Sony announced at GDC earlier this year this wonderful game that is being developed by Media
It is described on the Media Molecule site as follows:
The LittleBigPlanet experience starts with players learning about their character’s powers to interact physically with the environment. There are obstacles to explore, bits and pieces to collect and puzzles to solve – requiring a combination of brains and collaborative teamwork. As players begin to explore, their creative skills will grow and they will be ready to start creating and modifying their surroundings – the first step to sharing them with the whole community.
Characters have the power to move anything in this glued and stitched-together landscape; they have the power to design, shape and build both objects and entire locations for others to play.
And here is the video which shows how easy it is to create content in the gameworld, content that is instantly created in a multiplayer space (ala Second Life).
It looks so well designed, and it is interesting that it is designed for “communal creativity” right down to the gameworld (a world of hand-made characters and settings), but gee it is soooo cute. I want the soundtrack!
