New LittleBigPlanet 2 “Featurette” - The Creatinator!

The Creatinator is a handy new power-up that lets you launch all kinds of useful objects - from water to fight fires to supercharged rockets. And that's just for starters - once you start tinkering in Create mode, the possibilities really open up. Just imagine a gadget that lets you launch streams of giant flaming cows to demolish walls - I'm sure that's something lots of you have been waiting to see for a long time...

New servers bring new features!

Cool Levels Cool Levels and Highest Rated now work slightly differently, and also need a little bit of time to settle down, so may look weird for a few days. The new servers allow us to tweak the way that Cool Levels works much faster than before, so we may play around with it a bit to get it working just the way we want it! MmPicks If you look under the new MmPicks Search category, you’ll find a selection of our favourite levels. The current selection has been taken from the Media Molecule blog, and we will be adding to it over time. Enjoy! Play Queues Queues are now active in LittleBigPlanet! When you find a cool level you...

LBPC PSP Creator Spotlight - Jeffcu28

Jeffcu28 Art can take many forms. It can be a beautiful painting, a thought-provoking sculpture, or a moving composition of music. It's not often one thinks of video games when the word "art" is brought up, even less so when it comes to handheld games. Enter Jeffcu28 : Calm, collected, well-spoken, and absolutely determined to change the world's mind about what form an artist's canvas might take. Since the release of LittleBigPlanet PSP in November 2009, Jeffcu28 has treated us to some of the most incredible and varied levels we could possibly imagine. We've bounded across giant flowers, watched a level being painted right before our little button eyes, and experienced the vengeful sadness of a love story gone terribly...

Kindred - A PSP Community Project

AceCreator , the official Sack Spokesperson for LBP PSP delivered this message about kindred he wished to pass along to you all... We can honestly say that we didn't see this coming; 'a collaborative project that introduces a brand new story level series to the PSP community.' Fantastic! Well, a project of this kind of scope and ambition deserves recognition, and is to be applauded. The very professional publicity image had already caught our eye here at Cambridge (nice work, dajdaj03), so we were intrigued, along with everyone else. That's quite a team you guys have assembled there: amazingflyingpoo , Arrestor/ Maboe84 , BlueBulletBill , CyberSora , Domick12 , Fastbro , jeffcu28 , Lleonard Pler/ Lleonard , salieri/ SalieriAAX ,...

LittleBigPlanet 2 Adventure Trailer

But LittleBigPlanet 2 isn’t just about creating – first and foremost, it’s about fun in all its forms. So aside from all of those creative tools, there’s a whole meaty Story Mode to explore. It’s an epic adventure through time and space, featuring awesome gameplay types, cool new power-ups, and a quirky cast of new characters. And on top of all of that, up to four players can get involved for maximum multiplayer merriment (thanks, Mr Thesaurus). So, take a peek at all of this by checking out the new ‘Adventure’ Trailer… There’s going to be lots more LittleBigPlanet news to come over the next few weeks (especially once GamesCom gets started). But I’ll be down there in the comments...

LBPC Creator Spotlights: Teebonsey, Jump_Button and Poms

Teebonesey If you could list your favorite thing about LittleBigPlanet, what would it be? My favorite thing is twofold - First is the ability to prize your brain open like a dusty old crate and let loose the wild beasties within in an unheard-of capacity. The second is the ability to actually experience in a strange way the untamed insides of so many other peoples' brains. Part of that experience is how the "LBP level" is its own medium and we've been able to explore it, to innovate with it, to invent with it. It's a microcosm of every major new art form. We are the first filmmakers, the first recorders of music, the first photographers, all in the shoebox...

LittleBigStore: Solstice Costume

The Solstice is when the tilt of the earth's axis will mean the northern hemisphere is the closest to the sun that it will get all year, making it hotter, making it summer time! In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history, a strange race of people called the Druids celebrated the when the sun was at its strongest - at midday on the Solstice - by performing mystical rites and combing their beards. We too shall celebrate the Solstice, by once again releasing this free costume, and once again re-using an old joke about just how long their beards are... Download the costume for free on the store this week!

LittleBigPlanet Community Game Jam

LittleBigPlanet Central has a full lowdown of the event , written by the very people who attended, well worth a read if you want to hear first hand about how all the new tools come together, and how they can be used to build your own games…. The first hour or so was chaos. Straight up. We literally didn't know where to begin. The vast selection of new tools, features, and options left us all flying off in different directions. Some of us messed with the circuit boards, some of us made little contraptions, while others explored the new materials, objects, stickers, and decorations to be used in LBP2. Others played with sackbots and switches and gravity controls. Meanwhile, the...

‘Turbo! Pack’ Development Diary 12: ‘Plane Stupid’

As with all the other vehicles we designed what the jump jet looked like before we designed the level, because its capabilities really defined what sort of gameplay we could use. This one took a little more thought than most of the others however. The first major decision we made was to build the jet from a front-on perspective, whereas all the other vehicles (barring the pogostick) are portrayed from the side. This was because it had to be very balanced in order to have as much control over flight as possible – the solution to this was to make it symmetrical, and enclose Sackboy in a small space so that his weight wouldn’t upset the balance as he moved...
