LittleBigPlanet - On this day

LittleBigPlanet - On this day

On this day, exactly 13 years ago, Sony added a new name to the exclusive catalog of its PlayStation platform - LittleBigPlanet. The creation of the British team MediaMolecule marked a turning point in the case of the PlayStation 3 console, which did not go very well in the first year and a half since its launch.

LittleBigPlanet was a platformer in which the ability to arrange characters, objects, and complete levels played an important role. It was a toy box as much as an interactive adventure in a world called Craftworld where the events were recounted by the famous British actor Stephen Fry.

The idea for the game was based on the Japanese film “Howl’s Moving Castle”, in the prototype stage it was called Craftworld (just like the world itself), and the main character was Mr. Yellowhead whose hands were controlled with the right analog stick and his legs with the left stick of the controller.

Later, this character was redesigned into a woolen Sackboy who, thanks to his sympathetic appearance and the ability to disguise himself in various other characters, soon became an icon of the new generation PlayStation.

The LittleBigPlanet series got two sequels and a separate game for the PlayStation Vita. In 2012, he received the spin-off title LittleBigPlanet Karting, and in 2014, the mobile game Run, Sackboy, Run followed. At the end of 2014, the third and last game in the series followed.

This year, LittleBigPlanet struggled with hackers. After months of battle at Sony, they decided to shut down the online segment of all LittleBigPlanet games except the trio. All the creations ever made for this series are now only available through this game.
