Picked up dreamfall on the steam sale 2 days ago. I played the longest journey to completion almost twice a very long time ago but I forgot most of the characters even though I still think it's one of the best advanture game ever made. The point is, I still enjoyed Dreamfall and its complexe storyline and great characters. Seeing april,crow and the crazy mage back was a truely great nostalgia trip.
That was all fine and good until I reached the ending. This game might have the biggest cliffhanger in the history of EVER!!! It puts halo 2 and half life episode 2 to shame. And the part after the credits just adds another layer of WTF.
I guess it's testament to the story for making me care about the fate of april, zoe, the crow and that assassin guy. Even if the resolution to some plot threads is pretty satisfying and the plot twists at the end are pretty good, it doesn't excuse the fact that they don't touch the larger conflict AT ALL. Leaving 5 billion plot threads hanging in the wind... for 6 years.
Now they say a sequel is in the works. I say Funcom is in deap shit over their goddamn MMO and that the studio contracted to produce the sequel might lose its source of funding. We might never learn what is the undreaming, what's the deal with that tower, what happens to zoe, april (come on), the crow and the assassin guy.
