Photos allow players to skip to unlisted scenes that have not been unlocked.
After several photos were taken by The_Tenia in my game, "rhythMm," I received thumbs from other players on a few individual scenes which are unlisted and set to "Always Invisible." These players most likely saw the photo notification in their following feed, and accessed the scene through that notification.
This is a problem because accessing these scenes directly means these players skipped the menu which requires you to choose between three difficulties.
This also means that stories can be easily spoiled. For example, in the attached video I was using an account which has not yet played "Art's Dream." I was able to skip directly to the final scene, "Home," simply by clicking a link in the photos.
I had a similar thing happen (dreamer thumbed up an unlisted scene) when I published a song that was contained in the scene. I've actually got a bunch more people having played just the scene than the dream itself!
> I got another bug:
the fact that ppl can recycle your stuff and use it as their own. If Im not mistaken, anyone can recycle anything.
That is not a bug. Dreams was designed with the express intent of allowing users to collaborate with each other, and reuse/remix each other's creations. That's the whole point of the game.
Yep, thought about this too, skipping is easy! I got another bug:
the fact that ppl can recycle your stuff and use it as their own. If Im not mistaken, anyone can recycle anything. The only thing that stops that is copyright claims.
