A new entry has appeared on the Steam database, and all signs point to a rumored PC port of Sackboy: A Big Adventure coming to the digital storefront soon. While not mentioned by name, one branch of the game does mention developer Sumo Digital. The rumored game also references Sackboy: A Big Adventure‘s codename listed in the recent GeForce Now leak.
One of the more obvious indications that this is Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a branch of the application named “sumoqa.” Put simply, a branch is a version of the game in development, which devs separate from other versions in order to test bugs or implement certain changes. In this case, “sumoqa” is likely a branch of the game that the devs use for quality assurance. As the name suggests, the “sumo” prefix is almost certainly for Sumo Digital: the dev studio behind Sackboy and LittleBigPlanet 3.
Another piece of evidence is the depot—a grouping of files that are sent to the Steam user—which features the name “Marmalade Content.” If you followed the Nvidia GeForce Now leak that happened earlier last month, you’ll know that a handful of PlayStation Studios PC ports were leaked. In addition to the now-confirmed God of War PC port, the list also included Sackboy: A Big Adventure under the codename “Project Marmalade.” The project has also apparently been in development as early as six months ago.
The news comes at an exciting time for PC users, who have been drip-fed PlayStation exclusive titles over the past year or so. Sumo Digital has also been busy, with Tencent recently acquiring the UK-based studio for $1.27 billion. Sackboy: A Big Adventure originally launched for the PS4 and PS5 back in November 2020, later receiving a patch allowing cross-play between PS4 and PS5 consoles. In our official review, we highlighted how Sackboy: A Big Adventure improved upon past LittleBigPlanet titles by removing the series’ level creation mechanics and focusing strictly on great platforming gameplay.[Source: SteamDB via Reddit]
