LittleBigPlanet revolves around the player's control of a small character, known as a "Sackboy", in a variety of platforming levels. Though the game features a set of pre-built levels for the player to explore, the game's customisable nature is equally important, from altering the player's character and personal space, to building entirely new objects and levels (user-generated content), sharing and playing them online with other players as part of the LittleBigPlanet community. It was announced in March 2007, by Phil Harrison at the Game Developers Conference.
The game received critical acclaim from critics and has been praised for its presentation, including its graphics, physics, and audio, along with its gameplay and large array of customisable costumes and online features. Additional praise was given to its scope and future potential based on user-created content; minor criticism was reserved for specific elements of the gameplay mechanics and level creation facilities. LittleBigPlanet has won a number of awards. A PSP version of the game was released in November 2009, featuring new levels. The game was offered by Sony as a free download as part of their 'Welcome Back' program, following the PlayStation Network outage of 2011. A sequel, LittleBigPlanet 2 was released in 2011.
