kickstarter campaign to create a third game to the series. That was one of my happiest days of my life. It reminded me of a simpler time.

And today, at long last I finished the story of this game. One chapter of my life closed. But the story has not ended. My life continues and this game reminded me that every decision I take, adds up to who I am. And to where I am going.

Thank you Red Thread Games for creating an awesome finale to the series. Thank you.

[POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

As with many of you, I have many fond memories about the previous two games in this saga, so I really tried to like this game.

But what have appealed to me the most in the previous games in the series are notably absent in Dreamfall Chapters: the characters.

This series felt so good because it had such strong, yet very believable characters like April and Zoe, who looked so different from typical super heroines of other games at that time.

We could easily relate to them because they were just ordinary people, like us, at the begining of their journey. Both of the games allowed us plenty of time to familiarize with the characters, and showed us many little details about their personal lives, like going to school, hanging out with a boyfriend, and etc before revealing to us how their fate would change all that in an instant, which made it much more believable and astonishing at the same time.

However, with Dreamfall Chapters everything has changed.

Now all the important characters start with a big mission from the start, and as the story picks up the pace, there's no time to spend on those mundane little details which are, however, crucial in making them really believable.

It feels especially bad for Kian, who had limited appearances in the previous game but has been given much bigger role in Dreamfall Chapters, though without sufficient details to make him feel as familiar to us as Zoe or April in the previous games.

And his story almost feels like the writer couldn't decide what to do with him, as his personality seems to fluctuate from one moment to another. In the previous game, he made various comments about how hot magical womens look in Marcuria, or saying that how deep an impression he had when he met April for the first time.

Even in an earlier episode of Dreamfall Chapters, he looked to be such a guy who has led an abstinent lifestyle his whole life and he just begins to open up his eyes to the other sex, when he awkwardly allows himself to be warmed up to Enu, for instance.

But only a moment later, he just declares he's a gay so he doesn't feel anything about women at all.

Earlier on, he said he doesn't drink at all, and later remarked that beer was not so bad. And in the final episode, he's going about commenting how he can't stand a Northern wine brand compared to ones at home, as if he was some kind of a somelier himself.

At the beginning, he was presented as a serious, or even a blunt kind of a person, which is quite understandable considering his supposed background. But too many times, his character is abused to fill mandatory share of witty remarks which players might expect from an adventure game. But unfortunately, this series isn't The Monkey Island, and him not Guybrush Threepwood (or April Ryan, for that matter, as she had quite a few hilarious lines in TLJ).

It's very unfortunate that we have such a fluctuating and underdeveloped character as one of the main protagonist in this game, as he deprives us much time we could spend enjoying more familiar characters, like Zoe or even Crow, and he's not alone in that regard because they have introduced many other new characters in Dreamfall Chapters, who feel even more shallow and underdeveloped than the character of Kian.

Enu, for example, seemed she could become one of the more memorable characters in the series, but her potential completely wasted as the story moves on. The same can be said of the most other characters as well, as Dreamfall Chapters is filled with such cheap stereo types, like a girl who have a crush with the one who saved her, or a caricature of Hitler, for instance.

Even those intriguing characters from the previous games turned into cardboard villains in Dreamfall Chapters, like Brian Westhouse suddenly starting to play a Sith Lord impersonation (and with that signature 'bad guy' mask, and force choke ability), or Helena Chang becoming a typical 'mad scientist' we've already seen gazillion times in movies or other games.

A few characters which could have been memorable, like Shitbot, Bip, or even Mira are quickly swept aside after their brief appearances, probably to make rooms for what developers thought to be more important, like some out of place political agenda, for instance.

You will keep hearing extremely exaggerated and obviously ridiculous racial hate speeches from a caricature character of Hitler all through the game, until thankfully he burns himself out in the last episode.

And a cold blooded warrior in a semi-Medieval fantasy world suddenly reveals his most liberal mind for the one who wanted to kill so badly, once the target of his revenge begins a long tirade about how it is to live as a sexual minority.

Probably to emphasize the importance of social diversity, people in a magical world of Marcuria show more ethnic diversity than that of modern European countries, but somehow they can't stand to live with those have blue skins. It makes them even more unbelievable as their Japanese, German, or many such contemporary regional names, as the developers decided to name them after Kickstarter backers, apparently.

Granted, the plot of Dreamfall Chapters is quite complex compared to others, as it involves travelling across the multiverse and even shaping the reality itself by dreaming. But without strong characters to move the story going, and without sufficient attention to details, it simply feels like a cheap sci-fi comic from an artist with too big an ambition, and not enough skill to realize it. (And perhaps, the notably bad quality of animations and, in some cases, that of graphical effects have contributed much to that feeling.)

Understandably, the high points in Dreamfall Chapters, at least for me, were those moments when I could get a glimpse of old, familiar characters like Crow, April, or even Wonkers.

Thinking about those beloved characters made me realize that, however may I have been disappointed in Dreamfall Chapters, it's probably because I had such high hopes for the sequel of such a great series - a series which had so many memorable moments which haven't faded a bit, even with the disaster of this game.

And it also reminded me that how hard they must have worked to create those games, and even in the times of financial difficulties, how they remembered the promise they made, to continue and conclude the story of April and Zoe someday. And actually kept their words.

