Chasing Nightmares !
Subject : You could go in others dreams. A man who have nightmares ask for your help. You are now on a new task for the unknown.
The + : good suspense / beautiful cartoon graphics (colorful and dark at the same time!) / objects "really" hidden (the shadow of the objects in the list is different than the real one so it's more difficult) / 2 difficulty modes (affect the recharge thing and the puzzles).
The - : Very short (about 2h for an expert) / small objects to search.
I love that kind of "more adventure game than HO" like Silent Scream : The Dancer or Mystery of Mortlake Mansion. But it's obvious that the length and the graphics will not suit many kinds of players. So play the DEMO its a good thing here ;o)

Fun variation on the HOG genre
Instead of a word list, you get images of objects to find. The objects in the scene might not look exactly like the image, though; they could be sideways or upside down, or in a different state, e.g. an open pair of scissors in the scene that appears as closed in the list.
I really loved the cel-shaded art style, and I also appreciated a lot of the surreal imagery in the dream worlds, especially the use of mannequins or ghostly figures in place of people.
The game was on the short side, but I still felt satisfied at the end, and I did appreciate how the mystery unfolded.

Good but Short
I really liked this game but it was very short. I bought this after I played through the trial and when I replayed it I beat it in about two hours. I liked the story and I was genuinely surprised by the ending.
Overall, if you have a free game to pick out you could do worse than Foreign Dreams, but it's very short for a full priced game.

The graphics were cheesey. Just nothing like i thought it would be at all. I hate it and wish I could get my money back. I stopped playing after 10 minutes because it was so dull. Don't waste your money.
