Encyclopedia > Morpheus (god)

Morpheus ("he who forms, shapes, molds") is the principal Greek god of dreams.

His father was Hypnos, god of sleep. Morpheus had the ability to take any human's form and appeared in dreams as your loved ones. His brothers Icelus, Phobetor and Phantasos were the other Oneiroi. He was mentioned in the Metamorphoses of Ovid and lived on a bed made of ebony in a dark cave decorated with poppy flowers.

The drug morphine derives its name from Morpheus based on its similar dream-inducing power.

Sound, Music, Voice Acting: As Morpheus begins, you are standing on the deck of a frozen ship, and as you turn and look at the blanket of snow that envelops the landscape before you, the eerie sound of the whistling, almost whispering wind sets the tone for the sound effects in the game.
Put simply, Morpheus is a massive game that pulls you into the story, into the dream worlds, and the feeling of accomplishment stays with you long after you've taken the last disk out of the CD drive and placed the box into storage.
