Cyberpunk 1997 is a fantastic looking “demake” (totally a real word now) made entirely in Dreams.
Beautifully rendered in pure nostalgia, it really shows the power of Dreams as well as showing the hype surrounding Cyberpunk 2077’s release, when you have a demake stoking peoples anticipation to such a level.
Made by Youtuber Bearly Regal, we get a look at the market, but Bearly Regal also spends some time exploring the player’s apartment, complete with bed, microwave, computer and an armoury.
Future Cop, The Cop Who Can’t Be Stopped
Instead of playing a cyberpunk, Cyberpunk 1997 makes you a future cop during a period of martial law from a classic GTA perspective mixed with the first person vantage point.
The original demo ended before we got a look at the outside world, though a short clip at the end of the video teased what was beyond the megablock.
You can forget that, however, as Bearly Regal seems to be taking Cyberpunk 1997 in a different direction.
Instead of being first-person, leaving the market changes the perspective to a top-down view, reminiscent of the first two Grand Theft Autos.
There’s mention of lots of interactivity, missions, combat and the day-to-day work of being a cop and ruining everyone’s good time, though the only interaction shown off in the video is the act of driving the cop car.
Made Purely in Dreams
It’s still super-impressive, however, especially since Bearly Regal is still just using Dreams to create it Cyberpunk 1997.
Dreams is a game creation platform designed by Media Molecule, and while the official launch isn’t until next month, for a while now testers have been revealing their incredible creations.
Unfortunately, Dreams is a PS4 exclusive, at least for the first phase. Though if anyone remembers, Xbox did experiment with Project Spark (RIP).
Eventually, Media Molecule hopes to expand Dreams so creators can take stuff out of the platform and fool around with it using external tools, but for now everything has to be done on a PS4.
Still, it’s a cool thing to look at. Perhaps we’ll see similar efforts on PC when Cyberpunk 2077 releases in April to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.
