Dream SMP

Alice Graham, Section Editor

The Dream SMP is a Minecraft server made on April 24, 2020, by Youtuber Dream, who now has 22 million subscribers. He started the server with his friends Sapnap and GeorgeNotFound. It started as a thing that they made to goof off on but has risen in popularity and size. It is a roleplaying server where they write out scripts to play out in the game.

The server has also helped other small Twitch streamers get a good following like the steamer RanbooLive has 2.7 million followers on Twitch after joining the SMP in November 2020. Also, tommyinnit, who has 5.3 million followers, or Tubbo, who has 3.5 million followers, both joined the server in July 2020. It has gone through 2 seasons of confrontation or wars. It has a lot of twists and turns that the viewers wouldn’t expect. It also has some add-on series that hook up to the main story like the Twitch streamer karljacobs made The Tales of the SMP where his character travels to different moments of time on the SMP.

It has mostly pulled in 12-16-year-olds when it comes to those watching the Dream SMP. A student at Fremont, Sadie St. Onge said, “I watch the dream SMP because it’s entertaining and the CCs [Content Creators] are funny and know how to joke.” There are lots more kids like her during a lore stream on the server. The highest it got was 600,000 plus people watching it live. More people are finding out and watching the Dream SMP. It has expanded to multiple countries. With the CCs being all over the globe, who knows how big it will get.
