This Picture of Eggs From Dreams is Currently Blowing Everyone's Mind

The NDA for Media Molecule's upcoming game Dreams is now up, and creators who've been beta testing Dreams are showing off some of their creations. One of the more popular sculpts created in Dreams is a good-looking set of eggs.

Dreams is Media Molecule's upcoming creation engine. While it's possible to play games in Dreams, it's more accurate to call Dreams a full-on game engine. Players can create full games and share them online with other Dreams players, or use the engine to make videos, virtual sculptures, and almost anything else that's possible to make in a graphical engine.

Dreams also lets players imitate a wide range of visuals, whether it's something more cartoonish like Media Molecule's Little Big Planet, or photo-realistic like these eggs. In fact, these eggs are so impressive, president of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida shared a picture of them on Twitter. It's also at the top of the Dreams subreddit.

It might sound weird to say, but these eggs do a good job of showcasing what's possible in Dreams. As a sandbox tool, Dreams is quite powerful, which was belied by initial examples of Dreams utilizing a more impressionistic art style. Combined with the more abstract art style Media Molecule is known for, it's easy to assume that Dreams only handles more painterly, or abstract art styles. These eggs say otherwise, and shows off the graphical power and versatility of Dreams.

The subreddit is full of different creations made in Dreams that all look very impressive. Some players have been testing Dreams by re-creating other video games with scary levels of accuracy, like a Dead Space remake, for instance. Others are already creating original games and art pieces. Below are a couple impressive works created using Dreams.

Dreams was announced back in GamesCom 2013 for the PlayStation 4. Initially, there was some confusion as to what exactly Dreams was. It featured elements of character creation and customization Media Molecule was known for implementing in games like Little Big Planet and Tearaway. But there's no central character or game underneath Dreams like the Sackboy platforming in Little Big Planet.

Instead, Dreams is a sandbox tool that's capable of creating entire games using its tools and assets. There's even a chance that players could create and sell games made in Dreams on PSN, though Media Molecule says that's still up-in-the-air at this stage.

Dreams is slated to launch sometime this year exclusively on the PlayStation 4.
