EA's Create Has You Designing Your Own Puzzling Levels

Electronic Arts unveiled a new game this morning that seems to blend the best of LittleBigPlanet's level creation with Scribblenauts' imagination and puzzle solving.

Create, due out this November for the Mac, Playstation 3, PC, Wii and Xbox 360, has players creating levels, designing and solving puzzles in a free-form open world.

"Create uses families' imaginations to develop new ways to play together that are both fun and challenging," said Harvey Elliott, VP and General Manager at EA Bright Light. "We wanted to design a game where the entire family can explore, decorate, and solve challenges where no solution is wrong and the only limit is the imagination."

The game appears to be broken down into level-based challenges and open-world design spaces. The more levels a player completes, the more rewards, like brushes, tools, textures, props and animations, they unlock.

The PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac versions allow players to share any of their creations, solutions or challenges with the community through the console and also via the official Create website at www.create.ea.com. Friends can download and remix solutions and set challenges for other players to download and complete.

The PlayStation 3 version also supports the console's motion-detecting Move add-on.

Create for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC is developed by EA Bright Light.


    Looks like linerider on steroids...

    I don't have a PS3, or PSP, and LBP is the main game that's made me look at either machine (got a 360, Wii and DS). This *may* just fill that void.

    I'm at work at the moment so can't view the trailer. Is the gameplay 2D? If so, even more of an insta-purchase for me.

      I know this is a very short clip that really doesn't show much, but my first impression is "Poor mans Little Big Planet". I'm no Sony Fanboy (I own all current consoles and handhelds) but do yourself a favour and buy a PS3 and LBP2 later this year.

        I'll admit that even from the screenshots it looks like a poor man's LBP (really have to look at the trailer at home), but I don't really play games much nowadays anyways and am definitely not getting a new console (apart from possibly a 3DS - main reason is the battery in my current DS is dying, but then I could just get a replacement...). If I did it'd be a PSP (and an old one, not a Go).

        But back to the game - yes, I honestly expect nothing less than a poor man's LBP. It's going to be the equivalent of the old Klik n Play that I used to mess around with as a kid. But I'm okay with that, so long as I get it cheap (I rarely buy games brand-new nowadays) and it's got plenty of options to keep me busy.

        Reminds me - really must play some more Kodu (though I'm waiting for 360 wifi adaptors to become really cheap now the slim's out).
