Let's Play: Dream of Five

Despite it not being finished, I thought it would be a fun time to look back at one of the community’s most beloved unfinished projects: Dream of Five

This will probably be up on weekends exclusively (Fri/Sat/Sun) and the rest of the week I’ll dedicate to another Let’s Play

Great pick. Dream of Five, despite its flaws and questionable design choices, is gorgeous, has excellent dialogue overall, and was a memorable experience. One of the best looking hacks out there, if not the best.

A route or B route though??

B route has a boat map but 8Ax is a wild ride. I’m torn.

I kind of felt like the dialogue was unnecessarily flowery and lol @ the enemies giving like 13 EXP per kill because they couldn’t figure out how to get rid of the ENM EXP bonus

Still, it was a fun time while it lasted

I get what you mean. I think the floweryness adds to the charm, most of the characters have a distinct voice imo.

Arcus’ monologue in the journal is prob one of the best written pieces I’ve seen in a romhack.

Enemies giving no exp was weak though lol

Something else to enjoy. Keep up the good work and stuff but this hack was a fun play all those years ago.

it doesnt look as good as i remember it visually speaking. Still, quite the benchmark for fe hacking graphically for a while there.

Chester, more like Bester. Forgot about them ambush spawns too, man it sure has been a while. So many design choices in this that I wouldn’t do nowadays but I respect the moxie today.

He’s just happy to be a part of the Rankin’ File.

The most fatal sound you’ll ever hear in this line of work - the dreaded hacking screech. :skull_and_crossbones:

Ask long as you have fun complaining that is all that matters.

oh right, I forgot I did this edit

might do another that shrinks the map but I decided I might as well make a modification since I complained about the one-tile chokepoints so much :B
