Last month. Wink (But not a graded “review” until the whole game is complete.)

But now, Hadean Lands.

@Jackal, when do you think the review for the first Dreamfall Chapter will come out?

I appreciate the sentiment, dosmith88, but nah, we’re not perfect. We even welcome helpful, respectful suggestions for improvement. We don’t welcome lazy, self-entitled demands on our time, or laughable “advice” about journalistic standards because we overlooked one link for a game few sites besides us will even bother to cover. Especially when we do more research in a slow week than clueless-yet-critical bystanders will do in a lifetime.

Darthmaul, clearly s/he meant “spoiled”, which is what always happens when someone decides to co-opt the comments to push a personal agenda. Everyone loses. But enough of that nonsense.

To answer your question, I asked Plotkin about that possibility and he says that the PC version will always require a third-party interpreter to play, but that he’ll investigate bundling the game and interpreter in such a way that it runs in a one-step format.

Interesting! Looking forward to hearing more about this.

Nothing has been “ruined.”  Let’s not be melodramatic.

I wonder if there is a plan in the works to bundle the game for windows in whatever program would work for it, like the ios version.

Nothing concrete. In October they finished the writing and were beginning voice and music recording as the game is being pushed towards alpha state. So still a ways off yet. As they said in their last update, “Ultimately we’re going to give the game the time it needs to be something truly special, and we really appreciate your patience while we do so.”

I would just like to ask if there are any news about the release of part 2?

I’m sorry that the comment page for Mr. Plotkin’s game has been ruined.
As for the game. It sounds great and I can’t wait to try it. I’ve played a couple of his games before and they are definitely among the best IF on offer.

Damn dude, can’t please them all. I have been a fan of the site for years, I usually only post when I see people being way to critical of your FREE site that VOLUNTEERS maintain out of the love of the game.  You have some nerve, Timshark, to sit here a criticize them over some trivial matter that has nothing to do with the game itself.  Who cares if they don’t post links to buy it, figure it out yourself if you want it.  Or how bout this, START YOUR OWN SITE if you want to be critical of this one.  Typical, complain about the exact way you want a site to be yet don’t have your own or contribute at all to this one.  Then you try and tell them how to be a journalist, god damn I hate these types of commentators Meh  I love this site, its perfect,  don’t change a thing; end of story.

Now your blaming the contributors and not the standars of this site. I´m not shooting at the writing-staff. I´m shooting at the site. The writing is excellent, but the presentation is in a monetizing-bubble.

I’ll be sure to tell our team of volunteers who freely devote countless hours of their time for your benefit that they aren’t doing enough.

Unbelievable.

Research and reference is a good journalistic rule. It gives your site and the reviews more relevance. And helps to spread the word of adventure games and it´s development.

That’s an affiliate ad, not an info service.

EDIT: And yes, I was pointing out that the official site was now available on the game page, which we always do when we know of one. It’s far more helpful when people TELL us things than simply demand more from us.

Now it is. At the bottom of the page- It wasn´t before. And the buy-link is only to the Apple store. There are a lot of ways to play and buy the game. Linux/Windows/Mac.

My point is that as you say “It’s not a reviewer’s job to tell you where to shop. That’s your job.” does not fit well with your buyers link to the apple store. And not anywhere else.

The official site is accessible through the “Game Info” link in the upper right corner. The reviews themselves don’t concern themselves with purchase links.
