The Longest Journey and its sequel Dreamfall: The Longest Journey are often considered among the greatest 3D adventure games of all time. Almost a decade after the sequel's outing the long-awaited saga finally continues. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign that saw developer Red Thread Games nearly double its $850,000 target The Longest Journey is back in Dreamfall Chapters.

Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is a choice-driven narrative adventure set in a series of bizarre parallel worlds - a unique fusion of fantasy and cyberpunk sci-fi. A brand new episodic storyline acts as a starting point for new players while the over-arching narrative leads to a final conclusion for the far-reaching adventure series. Before you get downloading later this year though you'll need a rig up to the job, so read on to check out the Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey system requirements...

Dreamfall Chapters Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows XP 32-bit Service Pack 3
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 2.0GHz OR AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+ 2.6GHz
  • RAM: 3GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS 512MB OR Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c
  • HDD: 5GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • Audio: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card  

Dreamfall Chapters Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8GHz OR AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 430 OR AMD Radeon HD 5550
  • GPU RAM: 1GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 20GB Free Hard Drive Space

The minimum system requirements for Dreamfall Chapters are pretty reasonable, with a 2.0GHz dual-core processor needed coupled with GeForce 8600 GTS and above. Of interest to those with lower-powered systems is that integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics will suffice, while a smaller install size of 5GB should help those with jam-packed hard drives.

The leap up to recommended system requirements isn't too great, other that the processors which take a huge jump. From the relatively modest minimum requirements of a dual-core 2Ghz processor Dreamfall Chapters seemingly demands a quad-core i5 processor to get it looking its finest. Judging from Dreamfall Chapter's slow pace and often claustrophobic environments we would expect lesser processors top hopefully handle it just fine. Meanwhile the additional 15GB install size indicates the possibility of higher resolution textures, audio files, and uncompressed video for a better version of Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey.

I skipped the game for stupid reason but we all have our odd ways. I have very hard time playing Female or "weak" characters and in rpg:s like Fallouts i just have to put points in strength even if i dont benefit at all with my play style. Weird and dumb thing yes but still cant get over it :D.

Dude, that sounded kind of sexist. And what do you mean you have to put points in strength even if it doesn't benefit you? That doesn't make any sense.

Yep it doesnt make sense but if i see option strength i just have to use it :D *I didint wanted to bash anyone but we really have our odd ways all of us and this is mine. I watched powerlifting competitions very excited even as a kid and have always had huge appreciation when it comes to physical strength.

When it comes to games this happens. Like new DMC older was hard enough to get into but that new skinny guy ruined it. It was very well executed game but in wrong "paint" for me. Im not the "men should rule the world chauvinist But this is how it just is in gaming like Rpg i cant play rogue or mage if warrior is option

In short we all have what we like and we all have what we dont like. And some cases it can be little restrictive preventing some things like in mine.

Okay, I get where you're coming from now. You were talking about physical strength which clarifies your statement more. I see you didn't mean to dismiss females as lacking in character but rather physical prowess which is typically true.

Yes and the female thing was rather what happens on both sides i understand females who dont like to play with a male character completely. There is women i my self know from powerlifting meets that are damn strong.
