“Everything is AWESOME!”
LEGO Games Retrospective, looking back over the last decade and a bit of TT Games’ LEGO partnership, from the emergence of LEGO Star Wars through to the powerhouse that has been LEGO Dimensions.
EPISODE TEN: THE LEGO MOVIE VIDEOGAME
Following on from the huge success of LEGO Marvel Super heroes TT Games moved quickly on to the next big project, another multi-generational, multi-platform release that would have the ease of an established story, but the difficulty of selling newly created characters to the video game fans.
Having finally created their own big budget movie franchise in 2014, LEGO and TT decided the new material was ripe for the games market and so “The LEGO Movie Videogame” was born.
For those not familiar with the film, I can’t imagine there are many of you left but, the LEGO Movie follows Emmet, a simple construction worker who is thrust into a world of prophecies, destiny, and universal destruction. Having accidentally stumbled across a fabled relic, Emmet must realise his potential and lead a rebellion against the evil Lord Business. This movie is basically Harry Potter meets the Matrix in LEGO form but we’re not here to review the movie, we’re here to discuss the game.
