    That looks like a tech demo with amateur voice actors.

    Book 4 will finally use Unity 5 so they can port to PS4

    It's boring.

    Well, they had to do something to artificially extend "gameplay" time.

    Well, there's a shock. Thought he'd be more asexual than anything like a soldier-fanatic should.

    And yet they shirk the more obvious, more logical, more consistent and still :incloosive: option of making him asexual. Silly.
    Although I am a bit surprised that the Azadi presumably don't mind teh gayz, that's usually an easy one for the "we hate people that are different"-factions.

    Also, looks like they disregard some choices. At least for me Queenie is under the impression that I lied to her, but I'm pretty sure I did no such thing? Some corroborating testimony in that thread at least.

    Just got an update on steam, have to restart from a save at the end of book 2 to fix it. Ugh.
    At least it'll go quicker this time when I know where the damn drawings are and can sorta remember the answers to the TLJ pop-quiz they decided to spring on you...
    Might also fixed the Na'ane thing, seemed sorta like she didn't actually come forward like I made her, but then again I only saw offhand dialogue about it. Didn't play that far.
    Edit: That's a nope on the Na'ane thing. Maybe I remembered my choice wrong. The kissing thing was fixed though.

    I wouldn't have expected anyone in the Dreamfall target audience to have a problem with homosexuality.

    It's sorta a problem when Kian has shown every indication so far of being at best a workaholic asexual and at worst work-sexual.
    It is also especially a problem when they give you a "romance" choice in light of that.

    If anything, the pixel hunt filler at the beginning only makes the rest of the episode feel really short.

    Show Spoiler
    Zoe's storyline was particularly uneventful this episode (yeah, Crow, whatever, but his appearance does not bring anything interesting story-wise so far - it's just some dialogue from which you don't even learn anything really new). Kian's only had one decent moment (learning the purpose of the tubes and the ensuing scene).


    I think it's obvious that the episodic format really backfires, storytelling-wise.

    There's a lot of pointless running around in every chapter, they would hardly last 2 hours without.

    So, yeah, I know I say this everytime, but fuck, this chapter was boring. Far worse than the others though; that awful picture hunt, the long corridors with the bypass switches...god.

    Only two more left to see what the long-awaited conclusion will be and so far it's pretty clear Ragnar never had anything planned out.

    There was already a lesbian teenage couple in the same chapter anyway.

    That's not very :incloosive:of you. If anything, this game's writing is so ridiculously bad that I am quite honestly surprised /pol/ hasn't labelled it as their own false flag operation yet. I dropped it in the middle of the second act and am yet to pick it up again. The environments looks really nice, but the writing, oh dear God, the writing. It isn't even the whole pseudo-progressiveness; the characters in the first half of the second act are even worse than anything Bioware has spewed out in the past decade.
