Dreams II - The Demoscene Archive Volume 2
Written by Darkness
"Dreams 2 - The demoscene archive volume 2" is a CD-ROM made BY the scene FOR the scene. This dual CD includes a selection of all the best scene productions from June 1996 to July 1998 and is a sequel to "Dreams" which was released July 1996. The idea behind this collection was to make a real scene archive which would include a selection of the best scene productions, regardless of when or where they have been released.
Dreams 2 is not another of those high profit CD-ROM. Our ambitions were to make a high quality cdrom made FOR THE SCENE and BY THE SCENE available at a low prize.

I would like to thank the scene for the immense support I had during the production of this second CD.
