Having played it I found the animations really let it down. Animations on interactive characters are really tricky, but I still wish creators would spend more time. There were quite a lot of improvements around procedural animation in the full release
It’s only a demo so it’s possible there might be some improvements in the full release, playing it I felt was really smooth but in need of a little refinement. I was most impressed with the boss with the character model becoming more damaged through the fight.

Well ... All aboard I suppose?

Picked up a digital copy because I can't seem to get this game out of my head. I'm highly unlikely to ever create anything worth publishing. But I'm interested in tapping into the stream of random / bonkers user content. And supporting an obvious labour of love / industry turning point. And the eventual prospect of 3D modelling in VR, which can't be added soon enough.

take something, tweak one thing. Then tweak another. Then build your own thing and tweak it. Before you know it you'll be making your own magnum opus :)

Looks ok but tbh, nothing what I would want to play.

When it comes to action combat, I am very curious about this project.

Does anyone know if that's already playable ?
This is looking really solid, thanks for the heads up. Moving from outside to within the cave was really nice and the art design in general is on point.

To anyone that thinks creating is not for them, I recommend to try the first Art tutorial (it's for beginners), once you do that one you'll feel that anything is possible lol.

A Little place in Outer Space is now remixable.

its the level where you traverse around on planets like mario galaxy.
so now we see how he made the player stick to planet as it moved around a sphere

So my normal gaming routine is to slowly, methodically, work my way through my massive backlog, but because of Dreams and my obsession with creating in it, for the first time I felt this sense of...maybe just...screw the backlog? Like just outright dismiss it forever. Ha. I'm honestly just struggling to imagine when I'll ever actually get back to the backlog with the Dreams project I have going, and the ideas I have for my next couple and the excitement I have to get to them.

Maybe I've finally found my forever game...

First thing I played was the Fallout 4 Tutorial - could not invert Y (if you can I am dumb for not seeing it) - so killing that Mirelurk was very very messy. Next game I tried had the option to Invert Y so I assume it has to be programmed in by the Creator? Looking forward to jumping back in and see some cool shit.

Massive shout-out to GOGOSCOPE who's putting out some clean as fuck architecture builds. He's recreated the house from Jacque Tati's Mon Oncle, the Titanic, South Park, and my personal favorite: the Powerpuff Girls' house, complete with open-world Townsville and explorable City Hall.


Follow and like him!

I skipped through one of the tutorials for the assets, but now I still can’t access them even though the tutorial page says completed? Are you supposed to publish at the end? Because it won’t allow me to publish the dream ... should I reset?

Finished "Super Great Job Human!" and wow... that was really lovely :)

Congrats !
Mr Van - you’ve done a few complete games so far (Cubric still my fave). Can you describe how the progression worked? Did later games come easier - eg game framework was more copy/paste and you could work more on the core game? Do you fine yourself reworking existing logic or starting from scratch as you learned things during the previous game to speed things up?

Amenjo1's "Organica" series are stunning trippy visualizations that happen to pop like crazy on an OLED ;)


I've also put together a collection of my favorite "screensaver" Dreams, including the above.

The connectivity with indreams.me is such a boon to the game. Love seeing recommendations like the above and popping them into my play later pile for when I settle down in the evening.

the notification systems might be borked. i know that it wouldn't notify creators someone has used their asset. but they know its an issue.

Wooow, this looks great. Going to check this later tonight! Thx for posting. Finding the good stuff isn't always that easy. Sometimes it takes quite some time it seems for great creations to be found by the big masses.

I have posted this a couple of pages ago, but can't say this enough. Check out this Purgatory game.

I was truly amazed. Not because of graphics or because it's a great remake. But just because it's creative, funny and original. And that's exactly what makes Dreams great for me. People with creativity can go wild and it's not only about designing.

Absolutely a small 10 minute experience that will make you smile.

Dunno if people has given it a chance, but the Wind-Up game is a pretty awesome isometric action game:


Lost a good chunk of time yesterday playing it.

Can anyone here help me?

I’ve sent a couple of Dreams I’ve played to a friend but they tell me they cannot find them.

How do they find them?
In the main page, there's a notification icon (upper-left) he can click on it, and the 'shared' notification should be there. If not, then maybe is a bug/issue with people not getting the notification that someone shared a Dream with them?

Is there any form of symmetry while building? Wondering how some of these creations are so well spaced
because its created with grid on and/or precise move.

DS4 helps with these types of things.

EDIT:

for those interested in the avatar game.

the creator is streaming himself making gliding mini game
