Many dedicated fans use Dreams to bring their favorite games to life in their own unique way, and one Sonic fan uses it to create his own Chao Garden.
Kodoani.com – Dreams is a game created by Media Molecule that gives players the power to create anything they want with the game’s tools to their liking. Since the game’s release in 2020, fans have been eager to do whatever their hearts desire and share it with fans online. Many fan games have been spawned from the title, and one Sonic the Hedgehog fan used it to create the Chao Garden mini-game.

Making Dreams even adds a new feature to the concept by allowing players to control their Chao, with the creatures’ stats changing how they play in real time.
