Introducing the community project: Hansel & Gretelbot

Hansel & Gretelbot is the creation of 12 community members, names you may well recognise: Wexfordian , Comphermc , Morgana25 , rtm223, Hilightnotes , xkappax , Catiers , GruntosUK , CENTURION24 , Jaeyden , Cuzfeeshe and steve_big_guns . A few months ago the Community Molecule set them a challenge - could they create a full game experience? Their own complete LBP Theme, using the new LBP2 tools to develop all original story, mini-games, bosses, cutscenes, music, and voices. The team was gathered, designs were drawn up, themes were picked and building began, now several months later they are very nearly ready to launch their project for you to play!

Annuncio LittleBigPlanet 2'

Radunatevi qui intorno, Pupazzi di pezza e ascoltate: abbiamo qualcosa da mostrarvi. Sedetevi, fate un bel respiro e guardate qua... è il nostro gioco, nuovo fiammante, LittleBigPlanet 2! Per realizzarlo c'è voluto molto tempo, molti sotterfugi e qualche strizzatina d'occhio, ma siamo incredibilmente felici di poter finalmente sollevare il sipario e così mostrarvi ciò a cui abbiamo lavorato in quest'ultimo anno o due. Insomma, non vediamo l'ora di raccontarvi tutto: ci sono così tanti nuovi strumenti e oggetti, qui dentro, che ti daranno il potere creativo definitivo e potrai costruire cose incredibili, non solo livelli enormemente migliorati, ma anche interi giochi. Vedrai!

‘Turbo! Pack’ Development Diary 6: ‘Hopping Mad’

Like all our other vehicles, the pogostick itself is a 3D object. There was quite a lot of head-scratching over the design to start with because obviously if we made one that was realistically proportioned then it would be about half the height of your Sackperson. In other words, ridiculously tiny. We think our solution works pretty well however! For something so simple, this level is a real success. It just goes to show that you don’t have to make something massively complicated for it to be fun! Remember though, that when decorating, less is sometimes more. Don’t go too crazy with your stickers and materials just because you can. Now, what are you waiting for? Hop to it!
