If you've been waiting patiently for a Dreamfall demo since its release this past April, you may have forgotten what you were waiting for by now. But just in time for Christmas, Funcom has offered up a little stocking stuffer in the form of playable section of the game.
Of particular note for some people may be the size of the download, which weighs in at over 3 GB (yes, that's gigabytes), so only broadband users with generous download allowances need apply.
Dreamfall, of course, is the sequel to The Longest Journey. Taking place ten years after the events of the original, and featuring two new playable characters along with the familiar (if not quite the same as we remember) April Ryan, Dreamfall moved the franchise in a somewhat controversial direction. Instead of a traditional adventure like its point-and-click predecessor, the new game is a full 3D, direct-control adventure with some real-time action elements in the mix. What didn't change, however, was the central focus on story and character, allowing players to once again explore the worlds of Stark and Arcadia, and meet up with a variety of old faces and new in another epic tale.
The demo can be found at standard download sites like GamersHell and 3DGamers.
