Not yet six months old, LittleBigPlanet has already passed its first major milestone.
LittleBigPlanet, which allows users to build their own levels and share them via PlayStation Network has reached nearly two million players since its launch in November 2008, where they, rather than developers, drive the experience by creating game content to share with others.
Each of LittleBigPlanet’s 725,000 user-generated levels is unique. Many are inspired by films, TV shows and games titles, including levels “LittleBigPlanet Takeshi’s Castle”, “LBP Jurassic Park” and “LBP-MotorStorm”, while others use in-game tools to show-off impressive engineering such as the “LittleBigCalculator”, circus-themed “Uncle Fritz’s Funhouse Frenzy” or LittleBigPlanet community favorite “Huge Pinball Machine”.
Some players create music levels, requiring the player to push buttons to create a song, while Japanese rock-pop group the Beat Crusaders recently developed their music video for Phantom Planet with LittleBigPlanet. Others play tribute to family and friends, hobbies and passions, while levels like “Illumina Garden” come only from the active imaginations.
