Level Type
Platformer. Multiplayer friendly.

Notes
After showing Foto a collection of gear based contraptions he soon convinced me they could be made into a level. Add in his excellent gameplay and visuals and we have liftoff!

Special Thanks
Thanks to my Co-creator Fotosynthesis1, was great fun working with you. Thanks to Velvet-Audio for the most excellent music. Thanks also to coasterfreak for some excellent GP input and ideas. Thanks to all those who help test and refine this beast.

dang. you guys worked it didn't you? this is utterly amazing. I've never seen so many moving parts in a level. you guys are geniuses. I loved the design of this level, everything ties in well together. The gameplay is solid and smooth throughout. Very fun to play and I'll be going back time and time again, I'm sure. Awesome job guys.

From my level comment:
"Yo, just to let you know I died twice at the final spring on the end due to,idk, invisible spikes or something. First time I flew up I died halfway, then after I respawned I walked to the right and got hit by spikes again."

The other major thing that bothered me was that not all the silver cranks(?) were lethal.
I touched one (on the left/right sides of the wall) earlier (and didn't die) before they were introduced.

Question: What % of this actually moves off the gears, and what % is faked?

The death mat you saw here was to prevent stragglers who missed the launcher in MP and it's timing and lifespan have been tweaked so should be better now.

Every contraption in the level is single power source and that motion is transferred thru the device via physics. The power source is normally a rotator, but the entire ending section with the matching racks is all powered by 2 pistons, one for each rack.

Loved it, I can't imagine how complicated it was to get all those cogs working perfectly. Great job! :D

Absolutely loved the design and visuals of this, shiny, sleek and classy, just beautifully made and a great example of how to make a level look fantastic with just a few tasty material combos. Great to play through too, I would have loved to have seen the Coginator exploited in a few more interesting ways, but a really wonderful level regardless. Nice work guys!

This level is just wonderful, I loved it. I'm looking forward to playing it again with friends and alone to try for a high score. It's fun to play and also fun just to look at! Great job fellas.

I was really enjoying the level until my daughter's radar kicked in. It became impossible to play with all the "ah's, look at that, why is...?, Mommy do it this way." (Plus hands in front of the t.v. showing me how she would do it.) lol
Will be playing again when it's quiet.
P.S. Love the little clocks and the sleek atmosphere.

My goodness! How do levels such as this sink down the forum unnoticed? It's a tragedy really. Everything was complex, fun, and imaginative. Complimenting the gameplay were the spot-on steampunk visuals. I honestly did not even feel like I was playing LBP. A whole game in itself. Wonderful job!

I played this level the other day it was a true blast to play. The sleek shiny clean look with the wonderful music that is stuck in my head lol made it that much more enjoyable to play, tho I do have 1 question tho.....How long did this wonderful looking level take? It seems like it took ages O_o

Judging from the comments and your description, I queued this pretty **** quick. Will give it a go later on.

Actually had people telling me I had to play this level lol!

So I did... And... I went from thinking really nice theme, clean but detailed at the same time. To - oh your really showing off here, to OH WHAT!! This is sickeningly good!!

A marvel, congrats!

Man, this level is ridiculously brilliant. The visuals looked spectacular thanks to great material choices and amazing cog obstacles. The gameplay is exhilarated with moving platforms and creatinator use. The music by Velvet--Audio fits really well in this level, too. This level really deserves to be spotlighted. Well done.
VISUALS: 5/5
SOUND: 5/5
GAMEPLAY: 5/5
OVERALL: A yay, heart and positive review.

Yeah congrats on the pick! Well worth it. The stage looks like it was pulled for the release copy of the game for being too good.

Hello Little Big Friends :)

Yesterday we had a lot of fun in Interkinetic by c_mckamay (http://lbp.me/v/8n03rx) together with cradle2grave (http://lbp.me/u/cradle2grave), chs121 (http://lbp.me/u/chs121) and roccogeorge08 (http://lbp.me/u/roccogeorge08)

This level is amazingly worked out. Its like you are in a clock.
I wish to put some self made photo's in here, but I have no clue how to get a photo from my PS3 into here... I might want to figure that one out for the next recommendation.

Go check it out urself when you are in the mood.

Regards,

Jeroen
