Magnetic Mind, an entry in this Dream Build Play competition, is coming to Xbox LIVE. It features very LittleBigPlanet-like graphics and gameplay and some impressive physics. IndieGameBlog.net has the first trailer and screenshots.
This game looks horrible.
Well, I wouldn't say horrible... but LBP looked better, especially in the textures, and it seems like LBP is more fun and entertaining than this game.
It actually looks good... Dream Build Play.
This game looks good, in fact, it looks great, but when compared to a full retail and awesome game like LittleBigPlanet....it pales in comparison. I wish people would stop trying to compare small downlodable games to retail games. Isn't this the 2nd game on LIVE to be compared to LBP? The first one, I believe, it was that programming game for kids, which was really fun, but forgotten about.
Rip off much?. First they have a lbp theme song in their new "get Connected" xbox add and now they have a game where they are plainly "trying" to copy LBP? Wow! Its almost like microsoft is trying to make people think LBP is on their system.
It will actually do you some good to actually read the article,know what its actually about before you comment.This has absolutely nothing to do with Microsoft game studios.This game is an INDY game entrant into the Dream build play competition built using the XNA tool set.
ms didnt make it ... some dude made it with the xna tools ... its like the dishwasher: dead samurai... yeesh ... you guys really hate microsoft huh
Yea I know its a xna game which is on "xbox 360". Microsoft saw that this game is looking like lbp so they made the get connected add to fool people into thinking lbp is on their console. Look at my video post its obvious microsoft wishes they had LBP. I'm not making anything up.
me and my gf still play LBP all the time
First off this is a straight rip off of little big planet. This is what I was talking about, how developers aren't innovating anymore. It's just Ctrl C Ctrl V, or sequel after sequel after sequel. Now that being said I like the Z axis gameplay that they added, it gives the game more depth :) And I like how you can move object along with you to help progress through the game. But it makes it seem like this game is single player only which isn't good for these kinds of games. And for all of you hating on the game already, stop it, because if it was made by Media Molecule you'd be all over it as the next step in LBP. It may not be as graphically detailed as LBP, but graphics didn't make LBP what it was so end it.
obviously you havent seen the indie game channel because there are a lot of interesting games on there. Trine ..that game is cool . It`s simple to play too . Weapon of choice art stlye is great .
Do you know what is baffling?The fact that you can not shove your fanboyisim aside just for 5 minutes and commend the 3 talented guys that actually did this. The guys that made this obviously love LBP and the influence that game shows in their project.They have added their own elements to it like giving it a story but removing the user generated content in the hope of giving the game it's own unique identity.This game could end up winning, get published as a full XBLA title which in turn will give the devs a platform to move onto bigger and better projects. You might actually be looking at a small project from 3 guys that might one day, maybe in the next 10 years, make an exclusive or contribute in making an exclusive for Sony.
look at all the people who think anyone gives a [email protected] about LBP.
people could make their own content and tried to make gears of war. Microsoft may not allow for user generated content but they have user created games. Not bad for 3 guys and an indie game. It reminds me of LBP mets Rats(CS).
Apparently millions people cared about LBP to buy it..
"I remember all the hype for UT 3 on ps3 people could make their own content and tried to make gears of war." I have spent alot of time on the Epic Forums for UT3 for maps and mods, and so far I have only seen one person try to remake a map from Gears of War for UT3 (and he never finished it, he keeps saying he's working on it but it's been 2 years!). And you could only make your own content if you had the PC version, then you can cook it for PS3.
This games looks sloooow and booooring, i hope they don't expect to win any awards. It looks pretty enough for a game made by just 3 people but they really need to speed it up and add some fun. It looks like a puzzle game right now. Too bad the team couldn't be a little more creative when separating this game from it's inspiration.
Loooooooool :D That ia about everything I can say right now, lol.
Wow, that's a complete Fing rip off!
Fanboyism? Wtf are u talking about? First of all Last week we were presented with the lbp theme song in a xbox live add. This week we are presented with a xbox live xna game that is a blatant rip off of lbp. Ur the one Beeing the fanboy for sticking up for microsoft for no reason at all. It is obvious they are trying to decieve people and now we have two examples of this in 2 weeks. Why can't u people see this? It's not that hard. Also I give credit where credit is due and why would I give these guys credit for making a game with the exact same background setting and skateboard as in lbp. XNA game or not the people that made this obviously cant think for themselves!
I like the fact he can grab onto ledges but what i don't like it's toooooooo slooowwwww i hope they speed it up
This is an Xbox LIVE Indie game made by a very small team using XNA.
lol @ disagrees for stating the truth. It's a community game and looks really good for being a community game. Comparing it to LBP is neither fair or logical.
