* CoversAlwaysLie: Downplayed by the ''The Final Cut'' cover, which features an adult Saga literally front-and-center, despite her only appearing in one interlude and one chapter towards the end of the game (as an adult, that is). Players who buy the console versions without prior knowledge of the plot are left to wonder who the hell that woman on the cover is for most of the game.

* NoExportForYou: The final decision to have the game cut into episodes made things very difficult for quite a few foreign publishers, who ended up not being able to release the game in a particular language. One of those was Poland's [[Creator/CDProjektRed cdp.pl]] who had already confirmed that the newest installment of the much beloved there saga would, just like the previous two, receive full Polish voice over. When Red Thread Games announced that the game would not be released as a single entity but rather split into chapters, CD Projekt had to pull the plug on the whole project. Ironically, while investigating the whole thing one of fans called the actress who had played Zoë in ''Dreamfall'' and she initially believed he was offering her to reprise her role in ''Chapters'', which she was allegedly very enthusiastic about.
** On the whole, when it comes to languages, Red Thread Games earned quite a lot of hate from its foreign or even domestic fanbase, seeing as the game, part of a franchise that's widely considered the crowning achievement of the Norwegian gaming industry, did not get any Norwegian version at all (as opposed to the previous two) and was instead available only with English and German-speaking casts as well as with French subtitles. To make things worse, the latter two were notoriously released with massive delays compared to English.

*** A few guards you hear a bit later in the game actually ''do'' question the FantasticRacism, one even saying that a Dolmari gave him some good farming advice. Additionally, some are more than willing to [[spoiler: Turn on their own commanders]] and start [[spoiler: aiding the resistance]]. After all - the events at Ge'en are too bad even for ''them''.

Additionally, a guard will mention that while they don't like the racist "Front", they won't disrupt their meetings because they're not doing anything illegal.

Had it reached $2M, the devs would have greenlit the pre-production of ''The Longest Journey Home'' (essentially, ''The Longest Journey 2'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen with April in the lead role, which is a conclusion of her story]]). While series creator and writer Ragnar Tørnquist has stated that he one day hopes to release ''Home'' in some form, he also said that the project isn't happening for "[[https://twitter.com/ragso/status/741008032528801794 a long, long time, if at all]]."
