A brand new LEGO® Ideas Contest has begun today but this one ditches bricks for pixels. After launching the LEGO Microgame initiative earlier this year, this new contest builds upon that by asking you to create a one-button LEGO NINJAGO game. Some of the games will be showcased in special LEGO NINJAGO X Unity arcade cabinets in LEGO Stores around the world, starting with the LEGO House in Billund. The Contest closes on November 4th and you can learn more about the contest below.
For our next LEGO Ideas contest “LEGO NINJAGO + One-Button Digital Game using the LEGO® Microgame” we are putting some arcade cabinets into our LEGO retail stores and would love to showcase your own game creations on them.
Both Unity and the LEGO Group have been hard at work improving the tools from the submissions and feedback from the last LEGO Ideas competition to help make it easier and more fun to make a game, and most importantly easier to share the fun you have made with others. There is an arcade cabinet in LEGO House at the moment, and we will be announcing some of the other global locations shortly. We have also been working closely with the LEGO NINJAGO team to help develop a library of resources and inspirations to spark your imagination. Want to know what makes a great LEGO NINJAGO game, see in the video what the LEGO NINJAGO Design Lead says.
So to the competition, we have three different categories:
- A LEGO NINJAGO themed game. Be Ninja!
- A game with a theme of your choice. What is one-button fun to you (Use of third-party IPs is NOT allowed).
- A game made only with LEGO behavior-bricks, so no additional scripting
If you are in doubt whether to participate in the next LEGO Ideas contest – visit LEGO Microgame page already today to learn more.
We cannot wait to see your amazing game creations.
