A lot of people have probably played the demo of A Dwarvish Mead Dream, which did well in the IF Annual ZZT Excellence Awards and the Hoodian Awards in 1999. Finally, the game is complete and it's a big shiny gem, indeed.
There were two worlds... the dreamworld and reality. One day, long ago, reality attacked dreamworld, slaughtering its peaceful inhabitants. One of the few survivors was Radux the Dwarf, the guardian of the dreamworld. He seeks for help in reality...
You are Glenn, a young Dwarf. One day, you come upon a small tavern. A Dwarf clad in red beckons you. You sit and he offers you a goblet of mead. Then you drift away into a dream... you end up in the dreamworld. It appears that you are a dream, just like Radux. The difference between you and him is that he was born in the dreamworld and you were not. You can freely travel between reality and the dreamworld. This is where the action-packed adveture starts.
A Dwarvish Mead Dream is an RPG with several types of gameplay. A very important part of it, is the dungeon- exploring. Fans of dungeon-games are most likely to love this game, if only for that part. Other parts of the game include a spiffy battle-engine, other cool engines and normal RPG-ish parts.
ADMD features very good graphics, as we pretty much have come to expect from coolzx, the winner of the Summer 2000 IF24AHOZ contest. It's the combination of kick-ass graphics and a wide variety in gameplay what makes this game a shining pearl and very, very fine experience.
In my opinion, A Dwarvish Mead Dream is coolzx's best game released so far. And yes, he has released quite a lot of 'em (and good ones, too :D). I'd like to compliment coolzx on this great game. For those you who haven't tried it out yet, I recommend you to do so.
