The studio is currently working on Dreamfall Chapters, the Kickstarter-funded sequel to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall; and Draugen, a first-person survival horror adventure set amongst the fjords and mountains of 1920s Norway.

Red Thread makes story-driven games for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and iOS.

History

Red Thread Games was founded in October 2012 by Ragnar Tørnquist — creator of The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, The Secret World, and co-creator of the Anarchy Online universe — in order to develop Dreamfall Chapters, the long-awaited sequel to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall.

In January 2013, pre-production began on Dreamfall Chapters and several other founders joined the company: Martin Bruusgaard, Dag Scheve, Rakel Johnsen, Audun Tørnquist and Quintin Pan — most of whom had previously worked together on games such as The Longest Journey, Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, Dreamfall and The Secret World.

In January, Red Thread Games also partnered with Blink Studios to work on Dreamfall Chapters. Blink consists of many former artists from The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, including technical director Kjetil Hjeldnes, art director Christer Sveen, animation director Eigil Halse and 3D modeller Siggy Galåen.

In February 2013, Red Thread launched their Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter, which went on to raise over $1,5 million, becoming the 10th biggest game Kickstarter of all time. Dreamfall Chapters is currently scheduled for release in November 2014.

In October 2013, Red Thread announced their second game, Draugen; a moody and story-driven first-person survival horror adventure set in 1920s Norway.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
