We're hoping you can help Sackboy look his best when he appears in LittleBigPlanet this October, by designing a brand new costume for him or his more lady-like equivalent, Sackgirl.
LittleBigPlanet is a unique game, exclusive to PlayStation 3, combining an amazing platform adventure with a huge social community that will enable you to play, create and share your adventures with friends.
And like all great platform games, LittleBigPlanet has a hero. Meet Sackboy, the cool little character that explores the world with you. One of the things that makes Sackboy unique is that you can decide how he looks by changing his colour, costume and style.
We're hoping you can help Sackboy look his best, for when he appears in LittleBigPlanet this October, by designing a brand new costume for him or his more lady-like equivalent, Sackgirl.
Send us your inspired outfit ideas for Sackboy or Sackgirl, and Media Molecule will pick out the best ones and transform them into new attire. The winning design will be available to download FOR FREE from the PlayStation Store for use in LittleBigPlanet.
Interested? Wonderful! Read on for more information on how to take part...
How to take part
All you have to do is download the Sackboy template, open it in an image editor - such as Paint, Photoshop or Paintshop Pro - and draw on your costume design.
We're looking for imaginative and interesting ideas with a splash of Sackboy's endearing charm that suit the look and feel of LittleBigPlanet. So it doesn't matter if you're not the Leonardo Da Vinci of Photoshop, if your clothing concept is just a great idea, it will still be in with a good chance of winning!
Once your costume design is ready, just attach it to an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, with My Sackboy Costume as the subject line.
Hold on! Don't send it just yet!
Make sure you include the following information in your email too:
