"Sony is really behind what we’re doing."
As they should. Incredibly talented and innovative bunch of people at Media Molecule
indeed ...they have plethora of very well made games in Dreams made by amateurs ...one of the best is LoCK
That's good to hear
Sure is! It's the game that keeps on giving. When they enabled VR, I couldn't wait to play my faves from the inside! I'm really looking forward to the upcoming multiplayer modes and the inevitable PS5 enhancements.
Thank Jesus. One of the best dev studios Sony has. They really need to keep a strong 1st party lineup if they want to stay on top.
Still can’t fathom why they don’t permit creators to accept donations or charge a buck for their games. Supports their cause and efforts while still allowing free created content
You can donate. Plenty of creators have Patreons.
If they allow you through them, that means they gotta provide receipts and such for people. If someone feels scammed they gotta deal with it etc. If you want to do that, they'd have a Patreon or something noted somewhere where you can I'm sure
I think it's really part of the core ethos of the game. It's play, create, share, not play, create, profit. I get what you're saying and am not arguing against you or anything, I just think that it's part of the point of the game, and MM's vision, that it's all free.
This would establish a business connexion, with regulations, consumer rights and minimum quality standards, in addition to making Sony responsible for all of this. Not good.
Dreams really needs a PC release.
Yeah while I traditionally like PlayStation games to stay on Playstation, I think Dreams really makes sense on PC. I just think that most of the people who could really make Dreams take off typically spend their time on PC.
Yeah I agree I also think we will see my Sony PlayStation exclusives on pc down the line. Its not really a threat to consoles in terms of the difference between the two but there is a massive market Sony are missing out on especially in the creative game side. Feel games like lbp would do wonders on a pc.
I'm sure its on the short list.
Dreams is fantastic but alongside it I’d love MM to develop something with more limitations. I made a lot of stuff in LBP1&2 but Dreams overwhelms me and I’ve basically given up now! I love checking out others work but I really miss the LBP1 style of creation :(
They have multiple game "templates" in Dreams which are basically exactly what you're asking for.
Oh ... maybe I need to have another look then!
Sony bought the studio so they should be investing.
Can Sony please make a new modnation racers. I want a new one so bad
That would be awesome!
I'm with you
Sell me a game, I'll buy your game. Sell me a game engine and teach me how to make games...while a very noble goal, is not something I'm willing to invest in. I can't imagine that it is a very popular genre of games either, which I also imagine is the only reason there is a question as to whether Sony still invests in them or not. Make mainstream games. We've had the artistic romp, it was great and everything, port it how you would like, but now it's time to get to work. The next game needs to be a hit, sales-wise and critically. Sales especially.
That's a relief.
MM.. it's pure genius
What a dumb questions. It's their studio.... So they must do it.
I hope this puts Jim Ryan haters to rest. I remember being told that once he took over that development studios like this would no longer be shut down.
Good show Mm and Sony. Keep the quality coming...
As long as it's not Phil Harrison saying it (Stadia), which funny enough, he played a huge part in acquiring Media Molecule.
Seems like there is some UK bias ever since Jim Ryan took over. Dreams was a great game yet not very profitable. Why does Media Molecule stay open yet Japan Studios doesnt?
There's so much untapped potential in Dreams but it needs to be focused better. Also, it needs to be on PC. Dreams is just the game that would blossom and live forever on PC.
This studio needs to expand. Fund more devs for it sony.
I have bought every game they have developed.
LBP was great and Dreams are really impressive. Even more impressive in VR. Its a pitty, it cant be also on pc (even with ps4 power ties) to broaden Dreams community.
They need to make this compatible with the Rokoko mo-cap suit. Animating by hand is way too painstaking.
Glad to hear that. I thought maybe SIE wasn't in the best of moods when it came to Media Molecule, after the reportedly lacklustre sales of Dreams, what with the game taking a whopping entire generation to be developed. MM really need to come up with DLC to spruce things up and make up for what jarringly short story mode there is, though. Can't believe they thought it was all right to ship it with only a few levels that take 2-3 hours to beat, 12 years after LittleBigPlanet 1, and 9 years after LBP 2. Speaking of which, can't wait for the announcement of LittleBigPlanet 4. But before that, please reopen the LBP servers before the PS3 Store goes away, MM, there's still DLC I've got to check out.
