Hey Sack-watchers! It’s time for the latest LittleBigPlanet 2 Featurette Trailer – this time we’re focusing on the ingenious technological might of the Controlinator!
This unassuming looking little device is probably the single most powerful tool in the LittleBigPlanet 2 creative arsenal, because it unlocks the possibilities of “direct control”. This means that rather than controlling Sackboy alone, it is now possible to directly control all kinds of vehicles and contraptions. Whether it’s a racing buggy or a flying bumblebee with built-in honey-powered artillery, you can tweak every aspect – from the controls used to operate it, to the ways that gravity and inertia affect its movement.
Now, you might think that tweaking inertia values isn’t for you (although believe me, it’s far more fun and approachable than it sounds!) – but even if you don’t feel like putting on your creative hat and harnessing the possibilities of the Controlinator yourself, you’re going to find plenty of levels created by other users that utilise it in fascinating ways – top-down racers, side-scrolling shooters, rhythm action multiplayer face-offs, and much more besides… It’s thanks to the Controlinator that we can truly say that in LittleBigPlanet 2, it’s not just about platform gaming anymore!
Check out the trailer for a peak at the possibilities…
