Well, in Janurary I started a project called LittleBigPlanet Galaxy (LBPG). You could go to planets, explore space, do sidequests, etc.

Well, it eventually burned and crashed to the ground. LBPG was split into 4 parts, and by the time I got to the fourth part I really didn't like LBPG anymore and what little was done in Part 4 turned out horrible.

Well, with LBP2 coming out I decided I would do LittleBigPlanet Galaxy (now known as LittleBigGalaxy, or LBG) right. The main feature of the gameplay will still exist (teleporting to planets, exploring planet's surface, gathering items, etc.), but it will be enhanced and made of pure awesome. The design and story will also be totally different. It will be more colorful and the story will be more touching. If your still confused, imagine a mix between Super Mario Galaxy's gameplay and color, and Kingdom Hearts story.

So yeah, a complete rework of LittleBigPlanet Galaxy. Get excited! This will be the first project I do in LBP2 as well :)!

I think I remember someone saying that they saw a demonstration of Mm adjusting the gravity so Sackboy could walk on walls. That would be perfect!
Good luck!

Oh, yeah, gravity will make this really cool.

You could have some planets with super high gravity, and some with super low gravity..

I just pictured a scared looking Sackboy flying away with no control over it. :p

Ooh, flying sackboy. I may do that since the gameplay will focus more on space than last time (aka, you can use a menu to fast travel to planets, but all the planets are linked so you can walk, fly, fart, etc. to them)

OK, I got the main plot thought out.

A scientist (no name yet) has created a mechanical planet, however it starts to fall towards LittleBigPlanet (imagine the moon crashing into the Earth). The scientist (whos in his space ship up in space) refuses to destroy it due to the fact that the people of LBP always treated him badly, and he says that the sackpeople would destroy themselves anyways. You are sent to various planets to retrieve the missing pieces of the only thing that can save the sackpeople, The Crystal Heart.

Whatcha think?

I like the idea of the crystal heart thing, seems appropriate.

I would love to help, just a bit maybe. I have my own ideas that may be useful. ;p

Sounds like a good idea. Just a quick maybe useful thing that you haven't thought of, use the new 'linking levels' so you can have a HUD level and make that look great and colorful, and then different 'gateways' (Or however they're planning on connecting them) to lead of to different worlds. Like the Pod... only a floating sacboy head? lol


EDIT: Is HUD level the right word? I think it's hub or something... like the cantine in lego star wars.

They're MIGHT not be a hud, but there will be a planet selector (which serves as a world map) and the levels will be linked. And your little hero will ride around in a spaceship.

If you're doing this in LBP2, and if it's even possible, it'd be cool if you had a Sackbot sidekick along with you for many parts. You could have him help you to do some really cool puzzle ideas.

This is sounding neat. I've always wanted a Super Mario Galaxy level in LBP. I'd love to test them out for you when you start... maybe even help a bit ;)

Testudini

There may be a sackbot sidekick, maybe similiar to Kingdom Heart's way to handle party members (For some worlds you get a special party member to use), but it depends on its limits.

You mentioned Kingdom Hearts....

Broken dreams... of a project that never was....

Awsome will you let anyone beta test it?

Testudini

Dunno if theres gonna be a beta. I know atleast IM gonna test it, but there was gonna be a beta for the original Galaxy on LBP1, so I dunno

I'd love to help with this when little big planet 2 finaly reaches my shores, it sounds pretty cool I'll let you know that I prefer making cool little contraptions, space ships, tanks, planes, trains and what have you

More on the plot:

LittleBigPlanet has reached a new age as it finallys goes into the final frontier...space. Years go by, and alien planets with life are discovered. Everything is happy.
Meanwhile on LittleBigPlanet, creativity starts to run thin as the sackpeople choose exploring space over creating.
Eventually, creativity is rare on LittleBigPlanet, and in a panic, the sackpeople begin to the mine creativity from other planets.
A scientist believes that this will not lead to any good, and that the sackpeople will do something unforgivable. So he secretly creates a giant spaceship (Which looks like a small moon). Eventually, he secretly launches it up into the air, secretly. He then sends a message (secretly) to the president of LittleBigPlanet that he will crash the moon onto the surface of LittleBigPlanet (secretly..) if the creativity mining isnt stopped (secretly). The president refuses and sends smaller spaceships to destroy the 'mechanical moon'. However, nothing works and the giant spaceship starts to fall towards LittleBigPlanet. Your sent to recover the lost pieces of 'LittleBigPlanet's Heart', which is the only thing with enough power to destroy the giant moon.

Ooh. If you will, although we don't know each other, I could help. Checking my levels helps to decide to say NO now or half a year later. :D

hmmm, can i help? i need to practice my building skills anyways!

