A video from GDC09, showing the talk which Alex Evans and Mark Healey gave, has popped up on YouTube, giving some interesting insight in to the early development of LittleBigPlanet.
We won’t waffle on, check it out:
There are many interesting things in this video - like the Phil Harrison level patch, or the original sizes and shapes of the concept Sackboy designs. Also shown in the video is a Katamari Damacy costume - something which we can’t help but pray to eventually be released!

Speaking at GDC, Alex Evans and Mark Healey have revealed that there will be plenty more to come for LittleBigPlanet, with Mark saying:
We still feel like we’re halfway through the development of LittleBigPlanet, to be honest
...which is a tasty reminder that the game is still expanding and will be offering even more to the community as time rolls on. If the game really is considered to be ‘halfway’ through development, we can all expect to see some pretty epic updates throughout 2009.
In the months since launch, we’ve been treated to regular free DLC, plus paid-for DLC like that big game changing premium content - the Metal Gear Solid pack. Improvements to the game via patches and updates have also been made regularly - and let’s not forget that the next big patch is due very soon. In fact, there’ll be news on Cornish Yarg later today.
The pair also gave some interesting insight in to the development of the game and the ways in which it has changed since its initial conception. We won’t repeat the article here though, because it’s already been splendidly written over on Eurogamer.
