Dreamfall Chapters has successfully completed its funding campaign, raising a total of $1,538,425 USD through the Kickstarter crowdfunding service. The project’s original goal – the smallest amount of money with which the developer could complete the game – was $850,000 USD. The additional funding means the game will be coming to additional platforms, like Mac and Linux, and will feature additional in-game content.
Notably, the project managed to achieve the last of its funding “stretch goals” before the end of the campaign. This goal of $1,500,000 USD was titled “the Director’s Cut”, and “adds back all the content we had to cut for cost reasons, along with a director’s commentary of the game”. The developer explained that by reaching this target, far beyond the original $850,000 USD goal, they can “hire more people [… and] bring back the locations, characters, puzzles and conversations that were left on the cutting room floor”.
