Chapter in this post:
Dreams is a sandbox game for the Sony PlayStation 4 with which you can create your own assets, scenes and entire games. Developed by the “Media Molecule” studio in Great Britain and published by “Sony Interactive Entertainment” in Japan, Dreams has had a long development phase. First presented as a project in 2015, there was a lot of attention in 2019 in the first alpha and beta releases. The game was officially released on February 14, 2020. What is behind it and why the title offers so much potential for the PS4, I have summarized that for you in the following.
Dreams, which translates as "dreams", helps you to realize them on the PlayStation 4 and on your television at home. But in addition to bringing your own dreams to life, you can also immerse yourself in the creations of other dreamers, i.e. in the works of other players. You can create almost limitless worlds and characters, create puzzles, build and overcome obstacles, create NPCs to support the story, provide items and weapons as equipment and, and, and. Whatever you want to create, Dreams for PS4 can do it. All you need is the right assets from the appropriate library or your own creations. There are a few tutorials on how to create them (see below).
In Dreams on the PlayStation 4 you can, similar to "Blender" or other 3D programs, create different objects, characters, levels and worlds. Everything is based on small grains or flakes, which represent the smallest elements and ultimately form the structures of the world you have created. The created elements can then be colored or covered with textures. By assigning properties, behaviors and effects, the various units can then also be used individually. After a certain training period, you can create entire games or - if you build and set automatically running scenes - your own films on the PS4.
If you want to let out on the PlayStation 4 with Dreams and finally implement your vision of your own game or computer-animated film, then you can officially buy the finished version of the program since 14.02.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX. On the appropriate Amazon product page you will find further information as well as screenshots and customer ratings. The game currently has 4,1 out of 5 stars, which is quite good.
As already mentioned at the beginning, the Dreams community has not only grown since the middle of last month, but has been growing for months and years with the alpha and beta versions that were released for testing in advance. Some impressive games and scenes have already been created in these. The individual creations have been and are repeatedly discussed, looked through and alluded to, for example on the Internet television channel “Rocketbeans TV”, or RBTV for short. A current video from last week shows a wide variety of creations by hobby game developers as well as replicas of existing games in just under three hours.
If the theoretical explanations above did not give you a good picture of Dreams on the PS4, maybe a few tutorials or summaries will help you. How you can model in the software, what the game creation looks like and how much time it takes, you can do that on the YouTube channel, for example Elca Gaming see. Below are two videos of the channel, one with the Basics of modeling and one with a summary of the Creation of a game in 200+ hours. Further (German) tutorials are available on the channel as well as on other YouTube channels.
