The two main modes to Dreams are ‘Dream Surfing’ and ‘Dream Shaping’. Dream Surfing allows you to explore the Dream-verse and find creations from other Dreamers around the world. There is a plethora of variety in the content you will find, from games,movies, music and artwork. What’s really exciting about Dreams this early in it’s release is the amount of content players will be able to create and refine with the tools ‘Dreams’ provides.

Just to give you an example of what you can find in Dreams, here are some of creations we enjoyed!
Dream shaping is where you create what your heart desires and help make it come to life. Dreams can seem to be overwhelming at first when you begin to create but by completing the recommended tutorials, which take about 2 to 3 hours, building, shaping and creating become second nature. The depth one can go to and create things they think of is simply magical. Even if some form enjoyment out of what ever your abilities allows you to make.
Dreams is nothing but astounding and the scale of what can be done with the tools provided are only increasing with time. This is something that can be revisited regularly to experience what’s changed, new and how far the community can take the resources provided
