Funny you mention this. I don't know anything about LBP2, but lately a lot of my as-yet-unpublished ventures in the level editor actually involves creating "levels" that are more like minigames than the typical, traditional singleplayer or multiplayer levels. The contraptions available in Clones definitely make it possible to create certain kinds minigames, albeit in ways that can be tedious and tricky to manage oftentimes, unfortunately.

I'll email you one working "level" tonight to get you a sense of the crazy ideas I've been toying around with. I'm not sure I'd want to publish that level, but there is another one (actually two, but one thing at a time...) I'm working on at the moment (completely unrelated to aforementioned level) that I'm more likely to see through.

Thanks for sharing your ideas! Very creative. I'm looking forward to seeing those maps on the site :) One of the concepts i had was for a level that uses a large landwatcher over a custom shape (possibly tweakable by players before play?) which is mirrored making it a 2-player match. The winner is the group that removes all their land first. It's a race to see who can remove the land most efficiently. Not sure if i should allow the groups to interact and sabotage, or keep it isolated.

Well, looks like work was canceled for tomorrow and no one told me. So maybe I can show up too!

It just occurred to me that I might be able to work around this by attaching a proper USB keyboard to my laptop. It's rather comical to have this big honking keyboard attached to my laptop just for that RETURN key, but I'll be at home so it'd be okay.

Finally someone sane enough to post the time in a proper time zone that everyone knows their relative time shift to. :lol:
Too bad I can't be around at that time as I'll likely be out until past dawn. Playing against you yielded the most interesting games as I feel we're about on the same level (and underranked, as we both only seem play against Simon and rt :P).

I'll probably be around during the first time slot (17:00 UTC) for a bit less than an hour.

That's actually what I always do, because my external keyboard is so much more comfortable to use than an sucky laptop keybaord.

My laptop keyboard has a great bounce to the keys, and the layout is perfect for programming. I recommend it - Alienware M15x.

If I manage to get online without my connection failing me, then I'll be there (on the early one). Looking forward to it. :)

But I'll warn you now; I've never played it online before yet and am not very far in the single player game yet, so I'm probably going to be really bad at it! :D Still, it'll be a good learning experience, and I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun!

It was a fun jam. During the later timeslot some intense 2 vs 2 matches were taking place (rt & ccx VS ttk and jk). I'm scanning the replays to see which might be good for YouTube annotation, hope to have them up this week :)

Cool! I'm still trying to guess who's green on that one. :P
