LittleBigPlanet Has 6 Million Downloadable Levels
People just love to make their own levels in LittleBigPlanet. I know this because Media Molecule has revealed that folks have made a whopping six million of them. I’m totally serious here. That’s a bunch of levels, I must say.
One of those levels is mine. That’s right, I only made one. I’m not much of a creator. I’m more of a guy who likes to mock other people’s creations. Yeah, screw you, man, and your crappy levels. Yeah, it turns out that most of the levels are kind of terrible.
What’s crazy is that the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 upped the ante. Since that game’s release last January, 2.5 million levels have been created. That sounds about right, because you can do a lot more with that game’s tools than the first game’s. That doesn’t mean the levels are better, though. People may make a cool-looking top-down RPG, but that doesn’t mean they know how to spell. And if you can’t spell, then your level sucks by default. Just saying.
Anyway, Media Molecule, congrats on making a game with mod tools so good that so many people use them. Good work.
