About TAPgiles

Who Are You?

My name’s TAPgiles on the dreamiverse. So nice to meet you! You may have seen me around the internet Batman-swooping in to assist a citizen in need, dispensing knowledge and fixes, and then Batman-swooping out of there with nothing but a “TAPgiles~~” whispered on the wind.

What Does My Pledge Help Fund?

My full-time support of the Dreams community is only possible thanks to your kind donations. Because of these pledges, I can continue creating tutorials, helping people across the internet with their Dreams questions and requests for help, and providing documentation and resources for the community to use.

How Do You Help People?

Every day I search for people in need of Dreams help across many sites: Reddit, the InDreams forums, Twitter, Facebook, and a few community-run Dreams sites.

I release new Dreams tutorials every day to teach people how to use Dreams and how it works. While my tutorials tend to show how to make a specific thing in Dreams, I take the time to explain and demonstrate the gadgets and features I use as I go. My aim is that the viewer will be better able to customise the things I build in the tutorial, as well as use what they’ve learned in completely new ways.

I also write and maintain Dreams resources, hosted on my website tapgiles.com:

Full Dreams Documentation (tapgiles.com/docs): An 89,000 word document explaining how everything in Dreams works. As well as everything being documented in a clear and concise way, there are a number of features designed to help readers to use it as a reference document:
  • The same icons are shown for gadgets, settings, etc. as are used in the game itself, making it easier to spot the right one when looking something up.
  • Cross-references are linked to other parts of the documentation, to aid in understanding how it all comes together.
  • There are also links to specific timestamps in online videos so you can see a feature being used in-game, which helps what you just read to click into place. Some even have multiple video references for the same feature by different people, letting you choose a video by a creator you prefer to watch, where available.
Icons Guide (tapgiles.com/icons): A document showing and cross-referencing the over 1,000 Dreams icons available in the game.
  • Keywords to aid in searching the page for an icon you’re looking for.
  • Thousands of cross-references between icons to help finding similar icons and zero-in on the perfect one to fit your needs.

What Do I Get Out of This?

Tutorials are edited in big batches of around 30, and posted here for all my patrons to access as soon as the batch is done. Those tutorials are released a while later to the rest of the community as part of my daily tutorials, so for your pledge, you will get to watch any of those up to a month early. If you spot an upcoming tutorial you’re interested in, you don’t have to wait; you can make the lower-tier pledge and start watching that tutorial and many others right now!

I also post stream highlights—the raw footage recorded from Twitch streams which will later be turned into those tutorials. So if you’re willing to forgive the lack of editing, you can get to the content even faster.

You also get priority when asking questions. I’m super grateful for your support, and my DMs are always open. And if you send them through Patreon I’ll know you’re a supporter and move you to the head of the queue!

But what is Dreams?

Not sure what Dreams is? Let the developers of the game, Media Molecule, give you an idea from their Release trailer:


"Dreams" is a creative application and gaming platform for the PS4, created by the wonderful folks over at Media Molecule. It allows you to create anything you can... dream of. You can create works of art and sculpture, entire music compositions and live performances, animations and short films, or bring them all together and create entire games using the same tools.

There's a lot of depth and richness to the game, which lets you create whatever you put your mind to. But this also means there's a lot of lesser-known features and quick tricks that can really help you get to the more crazy abilities. That is what I aim to help people with ^^

Where else can I find you?

Reddit, mostly.
Indreams, a good chunk.
Twitch, regularly.
Youtube, daily.
Twitter, probably a little too much.

My DMs are always open!
