Anyone play Little Big Planet?
Normally I post only on thursdays, but today I wanted to share a level I made, entitled “The Necromancer.” It’s got style inspired by the old Castlevania games, Myst, and Little Big Planet’s handmade aesthetic.
But more than that, I wanted to try a challenge–Little Big Planet is a massive creative outlet, but a lot of what gets made there is simple stuff where the theme is “bomb survival,” “shark survival,” or “series of jumps.” Not exactly creativity run rampant, and there have even been levels that parody this fact. I wanted to make a level that was based on a concept that would force me to innovate. I asked my little sister and she suggested “raising the dead.” So, I made a level where you do just that.
Also, the level is hard, I’ll make no bones about that. There’s some unique challenges and tasks that really aren’t handed to you, so this level is aimed at hardcore gamers who weren’t all that challenged by most of the story mode (I found myself included in that group.). But if you like the sense of reward a challenge can bring, feel free to give it a shot. It took a looong time to make, I’ve been working on this level here and there over about two years.
I hope you enjoy it.
