Denise (winner of this year’s Mochimochi Photo Contest) alerted me a while back to the cute knitted main character in LittleBigPlanet, the new PlayStation 3 video game by Sony. Coincidentally, my husband just reviewed the game for The Onion A.V. Club.


As John was working on his review, I got a sneak preview of the game (lucky me!), which is being released today. LittleBigPlanet has “craft” all over it—every character and object has a handmade look of something sewn, cut out of cardboard, or bolted together in the garage. Too fun!

The game’s biggest features are the tools that allow you to create your own levels for other players to try out. I haven’t attempted this myself yet, but it looks like a great challenge for crafty gamers.

  1. Wow. Just. . .wow. I saw the gameart at a GameStop and thought how great a game that would be. I’m lucky your post reminded me! :D :D

  2. That is so awesome! Finally there is a video game that has something realted to knitting. My brother will be amazed.

  3. Have you seen the little knitted version that a Raveler has done? Yesterday she’d also made a little hat for him! very, very cute…

  4. I myself can’t wait to have a copy of the game! I can’t wait to create an army of sackboys and sackgirls!

  5. Ah, PS3 explains why this one fell under my radar! Wii Play had the cow racing where the background was all knit and there are a few other games (mostly animal games) that involved at least some small amount of knitting. It’s good to see building getting a bigger focus in games!

  6. Oh man! I just played this game today, and it was so much fun! I also played Gears of War 2, but whatever… I liked Little Big Planet much more!
