Not much new really but there was the following info:

Glass is super slippery for sackboys.

Balloons were in one of the vids but from the sound of they are extremely easy to make.

Seems it was possible for the guy to make a Sackiroth (Sephiroth Sackboy)

Will be possible for a skilled creator to make a beatable, complex, very enjoyable level that is comparable to a level in 2D platformers on the market in 2 hours or less.

There is a hint at mouse and keyboard support.

Enjoy! :)

Glass is super slippery for sackboys.

Atleast it's not harmful like ice. Cool




Balloons were in one of the vids but from the sound of they are extremely easy to make.

Should be awesome. Might make a little hot air for my sackboy :)

That's just sweet! I wonder what other characters you can make you're sackboy look like?

Well, that's a good time length. Good to hear.




There is a hint at mouse and keyboard support.

Dont have a USB keyboard or stuff like that. Just planning to get a headset. But good info.

Usually, I'd be happy to have keyboard/mouse. But I'm not sure with LBP. It might actually be harder. That's quite an achievement.

Being able to make ballons is interesting. I was wondering if they would make use of the sky some way. Either with wind of some kind to push you along or raise you up to some where. A triggered wind jet would be nice too. Hopefully we will have some other flying machines made or least have the option to make them.

Mouse would be handy. Wouldn't use a keyboard for a console game other than for inputting text though

The balloons Ill use to carry the sackboy around or put faces on them and make donkey kong levels.

Carrying the sackboy around would be cool. You'd have to have a fan, though, to keep him going in the right direction.
