Greetings, Sack-folk – another little update on community related fun from the world of LittleBigPlanet for you!
And firstly, something a little different… I’m guessing you might have heard the odd whisper and rumour that there’s a new game out this week by the name of Killzone 3. Now, it’s got a little less in the way of hessian sack, fluffy bunnies and jaunty hats compared to LBP, but it’s nevertheless a pretty awesome game.
To celebrate the launch of both Killzone 3 and LittleBigPlanet 2, SCE Netherlands and insidegamer.nl worked together on a cool competition, challenging players to create Killzone and Holland themed LittleBigPlanet levels. The results were some very fun, creative and slightly surreal levels that are well worth checking out! There is a ‘hub’ level that gives you access to all the levels created for the competition – go to lbp.me to add it to your queue ready for some weekend gaming.
It was awesome to see so many of you responding to James’ ‘Shameless Self-Promotion’ post last week with lbp.me links to your creations – it certainly gave many of us here lots to play with over the weekend! We’re working on a few ideas at the moment to help you guys promote your levels, and to ensure that the best get the attention they deserve – but in the meantime, I thought I’d start by giving a shout out to one level that I particularly enjoyed playing this week – Cogpunks by WillGuitarGuy. It’s a fun platforming level, with a very nicely executed and consistent visual style. Well worth checking out!
Finally – just a quick heads-up that over in the PlayStation community forums, they’re planning a fun little event based around the LittleBigMap for next week; check out the forums on Monday to find out more.
