Aaaand we’re back - now safely housed in the new improved Mm Towers, and loving it. We’ve gathered together a selection of moving photos, of the old office and the new, and we’ll shove a few more up over the course of the week no doubt. So if you’re interested to see what happens when you pack a whole dev studio into bubble wrap and move it up the road, you are in luck!
A little after lunch today, the familiar haunting jingle of an Ice Cream van came drifting through the windows at Mm towers. A large gang of molecules sprang into action, dashing outside at the speed of light to buy as many ice creams as they could muster.
This is the first true sign that the miserable cold winter is behind us, and ahead? Only sun, sun, sun…. and ice cream.
Another one year anniversary to celebrate, oh my! It’s been a whole year since the first episode of the LittleBigPodcast, and to celebrate their 40th epicsode, Austin and Daniel invited Tom and Me (Spaff) to be guests on their show, and answer all kinds of pretty silly questions about cheese, films, and the LittleBigPlanet Community.
Happy Birthday guys, keep up the good work!
The latest podcast from Media Molecule adds in to its mix our two new community managers, Tom and Spaff. Topics of discussion include the Develop Awards, the InFAMOUS costume, the recently announced partnership with Marvel, reaching one million levels and an extended mailbag answering loads of questions from the community.
Remember - you can send us questions to answer in the podcast (which will hopefully be sooner rather than later), just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Fresh faced and ready to go, we are the new Media Molecule Community Management team. Plucked straight from the land of the internets, and now fully absorbed into the fold here in Guildford, some of you will know us from our previous adventures, over on LittleBigPlanetoid – a fan site we built which impressed the folks here so much, they gave us jobs. (Thank you!)
Whilst we are, with no doubt, big enough fans of LittleBigPlanet to create and maintain a website dedicated to it, we are also games industry professionals, each with a long working history in and around games and the web. In fact, we worked together for the last few years at NCsoft (City of Heroes, Guild Wars, etc) Tom as a graphical designer, and myself as a content writer / Community Coordinator.
Before we left at the end of last year, we worked regularly with one another to build content, design tools, and work with communities from the very start of their lives, right through their launch, and beyond… and that’s what we’re here to do here at Media Molecule!
We’re busy consuming information, meeting all the fine folk here, and walking around looking at all the secret things (ooh shiny!) but as soon as we are settled, you can expect a steady stream of news and community activities.
To help get to know each of us better, here are some handy profiles we prepared earlier… well, just now actually, but who’s checking?
