1995 German graphic text adventure game based on characters from the Neil Gaiman comic book.  This very large game (two full discs!) is easily of commercial quality. In this video I look at the setup menu, the readme file, the background file and finally the intro.

Setup - 0:06 to 0:17
Readme/instruction file - 0:38 to 3:05
Explain (background) file - 3:36 to 6:50
Sandman Intro - 7:33 to 16:04
