I think it's gonna be reckoned as game-masterpiece...but commercial flop
Well see. Im buying
I'll be buying this game day one
I'm just waiting for campaign mode review and most likely buying for that and then super excited to see what people will be creating... and maybe I'll give it a go myself :D!
Yeah... I mean little big planet did some good to decent numbers... but there was something for players to attach to and the campaigns were there for those not interested in building.. Will be interesting to watch the reception of this game. The worlds that can be built though.. far surpass what little big planet could do... both in atmosphere and capabilities... so I would expect some amazing games to come from some talented people.
But Dreams HAS A CAMPAIGN. It absolutely has a developer made campaign just like LBP. It has a campaign and a mascot, the Imp. The creation and the engine in Dreams absolutely destroys anything in LBP. This is creation on an unprecedented level for a console game. As long as Sony/Mm can market this game appropriately and emphasis exactly what it is in terms that casuals can understand i don't see why it wouldn't be successful? They must emphasis that it has a legit campaign. Market the Imp and some other key mascots ala Sackboy.
@Iamtyler From the preview I read, it did not state as such... It has demo levels and then you will be dependent on player created levels. Not saying this argumentatively, just from the game informer preview I read.
They've talked about the campaign a lot already. It's actually like 3 different games that are interwoven. Basically there's a noir type game where you play and old man named Art who has strange dreams. In those dreams you've got a puzzle platformer and a beat em up. They're also creating a bunch of other games with it that aren't part of the campaign that they're putting out as a way of kickstarting the community. And there's more than just building, there's also a fully featured digital audio workshop like FL Studios except even more complex and intuitive in many ways. Honestly, I think you just gotta give creation a shot if you think it's not for you. It makes it so easy to create that creation is actually fun because it's just so easy to change things and make it exactly how you want it. Most games that have creation feature tedious tools. This is painting and sculpting, not placing things on a grid. And it's so quick to create that it allows you to sketch sculptures and entire characters within moments and this promotes creativity and experimentation since there's no fear of wasting your time on a piece that'll take hours since you'll be done quickly.
LittleBigPlanet and Minecraft didn’t flop. Why would their illegitimate love child?
It will all depend on how the game is marketed. Sony really needs to hit it home that you do not have to create to enjoy countless hours of entertainment. It also wouldn't hurt if they had a mascot like LBP did with SackBoy
I have a feeling you're right, but also that word of mouth will carry this game. Streamers and Youtubers will get kids to want to try it too.
Word of mouth and twitch is going to make this game blow up, I just know it. They have a 10 year plan and everything, they're that confident in it and it's clear to see why.
is this coming soon too? Too many games right now, my wallet isn't ready!
This year.Just saw a trailer with 2018 at the end
This appeals to a very specific type of gamer. I hope it does well. MS dropped project spark way too quickly. It was quite clever
This is way more than project spark ever was
@SKR3AM Maybe? Watch their latest stream about music and sound. There's nothing else like this on the market. https://youtu.be/E3BPsKb8p6... And the tools are so much more than Project Spark could ever have hoped for. Project Spark gave you pre-made assets only, and you can create with them, but you're left with those basic assets. With this, you create your own assets from scratch or use any of the billions that'll be uploaded when people start creating with it and you can create basically any kind of game.
lol the reason why project spark died is because lbp creation mechanics made project spark look like a turd.
Not maybe. The feature set is far greater. Look it up
Lol, you're a clueless troll. Goodbye
@SKR3AM Media Molecule is way more creative than Project Spark devs.
Project Spark flopped, and is a shadow of LBG. Not even in the same League as MM game.
A specific gamer? You mean like everyone?
What is this? Another PS4 exclusive set to succeed
This game will not flop when u seen people create there own versions of halo silent hill res evils and half life. It's all possible and u will see mini dream development teams
Dreams maybe very well revolutionize games to an extent. It might actually spawn some jr development teams or start the career of some future developers. People will create better games within Dreams than what Mm did themselves with the campaign. The tools are already quite robust in Dreams, and if Mm continues to update the toolset (for free) like i believe they will, the sky is the limit for this game. I can see new combat animations, new assets, new tools, new audio mixing capabilities ect being added for free after launch. Gamers are sleeping on this game. You will literally be able to create the original 2D Mario Bros and a facsimile of Super Mario Odyssey. You can even create Mario Kart. Anything. The user created content might actually be full games. People could theoretically publish games through Dreams and potentially get noticed.
This. So much this. I can see people just streaming themselves making music on twitch. You can even create with I think up to one other person (hopefully more too). Imagine creating music, live, with your friends. And then I'm gonna throw game jams/parties and we're gonna DJ live with it. It'll be awesome.
I like that, "mini dream development team." HalfLife.Dreams, silenthill.dreams etc. Oh the creativity will be outstanding!
I hope this does well, it's a game that deserve to do well being completely different from all the shooter etc. that's released all the time.
Word of mouth is going to get alot of people onboard, twitch and YouTube will do just that. This is why god of war sales are so high because of streamers advertising the game and making more people jump on board then the usual where some people don't even know what games are released.
I hope you are right
You are insane if you think streamers made God of War do those numbers. The marketing for the game did that. It’s probably only a small percentage, like a few hundred thousand in sales, that comes from streamers. You are more likely to see big boost in sales through streamers from small indie games that generally has no marketing, then these big blockbuster games like God of War.
I'll be making P.T Silent Hills, as in the full game that was never released. It will be based of P.T. Since I have already made this hours long adventure in LBP3, it will be a matter of porting it. Obviously it will be massively upgraded and new stuff added.
yeah, where's the beta?
E3's just around the corner. I think we'll find out then.
The previews are showing promise of an amazing game. So theres no need to worry there. What we need to worry about is the marketing. LBP was easily marketed as there was a central character that every one plays as, Sackboy. Dreams does not have that. How do you market a game with no central character?
I worry about the same thing
Dreams has killer app potential on VR. The game is LBP but in a three dimensional space and with infinitely more options. It will likely be amazing on PS4, but to actually be in these spaces in VR could be astonishing.
LBP revolutionized Play,creates and share genre.Now Dreams seems to be taking it up to the next level can't wait 👍
My number one most anticipated game, will definitely pick it up when it supports psvr!
