Students Win $1000 Using The Level Editor in LittleBigPlanet and ‘Making’ Shadow of the Colossus
In the endless amount of news for LittleBigPlanet, we bring you even more…again. ‘Parsons The New School for Design’ in New York City, for held a contest for five teams to construct the best level in Sony’s side scroller using the level editor. The winner of the project would receive a check worth $1000 and would be featured on the internet on all the gaming blogs. Of course they didn’t know about the second prize and frankly, we made it up.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to find the names of the winners but we do have their incredible level they created, thanks to the invention of video. The goal of the level was to have Sackboy walkthrough a belly of a beast that was said to be inspired by the PS2 game, Shadow of the Colossus. A game that also pitted a hero against enormous monsters — something obviously similar to the video above. While watching Sackboy go on his journey inside the body, you’ll see things like stomach acid fall and our favorite bag person needs to avoid it.
The most amazing thing about the video above is the fact — the students made the level using just the LBP editor, and get this, it only took them 24 hours! Thankfully soon, we’ll be able to make our own inspired video games come this October 21 when LittleBigPlanet is released in stores.
