FROM BRICKS TO BITS: THE LEGO GROUP CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF LEGO® VIDEO GAMES

Anniversary marked by the launch of a new podcast which explores untold stories behind a quarter of a century of LEGO gaming innovation, from the release of Japan only Sega Pico title LEGO® Fun to Build to the upcoming release of eagerly awaited multi-platform title LEGO Star Wars™: The Skywalker Saga

This month sees the 25th anniversary of the release of the LEGO Group’s first ever video game and marks a quarter of a century of digital innovation.

Light Brick Studio Branches Out from LEGO Ventures

LEGO has been investing in a lot of gaming lately and it bodes well for the community. Last week, they announced that they are working with Unity for a new LEGO Microgame which you can create your own game using virtual bricks. Yesterday, VentureBeat reported that a game development studio called Light Brick Studio is now a independent company and is also supported by LEGO Ventures.

Light Brick Studio previously created Builder’s Journey for Apple Arcade and was released back in December 2019. The studio is now free to create to create games for LEGO as well as for any external partners they choose. This gives Light Brick Studio a lot leeway on what they are able to work on. I’m interested in seeing what will come of this and if they will expand beyond Apple Arcade since not many people are on it.

LEGO Supports BIONICLE: Quest for Mata Nui Fan Made Game

If you’re a fan of the LEGO BIONICLE theme, you may have known about a fan made open world game called BIONICLE: Quest for Mata Nui and LEGO has finally acknowledged it and are supportive of it. CrainyCreations, who has been developing it for six years, has been in contact with The LEGO Group and LEGO Games to discuss the future of the game. The game itself is set in the world of LEGO BIONICLE and it “retells the 2001 story of the Toa Mata’s quest for the Kanohi Masks of Power, culminating in their battle against Makuta.”

As many fans are aware, there is a fan made BIONICLE game 6 years in the making that was announced a few months ago. Recently the creator of the game made a statement online about speaking directly to TLG. I can confirm that CrainyCreations has been in touch with TLG. Statement below:

A message from LEGO Games:

“We can confirm CrainyCreations, the creators behind “Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui”, was in dialog with us (i.e. LEGO Games) to discuss the future plans of the game including ways the project can continue to exist. We see game development as an exciting opportunity to add new way to engage with the LEGO brick. In the LEGO Games team, we are always looking for ways to inspire and encourage the fan community including a recently BETA launched LEGO Microgame in partnership with Unity. Perhaps this can help give others the tools to do what CrainyCreations has done by encouraging and making
