LittleBigPlanet is Reborn – As a Dreams Level

By Alistair Jones on at

Media Molecule's journey may have come full circle. Dreams doesn't officially release until later this week, but if you can't wait until then, you can check out the studio's previous game, built inside its new one.

In a post on Reddit last night, one user highlighted the efforts of player TheTurtleKing514, who's recreating LittleBigPlanet inside Dreams. After a brief tutorial running players through the original controls, the game enters an early level.

It's a impressive and eerily accurate recreation, but what's most entertaining about this version is the inception-like circumstances of its creation. Dreams is certainly a more powerful set of tools than LittleBigPlanet, but the former certainly wouldn't exist without the latter, so for one to exist inside the other is an amusingly mind-bending bit of development. All we need now is for someone to make Dreams inside Dreams, and kick the whole cycle off again.
