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...

LBP 3D would be awesome. Crash Bandicoot style.

Or having an independent LBP HOME.

I really can't believe the sales for this game. It is so much fun and feels so fresh. I guess people still don't get it yet...

Anything will be good enough for me!!! LBP!!

I have a feeling it will be LBP but with some new mechanics. (i.e. Making your own costumes and making it so your sackboys can have weapons and develop RPG style) This would give some awesome new mechanic tools to publishers of their own levels and give it depth. But as for it having to be announced... I have a feeling my prediction is wrong and it will be bigger than what I mentioned. Either way I am kind of excited.

Maybe it needs a built-in movie maker/recorder in this game for user created story levels or hell, just stuff to throw on youtube! ....Maybe boast a little to the Xbox fanboys! lol

LBP Kart Racing! If we can customize levels, why not tracks! I only want racing as a side thing though. Adventure is a must, and the idea on LBP 3D is a good one.

I want these sacks to have some sort of power ups too. If MM can pull off a mario type adventure game, then I'll be shocked!

ya a racer, how about (almost) every genre of games from platformer, rpg, racer to fighter, all in one game. That would be so sweet.
