Little Big Planet

Little Big Planet is a new game for the PS3 from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe



It's main features are 1) The characters are made from sacking and 2) you can make your own levels and share them with other people. Everyone from their own advertising agency to the BBC's "Something for the weekend" have designed their own levels and then played around with them. The game provides an extensive range of flexible building blocks such as pipes, gears, cactus, rocks and houses that all interact with the physics in the game so that you can swing on ropes and roll around on drums.

As with Second Life and other similar games I imediately wondered if it will be used to make Machinima films. When I put the search into google the toolbar highlighted the fact that I was not the first the think of this idea, it's been discussed on Machinima.Com and there are already films up there on youtube.

LBP's intro explains that, as we rest & dream, all of our excess creative energy leaves us and floats skyward collecting with all of the other excess creative energy to form the Little Big Planet, a place just waiting to be explored.

I love the game ... to a point I want the PUPPET!!! if the makers would realize the money behind making the puppets and marketing change for clothes ... they would make a mint. I WANT ONE!!!

seriously thinking of making a few, and taking the pics and submitting them to the makers and see what kind of response I get.

You can buy the Sackboy from Firebox. They come in happy and angry versions.
