We thought it was about time we caught up with him to get to know a little bit more about Dreams’ first ever Creator of the Year, SlurmMacKenzie! Read on to find a little bit more about the Dreamer who brought us Shifting Islands, Time Corruption, Do Robots Dream of Electric Imps and more!
What do you like to do in the Dreamiverse?
I like to build short gameplay experiences, usually by focusing on a simple idea and building around it. I also like DreamSurfing and discovering weird and surreal experiences. I also love playing with optical illusions, I've used a few ones in my projects, and I hope I'll be able to make a Dream that revolves around this idea in the future.
If you could give other members of the CoMmunity a piece of advice for their time in Dreams, what would it be?
Start small, don't be afraid of failure, and keep playing with the tools. I like the idea of publishing playable and finished small projects, at least in the beginning, because you'll learn so much from your experience and the feedback you'll get. It really keeps you motivated and you can always take a step back and see how you progressed through your creations.
What was the first thing you created in Dreams?
Everyone has to start somewhere: a flattened rounded cube. I then used the clone tools with it, and it became the setting for Polarity.
Favourite food, movie and song, in that order. GO!
For the food and movie it's easy : Raclette and Brazil. For the song, I just cannot pick a single one. So here's some of the music I like and probably listened too much at various point in my life: Petit frère by IAM, Léa by Louise Attaque, Le spleen des petits by Stupeflip.
How can people find you in the Dreamiverse?
You can search SlurmMacKenzie in the Dreamiverse. My latest Dream is already a few month old, but I have two short projects that should hopefully be published soon!
Who'd you like to get to know in the Dreamiverse? We'll ask them some questions for next month's newsletter!
I'd love to know more about MrCaseyJones' sense of humour and if he's not tired of the word "Opposite".
