Fans are remaking Sony’s former PS3 MMO PlayStation Home in Dreams.
Dreams Central is described as a “social entertainment hub” featuring public and private spaces, minigames and attractions, which is attempting to realise the ambitions of the closed online social game.
“When PlayStation Home closed, it left a void in the gaming community which hasn’t really been filled,” the project’s community-led team wrote. “The idea of a 3D social network was ahead of its time and the initial vision wasn’t fully realised.
“We aim to do something similar to the initial concept and act as a stepping stone to the metaverse. Games like Planet Coaster, The Urbz, Jet Set Radio, ThrillVille and Splatoon also inspired us along the way.”
A trailer was released for the project on Friday, showing many of the ambitious features planned for the game including pool, air hockey, bowling, a cinema and social spaces such as a beach and skate park.
The game’s developers also say they’re planning to include interactive roller-coasters, bumper cars, mini-golf, escape rooms, carnival games and more.
The game is planned for release in 2022, by which time Media Molecule will likely have implemented online multiplayer functionality into the game builder’s suite of tools.
