We're back, and do we have a spotlight for you! We've been treated to a veritable treasure trove of levels for this episode (Gasp! A bonus to the PSN downtime?), and we've found so many worthy of mention that you may have a hard time fitting all of them on your queue. Nevertheless, we urge you to squeeze them all in there (jump on top of them, if you have to) because they are all wonderful!

Greetings! Allow us to introduce ourselves: we are LBPCentral's new Contest Crew, and we're here to get your creative cogs turning with new monthly(ish) LBP contests! We've all been working hard to get this in motion, and we're excited to finally be able to announce it to the community!
Our goal for each contest is to provide you with opportunities to exercise your creativity, show off your work, and maybe win some prizes in the process. The folks at Mm tell us that there might be something... shiny in it for our winners as well, so you probably shouldn't miss out!
Anyways, enough talk. We'll be kicking things off with our first official contest: the "No-Floor Platformer" challenge. We've got more information on what it is and how to enter immediately below.
Thanks, and we look forward to your entry!
Leather-Monkey, Moleynator, Mother-Misty, OCK, OmegaSlayer, RockSauron, Shropshirelass, TehUberZac, Thegide, and Mr_T-Shirt.

Storytelling is not an especially easy thing to do, and neither is building an enjoyable level in LittleBigPlanet. Put the two tasks together and now you've got a real challenge. You have to weave just the right tapestry of story-driven interest, punctuate it with meaningful player interaction, maintain a believable environment, and deliver a worthwhile gaming experience all at the same time. When a story-driven level in LBP comes together it's really something to behold, and one of the true masters of the trade is kaiju_kid.
So, what's a kaiju level like? That's not a simple question to answer. It might be touching, insightful, and surprise you with its profound social commentary. Or, it might be completely and utterly absurd such as a factory specializing in cybernetic livestock or an intergalactic takeout service. And yet still, it might be about an entire world made out of poop. Oh, right - that's still the absurd option.
Well then, never mind the wordy descriptions. Let's see some of his work for ourselves.

Welcome to another delicious hamper of awesome levels, handpicked for you by the Spotlight Crew from LBPC's very own level showcase! And this time we have a new PS3 Spotlight layout - snazzy!
As you will have (or will soon have) noticed, the LBP.me integration implemented on the rest of the site has now been integrated specially here, with some clever (and rather complicated) BBCode. Clicking on the level badge icon will take you to the spotlighted level's LBP.me page, while clicking on the level's title should take you to the Level Showcase thread as usual. We would like to thank Aya042 and ConfusedCartman for helping with these changes, and hope you find them helpful. ...byPublished on 02-13-2011 06:24 PM

The year is 20XX and Dr. Dimo has taken over the world with his robot bosses. Do you have what it takes to stop the evil inventor and save the world from his mechanized creations? To be honest, probably not. Or at least not right away. ...byPublished on 02-02-2011 02:49 AM
Prince of Platforming
Interview conducted by amazingflyingpoo
LittleBigPlanet is more than just a game. It's a platform for telling stories, for creating art, and for making your ideas come to life. Let's not forget that it's also a particularly excellent platform for... well, platformers. Everybody loves a good old fashioned bubble-packed sidescroller, making a mad dash for the end of the level while jumping and swinging your way to the top of the scoreboard. When you're in the mood for no nonsense left-to-right action, you simply can't do much better than a level by VelcroJonze. The elegant, striking shapes and flowing gameplay of his masterpiece crea... *BOING* ...byPublished on 01-24-2011 04:36 AM
Yes, it's that time of the fortnight again folks! Floating towards you is another raft of awesome levels from the previous two weeks of the LBPC level showcase. This past week marked the release of LBP2, and we hope you're enjoying yourselves. Hopefully this load of levels will increase the amount of fun many times over! Or don't have LBP2 and got the blues? Just about all of these levels are playable in LBP1 and they are terrific!
However, please take note whether levels are only available in LBP2 or LBP1. If not otherwise stated, all levels are playable in both!
Enjoy! ...byPublished on 01-16-2011 02:17 AM

"Ungreth is a person. He likes some things and not others. He lives in a place and is of a certain age." This is what Ungreth uses to define himself in LBP. Beyond that, he is also great at creating an atmosphere of fear, humor, or frustration in his levels. He creates the mood and then allows the player's imagination to move him/her forward. Whether it's in an old diner, a depressing tenement, or on an alien spacecraft, Ungreth takes you there. And you believe it. ...
