Return to Carnivalia is a community level pack created by a team of us here at Trixel Creative. It released on September 22, 2018 and was Team Picked shortly after. It remains the only adventure to be Team Picked on a Monday instead of a Friday, and was highly-acclaimed across the LBP community.
Gameplay motifs are a way to block out the basics of a playable segment within a level's design. Nearly every platformer level is made up of a certain number of motifs. Creating a gameplay motif is essentially about making the bare bones of it, and its purpose is to make a clean, separated version that prioritizes functionality over visuals. Once your piece of gameplay works and is polished you can simply insert it into your level like a puzzle piece, then decorate! Working with motifs this way ensures easy access to make changes and keeps your level creation tidy.

It should go without saying, but remember that the photos and concepts shown here are not representative of the quality or content of the final product.
