A handful of ambitious creators are aiming to push Dreams to its limit — one group is building a social hub before the creation suite is even capable of online play. While Dreams Central will remain an offline experience to start with, the PlayStation Home-inspired project is looking seriously impressive, and we're excited to check it out when it's done.
For now, though, the game is now a backable project on Kickstarter. On the project page, there's a ton of information about what it aims to be. Essentially, Dreams Central will be a social entertainment hub with a focus on the game's community. In addition to public and private spaces, you'll be able to customise your avatar, play various mini-games, and enjoy a curated selection of Dreams creations. A second phase of the project will see a full theme park introduced too. It all sounds great, and is certainly a forward-thinking creation to build in Media Molecule's title. When online multiplayer eventually arrives, Dreams Central will benefit immensely.
Anyway, the team is currently crowdfunding in order to help see the project through, and should the stretch goals be reached, make it even bigger.
Dreams Central isn't the first creation from Dreams to go the Kickstarter route; this year, Noguchi's Bell raised funds to produce an animated series, while Splatty's Adventure did the same to help produce a full scale 3D platformer.
