Dramfall Chapters, the long awaited continuation of the legendary adventure series, will be mostly funded through Kickstarter, series creator Ragnar Tørnquist told Rock, Paper, Shotgun. ”We will be doing a Kickstarter,”he said. “Not right now, but we will be doing it in the near future, simply because although we received a grant from the Norwegian Film Institute, which was announced today, that is only for the preproduction phase. That allows us to get started on a prototype but in order to fully develop Dreamfall Chapters we’re going to need more money and we will be going to Kickstarter.”
It was also announced that the new studio developing Chapters, Red Thread Games will be “competely independent of Funcom, but of course we will have a very good working relationship with Funcom and I am remaining with Funcom as creative director on TSW. Although, of course, Joel Bylos has taken over most of my responsibilities. The new studio is completely independent and we’ll be developing, producing and funding Dreamfall Chapters independently of Funcom.
We’re still in the process of getting the team together. This has been a process with Funcom for a while now and while Redthread is independent of Funcom, it’s definitely a collaboration because they own the IP and we’re licensing it. There’s a revenue share model in place so any collaboration we can pull off, we will.”
He finished with “we’ll be talking more about the game in the next couple of weeks and then we’ll get down to business and design things. Get moving on preproduction. Sometime early next year we’ll have more to show.”
