UPDATE 8/9: Dancing is Forbidden Podcast will be livestreaming the game. See below.
Games in the Adult Swim Universe are few and far between these days. Adult Swim Games seemingly shuttered, with only a select few games left advertised on their website (I’m very attached to my iOS copy of Robot Unicorn Attack 2 and will never delete it – and hopefully will never have to).
Of course, with the advent of games with editors baked in, you can essentially make your own world(s). That being said, the month of August on PlayStation Network subscribers can download the game Dreams for free.
According to Wikipedia, “In Dreams, players control an “imp”, which is used to interact with the game’s world and interface like a mouse cursor, create new items and characters, and manipulate objects by grabbing and pulling them. Players can move the imp with one of two control schemes: moving and rotating the DualShock 4 or PlayStation Move controllers, or using the left and right analog sticks. The imp is customizable, and can possess characters featured in a dream, allowing players to take direct control of these characters.”
The game seems to be on par with Little Big Planet, wherein you can design your own characters and levels. I haven’t personally had a PlayStation in about a year or so, but LBP was fun for the creative ways users would make worlds from different movies (loved the various Ghostbusters and Back to the Future ones).
So you’re probably asking why you would want to download Dreams? In particular? Among all the games in Dreams, you can download Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The (Very Unofficial) Game, designed by ATHF fan, Kirksplosion:
As you can see by the trailer, the designs are awesome (honestly, puts Zombie Ninja Pro-Am to shame) and includes not only the Aqua Teens, but some of the monsters like Rabbot and Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future.
You can download the Dreams game here (free this month for PSN users or $20 for non PSN) and Kirksplosions (Very Unofficial) game right here.
Also, if you want to hear him chat about the work that went into it, listen to him chat with our dude Ronnie from Dancing is Forbidden. UPDATE: In addition, Ronnie will be livestreaming the game on his Twitch channel some time on August 24th check it out here.
I’m definitely going to seek out this game once I’m able to afford a PS5 (or if it ever makes its way to the other consoles). You should too!
