Dreams Creator Early Access being withdrawn from sale this weekend – buy it while you can!

Dreams’ stay in Early Access is coming to an end, as MediaMolecule have announced that it will be withdrawn from sale this weekend. You have until Sunday, 8th December, 11.59pm GMT / 9th December 00.59am CET to pick up the Dreams Creator Early Access at its reduced price of £24.99.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to play the games that people have created, or explore the creation tools to create your own – the Early Access will still be available to play for those that have bought it, it’s just the ability to actually buy it that’s being removed. Anyone that buys the game now will be upgraded to the full version when Dreams launches at no extra cost.

What this does mean is that MediaMolecule are moving from collecting feedback and finding bugs to rounding out the rest of the game, its possibilities and their own created experiences. Still on the to-do list are the non-motion controls for the game, PSVR support, better tutorials and how-to content for all levels, the Homespace and Imp Quests and creating the first Mm stories, called Art’s Dream.

The Creator Early Access version of the game was released back in April, welcoming players in to explore the game and start creating. It was the second public stage of development, after the beta this time last year, for a game that was first teased during the PlayStation 4 reveal press event way back in 2013!

Marking the end of the year and the end of Early Access are the first IMPY Awards, looking at everything created over the last 7 months. Some categories are decided by Mm, while others (marked with a * in the list below) are voted for by the community, with nominations opening on 9th December.

The categories are:

  • Creator of the Year

  • Best Visuals

  • Best Song
  • Best Animation
  • Best Gameplay
  • Best Curator

  • Most Improved Dreamer
  • Hidden Gem Creator*

The winners will be decided and announced in January with a stream on the 26th January. Will that be when MediaMolecule reveal the game’s final release date? Fingers crossed!
