Final Fantasy 7 Remake is the Latest Game to Get a Dreams Knockoff

It looks slightly ropy, but still very impressive.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake isn't out yet, but some folks aren't content to simply wait. One very dedicated fan has developed their own version of the classic RPG remake inside the make-anything game Dreams, and it looks pretty incredible.

A video of the remake-of-a-remake gained traction after appearing on Twitter. The level itself is called "FFVII Dreamake" and it's made by sosetsuken5360. It's available in the PlayStation 4 early access of Dreams.

The specific encounter is against the Air Buster boss outside the Sector 5 Reactor, and it even includes all three members of the party you're supposed to have at the time: Cloud, Barrett, and Tifa. All of the characters fight using their own styles as well. Cloud swings his sword around, Barrett shoots his machine-gun arm, and Tifa punches and kicks the robot really hard.

It's incredibly impressive to see, considering how much work had to go into building this encounter. While Dreams is certainly malleable to any task, it still takes some time and effort to get there. According to some popular creators, it can take weeks to get a level together, and that includes building out concepts and sculpting assets.

According to the Twitter user that shared this around, there are even more mechanics not shown in the Twitter video, like dodging, locking on, and limit moves, including Cloud's infamous Omnislash. It's a surprisingly deep and well-crafted slice of a Final Fantasy 7 Remake, all inside another game.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake won't hit store shelves until March 3, 2020. If, in the meantime, you'd like to jump into Dreams and try your hand at making your own "Dreamake," be sure to check out our beginner's guide to building in Dreams.
