DreamsCom, our in-game convention for Dreams content creators has made a comeback this year, bigger than ever! It is an entire exhibition, made in Dreams, with an exhibition space with more than 40 halls and more than 250 interactive stands from nearly 300 unique creators. There were demos to play, new titles announced and so much more from the amazing Dreams community – and we can’t get enough of the creativity on display.
It was a challenge to choose a handful of booths to feature in this blog, but the following 13 booths really captured what’s possible at DreamsCom, so we asked the creators to tell us about their process:
Podcast Made In Dreams – Hall # 47
LucidNebulaGames: The Made in Dreams podcast is community-based, so it was totally appropriate to use the community resources of the Dreamiverse. I loved searching through the assets and bringing them all together to create a talk show style booth that represents our show and its community.
Magma-Monsta booth – Hall # 40
Magma-Monsta: I kept my color stand simple enough to create a strong contrast to the colorful DreamsCom. With the voiceover coming from the animatronic character, I tried to emphasize the whole concept of the cabin. My goal was to challenge the concept of an expo in a game like Dreams – just for fun. I love games that break the fourth wall. DreamsCom is very special to me because it shows the power of the Dreams community. It gives every designer the chance to express their work in a really cool and unique way.
ApesOnFire booth – Hall # 8
ApesOnFire: Without the Dreams community, I wouldn’t have had a booth for DreamsCom. Hosted with the help of MrCaseyJones and AndymationB, I was able to express my creativity and encourage new members of the community to come on my channel and share their creations! What I like best about participating in DreamsCom21 is the opportunity to discover new creators!
Dead Zone: Aberration – Hall # 47
NauticalSquatch: I used my booth to promote my next FPS game, Deadzone: Aberration. I wanted it to look like the cover of a luscious sci-fi novel and pay homage to the classic horror book series, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”. The best part of participating in Dreamscom as a creator is having a platform to show off what you’ve been working on – then seeing that there are people, including Media Molecule, who care and are excited about the work you’ve spent your time on. and love in.
Plush Deh – Hall # 9
YahDeh: This Deh Plushies mini shop is filled with cute and cuddly plush toys. It now includes a café and a selection of books written by other Dreamers. Snap photos with your favorite Foodimals like the Pancake Shark, Candy Narwhal, and Melon Turtle. My favorite part of attending DreamsCom was just being able to contribute to the show and seeing how the amazing community came together once again to show the potential of Dreams.
DreamsFest 2021 – Room # 46
beardofcats88: DreamsFest is a music festival event at Dreams. So our team thought that it would only be appropriate to create a little rock show for our booth with lights, music and a DJ. My favorite part of DreamsCom21 was all the interactive booths – oooDorienooo’s 3 mini game kiosks were mind blowing. I also loved being able to compare DreamsCom21 to last year’s event. It’s clear to see that Dreams is getting louder and louder all the time, and it’s not going anywhere!
SootyPinions Art & Assets – Hall # 14
I wanted to make a small green space. I knew there would be so many logical wonders and it was never my forte, but a little time under the trees could be nice in the midst of the excitement, and that’s what I do well! Everyone has a signature – mine is leafy! My favorite part of DreamsCom is being able to explore how inventive people have the same space and the same boundaries.
Porto – Hall n ° 14
Cubixphere: The big screen announcing the development of Porto hints at the gaming world to come. Each letter has been sculpted, using a text gadget as a guide. On the left, stands the main character who presents himself as an animatronic in the cabin. He happily goes through different animations greeting visitors. Participating in the DreamsCom stream and announcing my new project was incredibly fun and exciting!
Pet Cafe Kiosk – Hall # 41
Mezzyartiist: When I thought about making a Pet Cafe stand, I wanted to include some elements that weren’t included in the final game, like the giraffe and the little hamster, so it was fun to finally be able to draw them as they would appear. Stakes! I really enjoyed and embraced the craziness of the event!
Lou moves in – Hall # 21
Byvsen: The best part about my booth is that you can talk to [my character] Lou. It’s a fun way to give players information about the project, as well as get to know Lou a little bit more! It was quite difficult to integrate this functionality into the booth, but it was worth it. My favorite part about participating in DreamsCom is finally being able to see what people think about my project so far – it really motivates me to keep working on it!
The Orion Trail – Hall # 27
donut_mutt & Ghostfruit64: We featured our booth as a travel agency for our game, The Orion Trail’s ubiquitous mega-company, Hyperion Galactic. Retro-futuristic posters, displays, and a grainy broadcast voice promise gamers a safe journey to the new world, free from otherworldly threats. Players can glimpse the journey ahead by believing the exact opposite of what Hyperion has to say. Being involved with DreamsCom is like being invited to the world’s best party for indie game developers!
Topher Thebes & The Enchanted Crystal: Remastered – Hall # 6
VerbalCreative: I wanted my booth to be interactive while promoting my latest project. Using the resources of Topher Thebes and Enchanted Crystal: Remastered, I got the idea to have a game of hide and seek with Topher. This allowed my son to help out as he is Topher’s voice in the booth and in the game. Participating in DreamsCom is such an amazing way to showcase your work, but my favorite part is discovering other amazing talents from the community !
Detective Pig and the Beast of Boffington – Hall # 25
Team Pig Detective: Although the Pig Detective booth features a very spooky mini-game of DirtyHarolds, a photo point lovingly drawn by Andymationb and ReddishBoat in a pineapple costume, it’s actually just a vehicle for the word. secret pass that treated DreamsCom visitors to an exclusive demo preview of the upcoming game Pig Detective and the Beast of Boffington.
