In a recent interview with VG247
, Media Molecule co-founder Mark Healy talked about some of the big changes coming to LittleBigPlanet 2 --
not all of them were revealed in this morning's
action-packed, Passion Pit-infused
trailer. According to Healy, improving the "Play, Create, Share" pillars of the first game was a focus for the sequel. The first two will be bolstered by new creation tools like the Direct Control Seat and character AI, which allow you to modify the genre of your homespun creations.
The Share pillar will see the implementation of the web functionality teased last year
, suited to creating personalized websites for each of your in-game creations and making them easier to share with other players. Media Molecule will also streamline the stage-finding process with Level Links -- badges you can embed within your levels, which players can use to hop directly into another of your creations, or the next sequential level in your fully-formed game.
Finally, on the subject of Sony's motion controller, Healy said the potential to play the game using only the Move and Sub Controller "seems like a bit of a no-brainer." However, he added, "we're totally going to go to town on supporting that, but I don't think we will have the full functionality at launch." After watching this tech demo
, we're not sure we can wait for the Move's near-limitless capacity for Sackboy-griefing.
