In February, developers Media Molecule launched their most ambitious creation platform to date, Dreams. Following the success of last decade's LittleBigPlanet, the developers have harnessed this generation's technology to produce a game creation platform that allows players to create much more than side-scrollers.
With the tools embedded in Dreams, players are able to develop games of nearly every genre out there. So far, we've seen first-person shooters, horror adventures, racing games, action RPGs, and everything in-between.
In addition to being able to make playable games, Dreams includes incredibly intuitive music production tools that let users compose entire songs in-game. Levi Niha, a popular YouTube creator known for making videos where he composes music in a number of different video games, uploaded one demonstrating how he utilized the tools provided by Dreams.
