Cyberdreams Interactive Entertainment was a game publisher located in California that specialized in adventure games developed in collaboration with famous names from the fantasy, horror and science fiction genres.

Patrick Ketchum, who had founded Datasoft before, founded the company in 1990. In 1995 an "internal shake-up" took place by which the investors removed management and installed a "turnaround management team" that should accomplish the transition to 3rd party publishing. Ketchum left the company and started a career as photographer. The company went defunct early in 1997.

Cyberdreams' most successful titles were Dark Seed, incorporating the art of H. R. Giger, and I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream, based upon Harlan Ellison's short story of the same name.

Cyberdreams other published titles included CyberRace, a futuristic racing game using the vehicle designs of Syd Mead, Noir: A Shadowy Thriller, a film noir interactive movie directed by Jeff Blyth, and a sequel to Dark Seed.
