PROTOLAND is a 'boomer' first person shooter made in Dreams on my PS5. Give it a go if you have the chance. Dreams is free for all PSN extra and premium users afteral ;)

Due to the fact that Media Molecule is moving on from Dreams, i'm also jumping to game design on PC. Follow me on Twitter X @Genesis8012 if you want to keep track with my future projects :)

Congratulations! I wish Sony would have stuck with Dreams and ported it to PC to use as a game engine for devs to release full games with. They squandered this.

I got to play for a moment. Noticeable improvement in presentation and level design. Pretty nice. What engine have you shifted to?

@PAL360: You probably don't remember me as I was using a different username back then, but I used to rag on the game for Sony/devs not paying its creators for making games within Dreams, and we talked about it not being a game, but selling you tools.

Anyway I looked up this game and although i'm not a big fan of first-person shooters I do acknowledge the dedication it takes to create a game, so congrats.

I found this interview that the dreams website site did with you over a year ago, if anyone wants to read it here is the link.

Seems you have the right game priorities πŸ‘

@Pedro: Thanks man. I haven't yet, have been relaxing and playing some games from my backlog.

But i'll start with something simpler like a pixelart platformer made in Gamemaker 2 or GODOT. When i'm confortable i'll move to something like Unreal or Unity.

@last_lap: Thanks!

To be honest i had that conversation with many people back then.

Sony should have found ways to monetize the good stuff made in Dreams, but people still got into game design thanks to it. No time wasted.

But yeah, Sony clearly lacked the vision to understand that while Dreams would never get early sales like an Uncharted or God of War, it had the legs and potental few games do. It could have been their own factory of indie exclusives. Instead they invested in the massive mess that Roblox is :/

I would strongly recommend jumping immediately to Unity or Unreal. Skip the middle.
