Lego has teamed up with Unity gaming machine maker Lego Microgame, where you can assemble virtual bricks to build the environment of your own gaming world. Microgame is free and requires no prior knowledge of video game programming. All you have to do to get started is follow a Unity lesson. Once you’ve designed your game to your liking, you can release a Lego minifigure to run, jump around, and maybe even die to an obstacle in your new virtual world.
Creative Mods in Unity will help you do things like build an enemy, customize menus and change the minifigure into an adventurer, pirate or pizza. They worked with BrickLink, so you can further customize by importing kits that are already built into Studio. There are also asset add-ons like Space Cadet and Danger Zone that you can unlock by doing things like sharing the game, updating the game, or attending a game.
Microgame is simple enough that Unity says you can create and customize a 3D game in less than an hour. They made navigation easier for beginners by saying that part of their mission included “making game development more accessible and reducing barriers for new users.”
