Some fans created a Japanese LocoRoco Wiki. I don’t know if there is an English Wiki anywhere yet. For those playing the game and trying to find items for the Loco House or Loco Editor the Japanese LocoRoco Wiki includes a per world list of what items can be found in each stage and what pieces can be found in the mini games. It’s not complete yet but it is a place to start.
A couple of weeks ago there was an interview with me about LocoRoco on the 1upshow. The actual interview was much much longer and today they posted a longer version.
Not quite but I was going through some old files and found this animation.
Back in collage days, my friend John Alvarado (now lead enginner at Inxile) and I were going to try to make our own game. I think it was called Monkey Busters. In it you played a clown. Two players could play at once. Your job was to round up the monkeys and put them back in their cage. You’d do this by going to a monkey and grabbing his arm and pulling him to the cage. You could throw out bananas which the monkeys would stop to eat to slow them down.
If you are playing the Japanese LocoRoco demo vs 1.01(*), when you finish the game you’ll see a code in the upper right hand corner. You can go to this page and use that code to download a few special music clips and PSP backgrounds.

I've always wanted to try to analyse game sales data but unfortunately it's not generally publicly available. Until recently that is. I discovered that Wikipedia supposedly has data for all games that have sold over 1 million units. Assuming their data is correct or close to correct here is my analysis.
It makes NO FRIKKEN SENSE TO BUY A LICENSE!
You might enjoy checking out the EU LocoRoco website. Dig deep enough and you can find screensavers, messenger icons and other things.
With E3 over and my game pretty much finished I’ve had sometime to check out the
latest demos from the demoscene. I found one in
particular that really pointed out my disappointment in the new Nintendo
Wii. First off let me say I love Nintendo for taking the chance and trying
to shake things up with their new controller and I’m sure there will be some
rocking games but unfortunately now that I’ve seen and played next gen games
(360/PS3) it’s really hard to look at many last gen games. At least the kind that are going for realisim just don’t cut it once I’ve gotten used to better. Katamari Damacy or Mario with their cartoony styles will
always be fine on last gen hardware. But, even though Metroid Prime,
both the original and
sequel are among my favorite games, when I saw Metroid Prime 3 :
Corruption it just looked so dated.