For that, I really feel grateful for all who have been involved in making of this series. Even though I'm utterly disappointed what it became in the end, I'm now fully aware all my fond memories of the series wouldn't have existed without their efforts.

I suppose I'll play TLJ and DF again someday, when the bad taste DFC has left me fades away. And then, I'll probably stop playing at what I believe to be the emotional climax of the series, which was the moment when Zoe meets Faith in TLJ: Dreamfall. And when the credit rolls, I'll try to pretend I didn't know how the story ends and Zoe and April had so much interesting journey left in them beyonds that big cliff hanger.

I have played this one first. By the time I end book 4, book 5 was not even yet announced but I already didn't had enough of it. That's when I found out there were two other Dreamfall Chapters Games,

The Longest Journey and Dreamfall; the longest Journey

and obviously, I bought those two too.

And how I loved it. this game, the people, the worlds, they all have a special place in my heart and I'm heart broken that on June 17, the journey will end.

I highly recommend, not only this game, but also the other two games.

Recommending this game is hard, it's for the long time fans, but few else.

If you've been here from the beginning, or even if you've just been here since Dreamfall, you need to get it. If you're not, then you need to give it a pass. The pacing is awkward, moving fast and doing great narrative points, then spending too long running seeming errands. The small budget shows painfully with grand ideas marred by pedestrian implementation, causing you to run around the same two areas repeatedly for the first four episodes. And it feels like it spends too little time actually building up to its ending.

But if you've been here all along, it's the ending you'll want to see.

If I was to sum up Dreamfall Chapters in one word it would be inconsistent. Everything from writing, to acting to graphics and performance has an inconsistency to it.

Coming into the game I knew there would be some areas that I wouldn't understand as I stopped playing both The Longest Journey and Dreamfall when getting to Marcuria, this didn't really hurt the experience until right at the end where I had to read other peoples opinions to understand the closing scene of the game.

Zoe is a joy to play in this game. She is well realised and is blessed with great writing and acting. A couple of plot points in Book 3 feel sluggish for her but in Book 4 she has almost all of the best moments of the game. Book 5 struggles to round all of her story up and feels like a missed opportunity.

Kian has the majority of the weakest moments in the game, with weaker writing and acting, a lack of consistent characterisation and too much tedious hidden object fetching. The supporting cast of Arcadia suffer from poor acting and writing, and Arcadia itself struggles with being a realised setting with too much anachronistic humour to undermine to plot it wants to host.

Saga is a good character looking for a good story. A fantastically built character that never fits into the story of the game, and then clumsily interjected into the deeper story of TLJ. The rest of the supporting cast are wooden with a few exceptions (Bip, Nela, Shitbot), with the bad guys suffering from poor acting and nonsensical motivations, with a cringe worthy Anthony and Cleopatra situation becoming laughable in the final book.

Outside of the story the character models can vary from outstanding (Zoe, Saga (and family), Crow, Witches) to poor (Reza, Anna and most of the human Arcadia cast, anything to do with The Eye, Baruti). Animation suffers throughout the game, with cutscenes frequently showing characters rotating on the spot and puppet like lip movements. A few moments shine through in Book 4 but animation holds this game back in a big way. Sound design is expressive and has a musical score that is well placed, fitting and emotional.

Performance is another huge problem. I've played the game on a good rig (i7 2600K, GTX 680) with constant frame rate issues even on the lower settings. I eventually had to play the game on medium and was around 40ish frames, but having to deal with a lot of tearing. I also have access to a more powerful machine (i7 4820K, GTX 980) which struggled to keep 60 frames on high, let alone ultra. The game is not bad looking, but it doesn't feel like it should tax systems anywhere near as heavily as it does, especially when it comes to lighting which causes huge framerate drops.

I wouldn't recommend the game unless you want to wrap up TLJ saga, but the final Book is disappointing and the ending not satisfying. The animation and graphics performance problems also detract from the storytelling, but the weakest aspect is the poor and sometimes unnecessary light puzzle elements the game has. If you have not played Life is Strange, consider playing that instead.

Simply put the best story you will experience in video games. Play all 3 games in order. The Longest Journey, Dreamfall and then Dreamfall Chapters. You will not regret it.

Been a fan of this amazing series ever since I played Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, years ago, and I was beyond excited to hear that they'll continue the story that left so many fans with so many questions.

Dreamfall Chapters is... perfect!
Storytelling, characters, environments, atmosphere... it's amazing!

The developers' love for this game is palpable in the quality that they're offering in this game.

Without a doubt, my favorite game in the last few years!

12/10
A+++

I just finished the final book so im still emotional right now about it but god. What a great game (and possible end to the series)

I LOVE TLJ and Dreamfall, didnt play them when they came out but god, those games were so good. And Chapters doesnt disappoint. Great story, amazing character, funny dialogue, emotional moments, many tears, etc.etc.etc.

I feel like anytime I talk about this series or someone asks me what it's about, I just can't help myself and gush about how much I love it.

Ran into minor graphical problems pre-patches, I dont think I've run into anything gamebreaking. As far as I know all (or most as of now, might be some in new book) gamebreaking bugs have been fixed.

Alll in all, playing these games was a wonderful experience and I'm very glad that I did.
