Developing Chapter 4

Chapter 3 seems to have reached a pretty solid state by now. We're still receiving the odd bug report once in a while, but overall we're pretty happy with where we're at. If you find something you think seems strange, don't hesitate sending a line or two at this address:

Development on Chapter 4 is under way, and has so far produced some stunning looking sets. Chapter 4 will be the longest of all the chapters, but it's also a chapter where we revisit some familiar locations, so hopefully that'll keep production manageable.

Right now, Erik is working on some of the new sets, while I'm doing some much needed engine tweaks. Hopefully these tweaks will allow us to produce and implement content faster than before. I'm not a programmer, but so far I'm pretty chuffed.

We know we're straining your patience with our slightly spaced out release schedule, but judging by what we've seen so far, we think they'll be worth the wait.

We love you.

Cheers,

  4. Awesome work guys! There are very few games like this out there. Most of the games now a days are laking originality, innovation, a good story line, etc. The Dream Machine has achieved all of that in a way that I consider to be brilliant. The story is intriguing, mysterious and engaging, the concept art is remarkable from its visual presentation to its technical standpoint, the sound is beautiful and very atmospheric. Grate job and keep up the good work. I just can't wait for the 4th chapter.

  5. This was a really interesting and mysterious game that was highly captivating and puzzles weren't too easy or mundane. Bought all 3 chapters so far. Keep up the aweessommmee work!!!

    Hopefully you guys can give us a release date for the 4th chapter soon?

  6. I love these blog entries where you include images of the sets and design in progress. It would be truly wonderful if some day you two could make a video about the making of this game. The textures and colors and lighting are so wonderful, it would be really interesting to know how it was all created.

  10. THis is wonderful news!! Happy to hear about any update about the future chapters, even if its just to say that you have started on them or any news really. Its just cool to hear about the process as the process takes place and especially from the guys doing the work! Keep up the great work (obviously I loved the game or I wouldn't be checking up on it) and I look forward to future updates!

  11. Incredible first three chapters. Can't wait for the fourth - the design is incredible, and I'm very impressed with the puzzles - which is where most point and click developers go wrong!

    Let's not keep Alicia waiting too long to wake up ; )

  12. When the heck is Chapter 4 coming out? I don't mean to seem snappish but I paid for the whole package, and here we are almost a year later from when this was posted and it still isn't available.

    Either release it soon or give people like me our money back, this is getting kind of ridiculous.

  13. Hey,

    Developmental Crew Members. WHERE THE FUCK IS THIS?? I also paid for 5 Chapters ahead of time. This is completely ridiculous.

    I loved the first three though, I love you.
    Thanks,

  17. Could you give us an update how far the development is on Chapter 4? Most people who like this game are patient, but you are pushing your limits here...
