The LEGO Ideas and Unity teams want to make sure you don't forget about the Build Your Own Game contest that they're currently running. If you were looking for some help or inspiration on how to use Unity, they're hosting a game jam this coming Saturday, February 13th to show how the LEGO Microgame works in the Unity engine. To learn more about the contest and the live stream, read on!
Build your own game with the LEGO Microgame!
If you are in doubt whether to participate in the newest LEGO Ideas contest "Build your own game", join fellow Unity beginners in the next Unity x LEGO Game Jam: Ideas Edition on Saturday, Feb. 13. During the 2.5-hour livestream you will discover how to build your customized LEGO Microgame using newly released LEGO Behaviour Bricks to help make a great contest submission.
Register today for free and learn what you need to participate by visiting the Game Jam web page. Check Unity or LEGO Ideas Facebook channels for more news around this fun live event.
Just to remind you, besides two grand prize winners of the LEGO Ideas contest and two runner-ups, two entries in this contest will be randomly selected as winners too. No reason not to get involved!
By the way, EVERY participant of the "Build your own game" contest will receive a custom, limited edition LEGO Unity Minifigure!
As millions of people prepare for the Lunar New Year next Friday, Feb. 12, we want to help celebrate this festive occasion and release the LEGO Microgame "Year of the Ox" free expansion pack no later than Friday, Feb. 5. Greet your players with a giant "talking" ox, moo-ve them with a beautiful ancient Chinese vista and fill the night sky with colorful fireworks. But don't get too close to that fireworks machine - it might spell bad luck! Just visit the Unity Asset Store to download and import to your game.
Finally, if you want to hear more about the origin and the future of the Unity x LEGO Microgame, listen to Episode 5 of the LEGO Bits N' Bricks podcast.
Many thanks to BZPower's Ambassador Tufi Piyufi for sharing this info! This contest inspired me to at least download Unity to check it out, although admittedly real life has kept me from really diving in yet. How about you? Let us know in the Talkback!
