This Cake Ain’t a Lie : Portal Recreated in LittleBigPlanet 2

1 min read


I’m starting to wonder if there’s anything that can’t be done in Media Molecule’s upcoming Play.Screate.Share sequel LittleBigPlanet 2. The game’s still in beta, with a limited toolset, and already hosts a plethora of ingenious levels and recreations.

We’ve seen a Vietnam FPS, Street Fighter, Left 4 Dead, Flower, FL0w and even Pac-Man lovingly recreated using the LittleBigPlanet 2 engine; and now we have perennial favourite Portal – complete with cake. I’m actually flabbergasted at how extensive the sequel’s toolset is compared to the first game.  I think we really can stop calling it a game now, and rather refer to it as a game’s development kit.

I can’t overstate how excited I am to see people’s creativity unleashed when the game hits retail.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
