We've asked around Media Molecule HQ recently and can confirm that, yep, no one can believe it's been TEN YEARS since LittleBigPlanet launched!
This very first Media Molecule game built the foundations of our studio, kickstarted our journey in creative gaming and introduced us to so many of you lovely community members. We've heard from so many of you over the past few days about what LBP has meant to you and we're so honored that you've shared that with us. Thank you for all the kind words and for being part of the LBP adventure over the past 10 years!
So, a birthday demands a party, right? That's just what we have planned. We'll be live on Twitch Friday 2nd November at 5PM GMT for our LittleBigPlanet 10th Anniversary Stream! We'll (obviously) be having cake, talking to some of the Molecules who were here at the start of LBP and seeing what Designer Christophe Villedieu has created in Dreams as an homage to Sackboy's very first adventure...
As we continue to work on Dreams, our friends at Sumo Digital have been keeping the LBP adventures going and supporting the community. They've got birthday plans throughout the month of November to celebrate the big 1-0, so keep an eye on their Twitterand Facebook pages to see what they get up to!
Of course, you don't celebrate ten years without having a look back at what happened at the start of it all, so we've collected a few gems to share - like the very first introduction of LittleBigPlanet to the world at GDC 2007. Check out Mark and Alex show LBP for the first time and get all misty eyed, just like we are now:
And, we can go either further back and revisit the very FIRST iteration of LittleBigPlanet with the Mr Yellow Head demo below:
We'd love for you to celebrate your LBP memories with us, too! If you've got a memory or story to share, or perhaps an image of your very first creation, send them to us on Twitter or in the comments below! We'll read out some of our favourites during the livestream.
We hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane and plan to join us on the 2nd of November.
We celebrated Sackboy's big day with cake, champagne and Christophe's brilliant recreation of The Gardens! You can catch up with the video below.
