The long awaited LBP Flash update has finally arrived, and it's jam packed with new features, fixes, looks, and tunes! There are lots of changes occurring in LittleBigPlanet Flash leading up to a stable and finished release... Until then, check out all the changes happening behind the scenes! :)
Pre-release Update 0.98 includes a heap of new patch notes! They are as follows:
*Secrets that don't concern you yet ;)
Thank you so much for your patience with this project, and I promise that we are working as often as possible to bring you this all new LittleBigExperience!
First off, let's discuss the bugs...
There are many bugs still residing in the source code of LittleBigPlanet Flash, and until we can target them out and stabilize the full build, the game will not be safe to publish. The musical aspect of LBP Flash is still under development, but we will be releasing music previews soon. :)
I know that you all are hyping this game out of proportion. It is the first fully developed LittleBigPlanet fan-game on any other platform besides a Playstation console, which may be exciting news to some fellow LBP fans... but to clarify some things, this game is NOT a full fledged game. It does not have an official Story Mode. You can not play as Sackboy (yet!), and it does NOT include a create mode. However, because of many create mode requests, we have included a small 'physics sandbox' called "Sandbox Mode", or simply "The Sandbox".
It will be a constantly evolving game, as well as may updates and additions to come (primarily to Sandbox Mode) and we hope that you will enjoy this bite sized game as much as we have enjoyed making it!
Remember, we are always open to suggestions and ideas!
Thank you all so much for your support on this project... it's been a long journey, and an ambitious one at that!

First of all, thank you guys so much for testing our unstable game. It helps a lot in the development process, and detailed and thorough reports are always helpful!
This update will target fixing the following known issues:
T-Games Network Members:
Thank you for signing up to the T-Games Network. We can't wait to bring you an all new, bite-sized flash game adventure.
Until then, we are extending the beta to a new 'closed' phase, which will allow everyone who signed up to the T-Games Network prior to 1/31/15 a chance to test the game before a final, rough-drafted release.
If you are a member of the T-Games Network, and qualify for this promotion, then keep an eye on your email inbox. We will be manually inputting all email addresses into the Trixel website database. You should receive an email to set up your account password...
Once you have configured your password, you can then sign into the website, click 'My Account', and you should see the "LBP Flash Closed Beta" page appear under your privileged pages list.
Thank you all for the support, and we are trying to make this a fun game for everyone. :)