If they copies LBP then it is fair.
i dont think there's user creation in this ... from what i've read its story based only ... u play as a little kid who's shrunk in size and cant remember why or what happened in the last few days ... and besides ... ms is really strict about user created stuff on live anyway
yeah 3 ppl to be exact.. color me impressed.. i won't play it since i like blowing things up, but i still think its a phenomenal attempt. I certainly couldn't do it. ? does anyone else hate homonyms
I like this, LBP meets Micro Maniacs/Machines. Platforming looks good and the camera system seems quite capable, not sure about the little dude but I'd like to find out exactly why he's small. Very 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids'. Clearly inspired by LBP, but different enough to nowhere near a 'rip off', looks good, I'd play it.
mmmm it it actually looks good WOW
Fist day Purchase for me...
No creation aspects, ripoff the style and objects. I'll even be surprised if this game can be released without getting into legal trouble. They basically copied and pasted exact scenery and objects. I do like the water and rotating 90 degrees, but man....
yeah i dig the elevator music
Les copy very thing sony have .MS
Please dont go this direction bc we all know SONY has copied many thing from other gaming companies.
This is an indie game built on XNA...
Imitation is the best form of flattery. Now this may not be an MGS published game but you can easily tell that the devs were inspired by Media Molecule's cute and complex platformer.
Some of them can stand on par with xbla games, but there's a lot of really poor games. Hopefully the new rating system will allow for a better way to find the gems among the sea of junk.
that's kind of embarrsing an indie developer made a game that looks and probably plays better then LBP a game that happen to be made by proffesional developers LOL
Now im not saying that this game looks terrible, it actually looks quite impressive for an indie game. But to say that the devs of this game have done a better job just from seeing one gameplay video?? Im gonna have to say BS. I'd be really impressed if this game can even come close to the sheer amount of content that media molecule has provided for LBP, and the ability for users to upload their own levels adds even more content.
@poo-pie please stop...i really don't want to die laughing
How did you go from graphics and gameplay, to quantity of content. They seem unrelated to me.
I stated that, to say something like the dev team of this game has done a better job (both graphically and gameplay wise) than media molecule, just by seeing one gameplay video is absurd. The fact that i added the content side of LBP was just to add my two cents, I just made a statement, it wasn't intended as a counter argument: "I'd be really impressed if this game can even come close to the sheer amount of content that media molecule has provided for LBP, and the ability for users to upload their own levels adds even more content."
wow pootang you really need glasses. What a ripoff hope mm sues em for everything they have.
I waanntt new games not LBP
Doubt you own a 360...
But I doubt it has level editing/creating. Especially as a XBLA download title. That makes it LBP "inspiration" a bit sad. That MS recycling LBP associated music.
This is an Xbox LIVE Indie Game, not on XBLA and it doesn't have anything to do with Microsoft.
thats an indie game??? who made it ? damn these guys keep getting more talented as they come... this looks really good Edit: ok more info http://xboxindies.com/2009/... apparantly you play as a little kid who's shrunk in size and cant remember why or what happened to him... interesting
PS3 Droids will have a field day with this one. The game wasn't made by MS. Its just some indie game probably coming to Live arcade. I'm surprised to see more fanboys in the gamer zone than here.
i agree this is not going to end well :(
It's a shame the fanboys have got to it, I can't believe the rational people are in the Open Zone :-D. If people took two seconds to read the article or even look anywhere on the site they would know it is an Indie Game. *sigh*
then these people would have a [email protected] fit. It would be funny.
I have 2 Xbox and 1 ps3 , I not [email protected]@@ guy , I just don't like this games like LBP [email protected]@@ ok ,Looking very like LBP for mim
Wow, I am just speechless, it has been said many times that this is an indie game but people here do not read I guess, you folks always make yourselves look so foolish when you don't read, maybe you should put that 5th grade education to use and read before writing. Even going to the site they put up the disclaimer for N4G people, isn't that a bit embarrassing?
As for me, i am just going to pretend that they know the truth but just feel like trolling.But if it is that some of the people don't know that this is an indi game,built by only 5 people and currently an entrant in the Dream Build play competition, then they should be ashamed of their selves because their level of stupidity knows no boundaries. Anyway,some of the games that i have seen so far that are competing in this years Dream build play competition, look way better than majority of the XBLA games available.
I hate MS more and more by the minute...
you probably dont like reading too much either huh
LOL first using the LBP music in an AD and now this. Well, I guess anything to a get a sale.
i lulzed at the skate bit lol
killed it for me too
Well, MS can't ever do anything original. LBP was offered to them first and they refused thus when SONY makes it a success they want part of it. Same thing with Natal and even the 360. I bet the bots will love this.
He is an illiterate droid without a clue. Not unlike the rest of the droids in here. Reading is fundamental!
this has NOTHING to do with Microsoft, like, at all, jesus what is wrong with you morons?
I did read story and the only illiterate people on this site are the bots.
What game is original these days ? Nearly every games takes inspiration from other games. I guess MW2 is completely unoriginal as well if you put it that way. LBP opened up a new genre , be happy games are taking inspiration from it.
Indie or not it`s a ripoff and it`s on the 360
uh-oh!!!! M$ copycat!!!!!!!!! someone should sued on games!!! LBP> fake LBP ripoff!!!!
Original, something original please.
it look very horrible!!!!! that Bill Gates's house!!!????
