Last month LEGO and Unity announced a new Microgame project that would enable everyone to make their own videogames featuring iconic LEGO minifigures and elements. Today they're revealing more details around that project, including the fact that creations made in Bricklink's Stud.io software will be able to be imported into games! To watch the new trailer, check out some screenshots, and learn more, read on!
If there's one thing that LEGO Games and the world's leading 3D content development platform, Unity, can agree on, it's that creativity comes in all forms - whether it's bringing your creation to life with LEGO bricks or adding lines of code to develop a video game. Game development can be intimidating for some, but Unity helps lower this obstacle with its series of Microgames - guided experiences designed to get new users working in the Unity Editor quickly and easily.
On October 26, Unity will release its first-ever Microgame created with LEGO Games. For some, the thought of taking your first steps into the world of video game creation can be overwhelming, but with the new LEGO Microgame, fans can use the familiar LEGO System in Play to help them construct their first game experience.
Further details about the partnership:
- The new LEGO Microgame, created with adult fans of LEGO in mind, is designed to make anybody's initial experiment with game development a fun and welcoming experience
- LEGO and Unity also worked with BrickLink, an online marketplace to buy and sell LEGO parts, minifigures and sets. This enabled every fan's MOC (My Own Creation) built in Studio to be brought to life in the game
- Requiring absolutely no coding, the LEGO Microgame, like all Unity Microgames, provides a friendly introduction to Unity, and is designed to help you move swiftly from opening your first project to sharing your first game in as little as 45 minutes on Unity's platform
- The new Microgame, released in the 25th Anniversary year of LEGO Games, is fun, accessible, and helps creators of all abilities dive into the world of game development for the first time
