After close to a year in early access, Dreams is finally here and, fittingly, it will let you make all of your dreams come true.
Incredible. It's just sad that Sony isn't really promoting this masterpiece.
They did support the developer for 7+ years while making this game, they know that this type of game is going to need word of mouth more than straight up promotion.
Something tells me they will be promoting it with the new generation.
I really hope so. This is something special.
That's what I'm thinking...I'll bet they'll expand the tools and capabilities of Dreams over time, including stuff that takes advantage of the PS5.
To be honest, I am not quite sure how you market this game, in respect of traditional adverts at least. I think the devs turning up at all the media outlets and appearing with influencers like they are, is probably the best way to promote the game. I have seen the devs on Kinda Funny, Gamespot and Easy Allies this week alone. Game looks interesting, if I can get my backlog under control I'll be excited to try it.
I don't even refer to it as a game anymore. I just call it an experience because of the incredible variety of creations. So you're right, it's not something that's easily understood without experiencing it yourself. However does it really hurt to put an ad on a bus, or a billboard, or even tweet about it more?
They need to go on Fallon and Conan O'Brien and promote it. That would be some great exposure.
I think the content will allow for social media marketing. that will come more after the content is created, so it's hard to market this as a game for now. It's one of those things that has to sell with someone knowing what they're getting, because if you picked this up thinking it's a traditional game, then they may be disappointed. Not everyone is into community content curation.
They probably should be promoting it more, but this is the sort of game that promotes itself. Anytime someone creates something cool or innovative, people will hear about it.
yeah, I think it's a harder to promote game than LBP was originally. Because the base was a 2d sidescroller. It wasn't so hard. But a game where it creates itself can't really be promoted normally. Kinda have to just showcase stages etc every so often and people will hear about it over time. The same idea as how LBP kept selling well over time since. WoM worked well. This I think will really see success at the years end, into next when PS5 is dropping. Likely locking the game to 4K and or 60fps. On top of all the great creations coming in time. Games already pulling great results rating wise and it only gets better
Hell Sony supported and funded the game after MM rebooted it twice, they deserve some credit for seeing it's potential.
I don't think anyone is discrediting Sony for supporting one of their studios. After all this funding, hard work and time, why wouldn't you want to promote this game to the world as much as possible?
Getting a ton of good reviews. If this is truly that good of a dev tool, maybe I should remake the original Tomb Raider games in it as SE won't do it. I don't think I can tackle such a huge task, but maybe I'll try if it's even possible.
Trying my hand with the tools tomorrow night into Sunday, being I'll be off. Got to play a couple hours of created content last night before grabbing some sleep.
What will you be making?
You can collaborate with other people online too. I'm sure you're not the only one who wants to do this.
Yeah, probably I'm not the only one. Let's see if there will be others who wants to do something like this. Having Tomb Raider 1-3 remade is a dream for me.
Ended up not having time this weekend :/ Ideally, I want to just start a couple, smaller random projects. Learn how to handle satisfying shooting mechanics and movement. Then learn modeling and texturing. By the summer I'm hoping to make a competent recreation of the opening to Bioshock. From the crash, to gaining your first plasmid. If I'm happy with it, I'd like to continue, but make my own content from there.
That would be cool. Hope you'll get to do it. Don't give up!
People are loving this game. I think I just might bite.
Awesome score. I'm really enjoying it so far!
Sitting at 91 on meta with 19 positive reviews and zero mixed or negative. All the talk about certain companies leaving others behind and yet here is another amazing exclusive for Playstation. Congrats to MM on this masterpiece and thank you Sony for continuing to give your fan base the best and most amazing games to play. If this is the kinds of games we get at the end of PS4's run I can only imagine what we are going to get for PS5.
Freaking killing it. And well deserved
