People like creating things and, before Minecraft came along and handed everyone their very own virtual LEGO set, Media Molecule were busy crafting a triple threat of games that simply handed a bunch of deep-yet-accessible, delightful creation tools over to an avid fanbase and said 'Go nuts!'
The result? Well, Media Molecule have announced that in the space of the last year, the LittleBigPlanet community - across LBP, LBP2 and LBP PSP - have created 2.5 million more levels, which means that in total, the number of user-generated levels has sailed past the six million mark.
Media Molecule were pretty happy about it to say the least, spreading the joy on Twitter:
6 Million levels! A Year ago this week we launched LBP2, since then you guys have made 2.5m levels - you are amazing! <3
