That's really nice!

I know that a few people on this forum LOVE The Longest Journey alot. Just like me

I played it about 6 times, and can't seem to get enough of this great game
Even though I don't get that 'Longest Journey'-feeling after seeing the screenshots

Dosnt really matter what the graphics are like, look at two other point and click games, Siberia and Myst Uru, TLJ dosnt stand a chance graphical wise, but is superiour in every other way to myst and Siberia.

Speaking of, there just early screens, theres more about Dreamfalls out now thanxs to E3, check gamespot, or maybe IGN

But its depressing that another girl takes aprils place, and the plot sounds AL LOT like the original plot (dreams, blah blah) i hope something original comes about, and i hope its more situated in arcadia, and less of stark. We'll wait and see...

Its in full 3D this time, as apposed to the scenery being fully prerendered, that explains the graphics not living up to Prerendered quality, apart from that its actually pretty good.

Gamespot, i just discovered, has 2 gameplay movies, not so long though.

Axx: The story may sound alike, but it's really different. Where as April was chosen, Zoe was not. With her it was really just an accident. Also, Zoe doesn't replace April. The main point of view is simply comming from her. I'm sure you know that April is still in the story, and it is said that she will also play a very important role in the game (though how much of this is true, I have no idea).

You're right about the graphics. When I looked at TLJ back when it was released, the graphics then were also pretty outdated. It's really not about the graphics at all. It's about the combination of colors, composition, and contrast. Look at games like BGE and SoT. They're several years old, but certainly nothing compared to Half Life 2 graphics. And despite this, they look simply amazing still, not due to graphics, but due to the composition of colors and cinematic looks.

I am also very excited about the fact that there are other TLJ fans out here besides me, Atre, FB2K, and Axx. I was going to make a thread myself about Dreamfall, but didn't think enough people would be interested to discuss it.

EFMI? U know what it looks like to me, GTA Vice city, who CARES, there are REALLY NICE screen shots aswell, but hell, the GAME IS MASSIVE, and there a norweigan team, who can really complain if everything is not topnothch, i CANT WAIT, for the sequel to be released, this fall... when is fall btw :P

Lightwing---> Thing is, i read, but i didnt read to the point that it would spoil things for me, but anyway, its still exciting.
Did u check out the new interface, its not point and click anymore, you sort of turn around, and a white light is coming out of u in the direction u face, and thats how u choose objects, i think they made it that way so that its convinient for console players aswell, this being the solution for point and click games on console. But still, i prefer point and click, but oh well...

Im a VERY recent TLJ fan , i finished it once the other day (i couldnt do anything apart from play it, it had me seriously hooked!!!) and i plan on finishing it again in the summer. Certainly a five star game.

Especially this picture bothered me, reminded me of EFMI's graphics. The original TLJ's graphics looked actually ok to me.
lol, the graphics there look like counter-strike 1.6

Thse two make me shiver:

TLJ looked "okay" because most of the background was prerendered. The models look very pixelated (but, once again, I really don't mind them). Dreamfall is practically all 3D, real-time rendered. And while I agree that the picture of Zoe on the bed is awful, keep in mind that it's an oldie. They've made a bunch of improvements to the environment. (Something about a new light model).

To tell the turth, I really don't care about the graphics as much as I do about the story, the characters (plus voiceacting), the environments, and the music, which basically contributed to the greatness of TLJ.

It is the future. I could tell you the years, but, don't want to spoil it.

Basically, the whole Newport has turned into a shit hole (Blade Runner style).

We have no idea what happened to Cortez. It really depends on wheather they managed to get the old actor back in the game

I really like the cel animation off that game, although parts of it look a lot like Broken Sword 3.

Yes, some parts of it are relatively cheesy.

But the music was really good...even though it may have been nicked from a few other pieces

Edit: If you guys want to, comment on the Ragnar Tornquist's blog. Maybe it can help or what not.
