Maxis: ‘Spore expansion can top Little Big Planet’

Posted by ballightning on January 24, 2009

Spore senior producer Morgan Roarty has been weighing up the similarities between the Maxis game and Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet, as well as their relative strengths.

Speaking to us at a recent EA event, Roarty contemplated whether LittleBigPlanet had stolen all of the hype surrounding user created game content in recent times.

“We’ve had plenty of noise on our day,” he said, later adding, “I was already at Maxis for a couple of years working on Spore before I heard about LittleBigPlanet so I don’t know if they were inspired by us.

“They don’t have anything near our numbers of things created,” he asserted, noting that around 200,000-250,000 creatures, buildings and vehicles are created daily by Spore players.

“I don’t think their base editors are as easily accessible as our editors, I think we really have that on them,” he continued.

    the spore exspansion CANNOT top LBP because the release date of spore ga has aggrivated so many people that they dont want to play it and LBP is one of the greatest games of ALL TIME…i like spore but and ga looks cool but the release date is a real turn off for many players…

      How can a release date determine how good a game is? LBP was delayed multiple times if a remember correctly, and so is nearly every game in existence. The original Spore was not really delayed, as for many of the early years they were trialling different things and testing them out.

        lbp is just a better game….and spore galactic adventures has been delayed sooooooooooooooooooooooooo many times for over A YEAR….maxis will need alot more exspansions to top LBP…

          You are still relating the game’s delay to the games gameplay, and they don’t mix. Spore wasn’t even out a year ago, it has not been delayed from any official date that Maxis set, on dates that distributors used. And how does a games delay time have anything to do with gameplay?

          it annoys people and turns them away from the game

    on a certaint website about spore and lbp, I dont remember its name, a comment said”lets see whats more complex a tiny little creature or a huge level. Duh! a huge level LBP is better than spore”

    I disagree, it is true that a level CAN be more complex than a creature they both can be really amazing. But since GA is coming out whats more complex a whole planet or a level. well i don’t really care.
