Dreamweb reviewElectronic Games (1995): "DreamWeb is a disturbing mix of elements brought together to form an almost cinematic program that would most likely make one helluva movie. The adult themes and mystery-like ingredients would lend themselves well to the tastes of the modern movie audience. Yet, like many films today, it is appropriately self-rated for ages 14 and up due to 'realistic depictions of violence' and some bedroom goings-on. Also included in the software package is a fairly strong book, 'Diary Of A Mad Man' that purports to give clues to the game - but is more about amplifying the game’s dark mood.
It’s hard not to be impressed with DreamWeb, which weaves a Stephen King-like tale that climaxes in one surprising finale. But it is encumbered by the size of its graphics: the sheer mechanics of unearthing clues so tiny that they threaten to cause a permanent squint are less a dream than a nightmare".
The original game came packed with a booklet named Diary of a Mad man, written by Stephen Marley which has a far more layered and atmospheric 'prequel' story than the one in the game itself. The diary also supplies more background info on the main character (and served as a copy-protection method).
Dreamweb's musical score, composed by Matthew Seldon, is highly regarded; the DOS-only CD version had an extra audio track.
