Dreams has finally hit the market and these days we’re exploring it in depth, because given its rather unusual nature, we wanted to make sure we got it right. In the meantime, however, we’ve decided to share with you some of the more interesting projects we’ve found.
Dreamverse is a place full of life. Launching Early Access almost a year ago has proven to be a winning decision. This means that there is a lot of pretty neat and ready-to-play content that is divided into different categories. Among others, the ones that we recommend you to try are the winners of the IMPY Awards, the best projects of the first year: you absolutely cannot miss them (the IMPYs are marked with a particular image on the homepage of Dreamverse).
Despite that, however, it’s not just material from last year. It’s really amazing how much content has been created during Dreams’ first week of launch. Some projects are somewhat ambitious and are just a first glimpse of what we will see in the future.
Many, of course, have ventured to revive the classics of the past. Someone is doing the remake of Silent Hill using recorded audio from the original game, and someone else has created a parkour system to produce their own reinterpretation of Mirror’s Edge. We especially liked an action RPG called Heroes of Aldrenor, not only because we’re big fans of the genre but also because, while it’s little more than a tech demo, it includes three different classes (Wizard , Thief and Warrior) all fun to play. We could even think of reusing them for our game.
This is precisely the strength of Dreams: more people create something and more elements will be used for others because it is possible to mix, reinterpret and evolve what you see. For this reason, if someone makes up some good characters for an action-RPG or a working parkour system, someone else can take those elements and tweak them as they see fit to bring everything to a new level.
Here are some of the things that made us smile the most.
