Fountain of Dreams is a 1990 computer role-playing game. Published by Electronic Arts, it was originally intended as a follow-up to the popular computer role-playing game Wasteland. Neither Interplay nor any of the team that created Wasteland worked on Fountain of Dreams, and at some point Electronic Arts dropped all claims that the game had any connection to Wasteland, much to the relief of the employees of Interplay at the time.


OverviewEdit

Fountain of Dreams is set in post-nuclear-war Florida, literally separated from the continental United States of America by heavy bombing. Life on the island of Florida is constantly threatened by the threat of mutation (due to residual radiation) and encounters with local ruffians known as the Killer Clowns, as well as three organized crime factions: the DeSoto Family, the Obeah Orders, and the Bahia Mafia. The player controls a small band of adventurers who set out to find the purifying waters of the legendary "Fountain of Dreams" to stop the spread of mutation.

Game descriptionEdit

Fountain of Dreams uses the same game engine as Wasteland but the interface is not nearly as intuitive. To save characters during the beginning, for example, the user must press escape. There are a few differences between this game and the original Wasteland. The starting party consists of only three characters and skills cannot be chosen. Instead each new character chooses one of five classes 1) Survivalist, 2) Vigilante, 3) Medic, 4) Hood, and 5) Mechanic. These classes come with a set of skills already selected but the character's attributes are still customizable. A new gameplay mechanic introduced in this game is the threat of mutation. After encountering and fighting mutants there is a chance for members of the player's party to start to become a mutant themselves. Luckily there are doctors in the game that can operate on affected party members and rum has the ability to stave off the effects of mutation. The game is also famous for being punishing to players just starting out, new adventuring parties should save often and run at the sight of any Killer Clowns.

Game WorldEdit

The game takes place in and around the Miami area and there are a few locations for the player party to explore.

The Florida wastes are dangerous so adventuring groups should take a look at our Fountain of Dreams weapons page.
