The creators of LittlBigPlanet will be interviewed by Phil Harrison at this month's event

Media Molecule will headline the opening keynote session of this year's Develop Conference.

The studio behind the best-selling LittleBigPlanet series will be interviewed by London Venture Partners' general manager Phil Harrison during a session entitled Living Inside a Molecule.

The interview brings the relationship between Harrison and the developer full circle. Harrison first signed LittleBigPlanet during his time at Sony, and now he will be reunited with the studio's founding directors Alex Evans, Mark Healey and Kareem Ettouney to discuss the rise of Media Molecule.

"We're delighted that Media Molecule is opening the conference this year," said Tandem Events MD Andy Lane. "They are the pioneers of user-generated content and remain one of the most creative studios around.

"It will be fascinating to hear their stories from the trenches – and who better to help them relive their tales than the man who helped them on their way: Phil Harrison."
