Without the kindness and enthusiasm of players LBP would be an empty wasteland of empty levels. This past year two players have played they're way into the hearts of many in the course of their search for LBN picks and Spotlights.

In a dramatic year filled the highs such as brilliant crown contests and the launch of the highly regarded LBN PICKS Hubs and lows such as the forum being hacked and the cool pages still being spammed...two members have demonstrated such selfless care for our little community.


Despite having a headache inducing educational workload one member stepped up in our darkest hour and spent valuable time in creating the glossy new site format and continues to provide support in his new role as the LBN technical admin.



Another member has proven to be a wonderful community role model here and on LBP. Always helpful, funny and willing to help others in any way he can, a highly regarded creator whose create skills earned him a prized contest crown. It is people such as these that make the forum and LBP such a heart warming experience.

#463895 Seasonal Spirits Crown Contest

Posted by EnochRoot on 01 November 2012 - 06:34 PM



As the rustling leaves and spooky spectacle of Halloween fades in the lengthening winter nights...
Cold winds and snowflakes herald the approach of Christmas festivities ahead!

But something else is emerging from the shadows!
A brand spanking new, sparkling, seasonal Crown contest for everyone to enjoy some CREATE-SHARE-PLAY fun!


Posted Image


As this is the first major Crown Contest to be co-hosted by two fun filled fan sites the winner will receive a shiny LBP crown to add to their Christmas decorations and two...yes TWO!! Exclusive in game winners pins!


- Creators are required to create an original, previously unpublished level of any genre combining all the best elements of the two seasonal celebrations. Halloween hobgoblins and happy elves, platforming pumpkins and partying penguins all come together to share the fun!

- The level must have gameplay/scoring elements.

- One level slot/thermo per entry. No level-linking of any kind. (Here's how to do this without losing your jaw-dropping visuals) ;)

- Originality is the name of the game. That means Nightmare Before Christmas or generic zombie survival levels will be sternly frowned upon! :Angrier:

- Register your participation [here] and publish your level between Friday 14th - Mon 17th December, including the prefix SSCC at the start of your level title.


Runner up prizes for players and some other surprises in store too!

Have fun and feel free to post any questions in this thread.





____________________________________________________________

Frequently Asked Questions
(more to come)


If I build a level with a friend, does my friend get a crown too?
The account on which the winning level is published gets the crown, but the two exclusive pins can be arranged for both you and your friends.

Is this contest for LBP Vita?
It's just for LBP2 (or LBP1) on the PS3. There will be some contests for Vita in the new year.

Are participants required to sign up on both sites?
No. You can register your participation in the contest here on LBN, or on LBPC, or on both sites if you feel like it.

Are short cutscene intros alright as long as they're not split through level links?
Yes, that would be fine.

Posted by EnochRoot on 12 May 2014 - 10:20 PM

b4_zpse4f1cfa0.gif

Months of creating by some of the finest creators on LBP....1000's of combined plays as community players take on challenge after challenge...weeks of deliberations by the judges....finally the result of the LEGENDARY SACKQUEST CROWN AND PS4 CONTEST can be revealed...

 

We have journeyed together, a happy band of questing comrades through lands diverse and adventures thrilling...explored castles and battled dragons..assumed the mantle of hero, ninja, child, gunslinger..all the guises LBP has to offer...we have encountered humour and hardship, heartbreak and loss, soul searching and salvation, mystery and madness...

 

As with any quest we have been changed simply by having the fortitude to face the challenge, learning new skills, pushing creative limits, forging new friendships and sharing experiences along the way in a true CREATE- SHARE-PLAY spirit.

 

 

 

 

and so the winner of LBPs 1st CROWN & PS4 CONTEST is...

Congratulations and thanks to all who took part creating and playing making the SACKQUEST a truly enjoyable and memorable LBP experience.

 

 

Look out for more contests and events including another chance to win a crown and PS4 later in the year

#485727 Little Big Pumpkin Carving Contest

Posted by EnochRoot on 28 November 2013 - 09:12 PM

..and along comes Enoch to open the thread and throw a little more light over what has come to pass!

