Dreams is whatever you want it to be, and Media Molecule is using that potential to forge some amazing collaborations with other brands. The latest of these is a team-up with Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the new reboot of the classic film franchise.
Dreams community members SlurmMacKenzie and byvsen were contacted by the studio to help put together a mini-game based on the movie, and the end result is playable in the game right now. Simply called Ghostbusters Afterlife, this short, arcadey experience is available to play in Dreams from now until 28th February 2022.
The mini-game is a first-person experience in which you try to capture ghosts in a warehouse using the iconic proton beam. You'll have to wrangle with the ghosts to reel them in and trap them, but causing too much damage to the environment will run up a damages bill, which is taken from your score. In the above video, you can watch some of the film's cast and crew play the game, including Finn Wolfhard and director Jason Reitman.
It's a pretty cool marketing piece, but the mini-game itself looks like good fun, so we'll be hopping into Dreams to bust some ghosts. You can read more about the making of this Dreams project over on the PlayStation Blog. What do you think of this? Cross the streams in the comments section below.
