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.

sunil2964d ago

It actually looks good... Dream Build Play.

Kamikaze1352964d ago

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.

talltony2964d ago

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.

green2964d ago

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.

ShabzS2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

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

talltony2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

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.

MikeGdaGod2964d ago

me and my gf still play LBP all the time

ABizzel12964d ago

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.

KionicWarlord2222964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

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 .

green2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

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.

Poopface the 2nd2964d ago

look at all the people who think anyone gives a [email protected] about LBP.

Poopface the 2nd2964d ago

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).

BrokenAnarchy2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

Apparently millions people cared about LBP to buy it..

STONEY42964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

"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.

FamilyGuy2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

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.

InfectedDK2964d ago

Loooooooool :D
That ia about everything I can say right now, lol.

ThanatosDMC2964d ago

Wow, that's a complete Fing rip off!

talltony2963d ago (Edited 2963d ago )

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!

Elvfam5112963d ago

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.

DelbertGrady2964d ago

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.

Panthers2964d ago

If they copies LBP then it is fair.

ShabzS2964d ago

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

Redgehammer2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

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.

zack612964d ago

mmmm it it actually looks good WOW

KoB4EMvPi2964d ago

Fist day Purchase for me...
