A new item has appeared on the Steam database, and all signs point to a rumored PC port of Sackboy: a great adventure soon in the digital store. Although not mentioned by name, a branch of the game developer Sumo mentions Digital. The rumor game also refers to Sackboy: a great adventure‘s codename mentioned in the recent GeForce Now leak.
One of the more obvious clues that this is Sackboy: a great adventure is a branch of the application called “sumoqa.” Simply put, a branch is a version of the game in development that separates from other versions to test bugs or make certain changes. In this case, “sumoqa” is probably a branch of the game that the developers use for quality assurance. As the name suggests, the “sumo” prefix is almost certainly for Sumo Digital: the development studio behind it pocket boy and LittleBigPlanet 3.
Another proof is the repository – a group of files sent to the Steam user – called “Marmalade Content.” If you’ve been following the Nvidia GeForce Now leak that happened earlier last month, you’ll know that a handful of PlayStation Studios PC ports have been leaked. In addition to the now confirmed god of war PC port, the list also included Sackboy: a great adventure under the code name “Project Marmalade.” The project has also apparently been in development six months ago.
The news comes at an exciting time for PC users, who have been awarded PlayStation exclusive titles over the past year. Sumo Digital has also been busy, with Tencent recently acquiring the UK-based studio for $1.27 billion. Sackboy: a great adventure originally launched for the PS4 and PS5 in November 2020, later received a patch that allows cross-play between PS4 and PS5 consoles. In our official review, we highlighted how: Sackboy: a great adventure improved compared to the past Little big planet titles by removing the level creation mechanics from the series and focusing strictly on great platform gameplay.
