LittleBigPlanet Scoops Children's BAFTA

Boom Blox, Viva Piņata and de Blob pipped at the post

Sackboy beats out competition from Boom Blox Bash Party, Viva Piņata: Pocket Paradise and de Blob for best videogame.

Awarded during last night's event, which aimed to "celebrate excellence in the art forms of the moving image for children - from film and television to video games and websites," the award is just one of many the Media Molecule-developed game has received in the year since its release. They include another BAFTA, four Game Developer Choice, five Develop awards and the Edge Interactive Innovation Award.

LittleBigPlanet has also enjoyed its Leerdammer patch today, which updates the game with new features including the ability to create levels with other players online.

Also awarded last night in the Interactive category was developer Plug-in Media's Big and Small Online for the BBC's CBeebies website, a game made in Papervision3D for Flash. Runners-up in the category were Atticmedia's The Legula Adventure and Channel 4's 1066, developed by Preloaded, and Routes, developed by Oil Productions.