 

Let me tell you a little story....

once upon a time there was very small  bunch of videogame fanatics...nutjobs, outcasts,dysfunctional weirdos  and internet forum novices who came together in search of advice and fun...united in their passion for a unique love of LBP. Some had tried the other bigger scary forums at the time and were discouraged by the harshness, discourtesy and elitism that ran rife among those sites. If you weren't part of certain clique or group you would soon find yourself ignored or abused.

So these guys started a small friendly site where they just goofed around having fun, sharing their LBP experiences..everyone was welcome to join in and make of the site what they wish...just as the original experience of LBP was supposed to be an evolving experience so was the site....if folks want to make a group, review thread or start some originlal fun then they could just go ahead and do it.

One of the first ways we decided to have some fun was to have little forum based create contests..always slightly off beat and fun...I remember the first was Wrestlefest! in which folks had to create levels around the theme of wrestling...not that serious just for fun. Over a period of years the membership grew larger and the contests have kept coming..many have been LBP firsts and some of the contest concepts and events have been the most original in the LBP universe...also some of the prizes have been too (anyone remember Spaffs underpants?!)...you can check the LBP wiki and see we have the longest, most distinguished list of events out there in the sackverse.

 

Back in the LBP1 days MM recognised we had a talent for organising these events and allowed us to be one of the sites to award the Rare Crown as a prize....since then we have successfully hosted many great crown contests and smaller little fun events including pod and costume, story writing and the original LBP Swapmeets. With LBP2 there was a change in operational structure and contest were put on a more formal basis with the sony community management team but we have have still maintained our great record of regular fun events and contests even though we are an unofficial site. Many of the winners and runner ups in the crown events aren't members or even friends of members...some have just joined to enter , won the prize and moved on, others have enjoyed the casual ,relaxed vibe and stayed. BUT one thing above all others that has been upheld from day one is the fairness and integrity of the judging of contests since day one! Take a look over all the previous contest threads before electing to make negative comments and you'll see the efforts to maintain impartiality and how the community has approved the outcomes again and again. Seriously  check the threads..all the threads in the contest section and then maybe you will see what the original forum founders intended in creating these contests....sackfolk from all over coming together to have fun and support each other in their creative endeavours, learning from each other, making friendships and and enjoying the results of each others imagination. This has always been the way it has been and always the way it should be.

Those who have issues with mods entering the contests have zero understanding what a mod is on this site....maybe on other sites they are all powerful police waving around their ban hammers but here they are janitors who voluntarily give hundreds of their hours every year to keep the place running, cleaning up mess, helping others who have questions....always a friendly source of help! just leave a message on any of their profiles and you'll see what nice people they truly are...one of the golden rules about selecting mods is if someone asks to be a mod they are probably not suited to be a mod.

Everyone everywhere is allowed to enter any of our contests and we go to great lengths to ensure friendships don't interfere with the judging process and the reception of the Crown contest winners among the LBP community at large speaks volumes at the integrity of the process.  The ridiculous comments about one of the lower ranking runner ups in a little for fun pumpkin decorating contest beggars belief..detracting from the splendid winner and great fun that was had by all. Once again I urge those who have little experience of the site to take the time to delve into the previous events and contest threads to get a grasp of what passes for acceptable conduct on the site but above all I urge folks to....

#474950 Introducing Site Supporter Group!

Posted by FlyingIrishMan on 09 March 2013 - 02:23 PM

Hello members! 

 

We have once again something new to announce for you guys. The title says it all, we have added a Site Supporters group along with the rest of the established user groups. 

With many of the other groups, you gain access by activity, friendliness, and a spirit of LittleBigNetwork. However with this group, you gain nearly instant access by supporting our site - In other words, donating.

 

Donations can be given in any amount appropriate in your condition. We don't require you to donate anything big, as every bit helps out with things. All donations are taken only to improve the interference of the forum, and paying for contest prizes along with many other costs to contribute to the general running aspects of the site such as huge server costs.

 

Now, members who donate will be given special perks only given to site supporters. 

Here is a basic list of all perks you will receive:

 

- Ability to change usernames (This feature will be disabled for non-donators from here on out)
- A "Site Supporters" badge. 
- Increased limit of Private Message storage - currently, you're given 50. Prior to donation, you can storage 250.
- Larger avatar/signature files.
- Private Chat members in the Chat room.

