Alex Evans, co-founder of Media Molecule has told GI that former Sony head - and now Atari shoulders - Phil Harrison's influence on LittleBigPlanet's early days was "completely key and pivotal".
"Obviously that then transitioned into Sony, and especially the team at Liverpool, and Michael Denny - I don't want to downplay their roles as well. But certainly with Phil, at the very beginning, the amazing thing was that he got it," said Evans.
"We pitched much more of a platform game, the physics and so on, and he was very instrumental in telling us to think about what it would mean to have user-generated content - to think about what that means for the community."
This is where we say "more through the link" and actually mean it.
