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.

I think this is ridiculous. I am ashamed to be English right now. Why can it never be left as a good movie, or a good T.V show? There has to be some crappy cash-in game made. I hate game publishers who agree to make these things, it makes me sick.

Exodist, Ehhee, no really, its the other way around. Usually with a game thats set to suck to begin with ends up making a sequal, most low key games like this usually do.

Lets hope this doesn't sell well either, so then they never make a sequel. Who ever thought of the idea to make a Little Britain game should be fired now.

Can't stand little britain and there bloody catchphrase "comedy". Give me something along the lines of darkplace or the mighty boosh. Hell If they announced a monkey dust game i may just start pacing up and down outside the nearest store.

Meh... Little Britain was great up until series 3, now I just can't be bothered with it. I just don't find it funny at all anymore and I'm sure the game will be totally s***!

Little Britain's supposed to be funny? That explains alot; namely, my contempt for humanity.

Casual fan of the show but...no... I have no reason to believe that this will be ny better than any movie/tv tie-in. In my eyes it is just a poor attempt to cash in. That's what happens when a tv show stops being about the show and becomes focused on the money it can make. Way to ride it until the wheels fall off...

This will go well with all the other tacky Little Britain crap, fridge magnets, mugs. I was shocked at how much crap they sold last year. Little Britain is the most overrated show out there today. Cheap catch phrase comedy and David Walliams just isnt funny. Truly an awful idea.

This sounds like a game that Andy WOULDNT want. hah hah hah. If they were going to make a game out of a comedy, something like faulty towers would be great, because you could just be rushing round the hotel at great speed, performing tasks on the way and just TRY to keep the day running smoothly. And you would get to choose how you did these tasks (if you need meat, you could either phone for it, run for it, drive for it, ask someone else to get it and take their place). Infact, I actually like the sound of a faulty towers game! But little britain? what would you do in that except obcene minigames like get andy to run about whilst lou isnt looking, the actual "pirate memory game", try and get the computer to say "YES", actually get the members of fat fighters to lose fat, play dress up in "im a real lady", create a "feem toon"... lol I wouldn't be surprised if those were actually in the game.. With next gen graphics this could actualy work, but it needs to have a fixed world for you to be in. Like a faulty towers game could have the hotel and the village as the entire real-time world... but little britain has so many locations, and it being a scetch show and all... i would presume mini games.. with the characters in them... :(

Hmmm... sounds like a total Christmas cash in, and yet, it won't be ready till Jan?! Sounds awful... but perhaps they have an original take on the whole thing? Matt and Walliams are a bit genius sometimes...

Oh dear. Low-brow British comedy (the offensive, shock-value-made-kind) gets a terrible looking game, yet shows like Red Dwarf, Black Adder and the good kinds of British shows go to waste?

This looks like a £10 straight-to-bargain-bin title if ever I saw one. What a joke, I have never heard of a game based on a sketch show. And ever since Little Britain went down the crapper in season 3 its not even been that interesting.

*shrug* well the series is actualy realy funny and if they just keep this as a daft budget title with silly mini games its fine by me. I wont be buying it anyway. How the hell can you do an american version of the show? I mean serioulsy? It was bad enough when they dubbed Bob the builder with some camp sounding guy and then remade the office with dumbed down scripts and humor, hell they even chenged the word philosopher to sorcerer because they thought that americans wouldnt understand it in a certain book. The media need to get over the idea that Americans are all stupid and unable to interact with people from other cultures properly. And they need to stop spoon feeding the american public low brow slapstick humor and filtering out any thing taht they deem "Foreighn" I mean for goodness sakes Britain, Canada, Australia and America all originated from the same culture pretty much and speak the same language. The rest of us are happy sharing media and TV shows why do the American media insist on filtering everything?