(This list is subject to change, new features may be added in the future)

 

 

The amount you would like to donate is entirely up to you. We're not forcing any donations, however they're very well appreciated when given.We understand many members here are young. Whether you donate 5 dollars or 50, every donation is well appreciated. Users who are not able to donate will still be able to use the site exactly as they can now, and will not be treated any differently, its just a way of saying thanks for our donations.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to drop a post/comment here and a member of our staff will be sure to get back to you. Otherwise, you can private message any one of us.

 

When you donate, PM myself, along with a screenshot of your payment - this is the quickest way to get upgraded to site supporter. You can wait until the logs are checked if you would prefer. 

 

We hope you guys like this new addition to the site, its just a way for us to thank members for donating, this feature has been in discussion for a few weeks, and we will continue trying to add new features in the future. I would like to give a special thanks to Schnuckelche for his help in organising this.

 

Thanking you all, enjoy.

 

If you have donated since the start of the year, PM me and I will upgrade your account.

 

PM me if you want you're a normal member and wish to have your name reverted back to normal as name changing will no longer be available to you. I will only be accepting requests for the next 48 hours.

Posted by Blackbeltnick95 on 05 March 2013 - 10:30 PM

Blackbeltnick95's entry

 

(*Note: I somehow made this costume dynamic. When ever Egbert grabs onto something with a lot of force, his feathers get all puffy and he turns into a big cotton ball, but you can still see his face perfectly. It's hilarious lol :P )

Name: Egbert

Hi! Egbert here!

 

Egbert is just your average Gallus gallus domesticus (chicken) who prefers to speak in the third person. He likes to play, create, and share just like every other sack person in the Little Big Universe. He’s just a simple friendly guy who likes to hang out with his peeps and have fun. He is super chill, but also a bit lazy, thus his extra weightage (Don’t tell him he looks hefty or else he’ll go berserk like the chickens from Legend of Zelda!) He likes all kinds of music, and his favorite food is… chicken, with hot sauce of course. Oh and he hates the “Why did the Chicken cross the road” joke. He finds it offensive.

 

Egbert’s goals if he wins Mascot Election 2013 is to provide fun levels he and LBN have brought to the sacklings of LittleBigPlanet through level hubs and various events. Vote for Egbert! Vote for Hot Wings! Vote for Play, Create, and Share!

#458025 LittleBigPlanetVita - My impressions

Posted by Trindall on 18 September 2012 - 04:20 PM

LittleBigPlanet Vita


I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of LittleBigPlanet Vita fromTarsier Studios and Double Eleven for quite some time, and like many of you I’ve purchased the PS Vita hardware just for the occasion. When the chance presented itself to write up my thoughts and impressions of the game for this forum, I leapt at the chance.

As some background on me, I’ve been playing LittleBigPlanet 1 since it was in public beta before it was released to retail. I been playing the series fairly constantly up through LBP2 and beyond. I love creating, playing exceptional levels and spending my days immersed in the various LittleBigPlanet forums with other members of the community.

So it is with this perspective that I hungrily dove into LittleBigPlanet Vita. My goals at the start were to compare and judge the game experience of the Story Levels, the challenge of the obstacles and bubble collection and then finally how create modes stacked up to the predecessors of the series.


Story levels: Not LittleBigPlanet Lite

Posted Image


I played the previous handheld iteration of LittleBigPlanet and while enjoyable it still felt distinctly smaller, different from the bigger console experience. The current generation of portable gaming devices has not helped improve my feelings that when you shrink the size of the gaming medium you also reduce the amount of immersion, grandiosity and longevity of the game.

LittleBigPlanet Vita is an interesting dichotomy between the enjoyable nature of LittleBigPlanet and the implementation and projection of the series onto the PS Vita hardware. As I played through the story levels I was struck time and time again by the ‘feeling’ of LittleBigPlanet that exuded from the set design, the joyful and off-beat humour, the cast of quirky characters and the return of all the familiar platforming tropes.

At the same time I was also bumping fingers against the differences in the feel and response of the Vita versus a dualshock controller as well as the inclusion of touch based gaming controls. However it didn’t take very long to come to terms with the layout and wrap my fingers around the additional control scheme such that the platform hardware didn’t get in the way of the LittleBigPlanet experience.

