Watch Horror Classic ‘P.T.’ Recreated In Sony’s Forthcoming UGC-Driven Game ‘Dreams’
Okay, so, we don't feel exactly great about sharing this, because apparently the footage breaks a very clear NDA given to anyone participating in the Dreams beta (which is running now, until 4 February). But some things are too good not to share, right? And we don't think that the attention will hurt Dreams all that much.
(But all the same, sorry Media Molecule. We love your stuff and if this is crossing a line, get in touch!)
All participants in the Dreams beta were told not to share their creations on social media. But footage has leaked of the game being used to remake Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro's deleted horror classic, P.T. - a game/experience that also recently got remade as Unreal PT.
Dreams is being developed by Media Molecule, the British studio behind Sony's LittleBigPlanet series and the astounding Vita game Tearaway. It's due for release later in 2019, and is a game that facilitates the creation of other games, with an emphasis on "play, create and share".
But yesterday, 20 January, one beta user hit that share button a little too soon. It's unclear whether the Twitter user @sergeantbike is the actual creator of the below clip - apparently P.T. remade in Dreams - but holy heck, just look at it. It's beautiful.

And it's also, most probably (um, definitely), a breach of the NDA Media Molecule issued to all beta players. Posting below the clip, Media Molecule dev Christophe Villedieu wrote: "Man, as much as love this creation (did you made it?) Our NDA is pretty clear... please remove it for now."
And yet, the 33-second P.T. clip remains live, for now. Another user breached the NDA with a clip of a Mario game within Dreams, earning the (playful?) scorn of Christophe: "Yup, same NDA apply to you tweet man".

Is this ignoring of an NDA potentially *good* for Dreams, though? Were you all that aware of the game before seeing it put to use like this? It certainly looks to be an exciting creative tool, and we're excited to see how the best 'players' will put it to use. Let us know what you think about this - we're on Twitter and Facebook.
