After watching the YouTube videos, you can finally try Dreams at home. In an announcement post on the PlayStation Blog, the demo was described as “a rotating playlist of some of our favorite creations in Dreams”. Specifically, you can jump into The Ornithologist’s Private Collection, Ruckus, Cubric, Player Piano Player, Art Therapy, and Great Job Human! They also mention that players can give the first 20 minutes of Art’s Dream a try. You can also add new games from the Play Later queue from the companion site here. You just won’t be able to have them go to Dream Surfing inside the game unless you buy the full version.
Let’s be fair, any demo is designed to get you to buy. Dreams is unique in that the players create some very compelling commercials. Buying the game also gives you access to tutorials that can put you on the path to building that creative vision that’s stuck in your head. It won’t be easy, but you already knew that.
The results from Dreams have been wild, and the tools seem incredibly robust for anyone who’s willing to spend the time. Given the current situation, you might be looking for a creative outlet, and you might have some free time on your hands. I’m not saying Dreams is the perfect solution, but the demo costs nothing and might be just what the doctor ordered.
Check out the trailer for a taste of the games, and get to creating. Or, in my case, get to creating, so I can play your amazing games.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
