If you're running 64-bit versions of Windows [[note]]this is most likely true if you bought your PC preinstalled with Windows 8 or later, although certain [=PCs=] from the Windows 7 era also came preinstalled with 64-bit Windows 7. 64-bit Vista and XP, however, are extremely rare and usually only appears on built-to-order systems where the owner specifically requested for said OS[[/note]], you won't be able to run it due to Microsoft removing support for 16-bit software. The good news is that for those running the more recent versions of Windows (or Linux, Mac OS, etc.) is that the game works just great under Windows 3.1 running under ''{{DOSBox}}''. Other alternatives include virtualizing a Windows 95 PC inside a compatible emulator like [=VirtualBox=], [=VMWare=] or [=VirtualPC =]if your PC is beefy enough.

* FridgeLogic: The game centers around a magic key that turns any door into a portal to the user's psychological landscape. Said key was created by Native Americans, who aren't known for having doors or locks to use it in.



* NightmareFuel: Despite the cartoony look, these games are not for kids...

* CerebusSyndrome: The game takes on a distinctly darker tone after Part 2. In fact, the final instalment takes place in spooky forests and cemeteries full of bones and blood. The earlier goofiness is quite forgotten.

Added DiffLines:

Developed for Windows 3.1 running with 16 colours, and written in Visual Basic 1.0, Dare To Dream was one of EpicMegagames' first games released for Windows.

The three episodes of this AdventureGame take the player inside the mind of the 10-year-old main character, Tyler Norris, who is being hunted by a literal demon of his troubled psyche.

Of course, this results in a rather surreal style for the game as a whole (well, as surreal as you can get with a fixed 16-colour palette) and many of the puzzles are counter-intuitive. On the up side, there's no way to die or make the game {{Unwinnable}}. Forget an item? Just go back and get it.

If you're running version 5.2 or later of Windows, you won't be able to run it due to Microsoft removing support for 16-bit software. The good news is that for those running the more recent versions of Windows (or Linux, Mac OS, etc.) is that the game works just great under Windows 3.1 running under ''{{DOSBox}}''.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Clicking on the traffic pylons found in the street gives this description: "These cones are -nothing- compared to the ones in the window..."
* GuideDangIt / SolveTheSoupCans: Using a fish to open a locked door is certainly not obvious.
