Game writers agency hired to work on script for hugely-anticipated title

Sidelines is celebrating its work on LittleBigPlanet, set to hit UK retail this week.

The game writers agency commissioned writer Dean Wilkinson to 'inject a mix of humour and personality' into the intro and tutorial text voiced by Steven Fry, 'for that special Fry style'. He also contributed to the in-game text, renamed characters and 'extended their personalities and interactions'.

“Dean joined Sidelines with extensive television comedy writing experience under his belt," said Sini Downing, director of Sidelines.  

"While he was new to the interactive industry, when he wrote for LittleBigPlanet he immediately understood the vibe the guys were looking for in the writing. He managed to get that careful balance of information and fun.”