Rather than clutter up the game I felt just the opposite in sections, the additional features of the Vita added a new layer of complexity and challenge that I really enjoyed. The touch based controls didn’t ever get overused nor overly gimmicky and felt right at home with the flow of the level and the game as a whole.

The characters of the story mode were memorable though there seemed to be some recycling of the LittleBigPlanet 2 character archetypes, the egotistical bumbler, the wacky oddball, the sweet female and so on. There are some fresh new faces though with the dour clown Mrs. Sunshine being my favorite of the lot for her dry, gloomy, introspective and delusional persona.

The story mode ticks off all the LittleBigPlanet check boxes, inventive storyline, characters in peril, exotic locales, multiplayer coop sections, larger-than-life boss sequences and more platforming, challenges and unique layouts than you can shake a stick at.

Living on the PS Vita has in no way diminished the enjoyment, challenge and scale of the game.


All the platforming and challenges you can shake a stick at:

Posted Image


The progression and challenge curve is just as you’d expect with the tutorials starting out in the form of the first creature curator world belonging to Colonel Flounder. After that the introduction of new power ups and touch mechanics is measured and steady throughout the game and I never felt that the sequences were cluttered or dependent on too many different mechanics at once.

The levels throughout seem to be of mild to moderate difficulty and the added goals of 100% prize collection and acing all levels is still as tantalizing and difficult in spots as in previous LittleBigPlanet games.

I was happy with the diversity of different types of gameplay in LittleBigPlanet Vita and I never got bored or distracted by repetition. Even though I’ve not scratched the surface of all the mini and arcade games I have no doubt that the game engine is capable and the tool set is diverse enough to enable just about any game type that can be imagined.

I had a busy days, limited game time and a burning desire to jump straight into create mode to play around with all the shiny new toys. Despite all of this I still enjoyed the story mode quite a bit. I feel that it ranked above the story mode in LittleBigPlanet 1 and was a bit more refined in some aspects compared to the story outing in LittleBigPlanet 2.

The bottom line for me is that LittleBigPlanet Vita feels like an evolution and progression over LittleBigPlanet 2 rather than a shrunken slice of the previous title’s essence.


Create mode: The essence of LittleBigPlanet

Posted Image

After my first run through the story levels I jumped in to Create and started to wade through the tutorials. I love Stephen Fry and enjoy his talents and contribution to the series. But it was too much to sit through the 67 or so tutorials when I felt I had a very good grasp on nearly everything covered.

Thankfully the return of the “Unlock all tutorials’ button has graced the Vita counterpart and I was free to just visit the tutorials I wanted leaving others to be re-visited in case I ever stumbled into problems down the road.

My biggest concern going into Create was just how previously learned muscle memory would translate to the new control scheme on the Vita. With a few rapid, nearly unconscious twitches of my fingers on the dualshock controller I could change the grid size in LittleBigPlanet 2, I could switch to preview mode, flat mode, save the level, select the corner edit tool and so on and so on.

Just how would a person with the hundreds of hours of Create time over two Playstation bound LittleBigPlanet games make the transition to the smaller hardware and input screen of the Vita?

Unfortunately for this article I’m still puzzling that one out. What I can say is that the devil is in the details and that there is enough that is identical that any experienced creator can just jump right in. And there is enough devilish tid-bits that are different that any experienced creator cannot fail but to hit a few of them fairly quickly.

I do not suspect any LBP2 Create veteran can hit the Vita version at full speed in the way that nearly any LittleBigPlanet player will blaze into the Story levels will barely a hiccup. This isn’t unexpected however and I estimate, for myself, that it’ll take the first four to eight hours in create mode before I get comfortable and start teasing out the intricacies.

I’ve not found any glaring inadequacies in the Create mode implementation, only differences in approach and layout. The addition of the touch controls can greatly improve the fluidity of your create time once you get used to them. There are so many little tweaks, such as the ability to type in values manually rather than using a slider, that will delight long time creators. Despite needing to relearn the controls it is hard to not be excited about the possibilities.

