Developer Diary Puts Game Development Tools In The Hands Of The Player

Dreams is an upcoming sandbox game by Media Molecule (LittleBigPlanet series) that puts interesting creative tools in the hands of players. By controlling an imp, you create in-game items and possess characters as you travel from dream to dream though gateways. Or you can make dreams from scratch that are entirely your own. A new developer diary from Media Molecule (using alpha-quality gameplay) takes a lengthy look into how Dreams is shaping up, showing what players can do in this virtual work-space.

It opens with a time-lapse video demonstrating artists using the in-game tools to craft some impressive pieces, including a massive robot surrounded by rubble and moss, and a sculpture of Sony's Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, who guest stars in the video. The artists use two PlayStation Move controllers like extensions of their own hands, manipulating matter on screen to make sculptures and twisting the remotes to change their focus.

League Expansion Coming To NBA 2K17

The NBA may be dragging its feet on expanding the league, but Visual Concepts isn't. Today the developer of the popular NBA 2K series announced a new feature allowing users to bring additional cities and teams into the competition.

Both the MyLeague and MyGM modes in NBA 2K17 introduce league expansion for up to 36 teams, six past past the number of teams that currently exist. You can bring back classic teams, add Euroleague teams to the fold, or build new teams from scratch. The options for team creation are plentiful. Visual Concepts built out 10 new franchises you can pick up and run with, but you can also peruse the creations of other users and download them to your league, or dive into the minutiae of designing your own arenas, logos, and uniforms.

Visual Concepts says it has buttressed the entire franchise mode experience to account for adding new teams, including expansion drafts, player protections, division realignment, and proper scheduling for future seasons.
