This Demon's Souls Lookalike Was Made in Dreams on PS4 in One Hour

This Demon's Souls Lookalike Was Made in Dreams on PS4 in One Hour

"I dub thee Dreamon's Souls."

Media Molecule showed off some more Dreams gameplay during a Twitch Stream yesterday. Using pre-built assets, the team were able to create a “Gothic Novel” level in under an hour, and it looked a hell of a lot like Demon's Souls/Dark Souls.

The Twitch Stream, which you can check out below, was billed as a game jam session, in which Media Molecule showed off some of the creation tools in Dreams. It’s impressive stuff, and really proves just how deep and versatile the game is. The end result was a Gothic-themed castle world, with booby-traps and an armor-clad main character, very reminiscent of Demon Souls.

You could even say that Dreams is the Dark Souls of creation games. Sony's marketing department can have that one for free.

The latest gameplay showcase will no doubt be a relief for many, as there has been a fair bit of uncertainty regarding where Dreams is in its development cycle. Dreams was first revealed at a PlayStation Meeting event back in 2013, before it received an official announcement during Sony’s 2015 E3 Press Conference. Since then, we’ve not seen a huge amount of the game, and the beta, which was supposed to launch last year, is still yet to be seen.

A Dreams Beta is set for later this year, though a specific release date has yet to be announced. It's also currently unclear when the full game will launch, but 2018 is looking unlikely. It seems to be a huge undertaking for the British indie studio, aiming to offer up incredibly complex yet intuitive game creation tools. Players can create their own assets, music, physics effects and more, before sharing them with the community.

Earlier this year, we finally got the chance to take on Dreams for ourselves just prior to E3. For our full preview impressions on the ambitious game, check out our Dreams hands-on impressions.
