After leaving Funcom, he founded his own independent studio Red Thread Games where he worked on the long-anticipated Dreamfall Chapters. Currently, he is working on the upcoming games Draugen, and Svalbard. [2][3]

Previous work

Around 1997-1998, Ragnar wrote a couple game concepts, one of which was a contemporary fantasy game called Heaven on Earth, which would later become The Secret World. At the same time, through the early 2000's, he began designing a game called Miracle. [4] Although Miracle did not become The Secret World, Ragnar has stated that it belongs to the same universe he calls The Hidden Places. [5]

Most famous for the The Longest Journey (1999) / Dreamfall (2006) series, he has also written the 331 page novel Prophet Without Honour on the story of Anarchy Online (MMO from 2001) and worked on the theme of that game.
