Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has today revealed the list of finalists for PlayStation’s next intern – the chance of a lifetime for anyone looking to gain experience in the gaming industry. The month-long position, hosted by Swedish Studio Tarsier, will be awarded to the finalist who has created the best minigame using the recently released PlayStation®Vita title, LittleBigPlanet™PlayStation®Vita.
The overall winner will be flown to Sweden where they’ll spend one month working within the different departments of Tarsier and polishing their title from amateur excellence to an awesome piece of published content for the LBP community to enjoy!
Sackboy’s first PS Vita adventure hit shelves on September 19th and would-be interns had one month to get to grips with the all-new minigame feature and submit their efforts for consideration by October 10th.
To test and review each entry PlayStation assembled a crack team of portable gaming aficionados from across Europe. These PlayStation Judges have put each minigame through its paces before selecting the best of the best from each country. The final decision will now be handed over to the team at Tarsier – the studio behind LittleBigPlanet™PlayStation®Vita – to choose the overall winner. Submissions will be judged on gameplay, originality, and commercial appeal.
PlayStation has collaborated with Moleskine to create custom edition LittleBigPlanet notebooks. The top finalists from each participating country will each receive one of these.
Elliott Linger, Product Manager for LittleBigPlanet PlayStation Vita said: “We’ve had a great response to the internship opportunity and it’s been really fun seeing what LittleBigPlanet™PlayStation®Vita players have come up with for their minigames. We’re really excited to see who Tarsier selects as the ultimate winner.”
