Go ahead, fishies!

My download just finished - I'm hoping this is as good as the first two in the series. The third was a bit of a disappointment, especially the bonus content, but still good. The first to were fantastic, however, so I'm hoping this 4th installment of the Dream Chronicles series lives up to expectations!!

Hoppy Easter, everyone!!

ETA: As a few other fishies pointed out, I miscounted the number of Dream Chronicles games - this is the 5th, not the 4th, and the 4th, Book of Air (CE) was the one that I was disappointed in (because of the length, not content.)

I only just bought Book of Air on the $2.99 special LOL

...Even though I have been asking for something different - I think I will pass on a CE here

Easter Egg ... or not ? Downloading, watched the video, graphics beautiful as usual. BUT I've been so disappointed with Book of Air (which I bought without trying having loved the others) that I will wait for someone to finish it and comment before I buy. Book of Air was so short that it really didn't deserve to be a CE. I will consider the "Finished it" comments to know if I buy the CE or wait for the SE. Either way it's a buy as I just can be short of one Dream Chronicle.

I'll pass too. My big Easter Bunny bought me a brand new computer for Easter. And he bought me a brand new 3 weeks ago. I need a backup for my games lol. So I will enjoy the other games I haven't played yet. Besides, there is the CE from Thursday I haven't played yet. I love spooky. Happy Easter all.

Just to clarify -- this is the 5th Dream Chronicles. There were no CE's until the 4th one -- Book of Air.

Like everyone else, I am waiting to hear some comments from those who buy and finish this version. (At least I will try to wait )

Happy holiday!

This is actually the 5th in the series and someone said on yesterdays forum that it was cited as the “final” on another website, which would be a great pity.

I already have:
Dream Chronicles
Dream Chronicles 2: The Eternal Maze
Dream Chronicles - The Chosen Child
Dream Chronicles - Book of Air


I bought Book of Air first and loved the game so much I bought the other three immediately. I loved them all. Strangely enough they are all small games, with Book of Air being the largest at 102mb, the others are between 22mb and 57mb.

My download just completed, gotta go, talk again later.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Hi Sinshack,
I'm a bit confused about the way you described the series. Maybe I'm missing something (like a few games).... but I recall The Book of Air as the first Dream Chronicles CE and "Book of Air" was the first in the second series of Dream Chronicles.
The first set consisted of:
1.Dream Chronicles
2. Dream Chronicles 2 "The Eternal Maze"
3. Dream Chronicles 3 " The Chosen Child"
The next series started with:
1,"The Book of Air" CE and SE
and now:
2. "The Book of Water" CE

I don't claim to be an expert or criticizing what you wrote. I'm just confused.......as usual. Could you please let me know? Or anyone else, for that matter. Thanks

Edit: Looks like a couple of other members noticed the same thing while I was writing this. . Thanks to all for clarifying.

Thanks, shorenuf, orijojo, and LapTopDancerr! I lost count, I guess. It was Book of Air that disappointed me - the game itself was very good, but like others have commented, it was far too short to be CE, especially the bonus content.

Happy Easter everyone! I've been waiting for this one! Did about 30 minutes of the Demo, will go back to be sure that everything picks up where it should. If it does, this is an absolute buy for me.

Shouldn't we have some of the previous CE's released as SE's before a new Collector's Edition comes out?

I played for 25 minutes and I found the game very dark. I am also disappointed with the screen. It's little with a framework. I play the next 35 min. but I don't know if I buy this game as CE.

Good game! I enjoyed it a lot. And it was nice to see story continuity in the form of settings from earlier games.

Beautiful graphics, the usual Dream Chronicles music which is pleasant...however...this is hand holding to the nth degree. The main character has a nice voice but all the constant talking and telling you all the who what where and when just is not for me. For those fishies who like the game....enjoy Happy Easter to All

Okay, so I couldn't resist trying the demo. I played the opening scenes, which weren't too hard, but then I hit the [spoiler alert!] "connect the pipe"/"connect the electorode" puzzle and spent half an hour without resolution. It's late and I'm tired, but I will have to buy it in the morning because I know that I can figure the minigame out!

I agree with the posts so far that some of the Dream Chronicles games are better than others, but I have enjoyed them all, so Happy Easter present to me!

Since "Eternal Maze" I stopped to buy this series. The "dream pieces" worked on my nerves - not only the objects are small, and the screens are dark, I have to gather mini-tiny pieces of "nothing"...

I got my Easter Egg already from ERS's "Spirits". Play it again with great pleasure.

Happy Easter, fishies!

COMMENT ONLY: No review involved!!

Downloading now. Just to make sure it works. Can't wait to hit Lucy's spoiler alert!!
And a CE today really throws a 'spanner' in my Punch Card Logic for buying this month!

I did liked this game, good graphics and enjoyable gameplay, I usually liked games from Playfirst, this game does not disappointing me, better than the Book of Air. I don't think its a buy for me, it does worth SV but not sure about CE!

3.5/5 Stars
