Dreams is all about its community and the things they make. As a result, the quality of experiences does vary pretty wildly. If you're looking to find the cream of the crop, the DreamSurfing menu has done a pretty good job of highlighting the right stuff, but one or two lists were filled with meme levels and other low effort works. However, as noticed by one Reddit user, the page has been given an overhaul, and it's definitely an improvement.
Now, if you browse the DreamSurfing menu, creations in your play later queue and ones that you're following are at the top, meaning the stuff you're most interested in is prioritised. Scroll down, and you'll find similar playlists as seen before, but these are now better, and there are more of them. Newest Dreams is there if you want to check out the very latest stuff, but then you have much more curated lists. What We're Playing is as it says, and then you have genre playlists such as High Score Challenge, Party Games, Test Your Mind, Can You Escape, and much more. These lists feature the better creations first and foremost, ensuring you'll be playing the top creations.
Of course, if you want to search for the newest or strangest creations, the game gives you the tools to do so. If you want to play a game about Shrek helping Wallace find his cheese, search bars and tags are your friends.
Anyway, DreamSurfing looks a lot nicer after this update. There's no patch to download, so no need to worry about that. What are some cool levels you've been playing in Dreams lately? Tell us in the comments section below.
Is there enough decent stuff on dreams to jump into it at this point as someone who probably won't have the time or skill to use it to create?
This looks like a good improvement, great stuff.
Still waiting for the online multiplayer update to play again.
Is anyone playing/using this thing?
I always thought it was a neat idea but I'm rubbish at making things so I would never use it. I can't imagine I'm a unique case. Seems like a tough sell.
Surely this will hit PS Plus soon. It's a great tool set with cool creations and a very small user base. It only makes sense.
Its a fantastic game even if you are unable to create anything. Some of the games on it are fantastic. Ofcourse you'll find some that aren't worth the time but its worth the effort to find the gems.
I have never tried this game and it made me really curious from the beggining.
But the idea that i get is that this is at the same time, the biggest "free" indie game library and tool to create them. Is this correct? Anyone ?
@LowTech Yeah its worth it. One of the few games i paid full price for...i s*ck at making games, but some are almost too good to be true. It's an indie game candy store
Anybody know if the Dreamsurfing part uses any kind of YouTube-style algorithm to tailor what it shows you?
From my occasional dips into Dreams, doesn't look like it and I think it'd benefit.
I feel for Media Molecule because the potential for this to blow up if delivered correctly is huge but at the moment, it's not. I'm sure that's what they're working on now though, more power to them.
@Deadhunter As I think others have said, making DreamSurfing F2P would bring so much positive exposure to what this is capable of.
Think it'd be cool if a selection of the best creations were featured as PS Plus giveaways but I'm not even sure if they'd work without Dreams installed in the background.
@get2sammyb @quintumply Have you guys seen this: https://youtu.be/XkUKpuecEeU?
Worth an article methinks.
