The Story of LittleBigPlanet on the PlayStation Blog!


Our friends over at PlayStation have just released a brand new, in-depth piece on their blog which shares the story behind LittleBigPlanet's development, featuring interviews from our very own Mark Healey and Kareem Ettouney who both share some cool new stories from the early days of Media Molecule!

There's also a great interview with Christophe Villedieu, who is one of our many awesome hires from the community. Hear his story of how he went from being an Art Director in Advertising to a Designer at Mm!

Here's a little snippet below, and you can read the full piece on the PlayStation Blog!

It began with a resignation letter. But Mark Healey had no idea he’d asked to leave his job, because he was on holiday at the time. So it was with some surprise on his return that he found himself being asked to clear his desk at Lionhead Studios, where he’d helped make such gaming classics as Black & White and Fable.

The person who wrote his resignation letter for him? That was Alex Evans. With Kareem Ettouney and Dave Smith, who also worked at Lionhead, and Siobhan Reddy, who was working at Burnout maker Criterion, these five friends, along with Chris Lee, Francis Pang, Anton Kirczenow, Rex Crowle and Mags Hardwick, founded a new studio called Media Molecule.
