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

The three episodes of this Adventure Game take the player inside the mind of the 10-year-old main character, Tyler Norris, whose inability to cope with the recent death of his father has brought something evil to life in the depths 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.