A few issues that have caused annoyances so far:
  • The ordering of the tools in the pop-it, the power-ups, logic, item tweakers and so on are in a slightly different order than they are presented in the LittleBigPlanet 2 layout. It will take a little bit of time to learn the new order of items.
  • An unfortunate consequence of playing on the Vita is that the display screen is much smaller than I’m used to playing with in Create mode on the PS3. I find that I’m often squinting unintentionally and need to make sure that I’m at the right level to see all that I need to see and still be able to see the detail.
  • Sometimes the load times for copying levels, rewinding or similar actions takes a while. Longer than it seems it should but this may just be the differences in the hardware of the Vita and PS3.
The bottom line on create mode for me is that it will take some acclimation before I can really be comfortable. Somehow they’ve managed to get the experience and tools very close to the PS3 version while also adding in new tools, better methods to create and a ton of tiny improvements. None of the issues I’ve run up against has dulled my enthusiasm to tinker, build and create something that one day other people may play.


Play, Create and Share


Sharing levels and creations is the last of three pillars supporting the LittleBigPlanet philosophy. This is where all of you, the community, come into the picture and the reason that many of us are still playing LittleBigPlanet after all these years. As of the time of this article the online servers have not been enabled for the LittleBigPlanet Vita players so I couldn’t mess around with the online aspect of the game.

I’m just as anxious as anyone else to see how the sharing, downloading of games and management of the level system will be implemented over the initial roll-out phase of the game. I’m excited to see the tidal wave of levels that will come crashing into the imaginosphere and see what
trends emerge.

This is the most exciting time of any LittleBigPlanet release, the time when all the tools are fresh and the wonder and questions abound in equal measure. I look forward to see how the community will evolve and react to the game and to see the new directions we will go together.

Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven have done more with LittleBigPlanet Vita than just repackaging LittleBigPlanet 2. It is a loving creation by people who understand all the points that has made LittleBigPlanet the community and culture that it is.

LittleBigPlanet Vita contains new functionality, improvements over existing tools, exciting uses for the built in camera and touch controls, and above all the freedom to pick up and play it just about anywhere you find yourself.

#414233 A Heart a day...

Posted by EnochRoot on 17 June 2011 - 08:06 PM

Sometimes when you feel like you are drowning amid the dross of the cool pages, torn by tawdry toss of the trending levels or the questionable quality of some MM picks....a ray of light emerges. A level so good you want to tell others about it and drag your friends over to play it.

So here is a thread to recommend levels you've come across that merit attention, levels so good they instantly won a well deserved heart from you!

Please don't post more than one of your treasured hearted levels at once, try and nominate underplayed gems rather than over rated well known levels of dubious distinction.

My first nomination:http://lbp.me/v/09j28e

Gabriella: The Iron Nightmare

A level which combines great gameplay, visuals, story, atmosphere all done with the highest levels of artistry.

#494024 Swapmeet XI

Posted by mr moneypenny on 25 May 2014 - 08:11 PM

Looks like the time has come for the…

Moneypenny Awards


Today lead by the charming and somewhat creepy Edna Mürrisch!
d03ee6cd503a5a091a308dd176622fbc99981b64
(God, why did I sign up for this?) Thank you, and welcome! Today, we’ll award those levels out there which deserve some attention (Coincidentally being the same levels as the Swapmeet-participating ones). These will get prizes based on the level (and the moneypenny and c: o’s annual cultural budget of five dollars). I’ve bought a big bag of candy on the way here, so who’s ready for some awards! (Me neither, but let’s get this over and done with).

