Little Big Planet 2
« on: 2011-01-23, 08:46:53 AM »
I suspect practically everyone with an interest in Scrolling Game Development Kit will also be very interested in Little Big Planet 2.  I thought the original Little Big Planet was pretty cool, but Little Big Planet 2 blows it away.  I just started playing it, looked through all the tutorials about creating your own levels and have come to the conclusion that Little Big Planet 2 must be the most amazing piece of software ever  ;D... or at least the most amazing game ever.  It now has a built-in music sequencer with all sorts of instruments so you can write your own music.  And it has virtual circuit boards and logic gates so you can embed all sorts of logic into a little virtual "chip" with inputs and outputs that you can attach to objects in the game to control them in complex ways.  And the "controlinator" allows you to map the inputs of the PS3 controller however you like to various controls in the game (on chips, for example), allowing you to create a wide variety of games with different kinds of input methods.  It looks like they have created facsimiles of space invaders, Super Mario, Sonic, Pong, Mortal Combat, Gauntlet, Lemmings, Car racing games, real time strategy games and more.
