Hello, CoMmunity! Last year we hosted the very first DreamsCom, a community convention dedicated to showing off a ton of brilliant creators and creations in the Dreamiverse. We thought it was a pretty fun experience – and you seemed to agree. Us classic, being on the same page with stuff.
So yes: DreamsCom is back this year. We’re excited to be doing it again and are determined to make this year’s show even better than the last. You can expect even more to play, watch, read, create, and get involved.
“But the sages of Media Molecule!” We hear you cry. “How will I know where to start when I browse the showroom and in-game playlists?” That’s an excellent (and flattering) question, and one that we anticipated. This year, we’ll bring you several days of official DreamsCom coverage live, thanks to our new editorial brand The Impsider. We’ll kick off the process with a livestream, in which we’ll give you a preview of the week of upcoming DreamsCom shows, Tuesday July 27 at 5 p.m. BST / 9 a.m. PST via our Tic
The next day, Wednesday July 28, we’ll be opening the DreamsCom ’21 showroom, which is – you guessed it – entirely #MadeInDreams! Like last year, you’ll be able to wander the theaters and visit the creators’ booths to experience all of the amazing things you’ve seen streaming for yourself. The exhibit will run until Monday August 2 to give you plenty of time to look around, admire everyone’s work and take a bunch of photos.
From Wednesday July 28 to Friday July 30, you can tune into our Twitch channel to catch us playing and discussing some of the DreamsCom creations we are most excited about, as part of The Impsider’s extended DreamsCom coverage. We’ll also be hosting development sessions where we’ll quiz dreamers about their work, their creative inspirations, and maybe even their favorite type of cookie if we run out of grown-up questions. Hope this should give DreamsCom visitors some ideas of what they might like to experience first at the expo.
After all, we hope that – like last year – it is packed to the rafters with bright and shiny stands… made by YOU! This is your open invitation to exhibit at DreamsCom 2021 by customizing a stand to represent your projects in development or your in-Dreams studios in the show.
Want to become an exhibitor? We’ve made it simple for you: we’ve released a remixable booth template in Dreamiverse, and it’s available now. You can also find the template in Dreams by searching for “DreamsCom 21 Booth Template”. You can customize it however you like to truly represent the type of designer you are. We have also provided a collection of entertainment and conventional – You understand? – accessories to include, if you want something to let your creativity flow.
There is also a how-to guide to follow, so together we can make sure we create the best possible experience for all of our DreamsCom visitors. Lead here for more information if you plan to submit a booth!
You have until Friday June 18 to submit your completed booth – you can do so using our special submission tool: indreams.me/challenges
