EA Play Lets Families ‘Create’ Their Own Fun This Holiday Season

August 2, 2010 Written by Max Murray

EA Play announced today a new game that seems to be tailored to the audience of LittleBigPlanet. Dubbed ‘Create’, the game focuses on creative solutions to difficult problems. Giving players a multitude of tools to use, players will be able to effectively create and add to their own world as they solve the game’s most challenging problems and puzzles.

EA’s new adventure, Create, promises to deliver “imaginative gameplay challenges”, utilizing player’s creativity to unlock and solve puzzles. Players are given the tools to not only complete these colorful and  fun levels, but the ability to ‘create’ their very own levels, using intuitive brushes, models and pallets. Best of all, the in-game community feature allows you to upload your own levels so friends can try out your masterpieces! You’re challenged to Play Create and Share your… eerr wait no. Sorry that’s the LittleBigPlanet slogan. I don’t know how I confused that.

Harvey Elliott, VP and General Manager at EA Bright Light  explained more about Create’s family-friendly style, and how his studio came up with the idea:

“Create uses families’ imaginations to develop new ways to play together that are both fun and challenging. We wanted to design a game where the entire family can explore, decorate, and solve challenges where no solution is wrong and the only limit is the imagination.”

Create will be released in November on the Wii, XBox 360, PC and utilizing Move support on the PS3.

Now we’re not saying Create is some sort of clone, or a copy-cat version of LittleBigPlanet 2 in order to somehow, I don’t know, thwart sales of the spectacular, original title also scheduled for release at that time… Check out the debut trailer below and see for yourself how different it is:

……….. Actually, that’s exactly what we’re saying.
