Dreams is an upcoming video game for the PlayStation 4, being developed by LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway creators Media Molecule. It follows the same "Play, Create, Share" principle as LittleBigPlanet, but intends to offer a more smooth transition between the modes, almost "merging" them, and giving the player complete control.

After several closed betas, the game entered "Early Access" in 4/16/2019, and can be purchased from the Playstation Store.

Needs Wiki Magic Love.

Tropes:

  • All Just a Dream: ...it's kinda in the title.
  • Butt-Monkey: Most of the tutorials center around helping Connie reach Cuthbert, who is always finding himself in some pickle.
  • Damn You, Muscle Memory!: Unlike in LittleBigPlanet, nearly everything in the Dream Shaper is done with motion controls (either using the Dualshock 4's motion sensor or a Playstation Move controller). While this works well for manipulating objects in a 3D space, you might find yourself hitting the Undo button while trying to navigate a menu with the D-Pad.
  • Level Editor: Like its predecessor LittleBigPlanet, but even more powerful. In fact, it's basically a game engine at this point!

  • Random Events Plot: Invoked by Dreamsurfing, wherein you play through a random selection of scenes with only a short transition between them. One moment you could be wandering through a haunted art gallery, while the next you could be playing a 2-D platforming game.
  • Scenery Porn: Just look at this trailer! Keep in mind that this was all made in Dreams.
  • Spiritual Successor: To LittleBigPlanet.
