The ESRB has rated Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Dreams with a T rating, which is higher than some would expect given it is a Media Molecule project.

This is because of the nature of user generated content, oftentimes players make very mature levels instead of stuff aimed at kids. This makes rating the game a difficult decision, and they planned it before M but not for kids per say at E or E10+.

This is a game development utility in which players are given the tools to create a variety of games. Players use in-game templates to create different game genres, applying art, audio, music, and animation tools to the process. One template allows players to use a cartoony blaster to shoot boxes and other objects from a first-person perspective. Playable demos include games in which animal characters engage in third-person melee combat; characters use hammers and projectiles to attack fantastical enemies (e.g., bouncing heads, statues). The word “sh*t” appears in one of the demos.

Dreams launches on February 14th, 2020 on PS4. A PS VR version will come later down the line.
