Glu Mobile and Granada Ventures have tied up to develop and publish a mobile game based on the award winning Little Britain TV series.

Following on from a successful console and PC video game from Mastertronic, the mobile offering will include four mini-games exclusively for the format featuring a number of action-packed challenges and adventures themed around the most popular characters. These will include a roller skating Vicky Pollard and fat fighter Marjorie Dawes.

The game will also feature the voices of Little Britain creators Matt Lucas and David Walliams, with narration from Tom Baker.

In addition, Glu will publish further mobile entertainment content. The game will be distributed primarily across the UK, Australia and New Zealand viz Glu's extensive network of operator partners.

"Little Britain is incredibly popular among mobile gaming's core audience of 18 to 34 year-olds, making it a perfect title to bring to the mobile platform," said Van Uong, licensing manager at Granada Ventures.
