Lego Universe and its Universal Audience
The official LEGO Universe website just put up an interview with Phillip Atencio, one of the upcoming massively multiplayer game’s art directors.There’s a lot of material in the interview but there were two things he touched upon that I found really interesting. First is how LEGO Universe is going to deal with violence and still attract younger gamers.
Brings up some good points, and makes me eager to see how the end result reflects this ideal. I do think he’s right – creativity can spawn some pretty amazing jedi mind tricks. Helping the user to remember its a game, its not real, its play, its not harmful, its exploratory, etc.
Quite a challenge, and exciting from a progression point of view. Proving once again that some things which seem impossible can be couched in the possible.
