Craftworld's costume creation is an expressive medium, whether you're a simplistic Susan or a complex Charles. A plethora of unique apparel awaits you before your very button eyes to make you a completely different Sackperson to any other Sackperson in the universe - so suit up, show off and stand out.
The problem with stories is that when they’re adapted in levels, you need to create workarounds for the story to become truly magical. Of course, this isn’t too much of a big deal, especially if you’re in the zone and your work is progressing without much conscious thought. However, there are points where the ‘zone’ of which we speak will dissipate and you’re left with half a level and no more thoughts. This is where the magic dies.
Telling a story is difficult. Making a story up from scratch is even more difficult. Making your story sound professional, well, that’s the killer here. If you want your level to flow and you don’t want your players aimlessly navigating obstacles with less meaning in the world than a forty-something man going through his midlife and existential crisis, then you’ll need to make a story to accompany your events.
Much like a cunning modern trend like the exponential sales of iOS devices and the tendency of hipsters to screw themselves over with pointless doodads which make them feel part of a minority when really their minorities make them part of a huge majority, a rising star emerges from the very edge of the universe, hurtling towards earth at incomprehensible speeds. This is LittleBigPlanet, the inner egos of the maniacs of Media Molecule.
What isn't there to say about Media Molecule? They're a fabulous team of innovative virtuosi whose main focus is to bring brilliantly-crafted games to the world from their very minds, to their fingertips, then some kind of indescribable process of filtering the dreams to our eyes, and then they settle within our hearts. Aw. Their amazingly talented crack team of genii push boundaries in creative games and manage to settle for something that nobody else has seen before, and they manage to do exactly that.
LittleBigPlanet manages to mature with age, much like fine wines and cheese. For a good few years, the threaded adventure has been nothing but adored by fanatics and critics alike. There's really no misunderstanding, then, as to why folk love the series of games with a tacit, passionate flambé.
LittleBigJourney is a collection of the masterworks that inhibit the Craftworld, piece by piece, making a stunning archive of the greatest feats that the manic and mysterious minds behind the frivolous and fancy franchise have to offer, while we take the backseat and offer satirical opinions of; and factual takes on; the pulsating, circulating news, fresh from the ovens of the one and only LittleBigPlanet.
