“We’ve had lots of questions from creators about using Dreams for viable business opportunities off PlayStation such as concept work,” the update post reads. “We welcome and encourage creators to do this, but it’s new territory for us. We’ve been busy behind the scenes mapping out how we can make it easier for creators to do this in the future. We are kicking this off with a beta evaluation, where creators can submit an application to use Dreams for a specific project.”
14 Community Creations Made In Dreams
You can view that beta evaluation here, should you want to apply. The update continues to explain that the evaluation is only available to Early Access Members in “good standing.” Media Molecule asks that those who apply have published creations that can be viewed or have a showreel that showcases their work made in dreams viewable to the studio.
As far as what kind of projects this evaluation applies to, Media Molecule said basically any Dreams creation, as long as its value ‘off PlayStation’ is demonstrable. The update post also answered a few other questions regarding original creations in Dreams. Media Molecule said the creator of an original idea in Dreams is the IP owner for that creation, and that said person is free to use their IP in artwork, music portfolios, collages, or even a T-shirt design.
“In other words, for your own personal use,” the post reads.Dreams has been out for just under a month and Media Molecule is looking into ways to improve its systems to highlight more original content rather than remakes. That’s not to say remakes or non-original IPs aren’t worth checking out – just take the unofficial Avatar: The Last Airbender game that already has millions of admirers.
We thought Media Molecule’s latest was amazing, giving Dreams a 9 out of 10.
