Unsatisfied with simply winning the "Artistic Achievement" category of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts
Awards earlier this year, Media Molecule and its charming, customizable platforme, LittleBigPlanet
, took the BAFTA's Children's Awards show by storm last night. The title took top honors during the ceremony, beating out Boom Blox Bash Party
, de Blob
and Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise
for the coveted "Best Videogame" award.
Media Molecule's Mark Healey teased GamesIndustry
about the future of the infinitely award-winning
title, saying, "LittleBigPlanet
has a lot more room to absorb a lot more things before we say goodbye to that one. I think every year from now on should be a big year for LittleBigPlanet, hopefully." With the Online Create mode
patch out today and the Water Update
coming soon, we think the studio's got plenty of big ideas to keep the Planet
turning for a long, long time.
