Media Molecule Teases Next Project with Top of the Pops

Posted by Sammy Barker

It's a mystery

The online sleuths have certainly been slipping. Media Molecule's website has included a teaser page hinting at its next project for over six months now, but it's only just been discovered. The mysterious entry certainly isn’t hard to find. If you mosey your way over to the developer’s ‘Games’ page, you’ll spot a rather cryptic ‘?’ symbol. Give it a firm click with your cursor hand, and you’ll be treated to a blast of Toyah Willcox performing her 1981 hit ‘It’s a Mystery’ on Top of the Pops.

There’s very little else to look at, though the META data (used to inform search engines about the page's content) does include keywords such as “what we are doing at the moment” and “new game”. The Guildford-based developer is, of course, busy finishing off Tearaway for the PlayStation Vita, but it also has a larger team believed to be working on a next-generation project.

@Epic There has been some speculation that Media Molecule is working on the PS4's version of 'Home', which is actually not as wild as it seems. The developer has spent an extortionate amount of money on R&D since LBP2 released, which may suggest that it's working on something more than a game. I dunno. We'll see. It's an interesting theory, though.

@get2sammyb That's an interesting rumor. Playstation Home would be infinitely more interesting if it had the style and presentation of games like LittleBigPlanet or Tearaway.

@Epic They stated a couple of years ago that they were stepping away from LBP development. I had assumed that they were working on some new IP, but as Sammy stated they could be working on the next version of Home.
