BAFTA for Double Eleven?Ladies and Gentlemen, raise your glasses and join us in celebrating our first BAFTA nomination for LittleBigPlanet Vita. As many of you know, the Double Eleven team have worked extremely hard to ensure that LBP Vita was the epitome of perfection when it came to the big release in September 2012. The team worked tirelessly in collaboration with Tarsier Studios in Sweden to make LBP Vita surpass the expectations of its ever growing fan base.
Let's take a look back over the beginnings of LittleBigPlanet; the first edition of the game was created with the aim of encouraging users to build their own communities and customise their own planets around the loveable character Sackboy. The first edition was a great success and it picked up multiple BAFTAs. LittleBigPlanet 2 picked up 2 BAFTA awards in the Family and Game Innovation categories, so to hear that our work on LittleBigPlanet Vita was also to be recognised with the same glitz, glamour and prestige of the 2 previous games, we felt truly honoured! LBP sales worldwide have remained consistently high since the release of the first game, again confirming that this game's story has truly taken the games world by storm.
The meta scores for each release of LBP have been consistently impressive, a trend that continued with LBP Vita. The Vita version received a white-hot reception from gamers the world over, making all of our hard work worth it to see the positive response that it received following its release. Whilst we obviously enjoy the awards and recognition for developing such an amazing game for Vita, the positive feedback from the people who play the game really makes us proud of what we have achieved. At the end of the day, we are also extremely proud that we managed to attain a meta score of that level in line with those of the previous games.
As it stands, LBP Vita has received the best response so far. Everyone involved in the development of the game feels an overwhelming sense of pride when it comes down to the final result and they feel honoured that their efforts have culminated in a BAFTA nomination. The ceremony is on 5th March and at Double Eleven we could not be more excited!!
They say it takes a village to raise a child, but it takes one hell of a group of developers to create such a successful game. Needless to say, we are keeping everything crossed for the big day!
