April 2018 Newsletter

Greetings, CoMmunity! 

Welcome to our very first Mm Monthly Newsletter! Each month you can find out what we've been up to with Dreams, get a look behind the scenes at the studio and maybe even a sneak peek of what we've been creating! We'll let you know what events and streams we've got coming up and anything you may have missed from the previous month. We hope you enjoy the updates and let us know what else you'd like to see by reaching out on our social channels.

This months beautiful header artwork is drawn by our talented artist Maja-Lisa Kehlet, who produced the image for International Women's Day. Maja joined us in 2015 as a Character and Environment Artist and has been using her incredible talents to bring Dreams to life ever since. 


You can download her International Women's Day artwork as part of a PS4 Theme, available on the PlayStation Store now (EU only).


Last Month in Dreams

GDC & Day of the Devs 2018

GDC & Day of the Devs 2018

We sent a whole bunch of Molecules over to San Francisco to demonstrate Dreams at GDC 2018 in March, and it was awesome! We showed a whole host of new people our lovely game, building new levels each day, as part of DoubleFine's Day of the Devs showcase. Oh, and we managed to find time to host our stream for the month, where Mike Pang, John Beech and Jon Eckersley show off creating animation and puppetry! If you missed that, you can watch it in full right over here.

Train Jam

Train Jam

52 hours, 4 Molecules and 1 train across the United States! We sent Alex Perry, Abbie Heppe, Ed Hargrave and John Beech on an adventure to GDC - Train Jam 2018! The annual event gathers up game developers and pops them on a train ride from Chicago to San Francisco where they create a game in only 52 hours (or so, depending on snow delays!). So, armed with Dreams, 4 PS4s, 4 monitors, Move controllers, DS4s, a laptop server and wires hilariously duct taped to the ceiling of the train cabin, our bunch created the astoundingly named 'Comic Sands' (thanks, @AlexQRyan for the name) which you can check out here

And if you want to see how it was made, make sure to check out our April 20th stream (5 PM GMT) at www.twitch.com/media_molecule

Fan Art Pin Board

We've picked some of our favourite pieces of Fan-Art from 2018 so far to be included in our newsletter. If you've created something, send it to us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, we'd love to see it and who knows - maybe we'll feature it in next month's newsletter.
