Get ready for a dose of nostalgia as we prepare to open up the lab all over again. Apparently, a video game based on Dexter’s Laboratory is coming our way.
For those who were hiding under a rock in the ’90s, they might’ve missed out on Cartoon Network’s critically acclaimed cartoon. Following the genius Dexter and his annoying sister Dee Dee, the show ran for four seasons and 78 episodes.
Despite Dexter’s Lab ending in 2003, one loyal fan has crafted his own game in honour of the show. Created by Culosoman, a snazzy YouTube video shows off how the game looks created in the Dreams engine.
Don’t be expecting a full-blown action-adventure title. Walking around Dexter’s house, you can’t do much apart from press triangle to interact with objects and change the pint-sized inventor’s impression. Still, there’s plenty of fun to be had AND you get to meet Dexter’s mum.
The environment has been created in great detail, and there’s even a nod to Dexter’s rival. If you look closely enough, you can see Mandark’s lab lurking in the background. Inside the lab, fans will be able to spot the ginormous Robo-Dexo 2000. While only the foot opens for now, here’s hoping you’ll be able to pilot it one day.
Finally, Dexter’s computer screen confirms there aren’t any missions to undergo just yet. That being said, Culosoman is looking at expanding the game to make it a playable adventure in the near future.
Of course, this isn’t the first game we’ve seen based on Dexter’s Lab. There have been six games released, ranging from the Game Boy Color’s Dexter’s Laboratory: Robot Rampage to PlayStation’s Dexter’s Laboratory: Mandark’s Lab?.
Created by Media Molecule, Dreams is a sandbox game where gamers can create their own content. Putting a focus on the ability to “play, create and share”, it looks like Dreams is only just scratching the surface. Imagine what other cult classics could find themselves brought to live in Dreams.
To be honest, I’d just like to see someone recreate The Simpsons: Hit & Run. As it stands, Dreams is now available in early access on the PS4 Store and costs $30.
