Welcome one and all to the 102nd Episode of the Community Spotlight featuring the brightest and best from the Level Showcase. This is a cracking episode, jam packed with fantastic levels – just the thing to get rid of those post-Christmas, end of holiday blues! So draw the curtains, grab a hot cocoa and settle down to a non-fattening feast of platforming, puzzling and general awesomeness.
We’re hoping to catch up with our hub publishing on StevenI’s return from holiday tomorrow, with the hub for the 100th Episode being up first, so watch this space!
Finally, there's no Karting Spotlight this week but never fear it will be back next episode with a bumper crop of levels! ...byPublished on 12-24-2012 01:38 AM
Welcome one and all to our Christmas Episode featuring all sorts of gifts and stocking fillers from the Level Showcase. As well as the statutory Christmas themed levels there are some great platformers, puzzlers and shooters to keep you entertained when you’ve had enough Christmas cheer...
The Crew wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and would like to thank the creators who have produced such amazing levels over the past year and make the Spotlight what it is. You guys rock!
A quick reminder that you still have time to enter our two 100th Episode contests: the Spotlight Trivia Quiz here and the Triplesack Contest here. Also keep a look out for our 100th and 101st level hubs which Hubbie should be publishing sometime...soon. He ate rather too many cookies during the 100th Episode celebrations and has had to lie down for a while in darkened room.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s crack open the champagne and get on with the Spotlight! ...byPublished on 12-16-2012 07:34 PM
In honour of the Community Spotlight Crew's 100th Episode,
the Creator Spotlight Crew is proud to present...
"Turning the Spotlight Around"
For those of you with fancy iPads and iPhones, here's the direct link to the video:
Who can believe that it's already been 100 episodes? Over 4 years ago, our beloved Community Spotlight first opened our eyes to the world of awesome LBP levels, posted right on your front doorstep, here at LittleBigPlanet Central!
Such a momentous occasion just cannot go uncelebrated. So we on the Creator Spotlight Crew thought it would be wonderful to hear a few words from behind the scenes – to speak to the Community Spotlight Crew themselves, and get an idea of what makes them tick.
So without further ado, I present your Crew Members, new and old!
Our heartfelt thanks to biorogue, Ccubbage, Clarie, fireblitz95, GruntosUK, Holguin86, Joey, Matt 82, Morgana25, Mr_Fusion, Shropshirelass, Taffey, TheAdipose, and WESFUN for agreeing to take part in this interview!

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 06:16 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 07:57 PM

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!)

Roll up, roll up for the mystery tour, the magical mystery tour around this fortnight’s Episode of the Spotlight, featuring another helping of awesome levels from the Showcase. Roll up, got everything you need, roll up for the mystery tour. Roll up, satisfaction guaranteed! Yep, tear yourselves away from LBPKarting and queue these wonderful levels – one of them even features a car!
On the subject of Karting, we have been recruiting new Spotlight members to be ready for the influx of amazing Karting levels we are confidently expecting. We are delighted to announce that WESFUN, Night Angel and fireblitz95 have joined the Crew and are raring to get going in next fortnight’s Episode. ...byPublished on 10-29-2012 01:09 AM

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. ...
