The Games Are Not Engaging
The games look good initially, but once you get passed the shock and awe that this was made by a fan, you see the lack of quality. The game is fun for about 10 minutes before you see the lack of depth and engagement. And these were comments about the top games on the platform.
It's for Hobbyists for a Reason
The tool does take some getting used to, and if you were really good at it, you should learn Unity or Unreal and get a job in the industry. It's just that simple in my mind.
Maybe eventually a truly easy game dev tool will come out, but for now, Jaffe doesn't think this is it.
There were a couple good analogies that he brought up that really sealed the deal with me.
Dreams is like an instrument, anyone can pick up and play it, but not many will become a star.
Dreams has been compared to the Youtube of video games. While millions of people watch low quality content on Youtube, people still shell out cash for blockbuster movies.
To end this editorial in a similar manner to Jaffe's video, if you are playing this game for fun and making games as a hobby, then by all means this is a great tool. Go have fun. However, it's unlikely to become an industry shattering tool.
