If you've had trouble getting to grips with precisely what Dreams is, you're not alone. So here's a helpful indication of what to expect: People are using Dreams to remake their favourite games, including Mirror's Edge and Tomb Raider.
Footage of the test level, which looks a little what you imagine a prototype Mirror's Edge would have looked like, has started appearing online.
Titled Wall-Jump and Wall-Climb FPS and made by Adayam0, it's incredibly basic for now. But it highlights just the kind of scope Dreams is capable of achieving.
The same maker found a way to basically remake Quake, albeit with some neater physics, in Dreams as well.
Can you imagine how cool a Quake would be with more destructible levels? Holy shit, sign me up.
But it's not just classic first-person shooters that are getting a second lease of life in Dreams. If you look for Se-mi92 in-game, you'll discover a remake of Tomb Raider.

Dreams might actually be YouTube, but for video games.