Best lbp1 Nostalgia:
Manor of the forgotten ones
by L-I-M-I
Judge’s motivation: Given the swapmeet entrants, L-I-M-I was a given winner for this title. He managed, with the limited tools of lbp1, make a level with both good gameplay and nice visuals (they improve over time; the start might need some more polishing).
Well, that was eerie, but I survived! I was going to give you one of those licorice skulls, but I forgot to buy one of those, so here’s a marshmallow!
Best Hidden Object Level
Smurfy’s hidden objects (road trip)
by Greensmurfy
Judge’s motivation: Once again a given winner. Not only has Greensmurfy managed to create a smooth-running mini-game with stunning visuals, he has also taken it one step further by letting the images respond to the found hidden objects. One very small advice is to check the cameras as the button guidance is not completely in view. Pink pin-worthy.
Haha, all objects found! You don’t stop Edna the Exceptional that easy! You seem to like hidden things, so here are some jellybeans I found under the couch pillow!
Most promising community Project
Samos the Playwright’s tale
by ZE-UNIT
Judge’s motivation: ZE-UNIT has proved that this project might go far. Good idea with the project. The visuals are good, though some parts of the level feel a bit empty. There was also a bit too much running; adding some more obstacles wouldn’t be a bad thing.
Phew, that was a long run, but it was worth it! It’s the Deku Tree! I’m starstrucked! Therefore, here’s a star-shaped chocolate piece!
Best Gravity-defying Ball
Master of Gravity
by Justjar95
Judge’s motivation: The judges never thought there would be any level ever deserving this title until Justjar95’s level was found. Great idea, smooth-running controls. If anything, a little more work on the visuals would make the experience even more enjoyable.
Whoa, am I dizzy! And how crowded it was inside that ball! And I who misunderstood the meaning of the title and came in high-heels! Ah well, here’s gumball!
The golden Donkey
Uncharted shenanigans: the not so great escape
by Arklon
Judge’s motivation: In honor of the great Don K, the Golden Donkey is awarded every year to the funniest movie. This was the movie. Great camera angles, good voice acting. The story was incredibly smart, though a little predictable sometimes. Fingers crossed for a sequel.
Well, you aren’t catching me laughing…heh…hoho…ahem. I couldn’t find a golden donkey in the attic, but I found some more candy! (it’s quite old).
Best adventure movie
Wrong parking on planet mars by Avundcv
Judge’s motivation: This movie offers both tension and many laughs. The voice acting was really good. The dancing in the end was a bit too long, but that’s just a tiny detail.
Wohoo, two movies in a row! I didn’t even need to leave the couch! Here’s some of my popcorn!
(Note: because of a long judging process and scandalous prizes at the local sweet shop, I’m now all out of candy. I’ll give away whatever I find here in the studio.)
Best abstract Art
Whale art by Yonder-land
Judge’s motivation: … [Judges on lunch].
Wow, the deepness! That big blob is obviously the Hindenburg, representing the fragility of everything, even the seemingly big and unstoppable! It is… Wait… It’s a whale?... Oh… Well, I can’t change the award, so here’s all my whole abstract art collection… A whale…
Most embarrassing level
Pigs and Pastry
by mr moneypenny
[Judges still on lunch]
Oh god, what is this? This person must be completely out of his mind. I’ll pretend I never saw this. Here’s some homework! Now go home and write “I’ll never express my feelings or thoughts in any media ever again” 500 times! In French!
Best Nintendo-influenced mini-game
Mario party 2: mini game bombs away
by Lbphart3
Judges motivation: Lbphart3 managed to [nom] create a mini-game with [gulp] just the right difficulty. Great visuals, you didn’t always die when you [slurp] landed in the water. Good work!
Oh those rude judges. I didn’t even permit you to take lunch during the awards! Ah well, here’s a towel I accidently brought home from a hotel!
Best space-themed level
Space oddity
by Funkystache
Judge’s motivation: With great and unique gameplay and lovely visuals, Funkystache was a given winner for this title. The very last part was a bit unclear what to do, but otherwise nothing to complain about. Good luck in the comp!
Wow, do I look good in astronaut suit! Perhaps I should check if there’s any modeling jobs at the space center! It was a bit sweaty tough, so here’s some deodorant! (I’m giving away everything I can find, really).
Best confusing level
Mood swing
by ONE-MAD-BUNNY
Judge’s motivation: ONE-MAD-BUNNY managed to use the confusion in his favor and created a level that’s incredibly entertaining to play. Good visuals, a big plus for all the secrets there was to be found. Good luck in the competition!
That butterfly reminded me of my sister! Except my sister never smiles (it goes in the family). Well, I’m a big fan of the level, so here’s a fan picture of moi!

