A beloved icon of the Playstation library ended this week as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, released on the Playstation 4. The game chronicles the final adventure of Nathan Drake as he sets out to find the lost pirate colony of Libertatia, in Madagascar. Media Molecule, the developers of the upcoming “Dreams” game, have used their game’s engine to draw a tribute to Drake.
“Dreams” is a sandbox game where players can control a small imp to create characters, manipulate objects, and more. In the game, players must take possession of characters in order to solve puzzles in each “dream” world. They can also use the game’s sandbox to make puzzles of their own.
Media Molecule had previously made two other games with a lot of emphasis placed on content generated by the users in the form of LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway. The games also gave a lot of prominence to yarn and scrap paper, respectively, and based their mechanics around it.
While “Dreams” doesn’t appear to be going that way, it was still nice of MM to make a tribute to the Uncharted series that way.
Uncharted has been a part of the Playstation family ever since 2007, and continued Naughty Dog’s unbroken streak of classic games. Each of the Uncharted games has gotten rave reviews, and Uncharted 4 continued this tradition by getting critical acclaim. Critics especially gave praise to the game’s story, graphics, and gameplay.
Previous games by Naughty Dog also included the Crash Bandicoot games (which even got a shout-out in Uncharted 4) and Jak and Daxter.
Now that Uncharted is finished, Naughty Dog can finally move on to The Last Of Us 2, the sequel to their other critically acclaimed game, The Last Of Us, which came out in 2013. Hopefully, as hard as it sounds, The Last Of Us 2 will top Uncharted 4 in every way when it releases.
