Dreamfall Chapters, the follow-up to Funcom-developed adventure game Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, will use crowdfunding website Kickstarter to help in its development, series creator and Red Thread Games' studio head Ragnar Tornquist told Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
According to Tornquist the games studio received a funding grant from the Norwegian Film Institute to help with the game's pre-production; However, the studio still plans to receive additional funding using crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
"We will be doing a Kickstarter," he said. "Not right now, but we will be doing it in the near future... In order to fully develop Dreamfall Chapters we're going to need more money and we will be going to Kickstarter."
Rights to the Dreamfall universe were licensed from Funcom, the Norwegian studio that developed the series' two previous titles. Tornquist will remain on board Funcom in an advisory role as creative director of the studio's recently released MMORPG The Secret World.
Both Dreamfall Chapters and the new Red Thread Games studio were announced yesterday by Funcom.
