Yes I usually have dreams while I sleep

And this may be the opportunity for LoD Remake to arise...
Plus Sony could make it into an engine for indies to make and sell their games on PS.

The game is mindblowing, people should sign up for the beta (signups start jan 4th) before they brush it off

Do I need to be on the MM newsletter thing?

I honestly have no clue what Dreams really is. From reading in this thread it seems to be a dev kit with integrated asset store and not a game. Can someone describe the main difference between Dreams and the Unity engine/ Unreal engine or the creation kit for Skyrim?

You know how many ppl wanted LBP to get a 3D version? Or how ppl want a new Super Mario Maker but with the ability o make levels based on N64 Mario?

That is what it is, just without it being a platformer. It is all genres.

That's the long term plan, yes. Of course it may change for legal reasons but I know MM are on it, especially Marcos. MM also plan on making their next game with Dreams.

I would love to have the creativity power and time to make my book trilogy into games.

I've only responded to that because it's 'on the cards'. The thing is, Dreams will depend on good assets to be made available for other creators, so talk of monetisation of games or blocking people from using assets because of long term plans, would be detrimental to Dreams in the short term. Give it a couple of years and then perhaps this subject can be fully explored.

I posted a tweet to Marcos about my theory on the DLC problem. He normally responds in text but this time he just liked it. The theory was that MM would make Indie games with Dreams and sell them on PSN but if you have Dreams, many of the assets/music/logic would be made available to the community. Remember that assets are no longer outside of the potential of Dreams. Everything in Dream is made in Dreams. That means the DLC revenue MM got from LBP with things like new powers, costumes, stickers, gadgets etc, are no longer a viable solution for a sustainable revenue stream. That's because the community can replicate them perfectly within Dreams. 

My guess would be:

Patches: Free
PSN games: £15 - £25 (assets made available to Dreams owners)
Imp costumes (possibly)
PSN games made by the community: In to years (Sony taking a cut)

What's your user name on Dreams? And can you search for my stuff just to check if I've set it up right? I haven't published anything of my own but I have put together a small collection of sculpts and a small collection of games. On my end it says 'your games' or 'your sculpts' and I really don't want to be taking credit for other people's work.

Things can always be copyrighted or copied. The idea that could work is making things easier for the user and also tutelage. Like MM to oversee and remove content that is copy of others, standalone Indies being licensed and the like.
