Media Molecule taking a break from LBP, working on new ideas
Media Molecule is apparently taking a break from the LittleBigPlanet world to work on something new, according to Studio Director Siobhan Reddy. Speaking at Gamelab 2011 in Barcelona, Reddy said: “We’re stepping away from LittleBigPlanet to focus on some new ideas,” writes Edge.
The news shouldn’t come as a huge shocker as the studio is responsible for two highly-creative and successful games that gives players near complete control over future content. We are still looking for that Move update, but it’s reassuring that we could see a completely new IP from a studio that created such an addictive and adorable platformer.
So what is next for Media Molecule? If you wanted to pitch them the perfect game, what would you suggest? A shooter? An RPG? Or, how about a post-apocalyptic-zombie rampage with a mix of base control, real-time strategy, Move-recognized dancing, and a dash of puzzles for good measure? If anyone could pull it off, I think Media Molecule would have the best shot; after all, LittleBigPlanet 2 is like every genre thrown into one cute little game.
