Interestingly, in the interview, Ragnar hinted there may even be a further installment following the sequel. That would be worth waiting for as the final product would enrich the already applauded series. Long live April Ryan, the Scorpion and the other endearing characters. Thank you for a wonderful interview Philip.

I am on the "Faith" chapter of Dreamfall and I have loved every second. My dream is to beomce an accomplished games designer and playing Dreamfall has taught me things about games that I had never deeply considered.
