We hear talk about the creative power of games within games like Dreams all the time, whether it's a stunning world to explore or a perfectly crafted action game. But what about an entire music video constructed in Media Molecule's game?
This is what artist Noah Cyrus has pulled off with Media Molecule and Dreams. Just below, you can see the original music video for July by Noah Cyrus, a charmingly warm acoustic track that feels just at home under the Summery landscape in which it's shot.
Next, check out the video from Media Molecule and Noah Cyrus just below. In the first section, the artist talks about why Dreams spoke to her as a creator, and the broad range of customization and options both her and the team were able to play around with for creating the second, in-game music video.
In the latter section of the video above, you can see the Dreams-made music video itself. It's a really ethereal, artistic tour around multiple 3D mood paintings, the sort of thing that wouldn't look out of place if you tacked it onto the end of a Death Stranding trailer.
In all, it's a really lovely process. To see Media Molecule and Cyrus work together on realizing the project, before actually delving into the Dreams creation itself is really impressive, not to mention that the actual in-game creations themselves for the music video are stunningly crafted.
I bet this would be an absolute trip to view in VR, which Dreams just got support for earlier this month. You can now take a tour of Dreams creations within a PS VR, which all existing levels will have certain suitabilities for.
