Dream Defenders on Hulu Plus

Thank you Hulu and all our US fans. You are like an angel to us. Always bringing us good news. Dream Defenders has been on Hulu for about a year. Though we have not much publicity and struggling to get notice among a sea of other series, Dream Defenders still manage to hit 1.4M views in less than a year according to the latest report we received this morning. That is amazing and encouraging. Thank you so much. Hope you can tell your friends about us and continue to give us your support.

Die Wächter der Träume

Die Wächter der Träume or Dream Defenders in German. Yes. It has finally reached Germany on SUPER RTL. Yeah!!!! We are so happy. We have come a long way.

China Market for Dream Defenders

China is indeed a very interesting market for us. There is so much to learn there. We have already started building some good relationships for distributions there. And has slowly educate ourselves to understand how their social media work. As you probably already know, most western social media platforms are blocked over there. So its time for us to learn from those in their 20s. ha ha. And hopefully through their social media, we can reach out to this massive group of new audience. Its very exciting and we will continue our effort in this global promotion journey.

Dream Defenders: Okto's Amazing Adventure

Thank you everyone for your kind support for the event. Glad everyone had fun. And thank you for being so patient in queuing up to an hour for the game. Hope you can tell your friends more about us. 

We definitely want to look at other ways to organise more activities for our fans. We are exploring potential possibilities with Science Centre and Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention on other activities. Next month, we will be holding another event at Bugis Junction. In that event, we will showcase more of the "Behind the Scenes" of Dream Defenders. Hope to see you there!

We had Yvonne and Elisha of Song & Danz playing the Dream Defenders Augmented Reality Game.

We have spider-man trying to win the game!

One of the kids who played managed to win the game! He was so happy that he strike a victory pose! "Yeah, I won!" We are very glad that the kids are so happy. This really brings meaning to our work.

About 30 minutes before the whole event was scheduled to end, the event helpers had to stop the queue from growing further due to time constrains. When it was 8pm and time to wrap up the day, there were still 12 kids in queue and they have already waited for more than an hour long. So we asked the event helpers to extend the time to let the last 12 kids play the game. We just couldn't see them go home with disappointment.

Few of the lucky kids got to visit our studio. See the happy faces? We love you too!

Thanks for supporting Dream Defenders! We'll fight the Momoks together!
