Dreamfall Chapters is an episodic science fiction and fantasy adventure game, and is the second sequel to The Longest Journey (1999,) following Dreamfall (2006.) The game, which was crowdfunded on Kickstarter, is described as “taking the player on an epic journey across the twin worlds of Stark and Arcadia; from a futuristic cyberpunk vision of our world, to a realm of powerful magic and dangerous beauty.” It puts the player in control of multiple protagonists, including Zoë Castillo and Kian Alvane as they solve puzzles and navigate different environments.
