We’re currently putting the final touches on our review for Dreamfall Chapters (which goes live tomorrow!), so we got in touch with Red Thread Games to talk about the game’s development and its release on PlayStation 4.
PS4Blog: Hello there! Thank you for doing this interview at PS4Blog.net. Would you kindly introduce yourself to our readers and tell them a bit about yourself and your work?
My name is Ragnar Tørnquist, and I’m creative director at Red Thread Games. I’ve been making games for a frighteningly long time — I got started with the PlayStation ONE in 1994, and have worked on a wide range of games since then.
Some of the better-known ones are probably point-and-click adventure The Longest Journey, and massively multiplayer online RPG The Secret World. My latest game is Dreamfall Chapters, which is the first title from our new studio Red Thread Games.
On Dreamfall Chapters, I wore multiple hats, primarily writer and director. Since the game has a branching narrative, I wrote close to two novels’ worth of dialogue…most of which you probably won’t hear on a single play-through. It’s a big game with lots of choices and consequences.
