The above video is of Massive Epic Raging Destruction (MERD), a first-person shooter game built using the game creation tools in Little Big Planet 2. As a guy who can barely grasp the idea of what’s possible with enough time, elbow grease and Media Molecule’s software, I can barely form words over this.
It looks a hell of a lot better than a lot of indie shooters made without the restrictions imposed by building within the framework afforded by Little Big Planet 2. Some of the camera shake effects would probably get hold pretty quick and the character is a lot slower than what I think I’m interested in playing. But damn if it ain’t impressive.
Do you think if they had abbreviated it as “MERDe” that a language filter would allow it?
