    dreams-ps4 copy.jpg

    Dreams, the last game for PS4 from Media Molecule U.K. developers (Little Big Planet, Tearaway), let users create 3D art, music and games and share them with other players who can then include each elements in their own games.
    The users created a lot of new and original creations, but also many existing IP from games to movies industry.


    More than a year since the beta release, end of 2018, and few days after the official release, in February 14th 2020, Nintendo is now taking legal action and request removal of all their IP in all user's creations.
    It means hundreds of creations, from character to playable levels, to shared elements included in others creations will become unavailable.

    Concerned users are receiving legal notice from Sony on their PSN registered email, and see their creation locked for copyright infringement.

    I rarely make news, I hope the format is fine and the info interesting.
    If it's frontpaged, please someone rewrite the information into something more appealing :P
    and maybe even some question to users, how they feel about removed content? aren't the creations be seen as an honor to be recreated?


    I used the first sources I found, not sure if there are any rules on which one to use, there are many available already.


    I'm playing and enjoying Dreams' creation for a year now.
    I still have hard time creating anything, but playing other's creation is so fun!

    there are so many with a Nintendo IP in it, from simple "?" cube, to full level, to enemies or recreated/personal edited music. (at least personal music should stay, right? it's user's created and not a real recorded audio stream).

    Some example of Nintendo's IP games (among thousands available).


    someone's "best game" choice from March 2020.


    Slideout3019; a wipeout experience from Gauffreman!
    All his creations and games are really beautiful and well achieved.



    But, just a nice information :
    Not every companies are like nintendo !
    For that last "Slideout" video, the Wipeout Omega producer commented and liked it. He even proposed his assistance and to answer any questions the maker of that dream game could have to improve it.

    A little ads for the road !
    Media Molecule is streaming on Twitch for an hour long every Tuesday (tutorial) and Thursday (user creation of the week) 5PM GMT.
    They are a really available developer team, and they answer any users questions.
    Next stream resume on March 31

    Music creation tutorial.

    I really wouldn't want to be the one responsible for removing content. either finding content to fill a DMCA, or Mm (MediaMolecule) removing it, there are so much to take care of and it seems they are doing it on a one by one basis... nintendo has to fill a DMCA for each dream content they find?

    I guess they can't give the order "please remove all marios". because some might be hard to spot (different colors, different design but same animation or sound, etc.)
    lot of original characters are using the 3 jump animation from mario. Are they at risk?

    okay there's going after major fan games and then there's this bullshit
    you can't go after people for using a game creation tool to make fan games with your IP.
    oh right, you can. because the copyright system is f*cked up.

    That sucks I never played this because my ps4 is offline only but I love stuff like this.
    The more you go down this hole Nintendo the less I'm gonna spend on your shit.
    You're putting a bad taste in people's mouths (which you have the right to do but still)

    They could put more resources in other games if they would free all they lawyers (which only sue poor people).

    I remember a Zelda-themed (among many others) level in LittleBig Planet 2, it was perhaps the most well-crafted level I ever played / seen in a LBP.

    If there's demands, they should (in a business sense) satisfies them.
    But we're talking about Nintendo here.

    yes, at least I knew it would happen for any non original work, and Mm properly warned everyone about copyrighted creations. the warning is even included in the game.
    they encourage everyone to make original work to prevent levels and sound to be deleted.
    They also only show original work on their twitch user creation stream.

    I created two IP elements too (disney/pixar and stargate). I wonder if disney will make the same move, but it's not a big loss it was my first character as a test for available options.
    Though, I spend more time on recreating a functional stargate (not finished yet), I wouldn't want to it be deleted, but it's the game :P

    I need to get a copy of this game. I want to play some of the "original" content before it all gets taken down.

    Is this a physical release? Does anyone know?

    There is a physical disc release too.
    amazon com doesn't seem to have it new, only used (or I didn't look correctly)
    amazon uk have some
    the full game should be 40$ (the early access was 30$)
