Sackboy: A Big Adventure it seems to be nearly confirmed for PC.
Its plausible Steam database entry has finally obtained an interesting update.
Sackboy, Sony’s stitched mascot, appears to be heading to PC, as a Steam database update has all but confirmed a port of Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
For a few months, unconfirmed reports the about port have publicized SteamDB entry appeared in October 2021, which was postulated to be the game based on references to Project Marmalade, its original codename. The same name appeared in the massive Nvidia GeForce leak a month ago. Then, in June, some very convincing screenshots of PC Sackboy appeared on Reddit, verifying that this was a matter in fact happening.
According to VGC, the SteamDB entry has received a slight update. A happy, zoomed-in Sackboy from A Big Adventure’s key art has been added as an icon. It all but confirms that Sackboy will be arriving at PC soon, though when is unidentified. The icon update happened to coincide with the addition of language support, which typically means that a game is nearing completion. I’d guess we’ll see the port before the finish of 2022, though it could be pushed into early 2023.
The whole thing is rather exciting, and it marks the advent of yet another PlayStation exclusive over here. Sony has devoted the last 18 months to transferring its games to PC—we’ve seen ports of Horizon, Days Gone, God of War, and Spider-Man, and for the most part, they’ve been pretty damn good. Sackboy: A Big Adventure does have a Metacritic score of 79 and is explained as a fun platformer with a lovable mascot. Personally, I would have preferred to see LittleBigPlanet migrate all the cool mods you could have! — Nevertheless, it’s nice to see that Sony wasn’t just blowing hot air when it said it was decided to commit to the PC platform.
