LittleBigPlanet producer admits game will be 'great way to recruit new designers'

How to get a job at Media Molecule: make LBP levels

Budding designers take note: if you want a job at Media Molecule, but don’t have yourself a Maths or animation degree, there might just be another way: by playing LittleBigPlanet.

Speaking to CVG at the Games Convention in Leipzig, LittleBigPlanet producer Pete Smith played down the idea of users charging for the levels they create – but hinted that other collaborations would be possible.

"If a user becomes known as being great at making levels, I don’t think we’d want to take his level and then charge people for it, because it’s free – that’s the whole premise of the game," he said.

"I think if we were gonna do that, we’d rather get the top ten guys and commission them to make some amazing stuff for us. But we’ll be watching it closely, because it’ll be a great way for us to recruit great new designers."
