''Draugen'' is a first person horror adventure being created by Red Thread Games. Set in the 1920's, an American naturalist visits a Norwegian fishing village to find that the town's population have vanished. The player must explore the town, discover its fate and survive the night.
The game will introduce the rest of the world to some of the creepier aspects of Norwegian folklore, and is being developed for PC, Mac and Linux. It has been reported as slated for a November 2014 release - the same month that DFC is set for release.http//www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-10-30-dreamfall-dev-announces-first-person-survival-horror-draugen Eurogamer - release date
Red Thread received a grant of NOK850,000 (US$144,000) from the Norwegian Film Institute to produce the game. This makes up the lion's share of the game's NOK1,192,546 (US$200,000).http//www.nfi.no/bransje/tildelinger/tildelinger2013/interaktive-produksjoner/draugen Norsk filminstitutt - grant announcement
At this stage it seems as if work on ''Draugen'' will begin in earnest once ''Dreamfall Chapters'' goes gold, and Ragnar has suggested production would proceed in parallel with ''The Longest Journey Home'' (provided the latter actually happens).http//www.theundreaming.com/showthread.php?14582-Draugen&p=60922&viewfull=1
