Media Molecule Toiling Away On Mysterious New Project
LittleBigPlanet is one of the year's best - Media Molecule just received Studio of the Year at the 2008 Video Game Awards - which means everyone should be excited to learn about their "secret project."
Back in August, Eurogamer spoke to Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans, who said at the time he wanted to do something as wow-inducing as the LBP unveiling at the Game Developer Conference in 2007. Here's his quote:
"I really want to be able to do another [Game Developer Conference 2007] reveal. A lot of people say to me that when we first did that Sony GDC reveal of LittleBigPlanet, that was a big shock - people didn't see it coming. I want to do another LittleBigPlanet reveal that people don't see coming. It's still LittleBigPlanet, but people will be saying, 'I thought it was this - now you're telling me it's this as well?!' That excites me hugely."
This got everyone talking, especially because Evans added with a game like LBP, "the number of directions and the breadth that you could take...while keeping it in a self-contained universe, is amazing." What more could they do with the game? What could they be planning? Well, as PlayStationLifestyle reports, Media Molecule says they've "been working hard recently getting the secret project ready," although a studio representative wouldn't clarify further. If you have any bright ideas, we'd be glad to hear them. To be honest, we have no idea what their next move might be...
