  • News Media Molecule's Making Some Mental Things in Dreams

    Stop! Hammer time

    Dreams is really going to come to life when fans finally get their hands on it, but until then it’s hard not to be impressed with what Media Molecule’s doing with it. This new gameplay video from Game Informer showcases several creations that the Guildford-based studio’s working on in its own time, and some of them are...

  • News Of Course You Can Make First-Person Games in Dreams

    Call of duty

    Dreams is essentially LittleBigPlanet on steroids, so of course you can make first-person games. As part of a stream hosted by Media Molecule earlier this week, the studio showed off a couple of prototypes that it’s been working on: a Mirror’s Edge-esque platformer and a traditional shooter – both from the first-person...

  • News Why Is Dreams Taking So Long to Release?

    Media Molecule explains

    Venture into any Dreams discussion and you’re going to find someone complaining about the time that the title’s taken to release. Media Molecule teased the project all the way back when the PlayStation 4 was revealed, and then formally announced it a few years later. But it’s still not out, and despite its very obvious...

  • News Media Molecule Shows How a Campaign Level Is Created in Dreams

    And then fiddles with it

    Dreams has a short single player campaign which is designed to showcase what's possible, and in this new Game Informer gameplay video, co-founder Mark Healy shows a playthrough of the stage (which is great – we played it a couple of weeks ago) and then switches to edit mode to prove that it was all made in-game. The...

  • News Dreams Will Run at 60 Frames-Per-Second Unless You Break It

    Remember to show some restraint

    Dreams will run at 60 frames-per-second, but you will be able to make the engine chug if you fail to optimise your levels. Speaking as part of a Game Informer interview, Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans explained that players who really push the level editor may find that their creations run as low as 30...

  • News Dreams Will Support PSVR at Launch, Online Multiplayer Coming Later

    Virtual insanity

    Dreams will allow you to create and play virtual reality levels at launch, as Media Molecule has committed to day one PlayStation VR support. Originally, the British developer said that it would be adding support for Sony’s headset post-launch; reports then suggested that it had changed its stance, and the functionality would be...

  • News Media Molecule Doesn't Crunch, Reckons It's Too 90s

    Work hard, play hard

    We’ve been made to wait for Media Molecule’s Dreams, which the gaming community revels in pointing out at any given opportunity. To be fair to the Guildford-based developer, there’s no blueprint for what it’s doing here: its PlayStation 4 exclusive is truly unique, and while its roots can be traced back to...

  • News Dreams Beta Will Still Launch This Year, All Creations Will Carry Across

    Sleep tight

    Media Molecule’s been saying that Dreams’ beta will launch “this year” since, like, 2015 – but it seems certain we’ll all be creating before the end of 2018. Speaking as part of a rapid fire question session with Game Informer magazine, co-founder Alex Evans said that the beta’s due at some point this year, so we suppose...

  • News Dreams Magazine Cover Was, Er, Made in Dreams

    Of course it was

    Game Informer is running a new cover story on PlayStation 4 exclusive Dreams, and many jokingly asked whether the magazine art had been made in the game itself. The answer, perhaps incredibly, is yes. Here’s the proof: For those of you who don’t know, the Media Molecule developed title is an evolution of LittleBigPlanet,...

    Dreaming big

  • News Media Molecule Wants to Unlock Your Creativity with Dreams

    Dreams can come true

    Whenever we post something about Dreams, there’s always a comment from someone who says they haven’t got a creative bone in their body. Media Molecule doesn’t believe that: the reason it’s made this game is because it wants everyone to be able to make something. Whether you’re an artist, programmer, musician, or you...


  • News Media Molecule Builds Dreamon's Souls in an Hour

    Dreams continues to drop jaws

    Dreams never ceases to amaze, it really doesn’t. Media Molecule’s been promoting a ‘Gothic Novel Game Jam’ for a few days now, and it went live on Twitch earlier today to essentially construct a Demon’s Souls-inspired game stage in around about an hour. It created a lot of the assets prior to going live in the...

  • News Media Molecule's Dreams Is Absurdly Innovative


    The PlayStation Blog crew may be paid to promote Sony products, but you can hear in this Dreams-themed episode of PS Underground that they’re genuinely flabbergasted by what’s possible in Media Molecule’s upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive.

  • News Delicious Dreams Screens Showcase PS4 Exclusive's Creative Potential

    The war against reality

    Dreams allows you to make anything you can, well, dream of.

  • Feature Dreams, the PS4 Exclusive Everyone's Sleeping On

    A Dream come true

    There’s real excitement among the PlayStation fanbase following God of War’s outstanding reviews. Much like with Horizon: Zero Dawn last year, Sony’s first-party has done it again – except this time Kratos has actually exceeded all expectations and landed the highest-rated PlayStation 4 exclusive to date. And it’s just...



  • News Dreams' Story Mode Looks (And Sounds) Like Vintage Media Molecule

    A work of Art

    Another exciting thing about Dreams is that it will play host to a brand new Media Molecule campaign, the kind of treat we only get a couple of times a generation. The plot for Dreams sounds a little darker than anything it's done before, centring upon a down-and-out individual named Art who’s been living rough in a cello case. The...

  • News Dreams Is Going to Be a Real Awards Magnet

    Take a look at creation in action

    One thing that PSX 2017 proved this weekend is that Media Molecule may want to invest in a new trophy cabinet. Dreams is clearly going to be showered in awards. Like for real, this game is going to break new grounds, so maybe get used to the idea now. The thing is it’s just kinda… Mental? Take these two new...

