Dreamfall Chapters is episodic, Book One due in November

June 29th - via: joystiq.com
By the time Red Thread Games launched its Kickstarter for Dreamfall Chapters in February, the studio had ditched its initial idea of developing an episodic adventure. Intentions aren't written in stone however, and an update from this week explains that Chapters will be episodic in its delivery after all. The switchback is meant to accommodate Red Thread's full vision for the game while still having something to offer fans in November, the launch date Red Thread had projected in its Kickstarter campaign.

The Video Game Kickstarter Report – Week of March 8

March 8th - via: zeboyd.com
It’s a famous computer RPG extravaganza this week! First, we have a spiritual sequel to Planescape: Torment with Torment: Tides of Numenera. It’s not an actual sequel to Planescape: Torment since they couldn’t get the rights, but it has many of the same staff members and takes place in a similar but original setting (intersection between various planes). The kickstarter set a new record for fastest kickstarter to reach $1 million in around 8 hours. It’s currently at $2.1 million so it has a good shot at breaking the all-time record for most money raised in a game software kickstarter (currently held by Project Eternity with just under $4 million). (Read More)
