LittleBigPlanet 2 has a Rez inspired boss level, which actually designed by a construction worker. That was the designer’s job before being hired by Media Molecule.
Alex Evans, co-founder, messaged the LittleBigPlanet level maker over PSN after being impressed by his work. The to-be-employee was skeptical at first and deleted the message. Evans eventually got through and invited him to visit Media Molecule. “He showed up at our door holding a PS3,” Evans reminisced.
