"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.

Maybe it's not too late to get some top-flight game talent in on this one. Wil Wright, for instance- he could create a game where we guide sperm into an egg, play a fertilization minigame, etc. and raise David Walliams and Matt Lucas into the adults that eventually create the show, even guiding the growth of their individual personalities. Or maybe Ed Boon could create a game where Walliams and Lucas could fight to the gory end. Or maybe we could just not make crappy games out of every media property in the world.

In my experience, the American version of The Office was subpar in comparison to the original. I won't be in the least surprised if the American version is terrible too. Why can't the American TV networks be happy with just importing shows, instead of making their own versions?

I name this game "THE FIRST" of the "bull****" games of the ps2, or in other words, the final good games are about to end, God of War II may be the final battle then, alas, a battle to die for.

Thats fairly shocking eh. Man, im really sick of them making TV shows into games. Most of the simpsons game were total bollocks and the Family Guy game was just plain weird. Little Britain has sold out big time, selling the idea to the U.S etc

Well this is....peculilar. Might as well be one of them "DVD Games". Still, I have to see the Prime Minister skecth played out mini-game style. Or perhaps a rythmn-style for Vicky Pollards "Yer but no but yer but no..."
