Dreams: The 3rd Annual Impy Awards winners revealed

Find out which Media Molecule community superstars took home a coveted trophy at the third-ever Impy Awards.

Did you catch the 3rd Annual Impy Awards streaming live last night? If you did: thanks for tuning in! And our sincere apologies for subjecting you to The Connie Hat. You know the one.

Don’t worry if you couldn’t make it, though – we’ve popped a video of the show onto our YouTube channel for you to enjoy at your leisure. Do give it a look: alongside our celebration of some of the very best creations and moments from the past 12 months in Dreams, we had all sorts of special celebrity guests drop by to say hello!

It was, as ever, a delight and an honour to hand out trophies to this year’s victors. We’d like to say another big thank you to our wonderful expert guest judges – gathered together from across a variety of creative industries – for helping us with the incredibly difficult task of selecting a single worthy winner in each category. Thanks, too, to all of you who cast a vote in our four coMmunity-voted categories! Clearly, you have excellent taste – as you’ll see below.

What an incredible year in Dreams it’s been. If you’d like to check out any of these award-winning creations for yourself, you can simply boot up Dreams, and the front page of DreamSurfing will raise you aloft on a wave of curation magic and gently set you down in front of the relevant playlists… (Basically, we’ll show you where to point your imp.)

Oh, and our playable Impys hub is also still available to explore in-game  – it’s a stylish underground gallery space, featuring Mm-made art exhibits inspired by some of our favourite moments of coMmunity-led collaboration and creativity from throughout Dreams’ history. (We can’t believe it’s now been over two years since Dreams launched!) It’s packed with fun interactive doodads, unexpected secrets and cheeky coMmunity Easter eggs for those of you in the know.

And if you’d like even MORE Impys info, insights, developer tips and coMmunity tributes, you can still download our free magazine on indreams.me – The Impsider’s official companion to the 3rd Annual Impy Awards! 

All the love from us to you for helping us celebrate another fabulous year of creativity, collaboration and community spirit in Dreams. If you have any feedback about this year’s Impy Awards, then do let us know via the usual social channels – we do this every year for all of you, so your opinions and suggestions are always appreciated! (What do you mean, “Don’t ever show us The Connie Hat again”?)
