This game could be a good education tool. Wonder if multiple people at once can experience your game or someone else's? If not that would be a good idea for the inevitable PS5 version......

If this takes off I'm sure Microsoft will bring out their own equivalent.

Multiplayer is going to be added after launch, so, yes, multiple people will be able to experience your game at once, if that's what you desire.

just signed up for the beta! As an animator, first thing i'll do is animate that fish for people.

not knowing how rigging is handled in Dreams, biggest problems I forsee with the sculpt so far is that its not modeled in a neutral straight pose. And the mouth doesnt look like its meant to be closed so the teeth fit properly around the lips. will see what i cna do once i get in there and comfortable.

not sure what i want to do with Dreams though. do i play other peoples creations. do i start working on my own small scale games. or do i just start creating!! part of me just wants to create.

Sony needs to make this available on Steam and sell "tools pack update" as DLCs. This is one of the most ambitious games ever created but they need a different approach to make it something as big as it can become.

If I were them, I'd try a deal with the Epic Store, too. We would get incredible games if the PC community laid their hands on it.

while smart, its not happening, but something they COULD do is give it mouse support. i mean why give it keyboard support with no mouse support! wish I could hook up a wacom tablet to my ps4!

My advice from personal experience would be to concentrate on one discipline at a time. It's overwhelming to say the least. Each discipline is deep and goes deeper the more you find out. Whatever you are inclined towards in the real world, I'd settle for that. It really is a complex and comprehensive set of tools.

Hopefully, when the game releases (or the NDA is lifted), people will finally get to see the brilliant stuff being made.

Nothing I'm afraid, just me and you, questions and my vague (under DNA) answers. Ask away. I can't be specific obviously but I can maybe give something approaching a satisfactory answer.

Nothing yet for me, I wish there had been at least an email confirming that I had signed up.

If I don't get in, I don't get in but, if it's cause I didn't do something correctly for the sign up that would suck. Really looking forward to this game.

I still have nothing in my mail account tied to my psn account :(
I am currently afraid I won't be able to join the beta this week-end. Or it has been sent through psn directly but I can't connect to it right now (work)

I have to say, it's very annoying how they're handling this beta. I hope I get a code when the US ones go out, but I feel for anyone who doesn't. With how long and drawn out the development has been and how poorly they're doing this "public beta," it really is annoying to anyone who has actually been anticipating this for years.

man its SO powerful that I'm distracted and cant focus on where to start. i may ahve to come up with some design docs.... i feel like the utlities people are going to be creating for the community to use as a whole is going to be insane
Pick what you consider the most important discipline for your needs and only concentrate on that for the beta. Trust me, don't get lost in the maze.

Seems like 1% of applicants got into the jan 11 wave. Fingers crossed for secind wave on the 14th, but doubt ill be able to play much during the workweek

Anyone from the us get one?
It seems to be a limited batch but more go out today. I've just been looking at 'cloth physics' someone did. People are already pushing it.

As I said above, more go out today so it's not too late! Don't expect it, just 'pray'! Some of the stuff I've been looking at today is just extraordinary and things are just getting better and better. I personally find making things very difficult and I've expressed my frustration elsewhere but every time I see what others have done it brings be back again.

I'll keep watching with my fingers crossed.
