Train2Game news: LittleBigPlanet passes 6 million community created levels

LittleBigPlanet 2Train2Game Blog readers may recall that we’re fond of LittleBigPlanet 2, particularly because it allows anyone to build and upload their own levels for other to play.

And as previously reported by The Train2Game Blog, there’s a huge range of creative levels that have been made by the LittleBigPlanet community.

Now Media Molecule has announced that across all of the LittleBigPlanet games, over 6 million levels have been created and uploaded by users.

“6 Million levels! A Year ago this week we launched LBP2, since then you guys have made 2.5m levels – you are amazing! <3” read the Tweet from Media Molecule.

The Train2Game Blog has previously reported that Media Molecule have hired game developers, after being impressed by the levels they’ve made using the community creation tools.

And in an interview with The Train2Game Blog last year, Volition’s Jameson Durrall recommended LittleBigPlanet  and LEGO games as a useful tool for anyone looking to be a game designer.

“But the thing I suggest for people first of all is grab one of the LEGO games, like LEGO Indiana Jones, it has a full level building system built right into it. And LittleBigPlanet, those are things you can get in there, learn to play and just recreate something you experienced to see what goes into that.” he said.
