Various characters from the show.

"Computer says yes" for cult comedy Little Britain--a game version of the British sketch comedy show will be coming to the PlayStation 2 and PC in January 2007, with a PSP version following shortly afterward.

The game will simulate an episode of the BBC show, with gamers having to complete minigame challenges to move on to the next skit and ultimately the end credits. The eight minigames feature Little Britain characters Lou and Andy, chav Vicky Pollard, Mr. Mann, transvestites Emily and Florence, fat fighter Marjorie Dawes, Daffyd Thomas (the "only gay in the village"), Judy and Maggie, and Letty.

The characters have been modelled in 3D and animated by hand, and voices for the game will be provided by the creators and main stars of the show, Matt Lucas and David Walliams. The pair have been recording the voices this week, a Blast spokesperson told GameSpot, and Walliams has also been working on the game's script.

Little Britain was previously a radio series before debuting on BBC Three in 2003. There have been three seasons of the show so far, and there will be a tour of Australia in 2007. A fourth series is also planned for autumn 2007, and an American version on HBO is in the works.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

comparing little britain with 24 is a bit strange, think the rather old monty python game is a better comparison - i love little britain on tv, but a computer game? i don't like it, i suppose...

I can't believe this is actually happening..... OK, Little Britain had its moments to begin with. But a Computer Game?!?!? A COMPUTER GAME?!?!? No... a thousand times, NO.

...because American remakes of British shows have worked sooooo well in the past... /sarcasm ...a fourth series? Just let it go already!!! So few tv shows can make it to a fourth series and still please fans. Better to have left on a high note then to grind it to dust... Is that 8 - mini games in total? So even if by some amazing stoke of comic meets gaming genius this game turns out good there is hardly anything to it.

As much as i love little Britain (bar series 3), one cant help but feel this will be utter b*****ks, with catch phrase dependant scripting and repetitive gameplay. Then again, as a party game, it might work. or, as i suspect, it'll blow, but sell well to kids, in the traditional popular franchise manner (usually associated more with movies, as i'm sure you're all aware)

I am kind of getting annoyed by Lucas and Walliams's need to milk this show. The first two series were great. But by the third it was a bit boring and I thought it should have stopped. But they just keep hitting us with merchandise and now this. WHY? Surely even Lucas and Walliams know this game will suck hard but they are only making it because they want the money. At least that is how it seems.

Once again, talented people succumb to the lure of easy money, leaving us gamers with a poo shaped like a disc.

I hope Jack Thompson jumps on this P.O.S. Little Britain is NOT funny, is extremely racist and stereotypical and should never be thought as entertainment.

The show isn't funny, it contains offensive stereotypes and repetitive sketches that have overstayed their welcome. The game doesn't stand a chance of being remotely decent.

My favorite British comedy was always "Do Shut Up". It's about a hard-drinking yet loving family of soccer hooligans. When they're not having a "go with a bird" they're having a "row with a wanker".

"The characters have been modelled in 3D "....OMG....it's a revolution! This will probably be such a bad game.

you cant make games from Tv shows anyway, unless they are like quiz shows, but realistically they dont count.

I remember the firt time I saw little britain - I was like, hey this is pretty good. Then I found out that all the episodes were the same and it was awful. Also it is the worst idea for a game ever.
