Description official descriptions

A severely ill man is on the operating table when a Daemon named Emily trapping you in your own subconscious. To escape you must find three orbs, which are trapped within a selection of esoteric mini-games set within the darkest Dali-influenced recesses of the mind.

Weird Dreams is a third-person game with action and puzzle elements. The game contains bizarre levels and unorthodox activities, including feeding a wasp cotton candy, beating up hopping totem poles with fish from the sky, and an encounter with a skinned chicken in a haunted house. The game comes with a "short novel" that explains the plot in detail and serves as copy protection.

An unique and psychedelic experience.

The Good
Playing a game where nothing is meant to really make sense on the first 15 minutes is somewhat intriguing, and draws you into discovering what's happening around you. And as it was advertised back then, it's all very based in the realm of art and dreams, namely the Surrealistic art movement...

The Bad
The game's controls are somewhat hard and not very intuitive... Maybe this was the whole point of it, making a game where you don't have absolute control -- just like when you try to react to something during a dream, the outcome is absolutely unpredictable -- but it definitely got in the way of gameplay.

The Bottom Line
Weird Dreams is a very cool and original action and puzzle game. Even though it's a bit frustrating at times -- taking the control and playability in consideration -- it's a brilliant game worth checking.

Designer Herman Serrano said he wanted to "paint" the computer screen instead of a canvas. He thought up all the strange level themes while on vacation from art school. The novel is by Rupert Goodwins.