Well maybe I could help you? Idk I'm better with detail that anything else although I am starting to comprehend logic pretty well. Man I just have so many Ideas for this LBG lvl! I think that you could travel to planets using a interactivemap. Your in a mini space ship flying around through space (in top down view) you fly up to a planet and the planet is outlined in a color and The words "Would you like to land?" Appear and you choose eaither yes or no :) Sound good? ;)

My plan right now is in fact a map, though its the tradiontial side view not top down, though I MAY do your suggestion, since its so similiar to mine. :)

Also, I think I should add ANYONE can say their ideas, and if its a big enough one that I put into the game, Ill give you credit.

I just noticed that I completely murdered a whole bunch of words in that reply :\, and I'm not just looking to give ideas. I want to be part of the group that makes them.....if you would let me :)

OK, new plot time :D.

(This takes place 10 years after LittleBigPlanet has gone into space)
Theres an alien race who hates any newcoming astronauts from a race thats never been in space, because they believe 'Only a select few were suppose to be allowed into the never ending existance.'. Basically, they have a weird religion. However, one alien takes it way too far. He builds a giant mechanical moon and places it above LittleBigPlanet, so he can crash it into the planet's surface, destroying the planet, and most of the sackpeople! Your goal is to collect the scatted remains of 'The Heart', LittleBigPlanet's core which is the only thing that can stop the moon. Eventually, you find out that the alien has the last piece..

Im planning on having the alien redeem himself, a bonus solar system, and a 'what the fuuuu-' ending. :D

I have an idea for the story.

*Ahem*



*AHEEEMMM*



*ACK-HEM-EHHH*

--------------------------
Creativity in LBP has always come from multiple galaxies throughout the universe,
mostly from the Orb of Dreamers, also known as Earth. The Humans from Earth had
come up with almost everything imaginable, and so, they began to run short on their
own supply of creativity. And it turns out, alot of other universes are inspired by
Earth's creativity as well, so they faced the same problem. Without other galaxies'
creativity, LBP would not have creativity, and without creativity, LBP is nothing.
LBP is soon becoming drab, and is even losing it's color. No more light-hearted pinks
and baby blues are there to brighten up a sack's mood. Shades of black are the only colors
that exist anymore. Chaos insues. Time reaches it's breaking point.
The Rainbow Warriors, a group of the most creative sacks in LBP, set out on their own journey to
Earth and many other galaxies, hoping in a final attempt, to incourage the inhabinants to get back their creativity.

After all, it is said even something as little as a lil' sack's smile sparks creativity into anyones' mind who sees it.
-----------------------
Like it?

Testudini
06-23-2010, 03:01 AM
Hmm, I like it Pixelton. However Im not going to do it. But I might take elements from it. I was considering having the sackpeople lose their creativity since they became more interested in space.

Prince Pixelton
06-23-2010, 03:03 AM
Wouldn't space spark creativity? Seeing new planetoids, species of life, ect?

Testudini
06-23-2010, 03:06 AM
Well actually, my plan was since the goverment really wanted to explore space, and they couldnt afford it, they raised the taxes and the sackpeople started getting more angry and sad instead of happy and playful. In the beginning of the game, you walk through the biggest city on LittleBigPlanet. Its dull and depressing. And in the alien who built the moon's final speech he claims even though he commited a wrong, the sackpeople would destroy themself eventually.

Basically, Im gonna set up a setting where everything is as happy as it use to be. Everyones poor, homeless and crime rates are going up, etc.

OK, another plot update:
The sackpeople will still be creative. Instead, the alien race which the creator of the moon is part of is a very 'uncreative' race and hates everything creative. Its sorta hard to think of a reason the sackpeople wouldnt be creative. :p

Prince Pixelton
06-24-2010, 09:30 PM
Ok then, may I still use my own idea if you don't want to use it?

You don't really have to ask me :p. Go ahead!

What is the main object of transport?
Beside teleporting.
Like in KH they use a gummi ship.
In mass effect its a Starship.

Testudini
06-24-2010, 10:35 PM
A normal rocket ship, nothing too fancy.

(sorry for double post)

Well, I have finally developed SOME characters, all of which are major.

The player: Chances are Im not gonna be using a sackbot as the player. Barely anything will be revealed about ANYTHING relating to the player. So yeah. Thats that. Also, the player will be silent, like Mario, and not talk.

Harold: The player's friend. Will talk to you through a radio thats on you. Hes the comic relief.
Example: Say during a boss fight theres a horrible sound. Someone asks whats that and he says: "Thats the universal sound of 'Your Screwed!'"

Unnamed Character: Another one of your friends, will occasionally talk through the radio.

Scientist: A somewhat shy and empty headed scientist who created the moon that will destroy LittleBigPlanet.

More characters too come (hopefully)!
