About DreamWorld

DreamWorld is an infinite game world, with unparalleled multiplayer capacity. Think Minecraft, created by generative AI, with all players together in one world.

Here's a video of our current gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIwL3vzt4XE&list=PL0x8zBFe0sRjHB3ddXPLh6g6gTEMNeuDg&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 a massive Sandbox MMO, with the game focused on User Creation and Socializing. You can think of our initial goal as creating a successor to Minecraft and World of Warcraft.
