Have you signed up to be the first to hear about Dreams Early Access?

A new post on the PlayStation Blog announces Early Access to Media Molecule's Dreams will be available from Spring 2019! We don't quite know when in spring, and to add to the anxiety Early Access spaces will be limited.

A link on the blog offers updates in exchange for your PSN ID. links to the US and EU sign up site are included below. Mm have promised to announce further regions that will benefit from early access in due course.

I for one am a little nervous. By all accounts, the early access sounds like a brilliant deal for players who already know they want the game. It may have a lower price point than at full release, and there is the obvious benefit of getting your hands on it ASAP. However, during the closed Beta, communication issues meant some players were left disappointed when technicalities around the sign-up process delayed their access. I hope Mm find a way to limit disappointment this time around. I will be watching all news sources like a hawk for announcements...

End of the Beta

The Beta testing phase for Media Molecule's Dreams wrapped up at the beginning of this week.

Dreams Creator Beta finished

It was fantastic to be involved. The Beta completely smashed my expectations, which were incredibly high. I've included some screenshots below, but I'll write more about the Beta, and share pics and videos of player content later in the week.

For now, I just can't wait for them to drop the release date!

Some scenery from a fantasy game I was building. This was the first game I started. Sadly the Beta ended before I could finish it :(

Some surreal art made sing random kaleidoscopic shapes that were set on spinners. I made videos of these and will upload soon.

I used gadgets in game to create a pulsing effect with the colours and lights which looked really cool. Can't wait to play around like this more when the game comes out, and perhaps turn them into an abstract game!
