FPS-es? FPS-i? However you want to pluralise it, LittleBigPlanet Karting can do them, proving that United Front’s wheel-based spin off is every bit as powerful and flexible as the original game.
LittleBigPlanet Karting’s creative streak
Producer Jen Timms says the beta community has produced some “amazing examples”, including, “everything from minigames and arcade-style games that aren’t even karting at all”. The winner, though, was a full first person shooter.
Timms says, “This is a great example of the power of how these tools can combine to make completely different things. So yeah you can make a first-person shooter, your own custom objects – in this case it could be a hand with a gun – and then you have the ability to control the handling and physics of that.
Here’s where it gets technical: “You also have the ability to re-map buttons, or change your abilities, and then you can combine that with the Weaponator gadget that lets you make custom weapons. Then you can make bullets, or even like rainbow trails or flowers that come out the end of the gun – anything you want, and we can give you that power.”
I’m not sure if this is the level he’s talking about but it makes my head hurt just trying to work out how it’s done.
