Sack it to Me: Karting Creation Hands-On

Welcome our new LittleBigPlanet Karting Community Coordinator

Joining myself and Simon on the LittleBigPlanet Community Team, Michael from San Diego Studios will be here to help with the community management of Sackboy’s upcoming karting adventure, LittleBigPlanet Karting!


Michael may be better known to some of you as ConfusedCartman (Or as Valeview suggested should that be ConfusedKartman now?), the former administrator of the massively popular fansite.

Michael will be a great asset to the community team and should be able to help you with all your LittleBigPlanet Karting needs.

Game Jam: Community Creators Get Hands-On with LittleBigPlanet Karting

Not only do we have Michael joining the team, we both attended an event a couple of weeks ago where we gave a select group of LittleBigPlanet community creators an exclusive chance to check out LittleBigPlanet Karting’s Create Mode in its entirety. tsr13, who we recently featured on Sack it to Me with his Awesomesauce Pocket Moon Podcast, was one of those lucky guests and he’s taken the time to write up a lovely article to tell everyone about the game jam event and to give exclusive insight into LittleBigPlanet Karting’s Create Mode!

tsr13 says: “I pulled up a new level, picked the Gardens background, and began messing around with the landscape. I found the terrain deforming and sculpting tools to be intuitive and easy to work with, and it wasn’t long before I had something that looked a bit like a construction site. That inspired me to try my hand at creating some vehicles, and before long I had a half-decent dump truck and a crane in the middle of my site. Some random piles of explosives here and there, a few warning signs and presto! Instant industrial-themed battle arena. (Honestly though, it didn’t look quite right until the porta-potties went in.)”

To read more from tsr13 and to find out all about LittleBigPlanet Karting’s Create Mode, head on over to and read what our recent game jam guests had to say.
