I’ll admit, I’m one of those people who looked at Media Molecule’s Dreams and thought it was a nice idea but not much else. I’ve since mucked around with a few player creations and still find myself thinking the game is a nice idea, but there’s not much else too it. I look at what players are making and I long for more realistic-looking graphics. It’s what I’ve been trained to equate quality with, we all have.
In my hours browsing Dreams’ player creations, I’ve not come across anything truly mind-blowing or what I would consider realistic. It’s only thanks to Twitter that I’ve seen the light, and the light looks promising.
Twitter user Iamnotanumber12 has posted a short clip to Twitter of a Dreams creation. Big deal, you say. We’ve seen hundreds already, you say. But not like this, because for a moment I thought somebody was taking the piss by videoing themselves and then sticking the ‘Made in Dreams’ logo on top of the video. Check it out below:

It’s good, right? But will it ever become more than just a fancy demonstration of the user’s skills? That’s another piece for later on, but I’m excited to see what else talented bedroom developers can come up with in Dreams. Me? I can’t even wrap my head around the tutorial, so fair play to anyone who has created anything in Dreams.
