Description from the packaging.

A ride along the rocky road of subconscious thought. Without shock absorbers.

Imagine yourself in a world full of nightmares. With Dali-esque creatures and mind-eating eyes. Picture yourself in an upside down landscape. Alone in a weird dream and wondering... what the...?!

Imported from England, this is the computer game that everyone is talking about - or soon will be - in the excited whispers and bewildered exclamations.

It's the game with the soccer ball that devours knife-wielding little girls...then burps.

The one with totem pole heads hopping on kangaroo bodies under skies full of fish.

The one with a giant killer bee that wants your cotton candy, the grandfather clock that points the way, and the lawn mower that grinds you to a bloody pulp.

Like the famous ink-blot test, the bizarre scenes, puzzles and arcade-style challenges in Weird Dreams will mean different things to different people.

Some will think them uproariously funny.

Others will find them strange and upsetting.

Still others will be outright offended.

Decide for yourself.

One thing is certain: there has never been a computer game like Weird Dreams. You have to play it to believe it.
