SACKBOY AND ADVENTURE GO TOGETHER LIKE ICE CREAM AND WASPS. INSEPARABLE. UNPREDICTABLE.
A small creature made of fabric, and imbued with the power to create, Sackboy inhabits the world of LittleBigPlanet. Using his mysterious PopIt, Sackboy can imagine objects into being, which aid him in any dangerous situation. Able to reshape the environment around him, Sackboy can present enemies with an ever-shifting array of obstacles to deal with, while forcing them to dodge his Cakinator and Grabinator attacks. Who doesn't love a kick-butt plushie?
THE LEGACY OF SACKBOY:
- LittleBigPlanet PSP
- LittleBigPlanet 2
- Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves
- LittleBigPlanet Karting
- LittleBigPlanet PS Vita
- LittleBigPlanet HUB
- LittleBigPlanet 3
Sackboy is doing some more creative work on LittleBigPlanet after he kicked the Negativitron out. He then learned that other worlds are in pain due to chaos, destruction and strife. Deciding that these worlds would need his creative help, Sackboy heads out into the outer worlds.
- "If you were to say your Myogenic Cardiovascular Organ was found in your chest you'd be technically right, but spiritually wrong. Whether it's a welcoming palace or home sweet hovel, your home is where your heart is. Consider Sackboy. His home is LittleBigPlanet, the ever expanding ethereal dreamscape of endless possibilities. Even the invading Negativitron couldn't persuade the diminutive creature of cloth to forego his crafted world. Indeed, it was he who kicked their bottoms out, and returned LittleBigPlanet to its former glory. And it's no wonder: he's a LittleBigPlanetian, for goodness' sake. We live to create and create to live. To hear of worlds where destruction outpaces creation is like nails on a chalkboard. Wounding to the soul. If these worlds crying out for his special brand of creativity exist, Sackboy must search them out. What wonders will he find, reshape and make so much better? We can only dream."
Name: Big DaddyReason: Sackboy was happily moving along until he saw Big Daddy and Little Sister behind him. He was startled when Little Sister asked Big Daddy to unzip him, but quickly cheered up when she had a change of heart. He set up a hopscotch board for Little Sister to play on. Little Sister decided she liked Sackboy more, asking Big Daddy if she could keep him. But when Big Daddy groans in disagreement, the Little Sister and Sackboy both became upset with him. Enraged, Big Daddy revved up his drill and lumbered toward Sackboy to attack. Sackboy prepared himself for battle.
Connection: Both BioShock and LittleBigPlanet place emphasis on the player's choices, moral and ethical choices for BioShock, and level and character designs for LittleBigPlanet. Big Daddy and Sackboy also come in many different varieties. Both also cannot talk and have someone else talk for them: Andrew Ryan for Big Daddy, and Stephen Fry for Sackboy. Their designs also take inspiration from Shane Acker's award winning 2005 short film 9. It could also be a big vs. little motif. Also, in LittleBigPlanet, Sackboy collects bubbles and, in BioShock, Big Daddy is referred to as "Mister Bubbles" by Little Sisters.
Both of their games have a motif for defying the impossible. Andrew Ryan in BioShock makes a speech expressing his dream of building a city at the bottom of the sea and making it a reality when he created Rapture (Zachary Comstock in BioShock Infinite accomplishes this similarly by building Columbia, a city in the sky). LittleBigPlanet's entire theme is about the player's creativity and imagination, allowing them to make anything when they put their mind to it using the games tools.
(Sackboy moves along until he sees Big Daddy.)
Little Sister: Unzip him, Mr. B! Unzip him!
(Sackboy becomes sad.)
Little Sister: Aww! Look, it's a fresh one Mr. B! Hey look! I like him! So ready to unstuff!
(Sackboy becomes happy and opens his Pop-It, makes a hopscotch board appear, and closes his Pop-It.)
Little Sister: Challenge! Challenge! Only one will win. Right, Mr. B? One, two, found an old shoe. Three, four, never darken my door. He's full of cuddles, Mr. B! Can I have him?
(Big Daddy moans.)
Little Sister: He's my new friend! I don't care what you say! Mine! Mine!
(Sackboy gets angry at Big Daddy, who gets enraged. The two of them get ready to battle each other.)
Sackboy returns after his long journey and is once again creating LittleBigPlanet with the power he used after defeating Polygon Man. The reason why he did it (the Narrator explains) was to allow us to continue creating new worlds and we are his reward. As long as we keep giving, he keeps on smiling.
- "Aah, like a blissful memory of a wonderful dream, our little Sack chum returns. Hope he's brought us a pressie. Of course he has. It's the stuff of dreams. The elixir of life. The primordial soul of free thinking. And if we want to exchange this gift for socks, I'll bet he's got the receipt, too. And what's in all this for him? Sackboy ventures to worlds troubled by chaos and strife returning with the building blocks of pure imagination so that we can play with them and fashion them into new worlds. So where's his glittering prize? We are his reward. Sackboy's heart is filled with contentment when a LittleBigPlanetian creates and shares. As long as we keep on making and giving, he keeps on smiling. After all, what was it we said at the start of this journey? Oh yes, something about hearts and homes. And isn't LittleBigPlanet your home away from home? Sackboy has shown us, once again, you're always welcome home."
