Dreams PS4

As someone who's interest in gaming is becoming more and more sporadic than when I was younger, it's rare for me to take great interest in the latest releases, however I think this game could be quite revolutionary in how it is going to make game creation an accessible art form. It will provide an almost endless possibility to the types of games and virtual worlds people can create, potentially shaping the future of gaming for the better.

Here are some early creations being made already. Some of them are really beautiful.

I'm glad to see other people talk about this latest offering from Sony. Media Molecule creators of LBP, gave not only a great fun family game, but also a portal to explore our imagination and creativity.

I had a great time building worlds, and I was amazed at how much could be achieved, with a little imagination and thought,

So with this in mind I have been following Media Molecule and Dreams with interest. It has obviously been a labour of love, as it has taken pretty much the entire PS4 generation to finally release Dreams even if is still in early access form.

By all accounts like Red Bull, it gives your imagination and creativity wings, taking not just game creation, but an opportunity to explore a whole host of ideas.

I am tied up at the moment with other things, but with Dreams you get exactly what it says on the tin. I will be checking it out soon hopefully.

Someone has made remade the PT demo in Dreams, impressive stuff, and goes a little way to showing the power at your disposal

Sod it, just bought it and started to download, No idea when I'll be able to put some proper time into it. But I can begin the exploration.

OK, some initial thoughts, first of all, if you think you are just jumping in and creating stuff, that ain't happening.

Secondly using the move controller, is initially both annoying and confusing. Working your way through the tutorials, (I'm on the fourth one) controls do start to make sense, but I would hardly call them second nature, I'm managing to move blocks around and placing them to something like where I want them. but practice definitely required.

Early days, lots to learn, practice makes perfect

Ok just finished my third not fourth tutorial, and I have to say I am starting to get the hang of things, starting, not yet accomplished.

But I have to say I have just created a set of stairs very easily, this has potential

Ok fourth tutorial needs some work, ballsed it right up. Having difficulty placing things exactly where I want them. will go back to it tomorrow.

I'm not sure anyone is interested in my personal commentary of this game, but it might give you an idea about the learning curve.

Like any art form, it’s going to require a lot of practice and patience. Maybe more than I would be willing to put in, but give it a year or two after it’s full release and I can see there being a plethora of creations to play.

To be honest sideshow, I think some people will be creating some impressive stuff a lot sooner than that.

I am just messing around with the basics, but I can already see the scope of the power being put into peoples hands.

The stairs I created was simple enough, but it was what you could do with them that shows this is something special. adding steps, twisting them, up down and around, allowed me to create very quickly some unique forms.

I have barely scratched the surface, I was just messing about, I will work through the tutorials properly when I have more time.

The creative types will love it
