Community Collab: Develop Debug Messages for Media Molecule Developers

    Hey Dreamers!

    While whisking away at creating Dreams, Media Molecule have been trying out new ways of reporting bugs in the game while developing it! To make it more fun, they are adding random messages that pop up to spice the mood and randomness that only happens when the game crashes!


    (look on the top right for an example!)

    Alex Evans himself has tasked the community with the challenge of coming up with awesome random quotes/comments/or messages that can also be added to pop up whenever the game crashes while testing!

    Imagine the look on a Molecule's face when the game crashes but they see a message by you!

    Some examples may be:

    "Always remember you are always unique, like nobody else."
    "Hey Alex stop picking your nose love Danny"

    The Rules:

    Post a message/quote/comment no more than 140 characters as a reply to this post or tweet with the hashtag #dreamsps4devquotes

    Please have your submission be appropriate! No mean words, swears, and all that jazz!

    Note: This is a surprise for the Media Molecule employees with Alex Evans helping out behind the scenes to put the messages in! Let's try to keep it that way!

    Let's do this!!

    "A cog in the machine has broken"
    "c-c-c-combo breaker!"
    "That wasn't supposed to happen..."
    "Just turn it on and off again, right?"
    "You zigged when you should have zagged"

    "It was like that when I found it!"

    "Let's fix this code with more code"


    "Have you tried blaming Carl?"

    "Can we fix it? Yes we can!"

    "There was a little Spanish flea..."

    "I just wanted your attention... sorry"

    "You again?"

    "Did you forget a semicolon?"

    "It looks like you're trying to break everything. Would you like some help with that?"

    "So, you come here often?"

    int num=0; while(num<100) {cout<<"Hello Bug \n"; num++;}

    "Knock knock. Who's there? Bug. Bug who? Here to bug you"

    "You can actually pinpoint the second when the code rips in half"

    Could uh.. could these be divided into several 140 character messages? Or I guess, pick a few favourites? :')
