Exclusive Lego Universe Video Offers First Game Glimpse

Lego Universe developer NetDevil has given us an exclusive peek into Lego Universe, the massive multiplayer online game where you can use bricks to collaboratively "build in real time", having adventures through maps that span across all Lego themes: from Space to City to Pirates to Ninjas to Underwater, everything will be in there. After creating the game tools, the game is now in the world design stage, where advanced Lego users are helping NetDevil to create the actual worlds.

This video was recorded in NetDevil's second Lego Universe Project event. According to Scott Brown, NetDevil's president, in the first LUP event they asked these Lego users to give them an idea of what the game should be like, which of course resulted in them building hundreds of actual Lego models of monsters, places, and all kinds of devices, machinery, and vehicles.

After that session, NetDevil started to program the software tools and the models needed to design Lego Universe terrains and structures. Now, in the second LUP event, they have trained those Lego people on the tools themselves, which they are using to create the virtual worlds. Apparently, NetDevil is very impressed by how fast these people—who in their day jobs are mostly engineers—got into the tools after just a three-hour class. Hopefuly that means things are progressing fast and we will see this game—which seems to have great potential—sooner than later.

I like this idea! As long as I can create my own YF-23 out of Lego like the one sitting on my desk, then I'm all for it! Hopefully they'll have all the parts that I need to build one.... >.> Also would be nice if I could make a makeshift Mechwarrior again also.

I also wonder if we can play the "Lego ramming" game like when I played with them as a kid. XD Made cars with battering rams on them and pushed them at full speed, then see which vehicle gets destroyed after several rams. ;P