  • PSX 2017 Dreams Has a Full Digital Audio Workstation

    Just another Reason to be excited

    Everything you see and hear in Dreams is made in Dreams, including the music.

This means that you can, essentially, create full songs within the software to...

  • PSX 2017 Dreams Single Player Screens Reveal Staggering Visuals

    We must be Dreaming

    Dreams has a three-pronged single player campaign which you can read about through here. The most impressive thing about it, though, is that it’s been built entirely within, well, Dreams. Confused? Okay, let’s try again: Dreams is essentially an imagination simulation where you’re given the freedom to design, animate,...

  • News Dreams' Three-Pronged Single Player Campaign Teased

    Media Molecule's latest reveals unrivalled ambition

    Dreams, for those worried, will have a single player campaign.

The first of the stories involves a fox and a bear attempting to...

  • News Media Molecule Will Light Up PSX 2017 with Dreams Re-Reveal

    Sleep easy

    It’s been a long time since we learned anything about Dreams, the madcap imagination simulation from Media Molecule.

While it sounds like Sony will have a very low-key presentation instead of a press conference...

  • News Media Molecule's Dreams Is Not Dead Despite Paris No-Show

    Don't stop believin'

    If there was one game we would have bet our selection of imported Oreos on appearing at Paris Games Week on Monday, it was Dreams. But once again, Media Molecule’s creation simulation was very much missing in action. So what the heck is going on with the developer’s barmy imagination engine? Well, the first thing to note is...


  • E3 2017 Where the Hell Is Media Molecule's Dreams?

    Development nightmare?

    Hey, do you remember Dreams? The ambitious Media Molecule developed creation engine was everywhere, until it wasn’t.

  • News PS4 Exclusive Dreams Remains an Incredibly Attractive Enigma

  • News PS4 Exclusives Detroit, Dreams May Not Make 2017 After All

    Keep dreamin'

    Remember that fun little montage PlayStation Europe made to promote upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusives? It got people in a right tiswas over the New Year break. In addition to a couple of incorrect 'Console Exclusive' tags – innocent mistakes, we're sure – many picked up on the fact that both Detroit: Become Human and


  • News Media Molecule's Dreams Beta Will Sleep Until 2017

    Fully rested

    In news that will surprise no one, Media Molecule's Dreams will not receive a beta before the end of the year. The game was set to get a sampler around this time, but the Guildford-based outfit has practically shut up shop over the past few months; it wasn't in attendance at E3 2016 or PSX 2016 earlier in the year. That's because,...


  • E3 2016 PS4 Exclusive Dreams Sleeping on This Year's Show


    Media Molecule's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive was absent at this year's Sony E3 2016 press conference, and that's because Media Molecule's still busy beavering away on the game back in the UK. The team posted a message on Twitter to explain its absence, stating that it's "working its socks off" and is looking forward to "sharing more...


  • News Dreams May Just Be the Most Mind Boggling PS4 Game Yet

  • News PS4 Exclusive Dreams Is Kinda Blowing Our Minds

    Dreamed a dream in time gone by

  • News Dreams Is a Lot More Powerful Than You Think

    Beta to come in 2016

    Dreams captured the attention of many during its Paris Games Week demo (while also horrifying some) due to its huge amount of tools and available customization. Sure, we don't entirely understand what Dreams actually is yet, but what we do know is that it is, in part, one hell of a powerful creative tool, as a recent Wired...

  • Paris Games Week 2015 PS4's Dreams Looks More Like a Nightmare

    And we still don't know what it is

    What is Dreams? In truth, even after a meaty Paris Games Week 2015 demo, we can't tell you. Media Molecule's forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive is so out-there that the developer doesn't appear to know how to show it. The things we do know: you control a customisable imp which can possess sculptures created by...

  • News Watch One of the First Dreams Made on PS4

    Beary good

    The sooner that Media Molecule clears up exactly what Dreams is the better. During a stream earlier this week, the developer shared one of the first ever "dreams" created in the PlayStation 4 exclusive – and it's suitably bonkers. We see a polar bear and its baby walking towards the horizon, where the illuminati happen to be waiting...


  • News The First Fansite for PS4 Exclusive Dreams Is Live

    Day dreamer

    Media Molecule's always had a vibrant community surrounding its games, and it looks like that's set to continue with Dreams, the mysterious PlayStation 4 exclusive that was announced at E3 2015 earlier in the year. We don't even know what the title is yet, but that's not stopped dreambubble.me from arriving on the scene...


  • News Media Molecule Dreaming Up Dreams Beta Trial for PS4

    Expect more details at Paris Games Week

    There's still some confusion over what Dreams actually is. Media Molecule's brand new project was officially announced at E3 2015 and received a mixed response; the Guildford-based developer was intentionally vague about the title, and that's perhaps resulted in some scepticism around the web. However, it...



  • News How Much Would You Pay to Play Shenmue 3?

    Yu Suzuki considers crowdfunding for long overdue sequel

    When asked how we’d invest the winnings from a successful EuroMillions ticket, we often discuss our desire to fund the full production of Shenmue 3. It’ll never happen, of course, but reports coming out of the Monaco Anime and Game Show suggest that series creator Yu Suzuki is at least...
