Molyneux Deems LittleBigPlanet 'Most Important Creative Innovation' Of '08

Lionhead Studios main man, Peter Molyneux, has gushed once again about Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet. He's nominated the PlayStation 3 game as "the most important creative innovation of the last twelve months."

(We agree.)

Sir Molyneux has lauded the creative platformer before, telling the BBC the game was a product of "superb artistry and a fantastic marketing job by Sony." He did question LittleBigPlanet's release time frame though, so Pete's not without his criticism.

Molyneux's shout out to Media Molecule and Sony came via c&binet — the Creative and Business International Network — an organisation at which he's an "ambassador."

"LittleBigPlanet has outstanding creative vision," he said. "It's from a British start-up studio and is one of the defining titles on Japan's Sony PS3." The Britons do stick together.

    It is a lot more then that. The physics simulation is astounding. The machines you can build are just amazing. I am suprised anyone can describe this game as just a platformer with a level editor. Its a lot more than that.
