For Release November 4th 2008 (LittleBigPlanet release date)

LittleBigPlanet, one of the year’s most anticipated and highly scored games for the PS3, features an introduction and tutorials voiced by Stephen Fry. Sidelines writer Dean Wilkinson was commissioned to work on this material, injecting a mix of humour and personality into the writing for that special Fry style. He also worked on the in-game text, renamed characters and extended their personalities and interaction.

Sini Downing, Sidelines Agency Director commented,“Dean joined Sidelines with extensive television comedy writing experience under his belt; while he was new to the interactive industry when he wrote for LBP he immediately understood the vibe the guys were looking for in the writing. He managed to get that careful balance of information and fun.”
