Dreams has been available to all for just over a year now. Media Molecule's PlayStation 4 create-'em-up has had a great 12 months, and the game is stuffed with interesting, inspiring works made by players. To celebrate the milestone, Sony's just released this energetic trailer, showing off some of the title's achievements in year one.
It's a great reminder of all the wonderful stuff we've seen and played so far. Things like DreamsCom, All Hallows' Dreams, and the Impy Awards have been particular highlights, but the ongoing community jams and Media Molecule's livestreams are a constant joy. We're excited to see what the game brings in its second year.
We recently were able to celebrate not only Dreams' first birthday, but Media Molecule's 15th anniversary. In an interview with Siobhan Reddy, we discuss the studio's history — if you're a fan of the team's work, give it a look.

This is a great trailer.
The next time you or anyone else complains about Sony's first party AAA titles all feel samey, just remember that they make plenty of games like this and nowhere near enough people play them, and that might clue you in.
@Enuo Agreed. That’s always been a hang up of mine when people complain that all of Sony’s games are samey narrative-driven third-person action-stealth games. They obviously have forgotten about Dreams, Concrete Genie, Erica, Knack, Astrobot, Gravity Rush, The Last Guardian, Resogun, Journey, MLB... etc. Like you say, if people really want innovative new IPs and games that push boundaries, then these games need to be supported. Unfortunately most of them just don’t do well commercially. I think Sony still likes having the feather in the cap of the critical acclaim they bring, but still, I wished that gamers would buy these games in addition to their 3rd copy of GTAV.
@Enuo Dreams is great for creating art and mediocre games and I’m a longtime fan that was in multiple betas.
Honestly, the best projects involving gameplay in it are mediocre when it comes to animation and gameplay, somewhat fun though. Much of my enjoyment is from those, “That’s cool.” moments.
This game is absolutely incredible! It's on ps plus discounts right now so definitely give it a go if you can!
I'm a part time sound engineer thanks to Dreams giving me the confidence again. So yeah I think it's amazing. About to release my latest track on Dreams which is good enough for the radio, with a huge build up and then banging house hits and vocals.
I can't believe there are still people who haven't gave it a go. You have no right to complain about games full stop if you haven't paid the paltry entrance fee to the best tool for expression on console.
How was a PS5 version of this game not made and put on every PS5 SSD?
This Game Should Be One Of April's PS Plus Games
I was tempted to buy at $10, but this will probably hit Plus...
Also, a game that relies on user-created content can go dead fast
