Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is an action-packed thriller set in a large and varied game world mixing gritty reality with imaginative fantasy. The game features three worlds, three distinctly different playable characters, and exciting action-adventure gameplay wrapped in a mature, exhilarating, and innovative storyline.

Dreamfall is set in the 23rd Century, where a young woman accidentally uncovers a conspiracy related to dreams; a conspiracy that may herald the destruction of the twin worlds of science and magic. Confronted by mysteries that she cannot resolve on her own, she must seek assistance from the one person who might have the answers: April Ryan, the heroine of The Longest Journey.

“Bringing ‘Dreamfall’ to Steam is a great opportunity for us to bring this incredible game to one of the most exciting online gaming communities around,” said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. “Both Funcom and Valve have been pioneers in the delivery of games, so Steam and ‘Dreamfall’ are a perfect match. For an independent developer and publisher like us it’s great to bring our game to a service with over 10 million users totally passionate about unique and innovative titles.”

“It’s an honor to offer 2006’s Adventure Game of the Year via Steam,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “Funcom has created an absolute classic with Dreamfall, and we’re looking forward to working with them and highlighting their success as we deliver this title to the millions connected to Steam.”

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is available now via Steam. As a special two-week promotion to celebrate Dreamfall’s achievements, it will be made available for a limited-time price of $29.95, a $10 savings from its regular price of $39.95.
