FUNCOM ANNOUNCES ASPYR MEDIA TO PUBLISH DREAMFALL: THE LONGEST JOURNEY
Highly Anticipated Sequel to The Longest Journey to be Released Spring 2006


Durham , NC (Jan 04, 2006) í¢â‚¬" Funcom announced today that it has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Aspyr Media to publish Dreamfall: The Longest Journey in North America .

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey , winner of multiple E3 awards as the best game in its genre, is the continuation of a saga that began in the award-winning The Longest Journey , considered to be one of the finest adventure games ever made. In Dreamfall , players are taken on an epic journey of exploration and adventure as they venture through a thrilling and emotional storyline. Dreamfall features a fully interactive world where beautiful music, stunning graphics, fascinating characters and unparalleled gameplay variety promises to bring the adventure genre into a new era. The game is to be released for Xbox and Windows in spring 2006.

í¢â‚¬…“Aspyr's enthusiasm and dedication to the game combined with their historic focus on quality made them a perfect partner for Funcom when it came to Dreamfall , and we feel certain we have found a publishing partner which will aid us in greatly expanding our sales reach in USA and Canada,í¢â‚¬? said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. í¢â‚¬…“We firmly believe that gamers are craving fantastic stories in games. The amazing feedback we have received on Dreamfall so far shows that it's one of the most anticipated adventure games in years, and we truly look forward to delivering the entire journey this spring.í¢â‚¬?

"The first time we saw Dreamfall , we were captivated by the art direction, pulled in by the gripping storyline, and impressed by its sophisticated gameplay variety" said Michael Rogers, president of Aspyr Media. "There is nothing like it in the market place. It is the next generation of adventure games."

In The Longest Journey players took on the role of April Ryan, an 18-year-old girl whose destiny was foretold in the prophecies. Having to save the balance between the twin worlds of science and magic, April`s journey took the genre by storm and redefined what an adventure game could be. In Dreamfall , which takes place a decade after The Longest Journey , players can finally revisit the epic universe. Not only will those who enjoyed the first game find out what really happened to April, new players can start afresh by following the new protagonist, Zoë Castillo, as she becomes involved in a conspiracy threatening the very future of mankind.

Dreamfall has already received numerous awards including í¢â‚¬…“Best Adventure Game of E3í¢â‚¬? from Gamespot.com, Gamespy.com and IGN.com. More information about the game can be found on the official website http://www.dreamfall.com .
