Dream Prisoner is a first person adventure computer game written by Dutch programmers Alex van Oostenrijk (programming and graphics) and Alex Lentjes (script) in 1995 and published by their game development company Procurion 9. In the game, the player somehow finds herself imprisoned in a surreal castle where a fancy dinner party is going on. The objective is to escape by solving a number of logical puzzles.

Written in Turbo Pascal, the game has 256-color full-screen graphics, an AdLib music score and digital sound effects. The story is presented in textual form, displayed on top of the graphics and the user interacts with the game through text input which is interpreted by a parser.

The game was reviewed in the Dutch computer magazine PC Active in 1995 and distributed as freeware.