(I really tried to smile)
Best Neon Creatures
Neon for Eons
by R-V-2-0-1-3
Judge’s motivation: Formal language aside, those creatures were epic! Overall great visuals, Good, fast-paced (too fast-paced sometimes?) platforming, cool music!
Gah! My head’s spinning around like after a romanticism-poetry marathon, and if that wasn’t enough, there’s monsters everywhere! Ah well, you get some of my sickness medicine!
Most frustrating level
Mir going me(n)tal
by Mirjanneke
Judges motivation: This was frustrating! Nice, simple visuals and good gameplay though. Still, the level could really need some more checkpoints!
First I spend hours to pass this level, and then, as a reward, my make-up gets destroyed?
6be828c41e7c7979b497c48a1c95c15effe30b14
Hmpf. Well, you should be happy you get anything (I put down hours on that make-up!). Here’s the soap I used to wash myself!
Most unfinished level
Communication breakdown
by Just_Tom_
Judge’s motivation: sorry, but this level will have to be played on a later occasion. None of the judges were able to play this, because of the required friend. Online friend, that is, not real friends, whom we have lots of! Don’t look at us that way!
Whoa, you’re trying to make me get social? Dream on! I’ll return though, when I have friends online. For now, here’s a tandem bike! (It’s missing its chain. And wheels.)
Coolest characters
Conan the barbarian –prologue
by THE-HOG-FLU-
Judge’s motivation: Was it this level that was supposed to get award or the hammer level? Anyways, great characters! Though this isn’t the judge’s kind of level (we’re more of the Hillbilly types), it’s impossible not to get amazed by that intro!
Oh, so barbaric! I prefer my romanticism poems! Here’s some tea to calm the nerves!
Best triology
The golden sack –the quest for the heart of LBP
by EnochRoot
Judges motivation: because of the extreme cowardness of the judges and their experiences of not following level’s recommendations (yes, we mean Tynz21’s CAN YOU FIND…?-levels!), the judges decided to change level. Overall great work! The levels are so Enoch-ish they can get, with satire around every turn and Enoch-style visuals. It’s a bit too much running from time to time, especially in the first level, but otherwise, nothing to complain about.
Hey, that inventor-guy looks rather hot! You think I’ve got a chance? My last boyfriend left after two hour of romanticism poetry marathon (wimp). Here’s my phone number!
Best special effects
Beyond the roots: reaching the secrets
by Bombird
Judge’s motivation: Stunning! Bombird’s got some really advanced stuff going on in there! Great visuals, good gameplay, sometimes too long cutscenes, but that’s of minor importance. Great work!
Alright, so I’m really short of stuff to give away by now. Here’s a… a… a… pen! Yes, take this pencil! This level was really creative, so I’m sure you can relate it to the level somehow by yourself.
Most immature level
Baby simulator
by KAIJU_KID
Judge’s motivation: Immatureness is not always a bad thing! This level was actually really well done, though the visuals could have used some more work at times. Funny, it’s always amusing to destroy stuff.
That baby reminds me of my sister’s daughter! I’m never babysitting her again! Well, I’ve still got some diapers from that time, so here you go!
Most relaxing level
Sunset in the savannah by Remy_-46
Judge’s motivation: even though this level came with exiting platforming, it still was the most relaxing to play in quite a while. Amazing scenery, great gameplay! Sometimes it was a bit unclear where to go; you never get too many arrows!
Hey, I did have some candy left! A chewing gum! I found it stuck under one of the studio’s tables. Here you go!
Hardest level
The hunger games lbp –sky bridge by Footlessyeti
Judges motivation: Wow, was THIS hard! It really got on your nerves sometimes. Still, the gameplay was well-done, and the visuals were really good! Some more checkpoints would have been nice though.
Hah…Hah…Yes! I made it! I beat the level! Too bad I haven’t got anything to give you except this big, shiny trophy in pure gold. Ah well, here you go, perhaps you’ll have more use of it than I’ve had.
Most sexiness
Edna Mûrrisch

Judge’s motivation: Seriously, sexy sack man? You let a 50-years-old culture worker beat you? You’ll have to try harder!
Yes! I got an award too! I give myself unlimited love, along with this 5000-dollar prize check I didn’t find until now! Congrats to me!

Well, that was all! Congratulations to everyone getting an award, now I’ll go to sleep, as soon as I’ve spent my 5000 dollars on romanticism poetry collections!
Good night!
