Back in 2008, Playstation 3’s LittleBigPlanettook took the world by storm with it’s innovative gameplay and ability to essentially create your own video game to share and challenge other players across the globe.
The plot of the game was pretty simple: you’re a tiny sock character who goes through a gigantic world, solving puzzles, uncovering secrets, and collecting points to buy more add-ons. The true beauty of the game lied with the ability to create full levels and set them loose in the real world for other people to try out and play. The game sold nearly 500,000 copies between the US and UK alone, making it one of the highest grossing PS3 games of all time.
Now, barely2 years later, Media Molocule is doing it again, but this time on an even bigger scale, with LittleBigPlanet 2.The new game boasts itself as a “Platform for Games” as opposed to the first being a platformer. The game is said to be 100% backwards compatible with the first game, giving players complete run of over 2 million user-created levels.
The game is on a much larger scale, and upgrades the customization feature nearly 4-fold. The ability to create non-playable AI characters in each of your custom levels is a new feature as well as millions of new additions to the original list of customizable options. Fans can now also compose their own score and play director with a new film-shooting feature.
