Dreams is an upcoming title from LittleBigPlanet developers Media Molecule. This highly anticipated title is set to release in beta this year for PlayStation 4 and essentially allows you to create your own spaces in a similar way to Tilt Brush and Oculus’ Quill but with much more depth.
The addition of animations and gameplay mechanics, as well as the ability to create and add sound overlays, are a small part of what’s on offer and it’s all just a click away with Dreams. So you’ll be able to create anything from movies and music videos to playable games and share it with the world. The title even allows you to just stick to creating the basic stuff like rocks and trees for an environment or certain character animations that other people can then use in their own creations.
Sounds like it would be perfect for PSVR right? Well, luckily Media Molecule thought so too because they’ve now confirmed at this year’s Sony E3 conference that Dreams will have PlayStation VR support from the very first day. Meaning we’ll be able to start working on our dreamy virtual creations soon!
Two great pieces of info to come from the studio at the event this year is that the VR support will include both playing and creating content, as well as that the studio is open to creating standalone titles from any great ideas that arise from Dreams. Meaning that smaller indie developers (and even people with little to no developing experience – since it’s not necessary for the title) have a chance to make their creations come to life and then taken further through this platform. Of course, the studio hasn’t outlined exactly how that’s going to work yet, but I’m sure that topic will be expanded on more in the future.

For now, we’re just really thrilled that we’re actually going to see this enchanting title come to life in virtual reality. It’s also a big positive for the PSVR and we will likely see a lot more players adopting the platform because of Dreams. It seems like Sony is definitely trekking down the right path to see their fledgling virtual reality headset become a household name.
