The "SackBOTastic" Competition

What will you do...
with an army of Sackbots at your command?

LittleBigPlanet 2 is finally here! As part of our ultimate celebration, Sacktastic™ is launching the first ever competition for this massive sequel, LittleBigPlanet 2! Here's the deal:

Concept: Sackbots are one of the revolutionary new features included in LBP2. A Sackbot is a Customizable Artificial-Intelligence Unit that you can program any way you'd like. They can have some very simple settings or perform extremely complex actions. Through just this one feature, the possibilities are already endless and we want to see what you can do!

Goal: Build a Level that includes a Custom Sackbot Technology that you created. You don't have to have more than one Sackbot in the level, we just need to be impressed by what it can do and how it interacts and works in the level you've created. The level must be a real level, whether it's a replica of another game, an original storyline, or whatever you want - it doesn't really matter but it should keep our attention and be worth playing. You may also have more than just one custom set of Sackbot Inventions. It could be a level where each Sackbot portrays a specific character and interacts with Sackboy differently... If you'd like, the player may also become the Sackbot through use of the Controlinator, but make sure the controls play smoothly and aren't too frustrating nor hard to lean. Potentially, we'd like to see levels where Sackbots work together (or work with Sackboy) in unique ways to create a specific type of gameplay all its own.

Prize: In the end, the Sacktastic™ Team along with maybe a few special guest judges will play all the levels entered into the contest and after some various discussing and debating, will choose one winner who they feel made the best LittleBigPlanet 2 Level with Sackbots. Almost any level with Prominent Sackbots could potentially count as an entry, but we are looking for creative, intuitive, and original uses in particular. The Final Winner will receive a gift every LittleBigPlanet Fan & Collector must have...
An Official LittleBigPlanet Sackboy or Sackbot (if available by the end of the contest) Plush!* This High-Quality Plush Doll from Senario is Officially Licensed by Playstation and It Could Be YOURS!

*Specific LittleBigPlanet Merchandise Won is Subject to Availability of the Item(s) We Choose Upon Completion of the Competition. We'd Like to Deliver an Official Sackbot Plush from the LittleBigPlanet Series 3 Collection to the Winner Ideally, but the Release Date of the Product from Senario has Yet to be Confirmed.

However, we are starting the contest early and informing you of all this now because we understand it may take you awhile to get used to all the new Creation Tools in LittleBigPlanet 2 before you feel comfortable making a real sufficient entry to the SackBOTastic Competition.