Thanks to the amazing editors, designers, programmers, developers, and testers that LittleBigPlanet Flash has had, we are very pleased to inform you that progress is going well, and the game will be available to play for free later this year on our website.
Until then, we are launching a new beta stage. We will be privately, and then soon-after, openly, inviting members of the LBP community to come and take part in an all new snack-sized LittleBigPlanet adventure, which also serves as a simple free time burning mini-game, and nostalgia trip! :)
This new testing phase will not only test the game, but give you an insight into the developers progress (All developers are members of the LBP community, and are participating in the development of LBP Flash for our enjoyment and yours). We are uncertain of how many features will be available upon the opening of this beta phase, but our current plans are to roll out updates gradually over time, until the finished version is released (in which case, the beta will be pulled offline and updated on another official page).
We are excited to see what you all think of this new fan-made, tiny, handcrafted adventure.
We are still taking all of your simple suggestions, and some of them have already gone into effect in the new 'Story Level Mini-Games'!
We will keep you updated on our twitter, "@Trixel_Studios", where we publish news and updates often.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday, and what better day than today to announce our current aimed time frame for release?
First of all, we would like to thank each and every one of our beta testers, pre-beta testers, and everyone else who has supported us throughout development. We have been working hard to bring you a free, non-profit, brand new LittleBigPlanet Flash game.
This is our first major and official independently developed game/project, and we can't thank you enough for the feedback we have received from you all, and we know how eager you are to finally play the game.
Progress has gone well, but it still isn't quite completed. After initial release, we will still be updating the game to run smoother, along with improvements to the UI and gameplay, and possibly compatibility with certain things.
We are working on our first story-themed minigame level, and we will be ready to release it sometime in the near future. We are planning a release sometime within the time frame of early 2015.
We can't wait to see what you all think, and have fun in LittleBigPlanet 3 until then! :)
- Trixel Studios
We know you are all very eager to play LittleBigPlanet Flash. We are also very eager to let you play it! However, there are some disturbances in development that we need to fix first.
Like every game you will ever play, there are lots going on behind the scenes. We work on this fangame day and night, whether it be working on the actual game itself, designing levels and UI, or configuring future content support... There are some things we need to address before we start the private and public betas. Trust us, we are very aware of how bad you want to play, and how bad you want to see more, and we are doing everything we can to show you new and appropriate content at the time it's ready.
The game itself is pretty far off from being finished. Everytime we update the code and build we run into even more problems than we had, but of course, it's different problems than we originally had, so it does take some investigating to find the cause and an effective fix. We are still working on a proper save system, and that won't be available in the beta. We are doing our best to include the narrator Billy Anderson in the Beta without it replaying the sound everytime you enter that certain section of the user interface.
Content will be included in the beta, but none of it will be playable or downloadable until we launch the final game.
The game is constantly changing and evolving. Any content you see in the beta is not garunteed to be the final version. You may not share any beta content until the full game is released to the public.
We will have more news closer to the publishing of the beta.
Dear T-Games Network Members:
Thank you all so much for signing up to the T-Games Network. It really helps Trixel Studios out, as well as T-Games!
As a thank you for your existing participation in the T-Games Network, we will be sending out LittleBigPlanet Flash Beta invites first to everyone who signed up to the T-Games Network before the T-Games' LBP Flash Beta access announcement was made.
What this means: If you signed up to the T-Games Network before the date of, October 4th 2014, you will receive an invite a bit earlier than everyone who signed up after the announcement was made.
We are working with T-Games to ensure that each and every individual who signed up before the specified date will have access to the beta before everyone else. This is our thank you for supporting T-Games, and becoming a member before LBP Flash Beta invites were guaranteed to those who signed up! :)
We don't have a set release date for the beta or the game yet.
As always, the game will be FREE, along with any additional content.*
*Additional content may require in-game currency
Please Note: Those who receive the beta download may need to re-download the beta as updates become available. We aren't certain how many beta updates will be issued.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us on Twitter at "@Trixel_Studios", or by email at "TrixelStudios@Gmail.com".
We don't currently have any announcements to make about the progress of the game, but we are working as hard as we can, when we can, to make sure that this is the coolest LBP fan-game you've ever played! (if you've never played any, I guess that means it will be!)
Thanks for understanding, and we will still make sure that everyone who signed up to the Network for the LBP Flash Beta will get in, as promised!

I bet you've been wondering what has happened to the Nexus Console, am I right? No?... Okay then, I'll tell you anyways!
The Nexus console has been moved onto LittleBigPlanet 3, where we can take advantage of the layers, the logic, the power, and the graphics.
The Nexus Console will use "broadcast microchips" to change the environment around it.
There will be a major change! Games will no longer be linked to levels, instead you just place the Nexus down in an empty level, turn it on, launch a game, and the environment around you instantly, and dramatically changes.
It's like a level builder inside of a box!
These are the current plans, and we haven't forgotten about the Nexus, or you!

What you've done, and what we'll do!
4 long years of us bringing talented creators, game developers, and graphic artists together to create things that would (and continue to) mesmerize us have really paid off!
Without the amazing community you guys have formed, there wouldn't be a Trixel Studios, a T-Games, or a Moons in Motion. None of the gaming communities we have today would exist if you guys didn't.
Thank you for everything you have done!
We may have had a bit of a rough patch lately, but there was a block between us and you. That was never our intention and we feel terrible for being so disconnected, unorganized, and full of false promises.
If you can forgive us, then we can all carry on doing what we once did best!
Along with all of the new changes, like us changing our website entirely, announcing new projects/games, and reaching out to the community in new ways, there are also a few new things coming in the future, as well.
LittleBigPlanet 3 is right around the corner (yay! :D), which means there are tons of new things that we will be working on, when we aren't playing around, of course. Level Packs, Logic Kits, Giveaways, HUB's, and more are coming your way along with LittleBigPlanet 3 itself!
The New Era of Trixel Studios
New website changes, continuous updates, new mini-games, projects, levels, content kits, backgrounds, icons, etc. are all coming in the future thanks to the fresh new start we've introduced!
We've ditched the old icons, logos, and banners. This is our newest look, a look we can be proud of, and a look that others can be happy about too!
We've taken up enough of your time rambling all dramatically! See you in LittleBigPlanet 3! :)
