Little Big Planet spin-off, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, could be coming to PC following a discovery made in the Steam database. 

According to a post in the GamingLeaksandRumours (opens in new tab) subreddit, a game that is potentially Sackboy: A big Adventure has been uploaded to the Steam back-end database. The Steam listing (opens in new tab) doesn’t directly say that the game is Sackboy - apart from a SteamDB staff comment which mentions the possibility - however, other clues in the listing are also pointing in that direction. 

As the same Reddit post points out, one giveaway is that in the branches section of the listing you can see the name 'sumoqa' which makes us think it has something to do with the QA team at Sumo Digital - the studio responsible for Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Not only this, but the listing also contains the depot name 'Marmalade Content' which, if you think back to the NVIDIA leak from last month, was supposedly the code name for Sackboy. 

Sackboy: A Big Adventure was originally released alongside the PS5 in November 2020. The game was also released on PS4 however has remained exclusive to the Sony console until potentially now. In this Little Big Planet spin-off title, Sackboy swaps his usual 2.5D escapades for a fully 3D platforming experience. As you’d expect from a LBP game though, everything in the game still sports the super cute handmade aesthetic. 

The game has remained relevant throughout the last year though with a tonne of downloadable content for the game (including The Last of Us 2 inspired skins and Ratchet and Clank cosmetics for your Sack-person) and it looks as though Sumo Digital are still hard at work on their next AAA project as a recent job listing reveals.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
