DREAMERS: Everything We Know



If there’s anything that can tout a charming yet equally in-depth story-driven adventure, it’s DREAMERS, an exquisitely illustrated low-poly game that bears all the hallmark qualities of an award-winning indie. It hasn’t come out yet, but the fact that developer PlaySys has already managed to harbour a surprisingly dense fan base truly does speak volumes for it. The question is, will the coined narrative-centric  game be everything its developers have claimed it to be, or will it be a vague representation of its original concept — a watermark on a much larger portrait?

Sure enough, there’s still a fair bit we don’t actually know about the upcoming adventure, other than the fact it will tie the knot with tones of emotional warmth and self-discovery. And if that’s the sort of thing you’ve been longing to submerge into, then you’ll definitely want to check it out when it eventually comes to consoles and PC. Until it arrives, though, here’s everything you should know about it. DREAMERS: what’s the story, and how will it look to lay the foundations for PlaySys’ future in indie development? Let’s dig right in.


If you’re looking to immerse in a wholehearted tale, then chances are you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in DREAMERS. Its premise, while littered with numerous blank pages in its current state, will revolve around three different characters, all of whom have original backstories and traits to unravel. As each of the three protagonists, players will embark on a series of quests through dynamic regions that house networks of intriguing secrets and talkative NPCs. As for what the moral of this story is remains unclear, but according to the blurb, it will lean towards “friendship, exploration, and personal growth.”

In PlaySys’ own words: “DREAMERS will lead you on an emotional journey in a story about friendship, exploration, and personal growth. Join the three characters in their adventure through a 3D world with secondary storylines and mini-games, vehicles to upgrade, puzzles to solve, and collaborative split-screen experiences.”

From what we’ve caught so far, DREAMERS will be a family-friendly experience, and will therefore adhere to a strict violence-free policy. According to the guys over PlaySys, “we strongly believe that violence is never the solution and for this reason, we want you to experience DREAMERS as a violence-free game to be enjoyed with your family and friends.” Fair dos.


So, what exactly is the story here, and how will the three aforementioned heroes tie in with the overall narrative? Well, that’s just the thing. As it stands, PlaySys has yet to delve any deeper than its rather vague general description, which of course tells us of these three unique characters and their personal journeys of self-discovery. As for what it is that they’ll be getting up to is anybody’s guess, though according to the blurb, their adventures will take them to “diverse regions, each with it own challenges and mysteries to uncover.” So that’s, you know, a start.

“Explore a vast world filled with diverse regions, each with its own challenges and mysteries to uncover,” the description echoes. “The graphic style is colourful low-poly 3D, bringing a unique and charming look to the game.”

“Along the way, you'll meet a cast of intriguing NPCs who will offer quests and aid you in your journey,” the blurb continues. “As you progress through the main storyline, you'll encounter obstacles and puzzles, each more challenging than the last. But fear not, for your trio of heroes possess a range of skills and abilities that can be used to overcome these challenges.”


From the looks of the footage that has been provided to date, DREAMERS’ gameplay will feature a mixture of platforming and exploration. As well as this, there will also be a slew of mini-games to partake in, co-op-based challenges to discover, and rewards to unlock.

“In addition to the main storyline, there are countless side quests to complete, each offering unique rewards and opportunities for exploration,” the description adds. “And if you're looking for a break from the adventure, there are also mini-games and puzzles scattered throughout the world, vehicles to upgrade and collaborative split-screen experiences.” So, clearly quite the plateful, from the sounds of it.


PlaySys first revealed DREAMERS back in 2021, at which point it shared a short gameplay trailer and, in the months following its announcement, released a playable demo. More recently, however, the team has partnered up with Microsoft to bring an updated demo to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. You can get ahold of that over on the Microsoft Store later this summer.

At the time of writing, PlaySys hasn’t hammered down a final release date. So, other than it being stapled to a ‘coming soon’ tag on Steam, there isn’t a whole lot that tells us when exactly it’ll be gearing up to launch. Given the fact that there’s an updated demo in the pipeline, though, there is reason to believe it’ll be heading our way at some point in the next six or seven months. But don’t take our word on that.

Release Date, Platforms & Editions

DREAMERS will be heading to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. As for when it’ll reach these platforms has yet to be confirmed, though judging by the playable demo that’s currently en route this summer, chances are it’ll be shaping up for either a Q4 2023, or an early 2024 launch.

As far as launch editions go, DREAMERS will only be available to purchase as a standard version. You can add that to your wishlist over on Steam here.

If you’re keen to stay in the loop and follow PlaySys’ journey as it continues to cross the t’s and dot the i’s, then be sure to check in with the official social feed here. In the meantime, we’ll be keeping an eye out should there be any updates in regards to the final launch date.
