View Full Version : Brand new Story Mode by Quinn! (Be Excited Please)

01-23-2011, 09:27 PM
I hope so.

I know my last story mode was a failure, but I've been quick to develop ideas for this one.

7 themes. All originally styled, but not necessarily chronological. The story is not yet decided, but I'll let you know that the first theme is based in the 1960s.

Please keep a close eye on this thread as I expect to update regularly. Want a sneak peek? Send an invite to my psn Quinn94Z

Oh yeah you talked about this in the chat! Really looking forward to it! :)

Send an invite to my pen Quinn94Z

Your pen? :p

Your pen? :p

I red that horribly wrong the first time I viewed this thread...

Good look Quinn, like Alec said, looking forward to it. :D

Update: More information

8 Main levels with original themes.
3-5 minigames
Cutscene levels.

Looking to hire Minigame creator:

Looking for someone to help brainstorm and create minigames. Please send a PM to me here if you are interested. I will also need to see if you have the skills.

I've been drawing ideas and hope to have a level out in a few weeks time.

I had been drawing Dr. Herbert Higginbotham and I got a sudden inspiration to draw him differently. The end result was Hereberts long lost twin brother, Henry. after that I drew to more members of "The Other Alliance", who were: Martin Feetfirst (Clive's overconfident ninja brother) and Elizabith Von Verbeeldinghosen (Victoria's Shallow cousin). Maybe The Alliance could send Sackboy around Craftworld to take care of the remaining Meanies, and along the way meets The Other Alliance, who need sackboy's help to get rid of the meanies, and cure them of their negative qualities. That's just my idea, I hope you like it :p

Yay! Your trying again! I liked the other story mode levels (well, the ones you had!) as much as normal story mode in LBP1, so Im interested in seeing in how this turned out! Which reminds me.... I need to add your new account! Youll have an invite soon!

but I'll let you know that the first theme is based in the 1960s.

Not really giving much at all here. Could be Cold war, Vietnam war, Appolo missions, Civil Rights movement, Kenedy assasination, Woodstock, ect. Lot happened in the 60's.

Exactly. To narrow your guess, get rid of any that you feel would never be in an mm happy-cheery story mode.

/gets excited

Cool! Sounds like a great idea :)
I know youve got creating skills so these should be really good when theyre out. Good luck :D

02-04-2011, 08:38 PM
The introduction is well underway. I hope that the introduction and level one will be released in about 3 weeks.
Screenshots coming soon.

Story also well developed.
Stay tuned if anyone can be bothered.

This sounds intriguing :)

Update: I'm trying to keep this as true to the format of mediamolecule's story as possible.
I'm trying to do this with
-An introduction that introduces you to contributors, basic gameplay refreshment and the story itself
-7 Individual themes
-7 Creator curators
-The creative style, layout and ingenuity that the story levels hold as their own. ie. Not realistic visuals but charming. much like mm. A mix of detail, simplicity and polish.
-2 to 3 Minigames off the beaten track.
- A final boss to blow yo socks of ( Mind that you wear your socks loosely while playing, and open a window)
-A story that has enough quirkiness and substance to not feel like a last second thought

I will however not be doing 3/5 levels a theme. Each theme will have 1 level (excluding level links)

Introduction- The Arcade Of Awesome &
Level 1- (Working title) Something about hippies protesting... Coming soon!

02-18-2011, 11:03 PM
i'm excited. i love polished levels that are on par with or better than story mode, and really nail the balance and ideas they have.

any input or help you want, i've got your back.

02-18-2011, 11:17 PM
Didn't even know you were doing this. :eek:

If there's anything you ever need help with, I can try to follow your crazy create rules. :p

I'm not a very good ideas person, but I can logic and visualize stuff on command, as long as I know what is needed. ;)

I can think of like, a bazillion curators though...

A monkey
A narwhal
A cthulhu
A clown (ORLY?)
A ghost
A cyborg
A dude with an afro
A troll

I don't think I've ever seen a Quadruple post! You can edit your post so that you don't need to post multiple times.
I'm happy enough to get the bumps! :p

I'm fine for a curator. I'll needa show you my redone version of that level. It's changed for the better, and about half built :)

02-27-2011, 08:25 PM
haha this sounds awesome :) im actually putting together a little series of levels myself which are co-incidentally 60s psychedelic hippie themed too. I cant get on psn at the mo but when I publish mine at easter it'll be great to compare levels and seeing eachother's interpretations of such a great time period (design wise i mean :P ) Althogh mine's about 4 levels and a side-level, it has only a loose story to go alon with it :) make sure to keep us all posted, id love to see some work in progress screenshots!

02-28-2011, 08:56 PM
Judging by the quality of your previous story mode attempt, I'm very, VERY excited for this!

03-19-2011, 01:52 PM
looking forward to this quinn:)
