About LittleBigPlanet

From the makers of Rag Doll Kung Fu comes LittleBigPlanet, a game developed by Media Molecule. First announced at GDC 2007, LittleBigPlanet is a platform game which takes accurate platforming environmental physics to a new level. The game features little rag doll people whom the player can take control of and customize how they wish. The players can interact, create and modify levels and environments in real time through the use of the characters they operate. The game takes full use of Sixaxis to control Sackboy, where you can control the characters limbs via the analogue sticks. A cross media bar menu can be brought up which allows players to add objects to the environment, such as trees, cogs and graffiti tags.
