LittleBigPlanet’s charming blend of handcrafted aesthetics and creative gameplay have been exclusively available on Sony PlayStation consoles for as long as the property has existed – until now. A group of LBP enthusiasts is building a new LittleBigPlanet adventure for PC, and it looks as charming as ever.
LittleBigPlanet Restitched is still in the early stages of development, but Trixel Creative, the group of developers building it, has put together a tidy little trailer to show off the alpha. There’s the adorable little Sackboy, naturally, and all the template-based building action you may remember from Media Molecule’s series of games – you plunk down some overlapping shapes and they form platforms and levels crafted from everyday materials like cardboard and thread.
Trixel Creative says it’s using official documentation on LittleBigPlanet’s logic and design in order to stay true to the LittleBigPlanet experience with Restitched, and once it’s done, the idea is to have it feel as “familiar and comfortable as possible” for fans of the series. However, the group is adding brand new materials, costumes, stickers, and objects – as well as new music created by the community – to the fan game.
