Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey
hit and ricocheted off its funding goal of $850,000 on Kickstarter with three weeks remaining, which can only mean one thing: It's stretch goal time.
"And now it's our
time to deliver," Red Thread writes in its Kickstarter success update
. "We promise to make the best game we can possibly make, one that lives up to your expectations and the legacy of The Longest Journey saga. A game that we can all be proud of. A game worthy of your generous pledges. And we'll keep you involved, every step of the way. But first: stretch goals!"
If the Kickstarter hits $900,000, Red Thread will develop Mac and Linux versions of Dreamfall Chapters
. Earning $950,000 gets The Loremaster, an in-game library with books and mythology of the universe, and $1 million makes A Longer Journey
a reality, adding new locations, characters and stories to the game. Red Thread has stretch goals planned out to $2 million – which marks The Longest Journey Home
– though they're all shrouded in mystery for now.
By current count, the Dreamfall Chapters
Kickstarter has almost $890,000 and 20 days to go, making at least that first stretch goal a very probable thing.
