The NINJAGO Global Design Lead has some tips for contestants to help them get inspired.
A video has been posted to promote the LEGO Ideas microgame event. This requires you to create a simple game that can be used in LEGO store arcade machines. Entry based on NINJAGO will be accepted and encouraged through a Unity store asset pack.
The video shows the contents of the pack. It also includes tips and tricks from Design Lead Sven Robin Kahl for making NINJAGO-themed gaming.
Smaller sets, or builds from larger models, can be seen in the clips including 30421 Skybound Plane from the titular season’s subtheme in 2016 as well as the temple from 70736 Attack of the Morro Dragon.
“If you want to create a great NINJAGO game, you have to have mastery, Spinjitzu and story integration,”Sven Robin Kahl. “Everyone that plays your game has to feel like they are in NINJAGO, they are ninjas, they are fighting monsters, they are in a fantasy world – fantasy is super important for us.”
The LEGO Ideas NINJAGO Microgame Contest is currently open for entries but will close November 4. The games will then go through a review and be sorted ready to go for a crowd vote. A winner will then be crowned, with the updated prize packages including 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System, 71741 NINJAGO City Gardens, 71360 Adventures with Mario Starter Course, 21166 The “Abandoned”Mine and the chance for the game feature to be added to the new arcade machines.
