I'm watching the latest stream right now, I've always been a few days late with them, this is the third I've seen so far, and honestly... my jaw is on the floor during this one, "Bug Report", "Curiosity" and "Prometheus" are all just... wow! :o

And Prometheus is just a really short demo, but the fact that it looks like the solid foundations for an FPS game in such a short period of time is crazy!

Edit: Watching even more and yeah, just... I don't even have any other reaction than "Wow".

There's a bonus stream tomorrow and then another on Thursday: 5pm GMT.

I just don't enjoy creating my own content or user created content. I have every LBP ever (even got LBP 3 for PS4 after getting it forfPS3) for every consoleand I despised playing user created stuff. I just did it for my daughter. I even skipped Mario Maker.

There just isn't the feeling of joy or accomplishment I get from playing something the "real" developers create. It's like reading fan fiction. Not for me.

I feel like you are completely missing the point of this game. LBP has a functional campaign, sure. The game is designed with a campaign in mind and level editing tools to aid it. Dreams is designed the other way around, as level editing tools (game engine) first and with a campaign second. It is why it is called Dreams, the entire purpose of the game is that ppl make, share and play together. There is no "fan-fiction" and "real" developer creations here. If anything, this viewpoint goes against what the devs want the game to be.

And for what it is worth, some of these "fan-fiction" creations look miles better than the actual campaign MM have made. Like, their campaign is easily some of the most uninteresting things created in Dreams so far.

 

Then I'll let you guys have it. I prefer single player campaigns with a beginning, middle, and end over "tools". The last time I was hyped for a game of this kind was Project Spark on Xbox One (not nearly as ambitious as Dreams, I know). I couldn't even force myself to play the prerequisite time that would allow me access to the Conker's Bad Fur Day "sequel".

Hope the audience it's shooting for has a blast, though. It really looks well made.

Well, Blue Marble Adventure is 45 minutes long and that's been put together in three weeks. It's a solid Indie game with great controls and great gameplay.

Don't give up on the beta codes just yet:

I'm not bothered about not being in the beta anyway, I mean, I'd LOVE to be in it, but I never applied since I've know this is a day one buy since I first saw it, lol. I just wish there wasn't an NDA on the beta so I could see more stuff!

Yeah, I prefer SP games with start, middle, end too. That doesn't automatically disqualify Dreams. We don't know what ppl will make, but they could easily make smaller narrative games within the framework of the engine itself, that abides by a start, middle, end mentality.

But yeah, if you only qualify this based on what the dev itself makes then it is not what you are going to want it to be. There is a campaign, but it is short, so just wait for the game to be cheaper if you really want to try it out.



Got a code and am in. The creating is pretty daunting stuff...

Yeah. But after the tutorials, you should be pretty apt at navigating. The rest comes automatically if you give it a few hours. 



Just another reminder that Kareem is doing a MOVE special stream at 5pm GMT.

And don't forget, there's another stream on Thursday when John will be showing what he's been working on.
