LittleBigPlanet Sweeps AIAS Awards

Submitted by on Saturday, 21 February 20093 Comments

I'd like to sack the Academy ... A furtive glance over at PS3 Attitude’s tag-cloud should indicate just how much we’ve talked about LittleBigPlanet over the last year or so. And rightly so – the game is a marvel to behold, and even better still, an absolute joy to play.

We’re not the only ones to think so of course and on Thursday night, amongst the razzle-dazzle of the Las Vegas lights, Sackboy and co. wooed the crowd and walked off with eight prestigious gongs at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences awards.

Want to know what categories the game was victorious in?

Check after the bounce.

Apart from picking up the big one, Overall Game of the Year, we’re pleased to say that the game also triumphed in the following categories.

  • Console Game of the Year
  • Family Game of the Year
  • Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction
  • Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction
  • Outstanding Achievement in Visual Engineering
  • Outstanding Innovation in Gaming
  • Outstanding Character Performance (Sackboy)

We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Alex and all the gang at MediaMolecule for yet more recognition within the industry for making what truly is a stellar game. Well done guys.
