Noguchi's Bell is something we've yet to touch on here at Push Square, but it's among the most impressive things made in Dreams so far. It's a 20-minute short film made entirely using Media Molecule's toolset, and you can watch it within the game or via YouTube (above). The team behind it, Cyber Sheep Film, has bigger ideas, though — and it's turned to crowdfunding to make it happen.
Live on Kickstarter right now is a campaign to turn Noguchi's Bell into a 15-part animated series, again created using Dreams and nothing else. The project is the most notable one making use of Media Molecule's beta evaluation programme, which essentially allows creators to monetise their creations outside of the game itself.
The initial goal is $32.5k, which will allow the studio to create episode 2, 'Rings True'. Subsequent stretch goals, if met, will see Cyper Sheep Film realise its full vision and create 15 episodes of cyberpunk samurai action, inspired by anime and classic Japanese movies.
It's really cool to see people taking Dreams that one step further to create something like this. Let's hope the team can meet all its goals, as we're curious to find out how Noguchi's journey continues. Will you be backing Noguchi's Bell on Kickstarter? Tell us in the comments section below.

You’d think that more than a year after release I’d no longer be shocked by the talent and creativity that people display in Dreams, but here I am with my jaw on the floor again. Truly amazing stuff.
Will probably never play the software itself, but Dreams continues to impress in its power and versatility, and big kudos to people who make such ambitious work like this.
Amazing work! Hope they can hit their goals.
Dreams really is an incredible thing isn't it I'm surprised it hasn't been used by SIE as a recruiting tool sooooooooooo many talented people making incredible things on it
The quality of the animation, sound design, and direction is serious next level talent. Very inspiring.
Shows just how versatile Dreams actually is. If you're willing to put in the time.
Of all the daft things Sony has been doing lately nothing is more so than not having dreams as a pack in game with every playstation console.
Finally watched the film, truly impressive stuff for a team of just a few people.
