Pia, Pia, Piano

"After I finished working on the game a couple of weeks ago (or, rather, after I was told to stop working on the game by a particularly-lethal-looking-kipper-brandishing Siobhan), I spent a couple of days making some audio contraptions. The piano level [below] is one if the fruits of my labours.

I must confess that it is totally impractical as a music making device within LBP - it certainly looks and sounds the part, but coordinating multiple sack folk to jump at the same time would take a lot of practice.

Version 1 there uses proximity switches to trigger the keys which in turn makes the piston attached to each key shrink down and tells the sound object to play at the same time. With Version 2 I plan to make the keys trigger by some other means (maybe magnetic key switches?) and have some giant hands which come down and play chords! That way I could have three buttons on top of the piano and, before you know it, you can play the entire back catalogue of Status Quo! AMAZING! But not built yet…"

OMG that's awesome! The possibilities with this game are endless!

Panthers3642d ago

This is becoming truer and truer every day. Amazing game.

The only thing that this game can't do is give you epilepsy - that's left for WipEout.

k2d3642d ago

Yeah, thats what we have WipEout for! I LOL'ed :D (playing it now)

Before I clicked on the comment section, I was thinking about typing the same exact comment you left about the possibilities of this game being endless.

Every video of LBP i see continues t just blow my mind

GiantEnemyLobster3642d ago

I'd rather get Piano lessons from a 90 year old lady than play Piano on a PlayStation 3. Sorry Sony.. yet again, you fail to attract me to buying a playstation 3.

PopEmUp3642d ago

attract droid by the way it's better to be without you

pixelsword3641d ago

and you're right, Canadian;the more I see this, the more I want it. I didn't think I would want this, between UT III's modding that I'm trying to learn, or the games that I want to play, but it's becoming more like I want this game because it's the perfect blend between the two.

im planning to create a gays on war 1.3 level.

dukadork3641d ago

remember that little beavis & buthead game where they would spit on people passing by from their class room?

we should make a LBP level called "poop-on-a-bot" where we'd be dumping brownies on n4g bots from roof tops LOL!
