About DreamWorld

DreamWorld is the massive digital world where everyone creates together. Think Minecraft or Roblox, except one immersive social world.

Here's a video of our current gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWSoDd7wm-I&list=PL0x8zBFe0sRiBXnpPWiT_3Jn1HK_e3hWW&ab_channel=PlayDreamWorld

Look at the software that has fundamentally changed how people live: Search (Google), Social Networks (Facebook), Ecommerce (Amazon). Now think of what will come in the next 25. One of these monumental shifts will be the pervasiveness of the Digital World, and it is our goal to create it.

We believe this Digital World will rise out of the medium that's had the seeds of it for a while, Gaming. So we are building the largest MMO ever. Our gameplay revolves around Social and User Creation. To oversimplify, our initial goal is creating a successor to Minecraft and World of Warcraft.
