The sequel to 2000䀙s critically acclaimed adventure game, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall initially follows the story of Zoë Castillo as she stumbles across a conspiracy that could spell the end of humanity. Yet young Zoë is not the storyline䀙s only protagonist. The original game䀙s April Ryan and new character Kian are also playable through multiple chapters, each offering distinct abilities and viewpoints in their respective worlds. Players will explore a futuristic version of Earth, a fantasy realm, and even the mysterious world of dreams while interacting with a wide variety of characters and solving puzzles from a third-person perspective.
Dreamfall departs from traditional adventure games in the degree of freedom afforded by the game design. Players are expected to interact with each world in multiple ways, whether it䀙s through combat, stealth, or communication. Interpersonal dialogue can be courteous, rude, menacing, or flirtatious, depending on the situation and characters involved. The interface is also different from typical games in the genre, as the screen is largely unobstructed by icons, menus, or text. Each character has a field of vision that automatically highlights objects that can be manipulated. The entire adventure spans an estimated 20 to 30 hours of play, with multiple visits encouraged to seek out alternate endings, hidden areas, and more. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
