Woohoo! We did it; the 100th Episode of the Community Spotlight is up! How awesome is that? It’s truly amazing to think of all the effort, all the blood, sweat and tears...and all the laughs, exhilaration and camaraderie too... that have gone into these 100 episodes over the past 4 years – both from the creators and the spotlight crews. We’ve had a blast over the past fortnight remembering some of the incredible levels featured since Episode 1 and if you fancy a trip down memory lane yourself (or just want to win the Trivia Quiz) then take a look at V0rtex’s amazing Spotlight Search Engine which is a treasure trove of every level spotlighted.
To help celebrate we’ve already launched the Trivia Quiz! but we have plenty of other awesome bonus features in store over the next couple of weeks. In fact we have just launched another contest for those who think they know their levels and have mad skillz at playing. Head on over to the Site Contest forums and check out our Tri-sack contest.
But back to the matter in hand! Without further ado, here’s the Big One, the 100th Community Spotlight packed with suitably awesome levels and seriously the levels do the 100th Episode proud; from stellar shooters to superb platformers and mind bending arcade games and puzzles, they end*the first 100 episodes with honour and set the bar for the next 100 episodes to live up to. ...byPublished on 11-25-2012 05:16 PM
Hello and welcome to Episode 99 of LBPCentral's Community Spotlight! We're truly excited over at Spotlight Central to see the beginning of:
A New Era! ! !
. . . erm, we split our post up a bit, did you notice?
Since the arrival of the Karting Spotlight (who are fitting in really well, in case you're wondering. They've really got the hang of their cake mixing abilities... Now they just need to perfect their icing skills) to our humble home, we decided that it would be better to keep things neat, and split it up a little!
On top of that we've been preparing for December the 9th, a date more momentous than Christmas and Thanksgiving all wrapped up into one.
What happens on December the 9th? Well, if you don't already know, then you'll just have to wait and see.
On that curious note, let's get on with the spotlight! ...byPublished on 11-18-2012 06:57 PM
Interview conducted by rialrees
There are some names in the LittleBigPlanet community which you can mention in any forum (yes, I'm big on name-dropping!), and pretty much everyone would know who you were talking about. Mnniska is one of them.
I could wax lyrical all evening about his creations, his ideas, the presence he has as a member of the community, but let's face it – I don't need to. You probably already know all about him!
We may as well not even bother having this interview then!
The Rocket fuel I scoffed for breakfast probably helped too...
All right, this one isn’t really a question, but if you would be so kind, please list the levels you’ve published to date and any statistics you’d like to share with us, i.e. plays, hearts, how many rocket animals per level, etc. Whatever you feel like sharing.
Adventure t(h)rough the evil factory!
(A platformer set in an evil factory that sort of wants to murder you. It has no plot, only murderous surroundings.)
A Level in Create Mode
(Colourful puzzle level where you had to copy the level to your moon and play it in create mode. It got an mm pick about six months after it’s release. Waha!)

Epic Story Time
Interview conducted by Taffey
amazingflyingpoo. Who IS this guy anyway? I remember the first time I noticed him lurking around one of the LittleBigPlanet community forums. I thought to myself, "With a name like that, he's either a genius or completely out of his mind. Either way, I'd better check out some of his levels." Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought that, because his levels have always been incredibly popular. When you load up an amazingflyingpoo creation, you are guaranteed a feature-length experience. His well-developed stories and clever gameplay mechanics make you feel less like you're playing a level and more like you're playing an entire game. ...byPublished on 10-14-2012 07:52 PM
Welcome to the latest and greatest edition of the Community Spotlight! It's a big one this month as we now feature - drum roll please - the first batch of LBP Vita Spotlights. In addition, we're excited to welcome OriginalCreator to the crew to help us play through all of those new and exciting Vita levels! On a sadder note, we also say goodbye to the venerable PSP LBP as we will no longer be Spotlighting PSP levels. ...byPublished on 10-06-2012 10:41 PM
Wiki-Wiki-Wiki, He Da Boss
Interview conducted by rialrees
Let's play a little game of word association, shall we?
I say Holguin, you think: Cuba, Sun, Sea, Sand...
You say Holguin, I think: Boss Fights!
Yes, the creator who took his name from a holiday he took when he bought his PS3 (Talk about random.... *cough*) is now under the Creator Spotlight microscope! Holguin86 is the perfect example of someone who likes to push the envelope. Every level on his earth is a refreshing take on established concepts within gaming: The Time Warp, The Dungeon, The Survival Challenge, and of course... The Boss.
The man is infatuated with Boss fights - and each one he releases is even more challenging and intriguing than the last! But that's far from the only thing he has to offer - this creator is no one-trick pony. Imaginative settings and mind-blowing gameplay mechanics are a foregone conclusion when Holguin86 is involved.
How does he do it? It's a mystery to me. I suspect there may be some sort of voodoo practices at work. Perhaps involving fabric effigies of sackboy in front of a bubbling cauldron, heaped to the brim with jelly. I hope that my questioning will help me find the secret of this witchcraft... ...byPublished on 09-30-2012 06:15 PM
Welcome to the latest slice of mouth watering Showcase action! We’ve plenty for you to feast on from fantastic animation work to epic story series and awesome platforming.

Welcome one and all to the latest batch of freshly baked levels, hot from the Level Showcase, each one good enough to eat...sorry, must have been hanging around with Hubbie too much! Anyway, there’s a distinct feel of Autumn in the air in this Episode and even our first Halloween level of the season! So banish those back to school blues by booting up your PS3 and getting playing. Be sure to check out the nods too, as there are some real gems in that list.
Finally, a quick note that we are still accepting applications to join the Spotlight Crew so anyone who might be interested should pop over to this thread and check out the details. ...
