LittleBigBadguys: The enemies of LittleBigPlanet
LittleBigPlanet surprised us all at Gamers Day and wowed us again at E3 by showing off its "Create" aspect. Yet throughout all the platforming, teamwork and creative game design that we've been shown so far, nobody has actually seen any enemies. Eventually people just assumed there wouldn't be any. However, EGM has appeared to prove this wrong.
In an interview with Media Molecule, the game's Senior Producer Pete Wilson said, "It's funny -- I don't think we actually mentioned this previously, but yes, we will certainly have enemies in the game; I think that's a fundamental part of good gameplay. They will range from little robots that simply roam from left to right to spectacularly complex beasts that pose quite a challenge. We've recently built this big, huge giant, and, as with other objects in the game, he's composed entirely of materials that you wouldn't expect. He's quite intimidating, and shows the possibility of what designers can create."
Hopefully we'll see these LittleBigBaddies at the Leipzig Games Convention or the Tokyo Game Show.
