Hosted eventsEdit

Dream On ContestEdit

MetaFox began the first Dream On Contest on October 8, 2003. The next year the results were in and the contest was a success, due in large part to The GOAT Store, who agreed to publish the winners of the contest as commercial games.

Plans were put into motion to host the second Dream On Contest, as well as a second issue of the Dream On Magazine. The domain that hosted the first contest became an online news site to complement the magazine, and when the second Dream On Contest began on November 10, 2004 it was hosted by the Dream On website.

The Dream On website also hosted the third Dream On Contest when it began on November 10, 2005. Shortly afterward, the domain registration lapsed, and it was purchased by a cybersquatter.

MetaFox managed to regain the domain and brought Dream On back online on June 27, 2018. The Dream On contest was once again hosted by the Dream On website when the fourth iteration of the contest began on July 6, 2018.

The Dream On nameEdit

Dream On is also a series of official Dreamcast demo discs created by Sega and distributed via various magazines throughout Europe during the Dreamcast's official lifespan. The existence of the official Dream On companion disc is why the companion disc for the Dream On Magazine was titled The Sandman.
