August 2019 Newsletter
August 2019 Newsletter

Hey, CoMmunity! Is it really the end of August already?! Nope. It’s September..somehow we left for PAX West and forgot to hit send, so think of this as a bonus September newsletter, cool?

August has been a busy one for us and Dreams, including our trip to Gamescom where Dreams was named Most Original Game and Best of Show as well as Best PS4 Game! So thank YOU for being a part of that journey - you are all award winners in our book. And now...your monthly update from MM HQ:

Our SuMmer Festival Community Jam got us well and truly in the festival spirit, and Entropy-Tamed’s wonderful “Road to ElectroFest” was voted the most popular! We asked them to give us a few words on how they came up with the idea:


For the Music Festival jam I knew that I wanted to focus solely on a sculptural piece. The idea of being on the road, travelling to the festival was enticing to me because it let me focus on a few key elements and really ramp up the detail level. That said, days into sculpting a classic convertible for a music festival themed jam, you do begin to wonder if you’ve completely lost your way (I know my wife did). But, once I was able to place some puppets into poses and start sculpting on top of them I was pretty happy with how it all came together.

During the course of the jam I heard Dennis Campos (aka Electrofawn) had passed away and I knew that I wanted pay homage to him and his work in my own small way. While I didn’t know him personally, the amazing thing about Dreams is it allows you a small glimpse into the minds of others. Something as simple as placing cubes, and spheres, and cylinders can give rise to a creation that can be shared, enjoyed, and talked about by others across the world. I, for one, am sad that there is one less Dreamer out there sharing his creations!

Sending mega-hugs to all the Dreamers out there. Your care and support of each other is lovely to see!


Dreams Fact!

Plenty of you snap-happy Dreamers have wowed us with images from your creations, but just how many shutters have been snapped closed during Early Access so far? Well...

What's New at Mm HQ?

Gamescom

Gamescom

Whew! Our week in Cologne for Gamescom was a busy one, but a truly special one! Not only did we get to demo Dreams to a ton of new faces, we got to meet a bunch of our German CoMmunity members AND have their creations on the showfloor for those at the show to play! Big thanks to SakkusMind, EliteCloud_, Team Pig Detective, Keduko, Schrottmaker, Nikidan, COB-Commander, Marcilein98 and bigsurf77 for allowing us to have their games on show at Gamescom!

We were also beyond honoured to have Dreams named Best of Show, Best PS4 Game AND Most Original Game during the Gamescom Awards, as well as receiving awards from Game Two for innovation and originality! Those awards belong to the CoMmunity as well as us, so congratulations everyone! <3

PAX West 2019!

PAX West 2019!

And so ends another PAX West! We had an utterly fabulous time in Seattle this year, seeing so many people play Dreams (and a bunch of creations from community) and talking to even more people about it! We even got to a LIVE version of our Community Creations stream at our panel - which you can watch here! Oh, and we totally got The Predator to play Dreams. Turns out, he’s pretty good at Dreamiverse Dash...

Geese, Knights, Bikes and Kareem!

Geese, Knights, Bikes and Kareem!

We've been keeping up with our streams in between the various shows we've been at, and we ended August with our lovely friends Rex and Moo, aka Foam Sword Games, to celebrate the launch of Knights and Bikes! You can catch our Jam stream with them right here!

We've also kicked off a new series of streams with Kareem, our Art Director! Once a month, Kareem will be taking to the Mm sofa to continue work on a sculpture he started for the Underwater Kingdom! You can watch his latest here, and tune in on 1st October at 5PM BST for his next episode!


CoMmunity Happenings!

Meet the CoMmunity - DISARMED

Meet the CoMmunity - DISARMED

By now, you’ll recognise the name DISARMEDX from Metro, CURIOSITY and his amazing music. Just this month, DISARMED’s trailer for his upcoming Dreams project GUARDIANS was released on Twitter to an amazing response! But, as nominated by Project Genesis as July’s Mm Monthly, it was time for us to get to know him just a little bit better:


What do you like to do in the Dreamiverse?
Normally if I’m not creating I’ll sit back and find beautiful visual sets to just explore, wondering how others go about doings scenery! So insightful & peaceful! I hope more people send me their visual beauties!


If you could give other members of the CoMmunity a piece of advice for their time in Dreams, what would it be?
Patience is a virtue, it can be discouraging to never have the results you want immediately. If you wanna make something amazing then take your time on it, people can tell when you really put hard work into something.


What was the first thing you created in Dreams?
The first thing I created on dreams was a song called ADRIFT, which fortunately a lot of other creators really enjoyed during the beta 💕


Favourite food, movie and song, in that order. GO!

PIZZA, THE MATRIX & HEY YA! BY ANDRE 3000!


How can people find you in the Dreamiverse?
You can find me by searching up DISARMEDX , I’ve created quite a few things I think many of you will find interesting to look at such as visual presentations, music & other things!


Who'd you like to get to know in the Dreamiverse? We'll ask them some questions for next month's newsletter!
Currently I’m interested in knowing what llama packed adventures & such @j_plusb is working on!


Well, hopefully we can get j_plusb to chat with us for the next newsletter, because we are dying to know all about what llamas have or haven’t been llama’d in the llama’ing of his next project!

Dreams Guild - Happy Farm

Dreams Guild - Happy Farm

One of our favourite things in the Dreamiverse is seeing the CoMmunity come together to collaborate, assist or lend advice to others with their creations. Collaboration is a big part of what we want from Dreams, and to see the Dreams Guild (one of several creator groups!) publish their first art kit to the Dreamiverse was amazing! Congratulations, team!

The Dreams Guild is Lucid_Stew, LadyLexUK, DirtyHarolds, hookline-dreamer, ShadowMe, GentlemanTom, Mr_Rob0t_init1, sketch2805, pencils_mcgeek.

The Happy Farm kit is available to use in your creations right now, and can be found on indreams.me right here!
