I'm writing a script for a movie I am going to make in LBP2 and I just can't resist sharing the first few scenes with you guys, there will probably be more scenes added to the start but for the time being here is what I've written. Enjoy.
The game starts looking like a usual, platforming LBP level. As the lines are being said Sackboy is seen platforming across a massive bridge with a sour feel to the surroundings as if something very bad is going to happen.
Gamer Ė Hey, my names Gamer. Well itís not really but thatís what I go by. If you want to know my real name itíll cost 20000 gamerpoints. Thatís the kind of guy I am. My life is a game and all the extras are DLC. You think youíre a gamer but youíre not. Until youíve been on a journey like mine youíre not a gamer. I suppose you want to know why I sound so downtrodden and moody. Well, this is a story of betrayal, horror and violence. The journey I am about to tell you started many years ago when I was just a boy. Just an innocent child taking his first steps into the world.
As the next lines are being said the sackboy stops
Offscreen Mother - JOSH YOUíRE DINNERS READY.
Gamer Ė pause and breaths a heavy sigh then sackboy starts again And with each step he knew more and more that destiny had intertwined him with the fate of the world. He knew.
As the next lines are being said sackboy gets put off by them and falls down a pit, falling for some time before he hits the bottom
Mother - JOSH COME ON ALREADY! IíVE MADE YOUR FAVOURITE. CHEESEBURGERS WITH BBQ SAUSE AND CURLY CHIPS WITH CHEESE AND A MOUNTAIN DUE.
Sackboy gets respawned at a save point back at the start of the bridge and starts the level again
Gamer - He knew that no matter what happened he had to overcome this evil that was brewing in.
Mother - JOSH IF YOU DONíT COME DOWN RIGHT NOW IíM THROWING IT OUT.
The game gets paused
Gamer Ė OH FOR KRATOS SAKE IíLL BE DOWN IN A MINUTE MUM I JUST NEED TO FINISH SOMETHING.
There is a transition from the game to Gamersí room. Gamer is sitting on a gaming chair infront of a massive tv with the platforming game visible on the tv. Gamer has his head turned towards the door which is closed
ONE MINUTE AND IíLL BE DOWN.
Gamer goes back to playing the video game and we can see it was him doing the voice over to a game he is playing. Gamer is aged 21 Ė 25.
Gamer - This evil that was brewing in the world of the chosen one. The world that was about to change and never be the.
Mother - WHATEVER YOUíRE DOING MAKE SURE TO CLEAN UP AND WASH YOUíRE HANDS WHEN YOUíRE FINISHED DOING WHATEVER IT IS YOUR DOING.
Gamer puts the controller down. Slowly gets up off his chair, switches his console off, walks slowly over to the door and grabs the handle. Just as it looks like he is about to open the door he turns his head and looks outward at the viewer with a very sarcastic and ****** off expression on his face. The next lines are said to the viewer
Gamer Ė Get over yourselves.
Gamer opens the door and walks out. The camera slowly zooms up to the gaming chair and a hand appears.
Morning and Gamersí alarm clock goes off and it is a well know video game tune (tetris or sonic). There has been a montage that is around 30 Ė 40 seconds of him going to sleep and time going really quickly. During this montage just for a split second there was a figure that appeared and disappeared, there should also be an instance where the whole screen goes red but you can still see everything and an instance where there is a complete blackout apart from a small pair of eyes very close to Gamer. Gamer wakes up, throws his alarm clock which bounced off the wall with a sonic type noise (or related to the alarm call) and hits him on the head.
Gamer - Every time. Next time Iím getting a Tetris clock, at least they disappear when you throw enough of them away.
Gamer gets up stretches and this is when the player sees that his thumbs are cut off. He stretches his arms in the air and the camera zooms in with very disturbing music. Gamer then walks to his console switches it on and looks for his controller, finds it sits down, drops the controller, picks it up and goes to play a game. He pauses, catches his breath and yawns, looks down, laughs nervously then goes back to bed (all the time looking at his hands) and tries to pull the covers over his head but canít because he has no thumbs. Gets up runs over to the console picks up the controller, drops it again, looks up checks hands and starts screaming. As soon as he starts screaming thereís a long transition from his room to the video game store.
At the video game store
Lucy - So, this game is for a console, which you usually play at you home and according to this sticker itís on special offer.
Customer just stares at her
Lucy - And I love playing it in my underwear.
Customer - Iíll take it.
Lucy - Oh, if youíre going to take this then...
Customer - Iíll take that too.
Lucy - Awesome, youíre a little cutie arenít you? Iíll put your order behind the till.
Lucy walks away from the person but he just stays there
Customer - I love you.
At this point Gamer runs into the shop, out of breath and the assistant manager of the store, Tim, is standing at the door.
Tim - Hey dude, man you killed the other night at Modern Militarily Shooter 7. I have never seen anyone streak like that. Have you seen they have announced the sequel? I canít wait, the graphics look 9% better than the last one.
Gamer - Yeah, thatís great. Is Lucy about? I have a sort of emergency.
Tim - Whatís wrong man? Someone sneak into your room in the middle of the night and cut your thumbs off without waking you up or something like that?
Gamer - Something like that yeah, realising what he just said why would something like that happen?
Tim - Dunno, just using it as an example. Oh, there was someone in here the other day asking about you.
Gamer - Asking about me?
Tim - Yeah, he kept on muttering under his breath. Something about insults to his eyes, small minded people and thumbs. He kind of looked like the art guy that lives in the big mansion just outside of town.
Gamer - Okay so Iím just going to go and phone the police about something that isnít this.
Tim Ė loud No quiet No, you canít phone the police. What if itís just a crazy old dude going barmy and trying to get through the day by moaning at video game boxes. If I was you, which I am not but if I was then I would go down to the house myself. It would be awful to phone the police on a crazy old art guy.
Gamer - pause So I should go down there, ring the doorbell and hope he doesnít have a shotgun.
Tim - Iím sure he wonít... Iíll say hello to Lucy for you.
Gamer - Well, I was thinking I could just say hello to her then...
Tim - No, you have to go now because... he is... moving, yeah moving.
Gamer Ė looking over at Lucy Well I suppose Lucy will be here when I get back. Tell her that Iíll call her later.
Tim - Will do buddy.
Gamer runs out the shop and Lucy comes over to the door
Lucy - Who was that?
Tim - No one. Just an annoying customer asking about the latest mascot franchise game. Could you restock Naughty Naughty JRPG for me?
Lucy - Sure thing boss.
Lucy goes away and Tim stands and looks out the door.
Tim - Forward goes the plan then.
