Dreams isn't just a PlayStation 4 game — it's a platform in which people are building their own games and experiences. There's a lot of user-made content that's absolutely worth your time to find and play, but it isn't always easy to know what to look for.
We've recommended dozens of creations ourselves (and continue to update our in-game Push Square Picks collection, by the way), but Media Molecule is going above and beyond to highlight the best of the best. Not only does it hold weekly livestreams showcasing community talent, it's just introduced The Impsider — a new, official publication all about things made in Dreams and the people behind them.
It's only just got started, so there isn't too much to see yet. However, it looks as though The Impsider will be split into three categories — Dreamview, making recommendations with short reviews of Dreams games; Meet the CoMmunity, where creators will be highlighted; and Impsider Access, which will provide insight on Media Molecule shenanigans.
It's just another way that the studio is picking out quality creations, which is definitely appreciated. For any Dreams aficionados, this will definitely be worth keeping up with. Will you be reading The Impsider? Let us know in the comments section below.

Still waiting for Sony to send me my camera adaptor so I can continue to play Dreams on my PS5. It's been about 4 months since I called the helpline (I don't have PSVR). Waited over a month before they send the confirmation email of my enquiry being looked into, then they wanted me to send all my info over again, that took a month to process, then they said ok cool we'll let you know when it's on it's way which took a month, that email said minimum 2 weeks, a month later still nothing.
The main requirement to receive that free camera adapter is ownership of PSVR.
The PSVR serial number must be included in the request for camera adapter.
Did they change that requirement?
The review for LOCK was a good read, but being able to add it to my Dreams playlist directly from the review is what makes this an outstanding idea. I’ve often thought that those who gripe about it being hard to find good things to play on Dreams are either being willfully ignorant of the indreams.me companion site, or are confusing Dreams with Mario Maker.
Also, there may be a perfectly good reason that not having the camera adaptor is stopping @Ogbert from playing Dreams, but I can’t figure out what it could be. As @SirRealDeal said, I had to provide the serial number for my PSVR in order to receive my camera adaptor.
I'm ready for this to come to PS5 with enhancements. Would really really really really love a create mode where my daughter and I can just go around crafting like Minecraft.
Media Molecule are one of the most interesting developers out there. I’m really curious to see how they progress and work with Dreams, such an interesting experiment.
@Amnesiac @SirRealDeal Dreams doesn’t require PSVR but, for creation especially, relies heavily on the Move controllers which require the camera. Media Molecule issued a statement after many others in the same boat as me complained saying that if you called the helpline rather than going through the website, which does indeed require the PSVR serial number, they would honour it. And when I called they said they would and instead took my PS5 serial number. But it took weeks and I’m still waiting.
The fact they they just excluded a chunk of their audience from the start was pretty crappy. Why not just ask for the PS4 camera and PS5 console serial numbers? Why is PSVR the only situation they bothered to make this for? Even if they just put the adaptor up for sale and I had to pay £30 at least I’d be playing by now.
But as it stands I can’t play Dreams. Trying to create content with the pad is a nightmare.
@Ogbert That is an excellent reason and I feel silly that it didn’t occur to me. I’ve stuck with the DS when dabbling in Dreams, but I’ve heard many people say that the move controllers allow for much greater precision.
I wonder if reaching out to MM directly would help. They’ve posted about getting adaptors sent to non-VR owners on their social media. In any event, I hope it works out and you can get back to Dreams before too long.
Ah. I was unaware. Thanks for that information.
